(at the Crystal Temple*
(Amethyst and Pearl are sitting outside the temple entrance when Rose warps in with Freddy*
Pearl: Rose, you're back, and you brought a human with you.
Rose Quartz: That's right, (sets Freddy down* his name is Freddy. (walks off of the warp pad as Garnet warps in and spots Freddy*
Garnet: A human!
(Rose looks back, and Freddy hides behind Rose in a fright*
Rose Quartz: It's ok! It's ok! I brought him here.
Garnet: What happened?
Rose Quartz: Well, I was in this town for a mission when I spotted him crying in a backyard. I went over to check on him, and he looked very hurt, so I agreed to let him stay with us. (looks back and sees Freddy behind her* It's ok. You can come out.
(Freddy nervously walks out from behind Rose*
Freddy: (nervously* Um, hello.
(Amethyst walks up to Freddy*
Amethyst: You look nice. I like your clothes.
Amethyst: I like him already. (turns into a cat and rubs against Freddy, who chuckles lightly*
Freddy: You guys are nice. (to Amethyst* Say how are you doing that?
Freddy: Can you turn into anything else?
Amethyst: Anything. (turns back into herself* Whatcha got in mind?
(Freddy pulls folded pieces of paper out of his pants pocket*
Freddy: I have these drawings I kept hidden from Mr. Underwood.
Amethyst: Not one for drawing, is he?
Freddy: I would often draw pictures, and he would often catch me and burn them. I managed to save these. (hands the papers to Amethyst, who unfolds them, then smirks*
(a few minutes later*
(Amethyst is now in the form of a werewolf with 8-inch claws on each hand, and she lets out a loud howl as Freddy giggles*
Freddy: You're funny.
(Amethyst turns into a demonic looking creature with tusks on the chin and 8-inch claws on each hand*
Amethyst: RAAAAAAHR!!!!!!!!!!!!! (turns back into herself* You sure have a thing for claws, don't you?
Freddy: I like monsters. I remember this one time, I was at a museum, and they had these things with claws that you'd wear on your hand.
Amethyst: I see.
(Freddy takes out another piece of paper and begins drawing*
Freddy: They looked like this. (flips the paper over, revealing a picture of a metal tool with a handle on the inside, and 3 long blades protruding from it*
Amethyst: That just might be the coolest thing I've ever seen.
Freddy: You really think so?
(Freddy is sitting on a rock, looking out toward the sea when Garnet walks in*
Garnet: I wanted to apologize for earlier.
Garnet: For frightening you.
Freddy: It's alright. I've just then thinking about things.
Garnet: Is that so?
Freddy: Before your friend Rose came along, no one cared about me. I was teased, mistreated, abused, and picked on my whole life.
Garnet: Tell me more.
Freddy: Apparently, I was born of rape and put in various orphanages. The other orphans would tease me about how I was born.
(flashback to a couple years earlier*
Freddy: (narrating* They called me the....
Kids (flashback*: Son of a hundred maniacs! Son of a hundred maniacs! Son of a hundred maniacs! Son of a hundred maniacs! Son of a hundred maniacs! Son of a hundred maniacs! Son of a hundred maniacs! Son of a hundred maniacs!
Freddy: It was horrible.
(Garnet ruffles Freddy's hair*
Garnet: It's ok. I, know what it's like to be mistreated for how you are.
Garnet: You wanna see something?
Freddy: What is it?
(Garnet de-fuses into Ruby and Sapphire*
Freddy: What the? What is this?
Ruby: Garnet, divided by two. I'm Ruby.
(Freddy shakes hands with Ruby and Sapphire*
Freddy: How is this possible?
Ruby: Where we come from, people have all sorts of abilities. What me and Sapphire do is a thing called fusion.
Sapphire: You are correct.
(Ruby and Sapphire fuse back into Garnet*
Garnet: So what did you think?
Freddy: It's confusing, but, I liked Ruby and Sapphire. Alot of this stuff is confusing.
Garnet: You'll get used to it overtime.
(a little later*
(Freddy is standing on the warp pad*
Freddy: Ok, teleport. Transport? Open sesame? Elevate?
(Pearl walks in*
Pearl: What are you doing?
Freddy: How do you guys make these things work? I wanna go somewhere and get flowers for Rose.
Pearl: You have to be a Gem to use the warp pads.
Freddy: Do you know where I can find some flowers?
Pearl: I might know a place or two.
(cut to a meadow*
(Pearl and Freddy warp to the meadow*
Freddy: You weren't kidding, there's tons of flowers. (runs down and attempts to pick a few flowers* She's gonna love these, I know it! (pulls at least 6 flowers* Do you think she'll like these?
Pearl: I don't see why not.
Freddy: Ok. (pulls 6 more flowers* I'm ready. *runs back to the warp pad* Thank you Pearl.
Pearl: It was no trouble.
(Freddy hugs Pearl's leg, and he and Pearl warp back to the temple*
Pearl: Alright, I gotta run out. (warps out*
(Freddy is sitting by the warp pad, humming Kiss' "Hard Luck Woman" when Rose warps in*
Rose: Oh, hello Freddy.
(Freddy gets up and holds out the flower*
Freddy: These are for you.
Rose: Well thank you.
Freddy: No, thank YOU.
Rose: For what?
Freddy: Before you, no one cared about me. You just might be the closest thing I have to a friend.
(Rose takes the flowers, then kneels down and hugs Freddy*
Rose: That really means alot. Hey, wanna see something amazing?
Freddy: Do I?
(cut to a desert*
Rose and Freddy warp to the desert*
Freddy: A desert? What's out here?
Rose: Just wait.
(just then, seven lions come walking in, and Freddy hides behind Rose*
Rose: It's alright, they won't hurt you.
(Freddy peeks out from behind Rose and walks out from behind her*
Rose: Well go ahead.
(Freddy steps off the warp pad and nervously walks toward the lions, but when one of them looks toward him, he reels back in fright*
Rose: It's ok.
(Freddy steps forward, and one of the lions licks Freddy's face*
Freddy: They're not gonna eat me?
Rose: They're friendly.
(Freddy pets one of the lions and smiles a small bit*
Freddy: It's like a giant cat. (rests his head on the lion's mane*
(cut to the temple*
(Rose and Freddy warp to the temple*
Freddy: You're the greatest. (hugs Rose, who then sets him down* I think I'm gonna like it here.
cut to 50 years later*
(in a boiler room*
(dream demon Freddy is holding a photo of him and Rose Quartz from when he was a child*
Freddy: Good times. Thank you, Steven Universe, for letting me see Rose Quartz again.
