Mario's Final Quest

He had worried that she would not fall in love with him. Why hadn't he considered whether he would find her worth dying for? It was not a matter of time. He had gained more lives than he had lost. But after conquering his last world, he wondered aloud, "Is this what I've been chasing after the whole time?" He daydreamed of plumbing again. He would drop Super from his name altogether and quietly battle broken pipes and clogged systems.
