Unlocked

It's a peculiar old lock on this chest, these ribs and skin, these two odd hairy dials, but it must be unlocked to let the emotions out. They exert pressure. If kept inside, they'd rot and stink and turn to tar.

The key to the chest is empathy, which when it resonates at a certain frequency it turns the tumblers and out spills a hot torrent of feelings. These feelings can be strong like booze or certain teas and equally intoxicating and calming as if we were all the same.

So that what those are, dials. Would a purple nurple also unlock the chest?

No, these dials are high-tech, like touch-screen technology. All you got to do is run your finger in a circle around them a couple times and they'll unlock like a car door.
