Sprill made a discovery a year ago that got him some attention from aliens. He discovered a rather odd pearl and just when he was about to give it to the aliens they tricked him. Getting the pearl back, Sprill takes it to his friend Ritchie who may be able to discover why it's so important. One evening Sprill gets a late night call from Ritchie telling him to come over as soon as possible. Sprill agrees and quickly heads over to his friends house to find out what he had discovered about the pearl and bring his friend something to eat as well.
