Melody learned that the children were in big trouble by their parents and that they were grounded for a week, so she decided to remind the children to run away from home. Melody told the children that they had to run away from home, so they could be safe in Neverland. All the children had run away from home, and they were safe in Neverland. When Prince Eric and Ariel, Melody's parents, found out about they were absolutely furious. As punishment for getting the children to run away from home and for not listening to their advice, Eric and Ariel told Melody that she had to clean up the elephant's pen in hard labor.
