A man named To'ula returned home to Kipi Island (where only seven people had wrist watches) in the southeastern division of Papua-New Guinea after having served three years in prison in Port Moresby for the murder of his wife. He'd just come back when the Voice of the Crab burned in his body. He fell, foaming at the lips, onto the sand, and when he regained consciousness he hurried to tell the village elders that he had a message.
