Plot SummaryEdit

Malachi is reading a book when Seventeen comes calling with Brian by her side. Seventeen enthusiastically urges Malachi to see Brian's new trick: finding water with a stick. Malachi decides to accompany them and they trek through various areas, with Brian using the stick as their guide. To Seventeen's amazement and Malachi's surprise, Brian eventually does lead them to a working outdoor water tap.



In order of appearance from left to right.

Feral CatEdit

The Feral Cat is located in the lower left side of the fifth panel. Its position is close to Malachi and is positioned so that the viewer will mistake it for one of the rocks in the scene.


  • Dowsing is a technique for searching for underground water, minerals, or anything invisible, by observing the motion of a pointer (traditionally a forked stick, now often paired bent wires) or the changes in direction of a pendulum, supposedly in response to unseen influences.
