Ms. Clam yawns and a current knocks her pearl away, so Mr. Fish promises to help her find it. He looks but can't find it so he has to swim down where there's less light. Mr. Fish wants to keep his promise to his friend, but he's scared of the dark! He swims down and down some more until he's in a deep, dark trench. He almost heads back before he finds the pearl because he is scared, but then his friend Miss Shimmer swims with him and he feels braver since he's not alone. They find the pearl and return it to Ms. Clam together.
