The house wasn't much on the inside. It was just a room with two red rugs and two candle holders on each side of the only door in the room. Italy walked through the door into another room. There was a red stain, which he assumed to be blood, and a note on the wall. Walking around the red stain, he walked up to the note and read it.
COME TO MY ROOM
"How strange," he said as he walked out. The room now led to two different rooms and the door he went in before was gone. He looked beside him at Germouser, who was looking up at him with wide eyes.
"I decided I'd follow you, in case you need help. Incidentally, where the hölle did you come out from?"
"There was a door here a second ago, but it's not here now."
"Weird," Germouser said. He sat down and Italy sighed and went to the left room first. There was a dusty old bookshelf, a door, and a work bench with a pair of scissors chained to it. He walked over to the door and tried to open it, but it was locked.
"I need to find the key," he mumbled as he left the room and went to the door on the right side. There was a door and a narrow hallway leading north. He went up the narrow hallway and saw an old clock and another door. He went through the door and found himself in a small office. He saw a book on the desk and walked over to it. He noticed something was written down.
I was sick, so no one played with me. My "father" and my "mother" didn't love me.
"Wow, that's sad," Italy said, his eyes saddening a bit. He looked around and walked to the cabinet and tried to open it, but it wouldn't open. There was writing on it.
Opens when the house returns to normal.
"Nothing in this house makes sense!" Italy growled in frustration. He looked around and saw presents stacked up. He walked over and picked up a teddy bear. He put it in his bag and walked toward the door. He was about to open the door when a cookie tin fell off the pile, making him jump. He looked at the pile before he left the room, heading down the narrow hallway and into the other room. In there, he saw a lone teddy bear in a basket and a note on the wall. He walked over to the note on the wall, which read, "BEARS IN THE BASKET."
"So I put the teddy bear in the basket with the other one?"
He walked over and tried to put it in the basket, but it wouldn't fit. The limbs were getting in the way.
"Maybe I need to cut off the limbs," Italy sighed as he walked back to the room with the scissors. He cut of the bears limbs and noticed there was now blood on the scissors. He panicked, thinking he cut himself, but when he inspected his hands, there wasn't any cuts on him. He noticed there was blood on the bear, where the limbs used to be.
"No... How is it bleeding?" He wondered as he touch the sticky liquid. He shook his head and walked to the door. Suddenly, a force swept by his face, making him jump back. The force hit the wall, leaving a bloody pawprint. Not just any pawprint, a bear's pawprint. Italy just stared at it in horror. He closed his eyes and ran out the door, heading for the room with the basket in it. As he ran past the candle holders, the candles blew out, but he ignored them.
He walked into the room and set the torso in the basket with the other bear. He heard the sound of a door unlocking from somewhere. He walked toward the door and was about to walk out when he heard something move behind him. He turned around and saw that the basket had moved a foot toward him.
He was beginning to feel frightened, but he walked out and headed back toward the room with the scissors. He walked passed the table and the vase fell off and broke. He stared at it before continuing to walk.
He was walking past Germouser when a huge teddy bear broke through the door. Italy screamed and ran back toward the room with the basket. He slammed the door and leaned against it, waiting for the giant teddy bear to break through the door, but nothing happened. He peeked out the door and saw it was no longer there. He walked out slowly and continued his way to the other room. He walked to the door and heard something fall behind him. When he turned around, he saw the bear limbs laying on the floor. He walked over and picked them up, putting them in his bag.
He walked to the door and tested it. Once he saw it was unlocked, he walked through it to the next room, with a new challenge waiting for him.
