"Ping here and yah I still got detention for that totally epic prank that I didn't even do but now things are really heating up. Like a Key that the Taz gave me that's now the thing that everyone wants. I've been using it for a while to get around the underground tunnels and there's freaky stuff down there. Like brainwashing rooms, robot chambers and this Crazy pyramid. Seems that my key, with a second one that the Parents Council has, can open it. Lynch, the guy who set me up for the original prank, sure wants the key. Then the Outcasts tried to get it. But if the Taz wants me to be the one to open the pyramid the Million dollar question is whats inside?"
Lee is looking through his house when he smells a distinct and familiar scent, realizing that he's here. Lee finds a familiar photograph of his family in Korea but he is ambushed by his pursuer who not only has the Key but also knocks Lee out by blowing dust into his face.
