Chapter 8
A huntin' we will go

I began searching for any sight of guild members or a sight of the mysterious Ring-Ring; unfortunately it would not be an easy task as the various guilds operate rather infrequently; so finding them out in the open would be like finding a needle in a hay-stack. Finding Ring-Ring would not be any easier as I've heard from some of the other babies is that Ring-Ring's missions are very rare ones, so the chances of seeing him were like once in a blue moon. I searched and I searched until I was feeling very tired; at that point, the Holdy Nanni-bot came for me and put me into a crib. As tired as I was, I couldn't catch any winks until this floating Nanni-bot appeared above my head. It hovered over me and sprinkled this mysterious sand of all over my face; as soon as it hit me; I felt my eyelids dropping until finally I was asleep.

Chapter 7
On my own

   After ANNA disappeared from my sight; a Holdy unit came and got me. I was completely motionless as if traumatized by ANNA's absence after she had been with me for a bit. I had only known her for a short while yet for as short as it was; she had been the closest thing to a mother that I had. I didn't know how to proceed from here; the idea of me exploring this place didn't seem quite so great anymore. The Holdy brought me to an enormous playpen that contained all sorts of fun and games like a sandbox, a ball pit and even a big bouncy castle and set me down near some of the other babies who were playing in the sandbox.
  They stared at me as if they were wondering what I was going to do. Eventually one of them attempted to 'break the ice' so to speak and asked, “Do ya wanna play with us?” Unfortunately I was in no mood to play with them; neither did I feel like giving them an answer. My silence

And then she was gone

  I had finally learned to crawl in this newborn baby form and I was feeling mighty proud of myself when who should happen to appear but that butler robot, Plot-worth. “Hello there Plot-worth.” I said to him before he replied, “That's Sir Plot-worth to you, you little whelp.” he said in a fit of indignity before he regained his composure and promptly apologized. “I must apologize for my unbecoming behavior I have displayed; I tend to get testy whenever I feel that I am not getting the respect that I am accorded.” I had always pictured him as a stickler of details such as these, he's the kind of robot butler who favors the proper decorum above all else. After his apology, he cleared his throat and then stated, “I believe I am to offer praise to young master Jaden, you have successfully mastered crawling and thus, you have cleared one part of your newborn mode; now you just to learn how to wal

Going the distance

 “Now we will begin the crawling portion of your training; luckily this should be the easiest portion of it.” ANNA calmly said to me as I began to try exert some control over my limbs. Still it wasn't as easy as I imagined that it would be because my limbs felt like they had no feeling in them. Nonetheless with continued practice; I had hoped that I would begin to crawl with relative ease. “Hmm you are doing a little better than you were but I feel that you may need a break soon.” ANNA said in her usual caring tone and with those words; she picked me up into her arms and gave me that bottle again.
  By this point, I had gotten used to this whole bottle-feeding thing; I figured that when you are in Rome; you should do as the Romans do. If I am going to live here as a baby; I may as well be the best baby I can possibly be. She finished feeding me and then proceeded to burp me or at least I think that is what

       A fresh Change of Pace

       We arrived at the changing area and thankfully I myself did not require changing at the moment but I imagined that it would be an inevitability that I would soon need to have my diaper changed. The area had many changing tables, to accommodate all the babies who would need changing. The area was all walled-off; probably to give the other babies a measure of privacy while they were being changed. The walls themselves were pretty plain; at least compared to the rest of the nursery, for they looked like typical nursery walls. The walls were decorated with some nice wallpaper with choo-choo trains on them, with the images of the trains appearing as if they are whizzing by so that kids can think of trains on a country road; while the attendant can focus on the job at hand. “So who are we meeting here in a place like this?” I asked in a puzzled tone. “Oh, just a close fri

What's your purpose?

       
We headed toward the gold star cafe and during that time; I sought more information from ANNA about what a Nanni-bot was. “Well you see, my little one; each of us have a specification ; that is a job that each of us is best at. For example, Changie is usually responsible for changing the babies' diapers, Holdy transports the babies from place to place and Moby soothes the babies and puts them to sleep; that is just to name a few of them; there are many more.” “What is your specification then?” I asked as she continued on our journey. “My purpose is to care for the newborn babies which means that I can do each of the jobs the other Nanni-bots can do.” She stated with some pride in her speech before admitting, “But I am also the weakest, for although I can do all of the jobs the other Nanni-bots can do; I will only be around until you are able to move around freely; that

Welcome to Baby Steps

     I wondered what would happen to me; what would be my destination? I awoke to find myself in this crib in a strange new world; it was brightly colored like a set of pastel crayons. As I attempted to gain my bearings, I saw a yellow wall that enclosed the entire area and it had appeared to have drawings all over it that had been drawn on by sidewalk chalk.
     Looking at myself; I seem to have shrunk in size and instead of my usual clothes; I seem to be wrapped up in something like swaddling clothes. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get up or move my lower body.  As I continued trying to move, I heard this sound of an old man clearing his throat,”Harrumph!”.
      I turned and saw this strange robot that resembled an old butler, he had a monocle on his left eye and he had a false white mustache. His body had the garb resembling something like a tuxedo and he was clea

Down the rabbit-hole

    They say that a very curious Alice went down a hole to Wonderland; following a little white rabbit without any knowledge where that rabbit would lead her. That is the life of those whose curiosity may be greater than their common sense;  that is my life unfortunately.
    I'll start from the very beginning; my name is Jaden Marsh, a college student in my early 20s. I have recently completed my introductory course in medicine and I am visiting my uncle's home during my vacation time. His home was a nice place; really befitting the importance of his job. My uncle was a brilliant engineer but a man with many, many secrets; he would almost never come home and when he did; he was always in a rush to lock himself behind the door of his bedroom. He had no other family besides me; his wife and his child had passed away in a fire that had consumed his previous house and the experience had killed him emotionally. Despit

Activity


First off, I wanted to apologize for how long it took to get Chapter 8 up. I honestly had a lot of computer issues such as the hard drive in my laptop deciding whether to fail or keep chugging on.

Also I'm trying to decide how proceed with my story; wondering which direction I should go with it.
       

Chapter 8
A huntin' we will go



I began searching for any sight of guild members or a sight of the mysterious Ring-Ring; unfortunately it would not be an easy task as the various guilds operate rather infrequently; so finding them out in the open would be like finding a needle in a hay-stack. Finding Ring-Ring would not be any easier as I've heard from some of the other babies is that Ring-Ring's missions are very rare ones, so the chances of seeing him were like once in a blue moon. I searched and I searched until I was feeling very tired; at that point, the Holdy Nanni-bot came for me and put me into a crib. As tired as I was, I couldn't catch any winks until this floating Nanni-bot appeared above my head. It hovered over me and sprinkled this mysterious sand of all over my face; as soon as it hit me; I felt my eyelids dropping until finally I was asleep.


 I slept until I had, to pardon the expression 'recharged my batteries to full charge' and then I resumed my long search. I continued to search everywhere I could, looking high and looking low and just as I was about to give up; I heard this voice suddenly say, “Hey friend, you lookin' a job?” I looked all over the place until I noticed this giant plush bear in the corner which the voice seemed to come from. I think I knew setup of this: there was a microphone inside in the bear with a camera being in the bear's eye or something like that. I cautiously approached the bear until I was close enough to rub my cheeks of my face on it and I said,”Is anyone there?”


 

The bear was silent for a bit until finally it said, “Yeah, I'm here; wouldja like a job?” “A job!? Do you work for one of the guilds?” I asked in a very excited manner. “Yeah I represent the triple P Guild, one of many guilds, headquartered in door 7 also known as Sweet Street, where candy lines the roads and everything sweet flows in like water. It is the center of commerce here in Nursery Doors, after all, sweets are what makes this world  go round.” I assumed that sweets are the monetary units of measure here in this world; much like dollars in the real world.  Anyway the informant gave me my first task; to go to the outskirts of the nursery area and head towards Mount Chocorock; there one of their guys; specifically someone named Burt would provide further information about the job. Unlike the regular nursery areas; the outskirts are said to be filled with all kinds of things including enemies known as bogeymen.


 

   According to the lore of this world; bogeymen began as innocent robots until their programming corrupted and caused them to hack apart their fellow robots and take their parts; turning some of them into a mish-mash of different robots. Their goals are not clearly defined but apparently they like to terrorize the babies by grabbing them and scaring them until the babies are forced to cry which immediately summons a holdy unit to carry the baby or babies to safety while the bogeyman laughs at the baby's fear. Afterwards the babies are confined to the playpen until they have recovered from the fear induced by the bogeymen. Therefore most of the babies usually carry something  to protect themselves from them, like a sword but with an aesthetic more befitting of a baby or young child. I decided to take the job and  since the job required me to cross through areas with enemies; the informant gave some basic protection and a weapon along with some other necessities. With all of these supplies,  I headed straight for the outskirts. I reached the threshold of the border between the safe nursery area and the outskirts; the contrast couldn't be greater between the two. At the border; there were plenty of warnings that area you would enter would be wrought with danger and that anyone that only wanted to just live as a baby should not go forward. I had already decided to move forward and so off I went into the unknown.


 

The outskirts resembled somewhat like an old forest; completely overtaken by the overgrown vegetation but with a childish aesthetic; kind of like the lollipop forest but much more antiquated and far too dilapidated for consumption. I imagined that this was once an additional play area where the babies could come and gather candy that once was here but with the bogeyman threat and the forward movement of time; this area's purpose has all been forgotten.  I began my trek through this area, which was very tough to get through with all of the shrubbery around  but nonetheless I kept moving forward; carefully following the map that informant gave me before I entered this place. Suddenly as I was about to reach the exit of this forest; I saw something moving in the background; something not of this world. Rather than confront this monstrosity; I hid myself in a knothole of a candy tree and waited for it to pass.


 

 It got dangerously close to my location and thus allowed me to get a good look at it. It had both the hands and head of a Changie but completely twisted up with this creepy clown-like smile plastered on its face. It's body appeared to float much like a Holdy. It seemed to be insane with it having these laughing fits every now and again. I worried that it would find me but eventually it went on its merry way and I slipped out of the outskirts straight to my next destination, Mount Chocorock.

Sorry for the long wait; my computer is still acting up and I'm bit unsure how I want to proceed with this story.

My computer's not acting like it should, so expect delays for the next chapter of Nursery Doors.

Also I may do a journal entry about Nursery Doors, to explain the mythology and whatnot if you guys want that is.

Looked at both groups but honestly I don't think I am a group-oriented person if ya catch my drift. I think I was in the hourglass of youth group at one point but if remember correctly my inbox was filled with all kinds of works such as art, stories and other stuff, some good and some not so good. 

Also at that point, I was a moocher pretty much in the group; contributing next to nothing.
