Candles, feeling brave after her new soccer endeavors, is out on an adventure, ready to explore the strange and bizarre worlds outside of the Haunt. Wandering around like this is new to her, but it suits her well- she's always looking for new and exciting things in life.
Sure enough, this world she's come across seems to be bizarre indeed...
CANDLES: Huh...this place is like something right out of Goss' books!
CANDLES: I wonder if she's ever written about something like this...
Candles pads around the lush jungle, marveling at all of the plants and scenery. There was nothing even remotely like this back at the Haunt, and the only greenery she'd ever seen back home was at the local park.
CANDLES: Amazing! I wish I had a camera-
Candles nearly trips over something, completely oblivious to where she's actually going. She can barely see whatever it is in the grass, and her eyes widen as she realizes just what she's discovered- an egg!
CANDLES: Huh...I wonder what kind of pet laid this?
CANDLES: I could've stepped on you, you know!
CANDLES: You need to be more careful, or you're going to get cracked.
She pokes at the egg, jumping after she feels it tremble against her paw.
CANDLES: Wow, look at you...you're all alone out here, without anybody to take care of you...
CANDLES: Hmm...I mean, it's not like I have anything better to do.
CANDLES: How hard could taking care of an egg be?
She takes her new finding carefully in her mouth, only to almost trip again over another egg.
CANDLES: Wow, two of you!
CANDLES: Guess I'm taking care of a bunch of twins!
Candles makes her way to a large nest, seemingly abandoned.
CANDLES: Well, don't mind if I do...
She sets the eggs down and tries to make them as cozy as possible, laying herself down as soon as she knows they're safe. Her nap comes easy, dreamless and peaceful.
She wakes up as the sun sets, stretching out and admiring her new clutch.
CANDLES: Well...I can't stay here forever, I have people back in the city that could need my help too.
CANDLES: Plus, I have another soccer game to try and win!
CANDLES: But it seems pretty quiet and peaceful here, if I come back and check in every day, it should be fine...
CANDLES: I guess when they hatch, I can try to see if they'll come back to the Haunt with me...
CANDLES: Maybe some other petz know more about these eggs!
