Ferris nodded. "He says one of us already knows, though. So maybe we just need to get everyone together and see what the deal is."

"And how they figured it out," Sunny added with a nod.

i think we're haunted
i can hear the echoes of the past
thought i could forgive you
but it's funny how long this pain can last

i think we're haunted
and i would give anything to forget
and give you what you've wanted
so i can stop living in regret

"Yeah," he nodded and frowned slightly as he thought about it. "We'd better head back then."

"Yeah, I think so too," Sunny agreed, though part of her really didn't want to leave.

Ferris went to go find Cato, who was up front talking with Elias. He cleared his throat and Cato turned to him with a half-interested look.
"Uh, I think Sunny and I are will head back up soon," Ferris told him.
"So you're really from the surface?" Elias asked eagerly, making Ferris go red again
"I - uh - yeah, um, yup. We've got legs," he said and then quickly swam back over to Sunny.

"I'm from Ohio," Sunny added, just to see how Elias would react to it. "There's not an ocean anywhere by it."

Elias mouthed the word Ohio, but then blinked when she said there was no ocean. "Wait, then how...how?" He gestured to her tail.

"I'm still not sure, really. Witches - a different group of witches - told us they gave the potion to as many people as possible, but it only worked for Ferris and me," Sunny explained, shrugging again.

"Huh," Elias hummed, looking thoughtful. "If that's the case, then I wonder what's so special about the two of you," he said, tapping his chin and frowning.

Sunny had been wondering that for a while now. She shrugged, and brushed her hair out of her eyes. "That's the million dollar question, huh?"

"The what?" Elias' brows furrowed.

"Oh. It's, uh, an expression. It means that's what we really want to know," she explained.

"Oh," Elias chuckled. "Then yes, that is the million dollar question."

Sunny nodded, and cast another glance over at Ferris, who, fortunately, seemed to have remembered how to breathe. "You wouldn't happen to know if that's one of the answers we find, right?"

"If I knew that, I wouldn't be asking about it," Elias said apologetically.
