    "It is, yes," stated Impa, nodding to Sir Meta Knight as he asked about the method with which the flow of time could be altered. As for his remark about keeping the power safe, she simply gave him a knowing smile before noting, "It might seem so, but it's actually not so simple. Only certain musical instruments are linked to that power, and even then, one has to learn very specific songs. You would be correct in their being protected, though… the knowledge of both the instruments and said songs are kept as closely guarded secrets to prevent just such a thing from happening."

    Impa could certainly relate to wishing that certain beings had stayed felled instead of being whisked away here, but various battles over the past couple of years had taught her that one could never quite predict what might get pulled here. As it stood, she had to look at the bright side of things, in that she could personally ensure that by encountering such foes again, not only could she ensure that they did not harm this world, but in some cases, she could even add to her charges' own extensive experience. The chance to see a familiar foe was often as much a relief to see something she knew as it was a bit of inner aggravation if she knew a particular enemy had already been defeated. Still, she gave the masked warrior an understanding nod. There were some opponents that the Sage of Shadow hoped never arrived here at all.

    Detecting the hint of relaxation that Sir Meta Knight allowed himself at her words, Impa simply smiled softly. His statement was still very true, even if the definition of home might have to change for him. Dreamland would always be his home in his heart, but she hoped that he would be able to at least make the most of the new home he could find here.

    "I'm glad that you were able to help best such foes," said Impa as the duo continued across the grasslands. "So long as you always keep that warrior's spirit and drive to do what you must, I am sure that that defense will hold true."

    "Ah, that does make a difference," Sir Meta Knight said with a nod. "Guarding the secrets of the songs would make it difficult for the power to fall into the wrong hands." If only the powers of Popstar and its surrounding galaxy could be guarded in such a way... There were safeguards in place--for example, Nova requiring the power stars in order to be summoned--but some wicked beings were cunning and determined enough to retrieve the powers anyway, or trick others into retrieving them for them. His brow furrowed for a moment at the unpleasant memory, but he quickly shook it off.

    He smiled faintly at Impa's comment. "Yes, and the same goes for you. You have certainly demonstrated your strength, from what I have seen, and I have no doubt that you are fully able to defend things both in this world and in your own, should you be able to return there." Of course, he had only seen her fight the Grizzos thus far, but her techniques were still quite impressive, and he wondered how she would fare against different foes--as well as, if not better than, how she had handled the Dreamland fauna they'd encountered, he was sure.

    The Grizzos might not have been the strongest of the Dreamland fauna, but they were nothing to scoff at. The same could be said of the next beast that sought to approach the intrepid duo, as although he himself was not the mightiest of the mighty, he was certainly not a force to be underestimated. That stood regardless of his own stature and fierce appearance, and whilst his own height landed him somewhere between the Puffball and Sheikah he was swiftly approaching, he was ready to show these two new interlopers the power of fire.

    "RRRRRRAAAAAARRRR!"

    With a mighty roar, the next monster to literally blaze across the Samba Heartlands suddenly rocketed forward, barely giving the two warriors the chance to see his true form before his speed had him appear as a large fireball. Aimed right for the larger target, he sought to get a surprise attack in before he ricocheted back, standing proudly on all fours as he growled at the pair.
    Dreamland had found itself represented once more in the grasslands this afternoon, for in the wake of the two Grizzos had come the dynamic Fire Lion. He had been faced before back in Sir Meta Knight's homeworld but here in this strange, new place, he was set to emerge the victor!

    "Indeed," noted Impa, smiling a bit as Sir Meta Knight mused on the protective strategy that kept instruments such as the Ocarina of Time and the Wind Waker as well as their respective songs safe. No matter what period of time an instrument was from, its whereabouts and true power were always kept a closely guarded secret, and the songs that it could play were held safe by the small number of people that knew of them.

    She herself had been the one to pass on Zelda's Lullaby to Link, a sacred melody that only those connected to the royal family knew. As for the songs that helped transport one to the various temples in Hyrule, those had once more been a closely guarded secret so that by the time she passed them on to Princess Zelda under the guise of Sheik, only the two of them and Rauru himself  were aware of the notes. The same had held true with the melodies of the Great Sea, and those across all other points of the timelines. Evil power could still seek to cause harm of course, but the songs could be used to hinder and even help combat their own intentions.

    At the masked warrior's words regarding her strength and being able to best some of their foes from Hyrule, Impa's smile grew a touch. "I certainly appreciate that… both here and in Hyrule, I have always striven to do my best to keep my home and those close to me safe. It is the way of my people as much as it is of my own path."

    Before the Sheikah could ponder too much on the note of the impossibility of returning to her homeworld, she suddenly perked up at sensing a new presence in their immediate vicinity. Her red gaze narrowed and she focused forward, but no sooner had she found the source of what she had detected than had a stream of fire appeared, bolting right for her.

    Quickly disappearing on the spot to dodge the attack, Impa soon reappeared several feet away, her sights locked on the monster that had doubled back from where it had charged her. Standing somewhere just over three feet tall stood a small, fiery lion. She had evaded his strike, but she could tell that this unfamiliar foe was far quicker and stronger than the last pair of beasts that she and Meta Knight had met. Taking the stature of this monster into consideration, Impa drew her Sheikah Blade as she asked, "This would not happen to be another creature from Dreamland, would it?"

    Either way, she saw an opening, so she was set to take it. Charging up her blade with the power of shadows, Impa dashed forward, slashing at the Fire Lion before strafing back around it to create some distance between its two possible targets. He might have had more stamina than the Grizzos, but the Sage of Shadow was set to take him down the same as she was with any other enemy.

    "I have done the same," Sir Meta Knight said in response to her statement about keeping her home safe. "I wish to defend my home, and to bring out the best in it." It was part of his motivation for most of the things he did--Dreamland had so much potential, and it was wasted as most of its citizens simply ate and played and dreamed. That was why he wanted to take over--to bring out the potential of the rich land, and to defend it from the nightmares that plagued it.

    Speaking of nightmares...

    The roar immediately snagged his attention, and he stared in surprise at the enormous fireball that was barreling toward them. Sir Meta Knight flew back to avoid the attack, but it had been aimed at Impa, who easily avoided it. When the fireball bounced back and the creature took its true shape, the knight's eyes widened in amazement.

    At Impa's question, he nodded, not looking away from the beast. "Yes, that is Fire Lion!" While not one of Dreamland's most terrifying monsters, it was still a force to be reckoned with. What it was doing here he wasn't fully sure, but there was no time to think on that now. "It is a very strong foe, stronger than the Grizzos. Do not let your guard down!"

    Flying up into the air, he allowed the Sheikah to attack first, watching as she launched an impressive attack with her sword. It made him wish he could still use all of his own techniques; a mach tornado would be quite useful here. But, seeing an opening, he dove toward the Fire Lion, striking at it a few times with Galaxia.

    Fire Lion's opening tack had been an unfortunate miss, but the mighty predator was not about to let that deter him. The larger target was swift, but so was he!

    *SLASH!*

    However, even with his own speed, he was not swift enough to evade the strong attack that she met him with. Growling in both pain and aggravation from that strike, Fire Lion's focus soon found a new target in the form of the Puffball that sought to dive forward and unleash a pair of his own sword attacks on him. Despite the damage he had sustained from the first exchange, the monster was able to narrowly dodge the attacks, right before he rounded on the knight and leapt straight for him. Hoping to tackle him to the ground with the pounce, Fire Lion let out another fierce roar as he landed, with or without his prey.

    Impa had no doubt that Sir Meta Knight had done much the same as she had, and although he was in an entirely new world, she was sure that his own drive would help carry him forward here, both before and after he accepted that he was to remain here.

    After the initial attack from the beast, Impa narrowed her red gaze as Meta Knight confirmed that their next foe was in fact from Dreamland. It bore the fitting name of Fire Lion, and as she focused her Eyes of Truth on it, she could already pick up much of its own power, even before her companion voiced his warning about it. As for not letting her guard down… "I wouldn't dream of it."

    Impa's own Shadow Strike was followed up by two near misses from Meta Knight, at which point Fire Lion rounded himself to retaliate against the masked warrior. Thankfully, his attempted pounce had been as successful as his opening attack had been, and she herself was set to take this chance to engage the beast again.

    Switching her Sheikah Blade to her left hand for the moment, Impa charged up a Shadow Blade in her right hand before quickly disappearing on the spot. A blink later, and she reappeared by Fire Lion, right before unleashing three quick slashes with her magic-based weapon. Following through with the final strike, Impa dashed forward a short distance before pivoting around into a defensive position. The battle was still young, and she was set to face whatever this monster had in store for them next.

    The knight's eyes narrowed as his attacks missed, but he didn't have time to focus on his failure right now. The Fire Lion made a leap for him, and he whipped over to the side, spinning smoothly in the air before righting himself.

    He watched as Impa scored a moderate hit, nodding in appreciation before turning to face his target again. This was a beast that Kirby had fought... and if Kirby had defeated such a creature, he could not call himself a true warrior if he could not do the same, especially since this monster must have been weakened from its passing through a portal, if it had indeed come here that way.

    The metaphorical gears began to turn in Sir Meta Knight's head as he briefly considered this, but he had to focus on the battle at hand. Focusing his energy into Galaxia, he slashed it in the air twice horizontally and once vertically, sending three sword beams at the fiery beast.

    Whilst he had missed his pounce attack at the masked Puffball, Fire Lion kept his momentum up and continued to dart forward. His speed did not help him dodge each attack from his two foes, but he did manage to turn their otherwise respectable attempts into glancing blows. Growling as he caught the shadowy slash of the larger target before one of the sword beams from the smaller one, he quickly rounded back on the duo, set to finally make his own moves count for more than dodging.

    "RRRRRROOOOOOOAAARRRR!!"

    With another fierce roar, Fire Lion's burning gaze landed on the Sheikah, and a split second later, he bolted forward in his fireball form, hoping to land a good hit here. Whether he connected or not, he dashed on past her, soon landing back in his true appearance as he kept the pair in his sights.
