Storyboard Text

  • Myop was a young girl who liked to wander around her parent's farm and nearby forest. She carried a stick around and picked up flowers, ferns, nuts, and leaves.
  • However, this day was different. Usually, her mother would bring her to places, but today she was going alone on her own path. She wanted to explore things for herself.
  • At first, Myop's exploration was running smoothly, as she found many different types of flowers. The deeper she walked into the woods, however, the darker things seemed to get.
  • Myop then found herself wanting to go back. This part of the woods was cloaked in silence. The trees seemed to curve in odd shapes.
  • Attempting to run back, something slightly startled her. She had walked into a skull, and encountered an entire skeleton. Also, she spotted pieces of rope in a tree in on the ground, where a wild rose grew.
  • Piecing the parts together, Myop figures out that a man of her race had died here, and was presumably hung. Sorrowful, she places down her flowers, including the wild rose, and now has a memory that has changed young Myop forever.
