The sea is all black and bobbly, because PauAmma has just risen up out of Pusat Tasek. Pusat Tasek is underneath,so I havent drawn it. The Man is waving his curvy kris-kniie at PauAmma.

And the Eldest Magician said, No, PauAmma, I will not give you back your shell, foryou will grow bigger and prouder and stronger,and perhaps you will forget your promise, andyou will play with the Sea once more. Then Pau Amma said, What shall I do ? Iam so big that I can only hide in Pusat Tasek,and if I go anywhere else, all
