QUIET! Ewie has something to say.
Is that . . . a water flea?
Through a big lense mounted in front of an aquarium, you watch as a little creature in the water floats up and down.
It slides through the sand and starts to draw . . . letters?
The amethyst poking through the sand shines brightly, and the one in your pocket seems to get warmer.
You hold it in your hand and feel as if it's . . . calling you to do something.
You'll figure it out . . . but for now, the flea looks hungry.
