Um...is there any way I can help?

Alexis looks slightly embarrassed after asking this question.

Oh I'm sorry I didn't mean to impose or anything...

This "idle banter" is about a mysterious dream. We learned about a new location, but we don't actually know where it is.

Is there anyone we could ask? (I ask, getting a bit antsy because I'm very curious over where this place could be.)

(I look all around us for someone besides us, but I don't see many other fish. As I do, I spot motion up above us and see a lone bird of some sort floating on the surface above.)

Why don't we ask a bird like that guy? (I suggest.) I mean, birds go lots of places anyway, don't they?

"Oh yes, certainly," Helga says to Pablo. "Let's see if he can help."

"Don't worry," she says to Alexis. "I'm sure we'll all find ways to help each other. I'd be delighted just to have you come with us."

Helga approaches the bird.

EEK! Donít eat me!!! (She screams.)

Hey, hey, hey, calm down! None of us are gonna eat you! (I quickly say before the tern can fly away.)

Nadox moves up a little, so his head is above the water.

We're looking for some place called Mystic Grotto.

Mystic...Grotto... (The bird says. She wades around in a few circles for a bit. (I hope we didn't scare her for no reason...). Finally, her face lights up.) Aha!

You know where it is? (I ask.)

Yeah! Yeah! (The bird says.) My flock's been talking about it and we're gonna pass by it soon! C'mon, follow me!

(She lifts off the water and begins flying...I guess northward?)

"Very well, let's go."

Helga begins swimming along with Nadox and the others.


Once everyone is gone, something else darts out from the kelp and swims off in a different direction. It's the orca from earlier. He swims deeper and deeper into the ocean. As it gets deeper, a gemstone embedded in his forehead starts to glow.

Eventually, the orca reaches a huge, dark form in the water. It's a sperm whale, also with a glowing gem.

"Well, Preston? I don't see a dead, giant octopus in your mouth."

"Yeah, about that... she got away. Sorry."

"Idiot! How could you have so much trouble capturing one animal?"

"Well, it's not just one animal now! She's got company. A bunch of animals saying they all had the same dream or something."

"What animals?"

"There's Nadox, a giant siphonophore, Pablo, a whale shark, Daryl, a nudibranch, a sea turtle whose name I didn't catch, Fern, a regal tang, Lancelot, a swordfish, a pardalocampus, squid, and seahorse whose names I also missed, and a jellyfish named Alexis. Something is unusual about these animals. Seems like they can swim anywhere - without your gems."

"Ohohoho, how interesting! I knew there was something special about that octopus, but now there's more of them! You have done well, Preston."

"And, I even found out where they're going. A place called Mystic Grotto."

"Then we'll just stop them before they get there. Listen up, Preston. I want you to gather up all our allies, and have them ambush these creatures as soon as possible. Bring them to me alive, so that I may take their powers. The day I become empress of the ocean is almost at hand!"

"Yes, Leviti."

"Now go!"

(Following the tern, eventually I see this enormous flock of birds sitting on the water ahead of us. Wow, I've never seen so many birds in my life...I guess that's because I've never gone far from my home at all.)

You guys wait here! I'll go find the bird who knows all about how to get there! (The bird says, flying off again.)

Sure. (I say.)

"Well... I guess we wait now."

As he finishes saying this, Lancelot glances back at the direction the group came from, just to make sure they aren't being followed. Earlier, he had a nagging feeling...

(As we wait, I feel lots of tiny feet landing on the top of my head and my back. Oh great, I'm a perch for all these birds now. Please don't poop on me...)

(The tern eventually comes back with a slightly bigger tern.) This is my dad! He knows about the grotto!

So Colette tells me you all are looking for the Mystic Grotto, eh? (He asks us.)

The pardalokampus pokes her head above the water's surface- a clear advantage of having both lungs and gills. Hello there! My name's Kelpdapple, by the way.

Feeling braver, she starts floating towards the surface but doesn't breach it yet.

Alexis looks excited upon seeing the birds. They start swimming towards the surface, only to suddenly realise what they're doing and turn back to Helga anxiously.

Oh jeez, I almost went and embarrased myself in front of those birds...what would a tiny jellyfish even say to them?...

Well...the good news is that you aren't far! (The dad tern tells me, motioning straight ahead of me.) You just have to follow the shore north until the water turns crystal clear, and then find the trail of purple clam shells.

So...go north along the shore until the water turns crystal clear, and then follow the purple clamshells? (I repeat, making sure I heard him right.)

That's right, big fellow! (He tells me.) You just have to follow the purple shells for about an hour or two and you'll be there!

Oh, thanks a ton! (I thank him.) Man, we would have probably gotten lost if we hadn't found you guys.

Glad we could help! (Colette says.) Hey, maybe we'll meet you guys again there some time!

Yeah, that'd be cool. Thanks again! I'll tell the others! (I say. I look toward my back.) Okay, guys, everyone off! Going underwater here!

(Once all the birds have flown off of me, I sink beneath the surface and go back to everyone else.)

Okay, guys, I think I know where we need to go now! (I say.)
