Something blocked my path. ” A scream escaped my throat before I could stop it. ” I cried. Sheena caught up to me. “Huh? ” And then she saw it too. It was hard to miss! ” A big creature blocked the passage. It was shiny and black and smooth. And almost perfectly round. It sat in a disgusting puddle of thick white slime. I’d never seen anything like it before. Except—something about it looked familiar.

Know what? ” “A swim? ” I cried, my voice rising. “We probably would have seen him! Besides, since when does Dr. D. just go for a swim? ” “Well—there’s always a first time,” Sheena suggested.
