A scene for the upcoming 2012 story "Quest for the Hearts: Epic Kendall"
Kendall, Meg and Jonni followed the ruthless Connie D'Amico to where the King of Darkness currently resides - Black Hollow in hopes of rescuing Kick who is apparently in eternal sleep. During their journey, Kendall is separated from Jonni and Meg (because of a certain Peter Griffin) which leaves her to find Kick and get into a major conflict with Connie alone.
Several minutes later, Kendall finally found Kick but is unable to wake him up and then she sees Connie looking rather confident and evil than before. She tells her that without his heart, Kick cannot be awaken nor can he release his powers which is what Connie intended to do all along - release Kick's powers to open a gateway to darkness. What will Kendall do? Read the story to find out.
Kendall looks at Kick who is in an eternal sleep.
"Kick?" she cried. "Please wake up."
But no respond.
"It's no use kid," said a female voice. "There's nothing you can do about it."
Kendall turns around and saw Connie.
"Connie?" Kendall said.
"You see kid," Connie started. "The keyhole that the King of Darkness and I intended to do cannot be completed so long as the Prince of Heart still sleeps."
"The prince? Kick's the prince?"
"Yes and without his power, the keyhole will remain incomplete. It is time the Prince awakens."
"Whoever you are, I won't let this happen. Let Kick and my friends go!"
"But first, you must give the Prince back his heart."
