A mysterious past or a fortunate future?
Like a female Indiana Jones, a newspaper reporter dives beneath the
waves near the
Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. The reporter, Amaryllis Lang, is shocked
to find old, barnacle-studded pyramids—so old they must be from an
ancient civilization. She gets her equally awe- struck photographer,
Garret Lucas, to take pictures. And before she goes, she darts inside
the opening of one pyramid top and steals away a glowing crystal orb,
which has a fascinating effect on her mind.
Together, Amaryllis and Garret hurry back to the the Los Angeles
Star. The editor is overjoyed thinking he has a story on the
discovery of the lost continent of Atlantis. “A
Pulitzer!” he shouts. “Start
working on your story now.”
