Back at the Hub, Jack and Ianto set their burden down beside the rift pool.
“That came through the Rift?” asked Owen.
“Yep. Don’t poke it.”
“Why would I want to poke it?”
“Because it turns pretty colours when poked,” Jack replied.
“Okay, so then why shouldn’t I poke it?”
“He doesn’t like it.” Ianto set a plate of pebbles beside the triangular lump.
“He? It’s alive?”
“Yeah, we only found out when Jack started poking him. Apparently sunlight makes him very sleepy.”
“What are the pebbles for?”
“Dinner,” their new guest rumbled, opening its single eye and grinning toothily.
