Subj: A whispering voice

Several beams of light crossing the sky caused people to rush towards
the Dry Plains to investigate. Valko was first to reach the dark fissure
in the middle of the plains and he was soon joined by others. A strange
pattern of lines covered the fissure, shifting in light and humming
quietly as the energy flowed across the dark hole.

From deep within the pulsating light, a feeble voice could be heard.
'Anyone listening?'

The gathered people looked at the light and responded in the
affirmative. The light continued to hum quietly and soon the voice
returned, sounding a bit more desperate as if the response had not been

'Can anyone hear me?'

Again Xantera tried to reach the person calling for attention, but in
vain. Soon the light in the sky faded along with the voice, leaving only
the pulsating pattern above the fissure and more questions than answers.
