The rat screeched, scampering away from the group as they used the opportunity to move on. The left teleporter brought them into what appeared to be some sort of sewing room. A large black cabinet sat to their left, and before them was a large table with a fancy sewing machine on top, a large red fabric hanging from it. The decaying smell gave way to the smell of sugarplums, and a faint hint of cotton candy. Once again, two panels sat before them.

Perfuma gulped and took a few steps forward, eyes shut and body tense as she inched to the center of the room. Pausing a few moments, she opened an eye and looked around before turning to the group. "It looks like this room is safe...?"

As the young mage ventured forward, a loud crinkling noise sounded as he stepped on some paper. Looking down, he'd see it was a wanted poster with his own picture on it. WANTED: DEAD OR ALIVE was written at the top.

"Oh my God..." Yang was staring at the building next to them, where plastered all over the wall were their pictures on wanted posters. Every single one had the 'Alive' option violently scratched out.

"There they are!" As soon as one of the guards cried out, the world glitched out.


The city turned fully abandoned, empty husks of buildings surrounding them all. The wanted posters stayed the same, but even the guards changed form.



"By order of the sheriff, don't let them escape!!"

@Takumi
“As safe as it can, I suppose.” Haru took a few steps forward as well, coming up next to Perfuma. “I wonder if we’re just supposed to blindly walk around until we find what we’re looking for or should we take a look around? At least…there’s hopefully no rat this time.”

"Explore? Do you think we'll find something more in here?" Draq looked around, scratching his head. "I guess that cabinet and sewing table are our best bets...but I don't know if they'd leave us a clue since they're trying to stop us."

"It has to be worth a try, if we're going to save Godiva!" Perfuma walked to the large red fabric and pulled on it. "It's stuck...!"

“Let me help,” Haru went to help Perfuma try to pull the fabric, never knew what you could find in places like this that could help them. Unless this was another trap for a rat or some other creature to get the jump on them.

With the tarp pulled away, it became clear that what was looked like a sewing machine was actually a record player. However, the record seemed to be missing...

“ I’ll go and see if I can find a record in the cabinet,
Verde replied, figuring it was as good a place as any to start looking.

Well that was weird, Haru thought to herself. “Be careful,” She remarked to Verde. “There could still be something waiting for us somewhere.”

Shuffling through the cabinets would reveal a record, though it looked rather beaten up. "Will it play anything?" Perfuma asked.

"Only one way to find out!" Taking the record, Draq put it onto the player, and soon a crackling audio played. There was no noise save for the static at first, until a woman spoke.

"Are you ready for tonight's story, my king? Now, you remember where we left off, don't you? Yes, that's it. The Pirate King was looking for his treasure, the Red Orb. With this orb, he would finally rule the seas. The Pirate King left the interior of the cemetery, and was now outside on the mountain itself. His right-hand man was beside him like always, and his other mate had been left behind to deal with something important. But what neither knew was that she had left their world, captured by a wicked foe. Hm? What's that? Her name? Yes, her name waswaswaawaswaswaswaswaswaswaswaswas--"

Draq lifted up the needle as it snagged in a sharp dip in the record. "That was Miss Shahrazad talking...you don't think she's here too, do you?"

"Let's not cut out the possibility," Haru remarked before looking over to the teleporters. "So which one should we go on next?"

" I think she might know more than we do. I think going right is incredibly important, we should try to stick to the same pattern, so if we get lost, we can backtrack and figure out what went wrong."

The right panel would take them...

...

...

...to the right panel of the entrance.

"Oh, come on!" Draq exclaimed, only for Perfuma to put a hand on his arm.

"Deep breaths...just relax...we'll figure this out." She looked around. "I...guess we go back to the right, then?"

Draq tried to take a deep breath, but sighed instead, slumping his shoulders. "Do we have to? How do we make sense of anything here?"

As the two continued talking, someone might notice a strange shadow from one of the lamps in front. Almost like there was something obstructing a portion of the light...

Haru perked up. “Hmm?” She looked over to the lamp in front of them. “Do you see that?” She grabbed the ax off her back and went in for a closer look.

There seemed to be a scrap of paper within the lamp. It was the written version of what Ms. Shahrazad had spoken on the record.

The Pirate King was looking for his treasure, the Red Orb. With this orb, he would finally rule the seas. The Pirate King left the interior of the cemetery, and was now outside on the mountain itself. His right-hand man was beside him like always, and his other mate had been left behind to deal with something important. But what neither knew was that she had left their world, captured by a wicked foe. Her name was

Coincidentally, the paper was ripped right at the same point that the record cut off.

There was something on the back of the paper, too:
Vanity: 3, 411Bedroom: 10, 11
Dining Room: 4, 5, 10Living Room: 7, 8, 9Bathroom: 2, 3, 6
Sewing Room: 1, 2, 8Entrance: 1, 9Study: 5, 6, 7

"I found something," Haru showed the back of the paper to the others. "I think these are the coordinates for those teleporters. What do you think?"

" Those look like they are. So, if I am reading this correctly, we need to get into the dinning room to make it into the bedroom and find our way. The way we were going seemed right."

"There has to be something that we're missing," Perfuma said. "Though looking at this paper...numbers 1 and 9 are the teleporters in here, right? We used 9..." Her finger searched for the room with a 9, landing on the Living Room. "...and we ended up here. And from there, we can either end up in the Study or the Sewing Room, and we went to the latter."

"What's got me is that some of these numbers are different," Draq added, looking at the paper from behind the others. "Some are bold, and some are underlined! I think that means something more...and maybe that story, too."

"The story?" Perfuma raised her eyebrows. "But why would that matter? It's just nonsense!"

"Maybe. But if it was, why was it both in the sewing room AND on the paper? Almost like someone really wants us to have it..."

"Maybe we have to follow a specific one?" Haru asked "Maybe the underlined ones are a clue that will help us get through this?"
