„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’.

“Sounds like my stomach when I am hungry.” Dr. Crag grins.
Nobody else laughs.
