Persephone didn't listen and, in the same trance, touched her magatama to the stone. The stone started to shake and glow brightly. Ken said "It's gonna blow. Duck and cover." He grabbed Persephone and hid behind his desk.
Everyone embraced for impact as it shook and shook more and more. However instead of exploding, it glowed brilliantly and then shut off. It then cracked and crumbled into pieces. The magatama still glowing.
“ you need to be more careful, giving away research material was a stupid decision.” Demeter scolds. “ it could have even been potentially dangerous, for all we know, it could have been a beacon and summoned gojira right to your sister.”
"I didn't think that specific magatama would be important. I was just trying to make my sister feel better. I'll just take it back." Ken responded. He said to Persephone "Alright hand me the magatama. We need to study it more." Persephone took a step back and said "I can't do that."
Persephone said "I know, but something tells me it might be better if I keep it for a while." Ken said "Persephone, that magatama could attract Godzilla to you, or worse. I don't want to see you hurt."
“ it would be far safer for you and everyone else.” Demeter explained. “ besides, there’s a job opening here as a research assistant, both of us should have enough sway to get her the position.” She said switching to talking to ken mid conversation.
Ken sighed and said "I don't like the idea of using my sister as a lab rat for kaiju research. On the other hand, she needs a job." Ken turned to Persephone and said "What do you think, Persephone?" Persephone said "Don't I need credentials or something to be a lab assistant?"
“ research assistants just handle the filing really.” Demeter corrected. “ anything you learn in the job can be sued to becoming a lab assistant though.” She says.
“ look, we don’t have much of a choice thanks to you Dr.”
