BEETLE: We’re gonna need something to cut this wi–
There’s a SWISH of air and the fish is transformed into perfectly cut sashimi. Beetle and Kubo stare at Monkey. She shrugs.
MONKEY: Sword Unbreakable.
They all sit down together. It’s a nice, quiet, gentle moment. Our three heroes, eating under the sun. Kubo sits right between Beetle and Monkey, but he isn’t really eating.
Beetle, on the other hand, is stuffing his face. Hanzo Origami stands on his lap, using his tiny paper sword to
lance chunks of fish from a makeshift plate and toss them up into Beetle’s open mouth.
Monkey watches sourly.
MONKEY: Must you play with your food?
She grimaces as Beetle replies with a full mouth.
He notices Kubo looking at them with an odd look on his face.
BEETLE: What’s the matter, Kubo? You act like you’ve never had a meal sitting between a monkey and a beetle before.
KUBO: I’ve never had a meal sitting between anyone before.
Monkey’s face softens.
MONKEY: Come on. Eat. You need energy. And * this is much better than whale soup.
