"Hello," a voice rang out. It startled me and I spun around.
"That’s real funny, Roy," I said.
"Hello," repeated the voice. We all sprang to our feet in terror. The voice was coming from inside the stone. Mike inched slowly toward the stone, knelt down and carefully examined the sides. The stone let off a loud rumbling noise and Mike jumped back, scaring us all again. The large object, which we thought to be a stone, was actually the largest clamshell any of us had ever laid eyes on. We all waited quietly in anticipation of what would happen next. The top half of the shell began to separate from the bottom in an upward swinging motion. The fine line that separated the two halves was now clearly visible. This was absolutely incredible. Roy peered into the opening and yelled back.
"Hello." We waited for a reply. Suddenly a very calm and soothing voice began to speak to us.
"I am Mother Of Pearl," she said. "I am perhaps the oldest and wisest clam alive. I am over seven hundred years old. You have come to me by forces I cannot explain to you at this time. Let’s just say it’s destiny. I’ve waited a long time for you kids and each of you will play such an important role in helping the Clam Clan Empire to survive and exist."
