All over the world, children were being taken from their homes. No one had a clue to what was going on. The Guardians had been called to figure out was going on. Jack was, surprisingly, the first one to get to North's. He cared so much for the children of the world. When everybody got there they started immediately.

"Any leads?" Bunny asked.

"No," Tooth said. "Just that the front doors are always left open and that it always happens in the middle of the night."

"The most amount of children taken is close to Burgess," Jack said, thinking. "Maybe we should be looking there?"

Then it was settled as they went to Burgess to watch out for anything strange. They split up into pairs, except for Sandy, who was solo. What they didn't notice was something watching them, smirking.

It has been a couple of hours and Jack was bored. He looked over and saw Bunny waiting patiently for something to happen. That was until Jack heard a song.

'Come little children
I'll take thee away
Into a land of enchantment
Come little children
The time's come to play
Here in my garden of shadows'

Jack quickly covered his ears. He knew it was affecting him though.

"Bunny!" Jack called to his friend. "Please tell me you hear that."

Bunny looked at Jack as if he had gone off his rocker. That was till he heard the song. Since he had sensitive hearing he could hear it. He recognized it. That song had lead the children of his nest to their doom. He rushed over to Jack and gripped his waist, making sure he couldn't move.

'Follow, sweet children
I'll show thee the way
Through all the pain and the sorrows
Weep not poor children
For life is this way
Murdering beauty and passions'

Jack began to squirm in Bunny's grip. He was scared, he didn't know what was going on. He still had his ears covered, but the song went through his hands. He wanted to follow the song. It was soft, like a mother singing to her child.

"Let me go!" Jack demanded. "I have to follow it!"

"No you don't," Bunny said, grip tightening. "You aren't going anyway."

'Hush now, dear children
It must be this way
To weary of life and deceptions
Rest now, my children
For soon we'll away
Into the calm and the quiet'

Jack cried out as he tried to break from the grip. He began kicking at Bunny, but to no avail. Bunny decided to pick Jack up, still holding his waist and go find the others. Jack was lashing out and he needed help to be controlled.

"I have to find who's singing that," Jack said, very desperate to be let go. "Let me go!"

Bunny ignored this and continued to walk with Jack.

'Come little children
I'll take thee away
Into a land of enchantment
Come little children
The time's come to play
Here in my garden of shadows'

The song was finally finished and Jack went limp. Bunny was surprised by that, but he fixed Jack so he was being actually carried and not dragged against his will. It took a while, but he found the others. They all fell asleep, except for Tooth who kept guard. She looked up when she heard a branch break, but gasped when she saw Jack.

"Did he fall asleep too?" She asked.

"No," Bunny said. "Jack almost got taken himself."

Her eyes went wide. "What do you mean?"

"Let's talk about this when they wake up and we're back at the Pole. I don't trust that this thing won't try to take him again."

With that they woke up North and Sandy, then they headed back to the Pole. When they got there Bunny placed Jack on one of the couches. Then, he explained everything to the others, who were shocked.

When Jack he heard Bunny talking.

"We have to protect him." Bunny said to the rest of the Guardians. "He can't do it himself."

Jack sat up fast, but he groaned and clutched his stomach in pain. The guardians looked over at Jack and rushed over. He was bombarded with questions and worrying fits. Tooth was the first to notice he was holding his stomach in pain.

"Jack," Tooth said after she made the other's be quiet. "Can you please take off your hoodie?"

Jack shook his head quickly. "Why?" He asked.

"Because," Bunny said. "I may have broken a rib or two keeping you from your death. That's why."

"What?!" Jack was confused.

"Just take off hoodie," North said butting in.

Jack just kept shaking his head. Sandy rolled his eyes at his comrades. He threw some dream-sand at Jack, who fell back down on the couch, sleeping.

"Thank you," Tooth said politely as she leaned down to Jack and took off his hoodie.

The Guardians all gasped at the sight of their youngest. He had scars, a lot of them scattered everywhere. No wonder he didn't want to take the hoodie off. Jack's stomach was bruised, but not badly. Bunny hadn't hurt anywhere above the abdomen, meaning Jack's ribs were at least intact.

North told a few yetis to set up a room for Jack, which when it was ready, they brought him too. Once Jack was laid on the bed the Guardians began discussing what was going to happen.

It was night once again and Jack woke up. His hoodie was off, but there was a light blue t-shirt in it's place. Jack got up quickly and started freaking out. He knew they saw the scars. Those scars he made. Those scars others have made. Those scars that will be with him forever.

Jack then heard the singing again. It was sickly sweet, entrancing him.

'Come little children
I'll take thee away
Into a land of enchantment
Come little children
The time's come to play
Here in my garden of shadows

Follow, sweet children
I'll show thee the way
Through all the pain and the sorrows
Weep not poor children
For life is this way
Murdering beauty and passions

Hush now, dear children
It must be this way
To weary of life and deceptions
Rest now, my children
For soon we'll away
Into the calm and the quiet

Come little children
I'll take thee away
Into a land of enchantment
Come little children
The time's come to play
Here in my garden of shadows'

Jack was gone by the time the song was done.
