Offer A Leaf
But that said, you don't have too much in the way of gifts for this little shrine. However, you remember something about leaves having some sort of religious significance to Eastern cultures, and there are plenty of leaves around here...
You smartly pluck one and place it on the shrine, wondering if anything will come of it. The glowy runes could have just been some part of a prank, after all... Even if you're having some trouble believing that the way the words appeared in your head were anything other than magic.
As if your thoughts beckon them, the words appear once more in your head, a response to the leaf you've placed.
'Very clever, offering a gift of nature and nothing of your own possession. Your guile has not gone unnoticed, suiting you perfectly for the role of the trickster.'
You blink in confusion, but before you can process the words, the glow seems to flow out from the stone and towards you. Your eyes widen as you see where the magic-for what else could it be-is headed, and you move to shield yourself as it enters...
