Skarner backed away. "Hmph."

"We can eat once we find the cave." Hazel grinned. "Great job, Decadent."

Decadent nodded. "N-No problem."

"I guess we can go no-"

Hazel was cut off by a flash and a loud clap of thunder.

"Storm. We better get moving, people." Skarner said, raising his voice.

Hazel nodded, and skittered off to go look for the cave. 

Augustus, Amethyst, and Decadent followed. 

"So, what are we looking for?" Amethyst asked.

Hazel shrugged. "If I recall, there were rocks."

"Rocks. Noted." Skarner nodded.

And so, the group went along, looking for rocks along the shore.

Lightning stuck a nearby tree, and it burst into flames. 

Suddenly, Hazel squeaked. "Ow! That stings!"

"What stings?" Augustus asked.

"... Something stung me, I think."

"All I saw was lightning hit a tree." Skarner said.

"... Something still hurt me." Hazel glanced up to the sky, curious. 

"Probably your imaginati-" Amethyst abruptly cut off. "... the hell?"

"What?"

"Something just hit me. Stung."

"... You felt it too? What is it?"

"Something must be going on." Skarner murmured. "And it won't be good."

"... We should get to that cave soon." Hazel muttered, picking up the pace.

And then it began to rain. Barely sprinkling, but it didn't matter. Every drop was felt.

It was as though the rain was acidic.

"This isn't normal rain." Skarner grunted, his shield going up.

"Obviously." Hazel mumbled. "It stings..." She flinched. "A lot." 

"Acidic, most likely." Augustus muttered. A nearby, foregin-looking tree was uprooted by vines, and Augustus held its enormoous trunck over the group as some sort of umbrella.

It began to rain harder.

"I didn't even know it was possible." Augustus added.

Thanks to the acidic downpour, the tree trunk was already full of holes. 

"Dammit." Amethyst muttered. "We're screwed if we don't find that cave."

"I think I see rocks up ahead!" Hazel piped up.

Sure enough, there were rocks ahead. Barely visible, but rocks along the shore of the beach.

"I can carry you all if you want. It'll be quicker." Skarner offered.

"If it's quicker, sounds like a good idea." Augustus agreed.

But then, Hazel tripped. One of her vines slipped, and she fell behind. She screamed, the only shelter from the rain being a small barrier of vines.

"Oh, crap..." Augustus murmured. He tried to scoop her up with some vines of his own, but every movement stung under the rain. "Crap, crap, crap..."

Quickly, Skarner grabbed those who were under the log, putting them on his back. He held the remains of the log with his stinger above them, and then proceeded to pick up Hazel, doing the same. He then sprinted toward the cave. "How badly are you hurt?" Were his only words.

"I-I think I'm... m-most okay." Hazel mumbled, trembling. "My arms... sting a lot... but otherwise... yeah..."

Augustus, of course, was insanely worried. "Are you sure you're okay? You... you were out in freaking acid rain!"

"Yeah. I'm... fine..."

Fortunately, once the cave was reached, it provided great shelter.

Skarner threw the log away, as it was reduced to almost nothing. "I hope Paula is suffering." He murmured.

"I do too." Augustus muttered. "And King. And everyone else that's made us suffer." 

"So, I guess we wait until the rain lets up." Amethyst muttered.

Decadent held up the basket. "I brought food."
