*on a nearby beach, the CB group camps out for the night. All but Curious Bee is awake, and they sit on the beach*
Alice: So tell me something, Madeline.
Quiet Snake: Tell me what?
Alice: I’ve been talking around about the Miranda group’s past and stuff… and do you ever get the feeling you’re being watched at all?
Quiet Snake: Not since she-who-must-not-be-named ended up in the portal.
Alice: I have.
Nice Sword: What do you mean, Alice?
Alice: I dunno. Ever since I’ve met you guys and you told your stories, I’ve been really uncomfortable. Do you know that feeling when you feel like you’ve made a new enemy?
Blue Skull: Um… multiple times?
Alice: It’s that feeling. I feel like ever since I’ve known you guys…
Blue Skull: Don’t be so serious, Alice. REd’s gone. Poof. Dispersed. You have nothing to be afraid of.
Alice: Yeah, but are you sure everyone has stopped supporting Kri-er-she-who-must-not-be-named?
Bendy Tornado: Positive. They said so themselves.
Alice: Look, this world is full of liars and decievers. You can’t trust anyone. I learned that you can’t even trust a cop for goodness sake! Long story. Look, all I’m saying is that you shouldn’t believe everything you hear.
*the others nod and get up*
*meanwhile, Curious Bee has a dream, until she was interuppted by a flash of darkness*
Curious Bee: Um… what’s going on?
*The darkness fades away to reveal a plain, square, grey-colored room. A boy stands in a corner of the room. He has black shaggy hair, a striped grey and white shirt, and black pants. When he turns around, he stares at CB.*
Marcus: Miranda. We need to talk.
Curious Bee: M-M-Marcus?!?!
Marcus: Why are you… oh. *looks at his former REd clothing* Sorry. I have to wear this outfit whenever I use my powers.
Curious Bee: Your powers?
Marcus: Yeah, I should’ve told you. The powers that Krimson cursed me with is the ability to control air. I can go into people’s minds and dreams as well.
Curious Bee: So… you made that vision Sasha had…
Marcus: Krimson made me do it. Otherwise, she would’ve thrown me and Cameron in the portal. Of course I didn’t know back then…
Curious Bee: Didn’t know what?
Marcus: I talked to Adam the other day.
Curious Bee: Adam?
Marcus: Formerly known as Alamar. He built the portal and he said that the Portal to Nowhere is nothing but a huge scam.
Curious Bee: What do you mean?
Marcus: You know how the motto was “One way in, no way out?” Well, there is a way out. If the portal remains open, then whoever was in it can easily come out.
Curious Bee: You mean if anyone opens the portal…
Marcus: Krimson would return.
*Curious Bee stares blankly at Marcus*
Curious Bee: *nervous* But we don’t have to worry about that… right? Everyone said that they hated Krimson.
Marcus: But did they mean it? I’m not so sure, anymore. *pause* I need to go. Be careful, Miranda.
*Marcus disappears and a wave of darkness clouds CB’s dream once more*
*Curious Bee wakes up in her tent, gasping. She looks around for a second, then joins the others by the ocean.*
