Some parts of this one were harder to understand, but the general idea of the story is nice and I cannot get over the word play of "something else", it's brilliant.

He shook the wallet, the plastic compartments dangled and a small card hung in front of their host's eyes. Van Meteren was leading the way and they followed obediently.
