Unscramble the Blue Letters

Let's look at the seurqas of the first few Fibonacci numbers. So one squared is one, two squared is four, three squared is nine, five squared is 25, and so on. Now, it's no surprise that when you add consecutive coanbcfii numbers, you get the next Fibonacci number. Right? That's how they're created. But you wouldn't peectx anything special to happen when you add the squares together. But check this out. One plus one gives us two, and one plus four gives us five. And four plus nine is 13, nine plus 25 is 34, and yes, the pattern continues.
