Inside the Discord Lodge, where it's not your usual hotel...

Windows: eating a little bag of Tera-bites

Blue Heart: comes and sits beside Windows Hey there, Win.

Win: Hey, Blue.

Blue: sees the bag of Tera-bites Ooh, lemme have one! reaches in the bag to get one and takes a bite out of it only for her tongue to get electrocuted Agh! It zapped my tongue!

Win: Sorry to say, Blue, but only software beings like me can taste the goodness. shows her the bag See?

Blue: Oh. How does it taste?

Win: Sort of cheesy, with a sour-creamy trace.

Blue: Alrighty.

Bella: comes up to the two Hey, guys!

Blue: Hi, Bella!

Win: Hey there.

Bella: Did you see the new baby Crystal gave birth to? It was soooooo adoorable! :D (Big Grin)

Blue: Crystal had a baby?

Bella: Mmm hmm! nods

Win: I bet it must've been really awesome watching the egg to hatch, right?

Bella: It was indeed!

*Then all the people in the Discord Lodge hear the sound of a cowbell

Blue: grabs Windows by the shoulders Red Ball's coming!

But the one who comes down the stairs is one of the moderators, Mousey

Blue: Hey! You're not Red Ball!

Mousey: Nope, I'm not.


Mousey: Whoa, calm down. You may wanna check his room...

Blue: gasps What happened?

Mousey: He...uhm...

Blue: LEMME SEE!!! Come on guys! runs to Red's room

Bella and Windows stand up from the couch and follow Blue Heart


Blue: knocks on Red's door Hellooo?

no answer

Blue: Hellooooooooo?

Bella: Maybe he's still asleep.

Blue: Helloooooooooooooooooooooooooo???

Win: I think he's dead...

Blue: gasps We better see! opens the door

Win: Oh, Blue, you actually believed me...

Blue: opens the door and sees Red Ball sleeping while floating aimlessly and gasps He IS dead!

Win: If he was dead he wouldn't be floating around like that.

Bella: Windows is right.

Blue: Oh, so he's NOT dead! sighs in relief, but then notices something about him Guys! Look at him! His color!

Win: ...What about it?

Blue: It's grayish.

Win: It must mean he's sick. I don't think we should disturb him...

Blue: Hey Reeeeeeed! The whole Discord Lodge needs yooooou!

Bella: Can't you see he's sleeping.

Blue: Helloooooooooooooooooooooooo! Wake uuuuuuuuuuup!

Red Ball: wakes up Aaaaaaaaaah! sees Blue Heart, Bella and Windows Oh...its only you...

Blue: jumping up and down on the ground Wake up, sleepyhead! You need to monitor the Discord Lodge!

Bella: I think the word for him is "sickyhead".

Blue: Whaddya waitin' for?! Get downstairs an' get monitorin'!

Red: Uuughh...

Blue: Come on, get all the fog outta your head!

Win: Keep it down...

Bella: Also I don't think he should be getting out first.

Red: It's okay... cough cough...I'll be fine...

Blue: You sound weird.

Red: It's my throat...cough...I have some sort of cough...

Bella: Oh dang.

Win: Must be awful.

Blue: holding onto Red Ball's arm pulling him along Come...on!

Red: (being pulled by Blue Heart) It'll be alright, I'll manage! cough cough cough

Bella and Windows follow Blue Heart out of Red Ball's room

(outside in the lobby)

everyone is talking as well as waiting for Red Ball to come

Twirly S'mores: (to Bubbles Twist) What's taking the owner so long for him to get out?

Then Blue Heart comes pulling Red Ball along, with Bella and Windows following

Churraffle: Where'd you been? We've been waiting for you!

Blue: Oh, just had to get Red here points at Red Ball to wake up and come out of his room.

Candy: Anythin' wrong with him? His color's a little faded...

Blue: He's coming down with some sort of illness.

Win: Don't worry though, I'm sure he'll get better soon.

Red: Let go of me.

Blue: Oh, sorry. lets go Now you gotta monitor the lobby.

Red: I know. cough cough

Blue: Well cya, bye, good luck monitoring! leaves with Bella and Windows following her

Red: sniff sniff A-choo! rubs his (invisible) nose Oh dang...I might be having the flu...

Later that day...

everyone is nattering again wanting to know where Red Ball went

Bella: about to go downstairs, then sees the mob Blue Heart! You gotta come quick!

Blue: comes What is it, Bella?

Bella: There's another mob out there!

Blue: What? sees the crowd of objects Why are they all here?

Bella: How should I know?

Blue: Maybe Red went back to his room.

Bella: Well it's vital for him, so of course he has to sleep.

Blue: But then who will monitor the Discord Lodge?

Bella: Now, that IS a question...

Blue: We gotta wake him up again! runs to Red Ball's room

Bella: Wait! follows

Blue: knocks on the door Wake uuuuuUUup! opens the door

Bella: Blue Heart, I don't think...

Blue: is now shaking Red Ball Come on!

Red: Agh! Stop shaking me! cough cough

Blue: The whole Discord Lodge needs you! There's a crowd outside!

Red: sighs Look, tell them I don't feel well, alright? sniff cough

Blue: But then who will monitor this place?!

Bella: One of the moderators can do it--

Blue: Bella, they're just moderators!

Bella: They still own the place aside from Red...

Blue: Still! still shaking Red Ball

Red: being shaken AaaaAAAAaaAGGGggggghhhhHHHH!!! Let go!

Blue: Okay fine. lets go of Red

Red: Now leave me alone and let me rest, alright? I feel so horrible today. cough cough sniff A-choo!

Blue: But then who will look after this place?

Red: The moderators can do it.

Bella: I told you.

Blue: Why not me? Or Bella?

Red: For obvious reasons...

Bella: And anyway neither of us know anything about monitoring.

Blue: We just gotta watch the lobby! How hard can it be???

Bella: I think there's more to that than just watching the lobby...

Blue: Well it's gotta be easy!

Red: sigh It may look easy... cough...but it's not. Now please leave me alone.

Bella: Come on, Blue. takes Blue Heart by the hand and walks out of the room

Blue: Now with that out of the way...How's Windows doing? I'll check on him. You go tell the mob.

Bella: goes off to tell the crowd the news

Blue: knocks on Windows' door Hey, it's your best friend Blue Heart.

no answer

Blue: ...Hello? enters the room and sees Windows lying down on his bed Win? You okay?

Win: opens one eye ...Oh. Hey there, Blue. cough

Blue: sees that instead of the usual red-green-blue-yellow color that Windows usually has, he's white all over Windows? How're you feeling?

Win: sigh I don't know how it happened, but I'm feeling awful! Almost as if I have...the flu...

Blue: gasps You got Red's illness!

Win: Exactly...

Bella: comes in the room I told the crowd out there the news, and that only made them riot even more!

Blue: What didya tell them?

Bella: I told them the person who was gonna monitor temporarily was one of the moderators.

Blue: And what did that do?

Bella: It seemed to have shushed them. Glad it's stopped.

Blue: Okay...Bella, Windows caught Red Ball's illness!

Bella: Oh! But how did it happen?

Blue: That's what I'd like to know.

Bella: walks over to Windows How ya feelin'?

Win: Awful...

Bella: Oh dang. Must hurt.

Win: Yeah...

Blue: puts her hand on Windows' forehead, pulls it away immediately and blows on it Aggh! It's as hot as a volcano! Is this normal?!

Win: Yep, it's normal for software beings like me...

Blue: How do you...?!

Bella: It happens with computers.

Blue: Oh. I see.

Bella: Now I'ma go check on Red first.

Blue: Hey, let me come too!

Bella: I...uh...don't think he wants to be disturbed.

Blue: You're going to see him! Aren't YOU disturbing him?

Bella: I'm not going to persuade him to look after the Discord Lodge.

Blue: Just let me come? Please???/?/?

Bella: No.

Blue: puppy eyes

Bella: Look, you look after Windows, alright? Pretty sure he needs company.

Blue: Oh. Will do, Bel. (thinking) How did my puppy eyes not work?

Bella: leaves to go check on Red

Blue: Soo...Win, how ya feelin'? Again?

Win: I already said I felt awful. cough

Blue: Oh. (thinking) I wonder if there's any antivirus I can use on him. looks back at Windows Need anything? A hug? A kiss?

Win: Just a hug. I don't wanna become any more ill.

Blue: smiles Alright. hugs Windows

Win: Hehe. faint smile

Blue: lets go of Win Anything else?

Win: cough Nah. I'm good.

Blue: Alright.

Bella: comes back in the room

Blue: So, what... sees that her colors are now grayish ...happened? How did it go?

Bella: It wasn't pretty...

Blue: How were you infected?

Bella: I don't happened very quickly... sniff A-choo!

Blue: Here, have a tissue. hands Bella a tissue

Bella: Thanks. blows her (invisible) nose

Blue: So what? Am I the next to get infected?

Win: Hope not.

Blue: (thinking) Maybe Billy isn't infected. I wish he isn't. starts heading for the door

Win: Where ya goin'?

Blue: Just off to see Billy.

Win: Alright.

Blue: leaves

(At the door to Billy's room)

Blue: knocks on the door, goes in the room and sees Billy sitting on the side of his bed reading a novel Phew! You're not infected!

Billy: looks up from his novel What?

Blue: I would know because your colors aren't faded.

Billy: What are you talking about?

Blue: Weell, its 'cause the other 3 have got the flu, and you haven't. I haven't too, thank goodness.

Billy: Oh...alright.

Blue: huddles up close to Billy We must stay safe. Or we will be infected too.

Billy: Stop overreacting. We'll stay still as long as we don't come in contact with any germs.

Blue: Alright. lets go of Billy

Billy: So, I heard that the moderators were monitoring the Discord Lodge today.

Blue: Yeah, it's cause Red Ball's sick. And Windows and Bella.

Billy: Wait, they are?

Blue: Yeah.

Billy: Now I see why we must stay safe. But I still don't think that's something worth overreacting about...

Blue: You don't wanna get all these germs on ya, don't cha?

Billy: No...

Blue: So you gotta stay safe. And me.

Billy: I know what to do, Blue. You don't have to tell me.

Blue: Oh, alright. Oh, be right back, Billy, I'ma go check on the moderators to see how they're doing. goes out of the room and into the lobby How ya mods doing?

Mousey: chasing down a runaway toy car We're fine, Blue Heart! Just need a little... throws himself on the ground trying to catch the car, but to no avail...getting used to!

Blue: Alright...Hey, Superstar, how's it goin' for ya?

Superstar: sees Blue Heart and gives her a thumbs up, when really things are going badly for him

Blue: Alrighty... gives Superstar a thumbs up too ...with that outta the way, how's Morphi doing?

Morpheus: Oh, me? Well... ducks because two legless objects are chasing each other...okay for the most part...

Blue: Okay then...hope your monitoring goes well! goes back upstairs

(Inside Blue Heart's room)

Blue: Things are going really weirdly today...well, I know things always go weirdly in the Discord Lodge, but this one is the weirdest yet....

Billy: comes inside Blue Heart's room Hi, Blue Heart.

Blue: Oh, hey, Billy. Whatcha doin' here?

Billy: Oh, just decided I should come here because you visited me a while ago.

Blue: M'kay then.

Billy: I can tell that the moderators aren't having an easy time monitoring and looking after the lodge.

Blue: Well they're just starting.

Billy: Yeah, I knew that.

both stare at each other in silence

Blue: Whatcha staring at?

Billy: I dunno. What are you staring at?

Blue: Dunno either.


Blue: streeetch Ahh, another awesome day. hops out of bed and comes out of her room I wonder if Red is better?

Billy: Huh? opens one eye Oh, good morning, Blue. cough sniff

Blue: Oh crap, you're infected as well...

Billy: Yeah...

Blue: Ugh, now what?

Billy: I guess you'll have to wait until I've recovered.

Blue: Alright. leaves the room

(Outside in the lobby)

Blue: sitting on one of the armchairs If Red can't watch the lodge...then who will? Who knows what'll happen... falls sideways on the armchair

Dottie Dough: sees Blue Heart lying down muttering to herself ...Are you alright?

Blue: Oh! Oh, yes I am. Just...worried.

Dottie: Worried? Why are you worried?

Blue: It's just...who will monitor this place while Red is resting?

Dottie: Resting?

Blue: Yeah...he got the flu.

Dottie: But aren't the mods already looking after the place?

Blue: Huh? then remembers Oh yeeeah! Sorry, forgot.

Dottie: rolls eyes and walks past

Blue: I must find a way to cure my friends somehow...but how?

Candy: flies to Blue Heart Hey there. Whatcha doin'?

Blue: Nothing.

Candy: Oh really? You were saying something about how you needed to find a way to cure your friends.

Blue: Wait, you heard me?

Candy: You said it out loud, Blue.

Blue: Oh.

Candy: What were they affected with? Was it a zombie infection? Because curing them of that is easy. All you need is a Splash Potion of Weakness and a Golden Apple. Just make sure the potion doesn't get you too.

Blue: No, of course they weren't infected by zombies. Just the flu.

Candy: Oh, the flu...that disease is awful, Blue. I've had it before.

Blue: So how do we cure it?

Candy: Seriously? You cure it with meds of course!!!

Blue: How do I know what kind of meds to get?

Candy: Wait there. I'll be right back. goes out of the Discord Lodge

Later that day...

Candy: comes in Blue Heart's room Here, gotcha somethin'.

Blue: looks up from her Scribblenauts comic But I'm not sick.

Candy: No, this isn't for you. It's to cure your sick friends.

Blue: Oh. takes the bottle from Candy's hand

Candy: It's antidote.

Blue: Oh, cool! Does it have any instructions?

Candy: reads the box It says you have to mix the antidote in water before taking. Not doing so may give you some pretty strange results...

Blue: Okay, where's the water? I needa mix this right now!

Candy: I'll be right back! goes out of the room

A few seconds later...

Candy: comes back holding a glass of water Here's the water.

Blue: Great! I gotta mix this up! gets the bottle of antidote

Candy: Don't add too much. Five to ten drops is enough.

Blue: Okay... adds ten drops Now what?

Candy: Mix it up.

Blue: O-kay. mixes it with her finger Now what?

Candy: Give it to whoever's sick.

Blue: Cool! Gotta give this to my friends! leaves the room

Candy: How will she give a single glass of water to a bunch of pals?

2 minutes later...

Blue: walking in her room Finally. I'm done.

Candy: How did you give it to all your friends?

Blue: They just shared the glass. No biggie.

Candy: Okay.

Blue: So what does the box say?

Candy: It says the sick person should be better in a day or two.

Blue: A day?

Candy: Yep.

Blue: Or two?

Candy: Yep.

Blue: Oh.

Candy: Don't worry, it's just a day.

Blue: Now if only I could fast-forward the time...

Candy: That's impossible.

Blue: I know. I'ma just have to wait. sits on her chair bored face slump Uggh, waiting is soo boring! I can't sit here all day!

Candy: Can't hang around here long either. I've got a volleyball game to attend. C'ya. flies off

Blue: Bye.
