|"Ruby's Past"||Distance, Part 1|
Citrine's sister returns, but she's not quite the same.
Citrine: Hello? [It echoes through the underground cavern, while the other EG members grumble.]
Ruby: Citrine, don't let the enemy KNOW where we are.
Star Sapphire: It's supposed to be a stealth mission.
Citrine: Geez, it's not like we can't handle it, right?
Pyro: Citrine, What is up with you lately? You're acting more spontaneous and random than normal.
Citrine: Just excited, that's all.
All EG at once: About what?
Citrine: You'll see.
[A rumble is heard, as slimy purple tentacles sprout from the cavern's walls.]
[The EG start attacking the tentacles, but keep missing. finally, Emerald grabs one of the tentacles and pulls the monster out. the EG then defeat it.]
Citrine: I got this one. *Walks over to gem, and bubbles it.*
[Later, at the temple...]
Pyro: Who's that?
Star Saphhire: And when did we get a doorbell?
[Citrine walks over to the door, opens it, and a purple gem walks in.]
[Ruby eyes her suspiciously]
Ruby: Did you install a doorbell while we were gone?
Iolite: What? No! [Pulls out human device] It's an app!
Citrine: Everyone, this is my sister, Iolite.
[Pyro walks up to Iolite to greet her.]
Pyro: Nice to --
[Pyro is cut off by Iolite]
Iolite: Blah, blah, blah. [Turns to Citrine] are they always this boring?
[Citrine leans in to whisper something into Iolite's ear and the two giggle.]
Citrine: C'mon, come see my lemon garden.
[Iolite runs after Citrine as they exit through the back door]
Onyx: I don't trust that gem...
Ruby: She does seem fishy.
[a fish falls on Ruby's head.]
Ruby: What the...?
[Ruby looks up to find Citrine and Iolite in the rafters, holding a bucket of fish.]
Citrine: Nice one!
/timeskip to morning/
[The EG, excluding Citrine, are outside the temple, which is newly TP'd.]
Star Sapphire: You think those humans did it?
Ruby: Couldn't of been. We have a fence.
Onyx: [sarcastically] with a sign saying, "please"!
[Citrine comes out the temple door and walks outside]
Citrine: What's up?
Ruby: [points to the TP on the temple] Some toilet tissue, apparently.
Citrine: do you need some help?
[Iolite steps outside to Citrine]
Iolite: sorry, EG, but my sis promised she would take me out to see the town.
Citrine: I kinda did. Good luck cleaning it up, though!
/timeskip to the next morning/
Pyro: Now it's not even funny anymore..
[the EG are standing in front of the temple with a giant sign saying, "Enchanted Gems? More like... uh...what rhymes with Enchanted?"]
Ruby: Hm.... Sweatpanted!
Iolite: [under breath] dang it, why didn't I think of that?
[Citrine comes out from the temple door]
Citrine: [reading from the sign] Enchanted Gems? More like Sweatpanted Gems!
[the other gems look toward the sign, which has been spray-painted over.]
[The gems turn to Citrine, who is holding a spray-paint can]
Ruby: Citrine?! Did you do this?
Citrine: Do what?
[Ruby grabs the spray-paint can and shoves it in Citrine's face.]
Ruby: I'm talking about THIS!
Citrine: I didn't do that! You look great in sweatpants!
Ruby: That may be true, but you've backstabbed the team! Citrine...
[Ruby looks away as he summons his sword and makes Citrine retreat.]
[Ruby bubbles it and sends it to the burning room.]
[Ruby turns to the EG who look aghast.]
[Ruby turns back to Iolite]
Ruby: It looks as though we have a position open.
Iolite: Nah, not interested. I'd rather kill you.
Ruby: Wait what?
[the EG stare in horror as Iolite turns into a giant purple squid that smashes a giant tentacle through the temple.]
Iolite: Now that I have my annoying sister out of the way, I can proceed to destroy you.
Ruby: We need to get Citrine back!
[A tentacle picks up a bubble with Citrine's gem in it]
[lifts to beak to try to eat it]
Ruby: Help me attack this thing!
[the EG attack the tentacle and the squid falls to the ground]
[the squid is buried in the sand while Citrine is regenerated.]
Citrine: What happened?
Star: Well, your sister turned into a squid and we attacked it and it died.
Citrine: but how did I get in a bubble?
[Ruby shuffles nervously and chuckles]
Ruby: Funny thing...
Pyro: Guys, didn't that battle seem a bit...anticlimactic?
[a rumbling is heard]
Iolite: It sure did!
[a tentacle lifts up the EG into the air]
Iolite: I'd love to stay, but I have to escape while laughing evilly.
[Iolite drops the EG while she laughs evilly and swims into the ocean.]
[the EG close their eyes, bracing for impact. it never comes.]
[Slowly, Onyx opens his eyes]
Onyx: This is weird.
[The EG are sitting on a giant yellow bird]
Ruby: Hey, where's Citrine?
[The bird squaks]
Citrine: Right here.
Ruby: Citrine?! You can turn into a giant bird now?
Citrine: I guess when my sister hypnotized me into vandalizing the temple, it had some weird side effects.
[The EG look into the sunset as they are majestically soaring through the air]
Citrine: We should do this more often.
[the episode ends.]
