The shade of the trees fell heavily upon the water, and seemed to bury itself there in, impregnating the depths of the element of darkness. The cold and icy night seemed to silently creep upon Henry... He felt a hand on his shoulder, horrified, he saw Callie right in front of him. The ground was so slippery that he almost fell, but he caught his grip and just backed away, the trees heaving around him. He then felt a burning sensation inside of him and he was curious as to what was happening. He saw a high, black shadow then occur, he knew exactly what has just happened. Callie has turned completely evil, inside and out, it was rough to experience everything that's currently happening.

On all sides - save to the west, where the sun was about sinking - arose the verdant walls of the forest. A protagonist - Henry, male, twenty years old, tall and thin, blonde with short and cropped close to the head hair, with blue eyes, who wore basic wool pants and a linen shirt, who also came from a poor family - was investigating a murder.

The murderer - Callie, female, long red hair, and hazel eyes - killed Tyler, a TV producer who was 34 years old with blue colored eyes and blonde hair. The murderer knows the protagonists because they're siblings. Although, it might not be understood by many, the villain has a reason or motive to commit this atrocity, she thought that Tyler cut off her favorite character from her favorite TV show. This horrible incident occurred during a full moon. The murderer used this weapon, a syringe, to kill her victim. The victim uttered these words when he was dying, "I'm so sorry, the director told me to make the cut." The murder happened in the woods behind the house. The murderer left the body there to be found, but the murderer left one significant clue at the scene of the crime, something that would eventually lead to her identification, a cerulean ribbon. The setting left at the murder scene made it seem as if the suspect was shameless about committing the murder. Suddenly, Henry found the cerulean ribbon caught onto the victim's glasses. He knew exactly who it belonged to, his sister, Callie. Callie died two years ago in a car accident, but Henry could always feel her spirit among him. Now it's Henry's job to find Callie and capture her and suck her into the Pandora box so she could stay out of trouble forever. It was really unusual to find out that Callie's the murderer knowing the fact that she's was so kind when she was alive.

The shade of the trees fell heavily upon the water, and seemed to bury itself there in, impregnating the depths of the element of darkness. The cold and icy night seemed to silently creep upon Henry... He felt a hand on his shoulder, horrified, he saw Callie right in front of him. The ground was so slippery that he almost fell, but he caught his grip and just backed away, the trees heaving around him. He then felt a burning sensation inside of him and he was curious as to what was happening. He saw a high, black shadow then occur, he knew exactly what has just happened. Callie has turned completely evil, inside and out, it was rough to experience everything that's currently happening.

An air of stern, deep, and irredeemable gloom hung over and pervaded all... The wild, dreary night grew drearier, and wilder. Henry knew just exactly what he had to do now, he had to get out the Pandora box and capture Callie to keep the faithful world, well, faithful. The rotting smell surrounding him, he condemned everything, he wanted all to end... He condemned his sister. The quaint feeling inside of Henry was rising, he needed to stop her quickly or else she'll escape. Callie didn't happen to be grief-stricken at all, she felt proud, proud to have done what she has done. The Callie Henry knew was gone, forever.

Callie flew, she flew really fast, like an exotic bird. Henry tried to catch up, with the Pandora box in his hand - he ran as fast as he could, he caught up to her in a dark section of the forest. She had complete nowhere else to go, she was surrounded by trees, she couldn't find her way out, she was trapped. Henry quickly opened the Pandora box - a bright light appeared and showed throughout the whole forest. For the next two minutes, everything was still - everything. Then, Henry opened his eyes, the darkness was gone, that must have meant that she was gone, forever.

The next day, Henry went to the police department, letting everybody know that everyone is safe and that for the rest of their days, they don't have to worry about anything like this again. Everyone was relieved, they all cheered, they all laughed, then they continued with their daily lives. Henry was also relieved, he knew that nobody was going to get hurt by Callie ever again, he'll place the Pandora box somewhere no one would ever suspect that it would be there, nobody will ever know what had happened, and nobody will ever worry about this situation coming back ever again.
