Nicky and Jonathon sneak into the cavern and lock Mr. Furbelow out. They venture deeper, until a strange pulsating noise scares Nicky back out again. She gathers her strength and they go further into the caves until they find a tall, standing stone, from which Nicky hears a muffled voice. Jonathon hears nothing, but Nicky starts speaking to it, pleading the case for humanity and its machines with a primal force that, in seeking to restore balance to the world, has thrown things even further out of balance.
