The lock clicked and the chest swung open.
"YES! FREEDO- Oh rain. It's raining, quick get the umbrella."
Several crashes and a few growls sound from the chest before a huge beach eye-burningly bright neon umbrella began to slide upwards out of the chest. Two, four, six feet- far larger than anything that would fit into the chest. It rose upwards, hovering above the fountain and began to drift off towards the building.
"No! Stay! We need you to keep us dry."
Sullenly, the umbrella drifted back to cover the chest and the fountain, sulking like a scolded child.
Two pale hands emerged from the chest next, gripping the edge of them. Several additional crashes, a sudden surge of hissing and a few swears later, a face of a young man also emerged. A dark haired, blue eyed young man with a very expressive face, though the only thing it appeared to be expressing now was exasperation. Something squeaked and a small animal squirmed out to sit on his head. It was reminded one vaguely of an otter or a weasel, although the multifaceted insect eyes and small mane of quills distracted from that idea.
"Normally, I'd just use the ladder, but Znubb here apparently lost it somewhere." The young man said as he glared upwards towards the weasel-creature.
Znubb, in defiance of it's small size, grumbled like a thunderstorm with it's quills clacking against one and other.
"My fault? How is this my fault? I always pack the ladder." He fumed, "Now you've gotten me all distracted."
He paused to gather himself before looking at this new person.
"Greetings earthling! I come in peace, yadda yadda yadda, you know the rest. I'm.. er.. Znubb, give me a good name for this dimension."
Znubb was apparently taking the time to wash itself like some strange cat. It made a long whistling sound, ending with a crackle.
"Gerald? Well, I guess that'll do." He refocused on this.. whoever it was.
"I guess I'm Gerald."
