Extra Lucky

The taxi driver told me all about the individual amulets on the pedestals of his taxi shrine. He told me which temple each one comes from, which amulets are the luckiest, which ones attract a mate, and how much each charm cost. I asked him about the empty spot at the top, and he told me a passenger bought it. Apparently, the one that was purchased is supposed to be extra lucky. And that's why the driver charged him double what he originally paid for it.
