>Go search for the SOURCE, ignoring the fact that you (probably) can't swim very well.
You do so, and bypass your lack of SWIMMING ABILITY with walking along the LITTLE SHORE on either side. You climb out of the WATER and the three of you (plus STEVE) head along the PASSAGE, but it eventually gets really tight: so cramped, in fact, that you cannot move, tsk.
You notice that the WATER has gotten more ORANGE, and you can see GLOWING ORANGE CRACKS in the WALLS around the TUNNEL. Myk seems to be extremely uneasy, and she's actually stayed back about FIVE FEET or so.
Either you find a way to blow up the ORANGE GLOWY ROCK VEINS and keep going, or you head back and take a different ROUTE.
>Come up with a RATIONAL REASON why Myk would be worried about the GLOWING WATER
You put on your best SCIENCY EXPRESSION as you ponder the REASON. You stare intently at her BODY, and notice the CHITINOUS ARMOUR that covers her appears to have faint SLIVERS OF BLUE. Looking into your POUCH you realize that STEVE also seems extremely uncomfortable and agitated. And that GLOWING BLUE CYLINDER melted into the WATER...
Aha! You figure that the BLUE CRYSTAL, which perhaps makes up a noticeable portion of OOLABEDC PHYSIOLOGY, reacts negatively with the ORANGE CRYSTAL and breaks down at the MOLECULAR LEVEL on DIRECT CONTACT.
... Why? Because SCIENCE, duh.
