Charlie points to a letter at the top of the piece of graph paper. He points to a number along the side. One finger traces down the column and his other finger meets it by following across the row.
What’s that? Is it a robot carrying all the fish? Lyla
Why are all the numbers and letters here? Arya
Where’s the swimming pool? Chester
Do you have to do a hotel or can it be other things too? Lauri
Is that robot kinda one of those guys in aquariums to get food for fish? Sevi
What’s that little house thing in the middle? Birdie
So are the fish swimming into the tank to get back to the shore? Jane
It’s an underwater sub. H11. Charlie
So I can find the squares easily. So I don’t have to go 1 – 2 – 3 – 4 – 5 – 6 … it’s easier. Charlie
There isn’t one. Because it’s underwater. The whole thing’s on a deck and there’s water under. Charlie
It can be anything. Charlie
It is an underwater sub that collects shells and brings them up. Charlie
That;s the tank so the fishes don’t get out. You have to spin that to get in and then spin it back. Charlie
That’s a dead fish if you’re asking. Charlie
