Bolt sighed and wiped the sweat off his brow, looking up at what little sunlight filtered through the thick layer of leaves above. The sun was starting to set, not much time before dark.
“Bolt, are we there yet?” Domino whined as he trudged along after him.
“No, and if you ask me that one more time I swear I’m shoving you off the nearest cliff,” Bolt snapped.
The two had been making their way through the seemingly-endless jungle for three hours now, searching for anything that might help in their rescue. In the least they needed a decent place to set up camp.

AloneNothing. There was nothing. Everywhere she turned, no matter where her eyes fell, there was nothing. No things, no people, just emptiness. She was completely alone.
“H-Hello?” She called hesitantly, her voice quavering.
No answer, not even an echo. A deafening silence filled the air, seeming to swallow her whole.

Silence. The girl stood perfectly still, listening for any possible sound but hearing none. As time passed what little hope she had dwindled away and her eyes filled with tears. This was what she feared, her worst nightmare was coming to light. When she spoke her voice was soft and gentle, filled with despair.

The stars, the stars, have they been lost?
Nothing but a simple ghost, searching for stars he could never see. He moaned with sorrow, finding that no matter how hard he searched the stars would not appear to him.
The stars, the stars, why have they abandoned me?
Was this life beyond the grave? A melancholy existence without his beautiful stars, the things he loved most? The phantom sighed and silently fell to his knees, his heart filled with despair.
My stars, my stars, I miss my stars
