    Everyone knows that music can be very powerful. Well in this case, it is very much true. In the most secure place of all, a realm that is meant to only contain one super powerful item, is a mystic music box . Whoever opens it is immediately affected by the powerful mist it dispenses as the music plays. The mist makes anyone who it affects to have dark powers and influences the mind to make terrible decisions all in the name of evil. But you can't just go in and cure them. No, if you were to try, you'd end up dead before you can say "chocolate chip". Not only does the music box make its victim absolutely evil, but also allows the person to only bleed in the form of tears . Therefore, you have to cause something pretty serious in order for them to bleed tears. But that is only to defeat them by blood loss. But to really get them rid of the evil mist that the music box affected them with, you have to use a magical pen that summons rainbow tie-dye shirts. It may not seem competent at first, but to defeat evil, you have use the ultimate force of happiness and purity. And we all know that rainbow tie-dye shirts are just that. Therefore, you need to use the magical pen to defeat the evil. Stars Meme Bifrost (as in the Rainbow Bridge) Unicorns
