Sophia frowned as something else sounded outside the home she shared with her twin sister. That was not a storm noise, that was a something else noise.

"That was weird," she muttered, moving to peer out the kitchen window in case she could see anything.

Pearl had heard the sound as well, and was already getting up to investigate.

"What was that?" she asked when she saw her sister already at the window. She couldn't see much through the rain on the glass.

"Not sure," Sophie told her, frowning a bit still. "I can't see well enough. It wasn't thunder, though." She was half-tempted to go look, but the storm was pretty bad. "We might have to wait to find out."

"Storm shouldn't last too much longer," Pearl said, trying to gauge the clouds through the rain. "It didn't sound too far away."

"Once it's not raining so hard we can go look," Sophie agreed, shaking herself briefly. "No point going out right now."

"Yeah," Pearl agreed, nodding. She grinned. "Though it's not like we'd melt immediately," she teased.

"Not immediately," Sophie teased right back with a grin. "Still. I'm feeling fussy, I don't really want to go running around in pouring rain right now."

Pearl nodded and went back to the adult coloring book she was absently filling in, listening to the rain and low thunder.

After the rain had finally stopped, Sophie pulled on a pair of boots and headed outside, taking a quick look around. Nobody else in their little neighborhood was out, which was unsurprising. The sound she'd heard had sounded like it was coming from the north, so the back of their property, probably beyond the tree line considering she didn't see anything in the yard.

Pearl pulled on a jacket and her own boots and followed. It was still misting a little, and a bit of a fog was starting to roll in, but it was worlds better than the pouring rain.

"Wish we had some idea of what we were looking for," she commented to Sophia. "It didn't sound too far away."

"It didn't," Sophie agreed. "But I haven't got a clue what it was."

It took several minutes of walking and looking around before she found a little crater. "Hey, come look."

Pearl went over when she heard her sister. When she saw the crater, she blinked.

"Is that a meteorite?" she asked. "Like an honest-to-god space rock?"

"That is what it looks like." Sophia blinked, stepping closer carefully. "Odd, though, it's almost perfectly round..."

Pearl glanced around, and picked up a stick. Reaching out, she poked the rock with the stick to see what would happen. At first, nothing happened, and then the outside of the rock crumbled away to reveal something small and sparkling inside.

It was the sparkling that really caught Sophia'sattention. She found a stick of her own and nudged the broken bits away from the shiny bit.

"That's cool," she muttered, looking at the shiny crystal looking thing.

"Yeah it is," Pearl agreed, poking it with her own stick. It sparkled prettily in the overcast light.

"Huh." Sophia crouched down and very carefully touched it with her fingers, ready to yank them back in case it burned. But it wasn't hot. It almost crackled with energy, but it wasn't hot. She carefully picked it up, eyes a bit wide.

Pearl watched it carefully as Sophia picked it up.

"It's glowing," she said, not looking away. "That can't be good."

"No glowing is generally not good," Sophia agreed, frowning. "But it's not hot or anything like I'd expect." She held it out so Pearl could take a closer look.

Reaching out, Pearl took the stone, turning it over in her fingers.

"It's not even warm," she said. She jumped and nearly dropped it when purple energy sparked and crackled around her knuckles.

“I don’t know,” Pearl replied, shaky. “I’m going to—“ She yelped when it crackled again. “I’m going to try to get a feel for it, see what it is.”

"Just be careful," Sophia told her anxiously, watching carefully, just in case she had to jump in and help.

Pearl nodded and turned her full attention to the stone. It was still glowing and sparking in her hand. Cautiously, she extended her gift, quickly mapping out the physical structure of the stone in her mind, etching it into her spirit just a little as she matched herself to it to get a taste of its power. The purple glow started to spread into her fingers. Suddenly, it crackled and sparked harder than before, and she flinched and dropped it.

Sophia eyed it warily and made no move to pick it up yet.

"What did you get from it?" she asked quietly, glancing at her sister.
