Breaking the Bank.

“What’s in it?” Glenella asked, picking up the pink ceramic container and shaking it. Her antennae buzzed with excitement, sensing the precious metals within. “I’ve seen these before,” Arkille replied, smug in his understanding of the history of this strange world. “Inhabitants used them to store trinkets with their likeness etched on one side…” Glenella grabbed the container in her claws and opened it in a mighty smash. As they dined on the delicious alloys within, Glenella wondered which side depicted the former masters of this world; the buzzard on one side, or the balding head attached to the slug-foot?
