Being born with cute red dots guarantees you are going to be an original.

They broke the mold when you got made.

But all those red dots tend to draw attention to you whether you want it or not.

It is very hard to hide “cuteness.”

Luckily, it is not impossible.

One good method is to simply draw in all the parts of you that are red-dotted. Situating yourself next to an earth-toned structure when you do this can help you pass yourself off as just another (unusually cute) rock amidst the surrounding landscape.

By withdrawing all (or at least most) of your red-dotted parts, you can perfect your “rock imitation” and go undetected.

With time and more practice, you will become even more adept at stealthily blending in with your natural surroundings.

Of course, there is bound to be an error here and there. These are great for learning what not to forget to do next time!

When you are still learning how to employ “stealth mode,” you are bound to forget a thing or two at least a time or two.

Do you have any stealth tips for Malti?
