Shirl’s prize possession is the crystal that she always wears around her neck. The only item left to her by her mother. Searching for a missing friend, Shirl finds herself in front of a portal her glowing amethyst opens. She blindly enters the event horizon with no clue of where she will end up, desperately hoping to find her friend.
