As the day wore on, Lexi recieved more and more messages concerning the bizarre rabbit-and-hawk image that kept reappearing everywhere. Umberchild was not the only one to have seen it and, as more and more people became aware of it - or, more than likely, had it attack their screens as well - news spread like a wildfire across the web.
