BEN sighed and sat at his computer. It had been about a day since Jeff snuck out, and he was feeling pretty lonely. Jack had been in BEN's room numerous times to check on him and keep him company. BEN liked Jack. Even though he was mute, Jack was a very comforting person. BEN switched his computer on and browsed through YouTube. As tempting as it was, BEN was forbidden to look up any videos involving Slender, Masky, The Collective or anything to that nature. He knew that if he learned secrets, such as who Masky really was, he'd be killed.
"....." Giving into curiosity, BEN slowly typed out the words 'Marble Ho-'.
"BEN?" Masky knocked at the door. BEN quickly shut down the computer as Masky walked in. "What are you doing?"
"Nothing." BEN sat back. "What's up?" Masky looked around.
"Have you seen Jeff around?" BEN tensed up.
"No." He answered quickly.
"....BEN? What are you hiding?"
"Nothing. Why would I be hiding something?" BEN turned to face Masky.
"I know when you're lying, you brat!" Masky walked in and grabbed the front of BEN's shirt. "Where. Is. Jeff??"
Jeff slipped his hood on and ran into a dark building. He had a natural ability to find other humans, so sensing Jane was no issue for him. But, he sensed something else as well. Something very....dark. "Where are you...." Jeff looked back and forth. He froze, feeling someone's eyes on him. He slowly turned his head. If he wasn't already colorless, all of the color would have disappeared from his face. Behind him was a shadowed figure with two white dots for eyes. But he could sense something very...human about him.
"Who are you?" The voice was that of a man. It was very shaky.
"Firebrand!" A voice echoed. "Where are you?!" The boy's eyes widened. He ran at Jeff and pinned him to the wall, covering him in shadows.
"Shh! Stay quiet if you want to live....." He let go of Jeff, who was stuck to the wall.
"There you are!" Another shadowy figure came around the corner.
"Mr. Scars.....What's wrong?"
"You are supposed to be with Boss Observer and finding the human!"
"Right. Sorry. I'll go there now." Mr. Scars nodded, and walked away. Once he was out of sight, Firebrand turned and released Jeff. Jeff hit the floor and immediately stood.
"You! You work for this 'Observer' guy!" Jeff growled. "Where is she?!"
"Don't play dumb with me!"
"....Oh! That human girl! Why? Who are you? Wait....you're the human!" Firebrand growled.
"That's right! I'm gonna get Jane out of here!"
"After Master Slenderman put her in here?"
"....I don't care who put her here. She's suffering. I can feel it. I can also feel that....you are human."
"!!!" Firebrand grabbed Jeff. "Don't you talk about that!" He hissed. Soon, he calmed down. "I don't like it, either.....She is in pain."
"So....will you help me break her out?"
