A small river partly covered with ice. Rocks on the ice are surrounded by snow and give the appearance of eyes.

„Mum, look, the ice has eyes!“

“They’re just stones, Billy.”

The next day, reports of the sudden appearance of large clusters of strange rock formations in areas previously covered by ice are trending. Geologists and glaciologists name them ‘Eye-Erratics’ and contradict the tabolids’ claim that ‘something has awoken.’ The scientists predict that increasing temperatures will surface many more strange but harmless formations.

“Wakey-wakey!” Dr. Hyouga chuckles while chipping a sample off of an ‘eye’.

“What’s that sound?” Dr. Stein asks. “Doesn’t sound like a rock slide.”

“Sounds like my stomach when I am hungry.” Dr. Crag grins.

Nobody else laughs.

Rumble, rumble…
