When Fakir sees it, he's thinking of other things:

what he said to Tutu

(When the Raven faces you, strike! You can't guard Mytho with just heartshards!)

and what Mytho said to him.

(Why do you hinder me from regaining my heart, Fakir? I want to get my heart back.

Fakir -- you're trembling. Why?)

But Fakir's looking down as he remembers, so he sees the thing glimmer on the stone stairs leading out from the ballroom. It's a butterfly-wing pendant in rose and gold, and it flickers, as Fakir watches, into a plain red stone on a simple chain.

"Is that--"

It is. It's the necklace Tutu always wears. Fakir bends to pick it up and slips it into his pocket.

Duck is at the lake, and she is exceedingly puzzled.

I turned into a duck before I knew what was happening!

Maybe she quacked without realizing it? It was pretty distracting, with Fakir threatening everybody and Mytho hugging him and all! Oh well - there's water here, and if she jumps in she'll just go back to being a girl like always . . .

Except, maybe, not so much this time.

What? Why am I not returning to normal? She stares down at her fuzzy duck head in the water - and doesn't notice that she's thinking of her girl-form as 'normal', now, and not the duck-shape she was born with.

But she does notice what's missing.

Her pendant - her pendant is gone!

Where could it be? It's gotta be somewhere!

Duck looks in the classroom where she had last transformed, in the road, up trees, under tables; not a red glinting anything does she see.

Kinkan Town is a big place, and an exhaustive search makes for a lot of ground to cover for one little duck with stubby legs. Eventually, without quite realizing it that she's not moving anymore, she stops running.

Anyone with a very keen ear passing by the front door of the school might hear tiny duck snores.

Duck peers over her shoulder, sleepily - and then practically flails herself into a heart attack, as she realizes that a.) she fell asleep and b.) Fakir is looming over her! Looking giant! And Fakir-ish!

What is Fakir doing with her pendant? He doesn't even wear jewelry!

The pendant's right there; maybe if she gives a might tug with her beak, Fakir will let it go -

The duck blinks at him for a moment, and then gives another tremendous yank.

. . . what? Her innocence?

Duck is so startled by this comment - or maybe it's the smile? - that she drops the chain of the necklace and flushes, without really knowing why.

The warmth of Fakir's hand lifts off her head.

Duck stares after him in shock for a moment, and then jumps up with a tremendous flailing quack! and scurries after him towards the school building.

First carrying her around, then feeding her breadcrumbs, now petting her head like he's nice or something - all this kindness from Fakir is VERY CONFUSING and needs to stop RIGHT NOW!
