The story starts out with Jeff finding a doll on the beach. His friend Ray tells him to keep and fix it up to sell it, since it seems to be rather valuable. Later that night, the doll starts talking, predicting the future. After initial skepticism, Jeff starts taking the doll's predictions seriously. One night, the doll predicts that he will sleep with Ray. It comes true, much to Jeff's surprise. Everything goes great for a while, but then the doll predicts that Ray will cheat on Jeff. He does, and Jeff resolves to get rid of the doll. When all his attempts fail including throwing an incinerator), he calls Kenny Tachibana, an author who has published various books on paranormal phenomena. Kenny helps Jeff finally get rid of the doll, and they end up dating.
