At the end, The Box Giant climbs over the mountain, roars and frightens Christina. How does the The Box acquire the power of movement and sound?

Bearing gifts to your birth, belatedly. This is a talisman of travel, an embodiment of movement. With this, small things can move swiftly, and big things are unstoppable. An added bonus is the audio feature, which gives voice to what is otherwise impossible to hear. I enjoy tuning into fairy gossip in the forest, or the reveling of fish under the water. I whipped this up after my bicycle got crunched by a saurian. I liked that bicycle a lot but this is way more fun. Anyway, I prefer to travel light, so... here you go.

I glimpse how this might facilitate our collaborative scenario. However, the journey between the Daughters is long. Without this talisman, walking might take you awhile. No doubt you'd eventually procure some augmentation. Let us expedite. Would you be insulted if I offered a gift also? Is the age of tit for tat sufficiently obscured by the haze of passing years?

Presents? I love presents!

Due east, just over the dunes and through the woods. Now, Buffalo Joe, go!

This is what the motorcycle says...

B
Surprised Joe? Delight is ours!

J
How have you managed this miracle?

B
Piece of cake. The merging of mycelia and mediatronic substrate set the stage for our twinning. After the divine spark, every mediatronic device became our kith and kin. While Veronique was in the womb, we located and assimilated the mediatronic ubiquity, boxes... and beyond. This bad ass mad max incarnation of us was stashed by a savvy prepper who made her transition in the long ago. Hop on, cowboy.

You minx.
