Hero: I... really should lay off the dragon's blood. Where am I now?
Boss: Mirrors, mirrors everywhere! Pick one! Only one! Listen carefully to the drums, mortal! Listen too carefully, you may forget which is your heartbeat.
Hero: Who is there? Reveal yourselves.
Boss: How can I, if I am you?
Hero: What do you mean by that?
Boss: Listen carefully, the answer you seek will come.
Hero: I hear you, voices and drums, but I don't hear any answers.
Boss: That may be so - but, why do the drums beat? What are the voices saying? Why am I here?
Hero: To ruin my day, obviously. Can I leave now?
Boss: Ah... mortal. All is space, you cannot leave what is nowhere.
Hero: I've slain a monster at the edge of space... I'm sure I can leave here.
Boss: Have you? Look in the mirror, mortal. You have never slain a single monster.
Hero: What are you talking about?
Boss: You can't fool me... A slayer never doubts their slaying.
Hero: I have slain many monsters! I am a hero! I am leaving now!
Boss: You would taunt them until they attacked you; you'd fall into a deep sleep; when you wake, there would be blood everywhere.
Hero: ...Nobody knows that...
Boss: Now that I have your attention, let me show you something.
Boss: Look at your hands, mortal.
Hero: I wil - there's blood on them!
Boss: This is the blood of your parents.
Hero: No, that's not true! A monster broke into our house one night and took them away from me! Why do you think I slay monsters?!
Boss: Ahahahahaha, mortal. The only way I can show you the blood of your parents on your hands is if I saw it for myself. Why is your parent's blood on your hands? You never touched their bodies...
Hero: I... Don't... Know...
Boss: Listen to the voices now... What do you hear?
Hero: I hear "Who am I", "I am a monster" and "Who am IVIonster".
Boss: I thought you were a heroic mortal?
Hero: I am... I thought I was!
Boss: You are not. Embrace the madness...
Hero: Wait... That monkey told me the same thing, but I fell asleep and woke up to his severed head in my hand.
Boss: I cannot tell you anymore... I will ask you one question before I go.
Boss: Why did the monkey never change? Why did you?
Hero: ...Who am I...? A monster?
