In the heart of the Chihuahuan Desert, Manche and Albert went searching for the lost city of Zhedurururuax. They discover the ruins of the once magnificent city and separate to cover more ground.
After a short time of being separated, Manche hears a peculiar noise, like the familiar sound of the man being transformed into a pear. She turns back to find the source of the sound, ending up in the place where she last saw Albert. There, hovering above the sand, is a giant, elevating pear.
Albert, somehow, has been transformed into this giant, floating pear.
