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.
