Both Stan and Ford had knowledge of how to get around Gravity Falls without being detected, it took a while but they finally managed to make it back to the Mystery Shack. Mabel was starting to stir in Stan’s arms; Stan sighed and laid her down on the couch, while Ford got some rope.
“Whoa, what are you doing?” Stan demanded.
“Well she may not entirely remember who she is, as sad is it to say, we may need to keep her from running away while we try to remind her, I’m sure once she remembers she will forgive us” Ford said, Stan didn’t like the idea, but Ford was usually right about these sorts of things, so he let him tie Mabel’s wrists together and her feet to the leg of the couch.
After a few minutes Mabel eventually awoke with a loud “GAHHH!” she of course panicked and flailed about, trying to undo her bindings. “Mabel, calm down” Stan said softly. “What do you want from me?!” she demanded.
