Grace kept care for her friends.


"Forest, yes?" Skarner asked.

"Forest're nice!" Hazel chirped. "I'm pretty sure that's where we're supposed t'be going..."

"Yes. I suppose. Now..music was our clue, since we can't kill this thing. Wait. Since we don't have them, how will we convince it to give us the piece?" Skarner asked.

"Well, that could be... a problem." Distortion agreed quietly. "It's up to us, I suppose."

"Who knows, the music could be, like, magic or something!" Hazel shrugged. "Could make it all happy!"

"Even for your positivity, that's a bit of a stretch." Amethyst muttered.

"... I know."

"I suppose we'll find out.." Skarner murmured, walking into the forest.

Everyone followed.

"At least place itself isn't too bad." Augustus said, looking around. "At least, i-in my opinion. It's nice. Peaceful."

"Get over your attraction to trees." Gardenia materialized from the shadows, nudging him.

The forest soon stopped being all green and happy - most of the trees and plants now were withered, dead. There were a few withered bones on the floor, too.


"We're close, I'd say." Shocker murmured.

"That's... less peaceful." Augustus remarked, swatting away a withered branch, and accidentally breaking it off in the process. 

"I guess there really is decaying power with this guy." Red muttered, poking quizzically at a bone on the ground.

A faint music box, playing an old song (Grandfather's clock) was heard in the distance.

"Hey, you hear that?" Shocker asked.

"Yes. We're very, very close." Skarner nodded.

"That must be the music!" Hazel grinned. "It's nice. Calming!" She hummed along, though tripping over the remains of a skeleton kind of ruined it.

Ahead was a cobblestone shrine. It was old, crumbled, and had moss growing on a few of the stones.

On a small, raised stone, just a bit smaller than Hazel, was a music box, playing the song. It seemed to be windable, and it was winding down.

Behind it, was a taller stone, with a clay plate on top. On the plate, was the final piece. The piece was dark, and had the symbol of a skull engraved on the top.

"Well, that must be the piece." Gardenia materialized by the stone. "I dunno if we'll be able to just grab it, though."

Hazel was more focused on the music box. "Ooh, it's so pretty!"

The music box got slower and slower, until it eventually stopped.

It grew quiet.

Very quiet.

Haze began to emerge from the cracks in the cobblestone.

Hazel stared at the haze, frowning. "What's that?" She then glanced at the music box. "Aww, it stopped..."

Creepy, faint whispers could be heard.

A figure began to emerge from the cobble, more haze surrounding it.

"...Oh no." Skarner murmured, stepping back.

Hazel took a couple steps back, wary of the haze. "T-This must be our guy, huh? Okay. Uh. Whaddawedoooo?"

"Grace said music." Skarner nodded.

The figure did not speak, as it came out of the ground completely. It looked up at the group, and started to move towards them.

Everyone took a single step back.

"M-Maybe we should turn back on the music box..." Hazel muttered. "But the haze is all there..."

"Maybe we need to get it away from the box." Skarner nodded.

The creature crept closer, slowly. The grass around it withered away.

"Do we distract it, while someone else goes to wind it up?" Distortion suggested. "Assuming that gets rid of the haze, too..."
