After he picks up the slug, it takes off from his hand, flapping its wings.

He thinks about the box. He doesn't know what's in it, and it doesn't match the description of any box he's heard about previously. A glowing box in a dark room? there are some metaphors that matches. But why now? right before he shows up on a floating rock.

He is indeed on a floating rock. A barren floating rock, maybe 20 feet across. There are scrubby bushes on it, but nothing with large leaves. Or food. There is quite a bit of vegetation though, and he can strip that off to make coverings -- though he's not sure how warm it is.

The sky near him isn't quite empty: there are four or five floating rocks off in the distance. They seem bigger than this one. Perhaps.
