Ready for The Special Room (latest)   Oh the Absurdity!

Started 4/18/18 by PTG (anotherPTG); 274071 views.

I FINISHED MY CHORES IN THE BARN AND DECIDED TO CHECK OUT THE REALM AGAIN.  AND OF COURSE GATHER THING OF USE TO US.  FOOD BEING MY MAIN GOAL.  BUT DYNAMITE FOR JEN,  INK FOR ADA, I ALSO FOUND A COUPLE OF REVOLVERS AND SOME CARTRIDGES.  MORE GUNS THAN AMMO.  BUT AT LEAST I HAVE ENOUGH TO LOAD TWO.  BACK AT THE BARN I DO A CHECK. ALL STILL HAVE FOOD AND WATER,  GUESS I WILL GO SEE WHAT KATT AND OPAL IF SHE IS BACK TO HERSELF HAVE TO EAT. 

I KICK MY BOOTS OFF SLIPPERS ON ENTER THE KITCHEN UNLOAD THE BAG OF FOOD,  I THINK THE GUNS SHOULD STAY IN IT FOR NOW.   GRAB SOME COFFEE ASK WHEN FOOD WILL BE READY AND GO TO MY CHAIR TO SIT AND ENJOY MY COFFEE.  I HOPE?

I sit with my head in my hands trying to block out the noise or should I say clatter of everyone talking at the same time except PTG and Opel they are still in a coma like stare Opel rocking and softly chanting PTG eyes glued to her hands with the necklace coverong in that cloth.

Why is it so familiar?? where have I seen it>> something a Queen would wear.

OH CRAPONACRACKER OH NO OH NO OH NO PLEASE LET IT NOT BE IT>

My head is spinning and now everyone is looking at me and backing away from me.

Memories are flooding my brain so fast I am dizzy...Shadows,,,, gloom and doom,,, fires,,, mutant orges and gnomes.

Mirrors tunnels/ portal/ mostly evil BOOKS=== 

I grab Angel go get me book #2 and hurry life or death run Angel run.

I hold up my hands and say I am sorry I startled you all but things are coming together of what is coming of what we are up against and the answers to how to stop it.

If it turns out I am right I need each and everyone in MC Land and surrounding areas and every critter.

WE CAN NOT FIGHT WITH EACH OTHER WE HAVE TO BE UNITED IN THIS WAR.

The only way this will work is unite as one.

Again if I am right the two who will be the most help here is PTG and Jenny,,, it is inpartitive that you join as one side by side back to back so to speak.

Our lives and all with in MC Land will be in your hands if I am right and if not we go back to our crazy ways ,

Angel comes in The Tea Room out of breath and soaking wet from sweating so much.

Miss Katt brings Angel a towel and an ice cold drink.

I sit and open my note book,,,,

I SLAM MY HAND ON THE TABLE ===I KNEW IT I KNEW IT,,

Pup bring me Joe's staff as soon as she enters the room the Staff glows blue and white fire,

I speak ==this is Joe's Staff given to him by The Golden Queen many years ago and it is now Pups for reasons you will all under stand in time.

Joe and I where closer than brothers ,he was my right hand man where I was he was and visa versa .

Jen asks who was he Cap,,, he was my best friend and Mr's Fletcher's husband and Pup's grandfather.

We were in the middle of a huge battle and getting our arses kicked ,,, we lost so many that day we rounded  the mountain leading to a huge enemy camp that our scout had found.

Joe and I knelled down as not to be seen,this is when we spotted it --- a huge portal where the enemies were passing in and out  ,,, killing everything in there path and dragging them through the portal.

*** I hide my face for I did not want any one to see my tears****

Joe and I were so in-trenched watching the portal we did not see behind us.

Four uggly gnomes grab us we both started to fight for our lives I slashed two of there heads off while Joe ran another threw then beheaded him  as he was turning around and I running to him the gnomes sword struck Joe square in the chest .

I managed to slice at the gnomes leg and slice it off he roared and turned to me as I lunged with all I had straight for his chest he went down but I did not stop stabbing and slashing through my tears and bellows of pain.

I crawled to Joe and cradled him in my arms with his last breath he said see ya soon bro and tell my wife I love her and to see our Granddaughter gets my Staff.

He never got to meet his granddaughter 

I stayed with him for hours in my arms saying over and over wake up ya butt head time to go to work.

There was dead silence around me ,, I picked Joe up in my arms and carried him back to our main camp.

There was so much dead and wounded around me that day a day I will never forget and the following days when our dead and wounded were sent home to be treated or buried with Military Honors

I swore then as I do now I will never let that happen again.

I know what I have to do right now,

Pup go outside by the lill hill I will join you in a minute,

When Pup left I took Opel by her arm and lead her outside PTG following us eyes glued to that cloth.

I got Opel to lay the cloth with the necklace down and to back away.

Before any one could move Pup's Staff gave out a streak of blue white flame striking the cloth.

Small wisps of smoke escape from under it and Opel said it is done and PTG fell to the ground.

I took my Sai and unfolded the cloth and saw nothing but black dust .

Frost took the now tied up cloth and took it to The Bone Kingdom and dropped it at The Skull Maw

Having taken care of that cursed necklace Pup and I went back into The Tea Room where Opel was siting at my table looking drained.

She said that cursed necklace was very black magic and very very old and that made me think back.

Many thoughts ran though my head ,,, of the first time we battled the evil that has risen to fight us once more.

We young and untrained in what we faced and in the end we managed to drive them back to there dark holes but what a price we paid so much death and destruction.

Now they have risen and with such deep hate.

I am older and wiser now and have good on my side but I know this will be a battle to end all battles we can not fail.

Not only did I loose many young soldiers and friends I lost hope when I lost Joe that hit me to my very soul but now I have new friends I call family and found the will to do battle once again and I have a part of Joe with me on my Pup.

I know they are not fighting soldiers but they have so much more in there hearts and I know we can and will over come the darkness once again.

I look over at Angel and smile she has come so far from our resident reporter to a comrade in arms who can now fight almost well as she writes she makes me very proud.

Then there is Jenny who is our resident blower upper and I know she is just biting the bit to blow the darkness back to hell.

PTG our resident  cloak of many colors My thoughts are interrupted by Angel Cap Cap ??

Yes Angel what is it ,, she hands me my note book,,, that brings me back in a hurry,

Thank you Angel now I need a minute as I start to read.

Notes Book 1 ===

**** The Battle****

While Captain Randy discusses quietly with Opel important things to remember about this "Great Epic Battle" that we "All" will all be facing way too soon...worried...My "Minds Eye" begins to wander a wee bit back to what Granny Fletcher told me about My Grandpa Joe and why.... to this very day Grandpa won't talk to Me or anyone about, (while in His Spirit Form back in the Golden Queens Realm that is dear Friends!)  blush  Grandpa's  last battle with "His Friend and Captain"..... I guess those Memories are still too painful even now to share with His young Granddaughter,,,persevere..."Come back Pup!"  Captain Randy barks at Me!  angry  Sorry Captain...flushed...Just was thinking about Grandpa Joe's Staff and how grateful I am that you saw fit that I received  both the Staff and the Dragon Sword when I was Good and Ready for them and not before!   Ya know how Angel have been practicing all of those great moves...even the very "Painful Ones" I might add Captain Randy.....unamused...Sigh!.........."Well spit it out Pup!"  Captain Randy once more barks at me...angry....Just wondering if You could go through Your vast "Arsenal" and pick out a Weapon that would be "Just right for Angel to use????  Just asking Captain Randy....just asking OK?...confused...

Do you two know how hard it is for a guy to try and follow TWO women yacking at him at THE SAME time??

Well let me tell it ain't easy .

Now one at a time == Angel first thing you have to get in your head is confidence in yourself know you can do it then get it done.

I am sure your first day as a reporter was let say nerve wracking?

Well like any thing else in your life walk proud feel you can do it and it will happen.

Now this battle coming is as I have said before life and death for us all but I would never put you or any one of us in danger so you will be with Pup so I am telling you right now get over your fear of riding Snow with Pup and if it comes to face to face fighting with one of the enemy and there will be// follow Pup's lead you will fight back to back and I know you both can do it .

Now Pup stop worrying I have the perfect weapon's for Angel come with me.

We reach The again Sleeping Blacksmith ,,, @#$%^&*()__)(*&^%$#@#$%^& he better have done what I asked him to or he will be very sorry.

I look around and spot a bundle with a note on it*** Captain Randy *****

Aw very good I open the package and am very surprised it is more than I asked for and it is perfect.

Angel here try this on as I hand her a chest plate made just for her with our Dragon LOGO * Gold on a Silver background

It fit her perfect and she was amazed how light weight it was.

Now take this ** I had this made also to fit you *** I handed her a saber like sword with a hand shield that covered her hand.**

Try it out,,, she took a few swipes and smiled until I yelled UNGUARDED .. with out thinking she swung around and locked swords with me .

There was shock but also fire no fear in her eyes at all.

Now this is a smaller version of the spiked ball and chain this you carry like this as I show her where it goes on the shield .

I look at Pup with a scowl on my face  does this meet with your approval great Dragon Rider??

Pup looked like she would explode her face so red it was almost on fire but then she saw the twinkle in my eyes and we all burst of laughing.

Okay back to The Tea Room and Pup take Angel to the open field and help her get used to her new weapons,

I watch them skip away like two school kids going to the candy store.

Now back to my book .

"Will this epic battle ever get here, or do we have to wait for Randy to complete the impossible and read a book?!"

I decide to take a nap.

This could take months.

Walking back to the Tea Room looking forward to a nice hot cup of tea and get at my notes ,,, and thinking every thing was alright Angel was with Pup and Angel would be taught by Pup in how to us her new weapons now what was in my dust bunnie filled head that thought it would be that easy.

I stop as I hear * OUCH OUCH GRRRRRRRR STOP THAT IT HURTS **

I turn around and see Opel ? and Salty on the field Opel swinging her huge rolling pin and cast iron fry pan at Salty and calling him chicken as he scoots back to the Tavern.

I look at this scene before then gasp and go tearing down the hill to the field screaming ANGEL STOP STOP RIGHT NOW BEFORE YOU DECAPITATE YOURSELF,, 

I could see her swinging the Mace counter clockwise and not cloak wise but up an down NOT around over the head as it is to be.

CRAPONACRACKER WOMAN YOU TRYING TO BEHEAD YOURSELF??? AND WHAT THE HELL YOU LAUGHING AT PUP?

IS THAT HOW I TAUGHT YOU TO USE A MACE??

And what is hell is that called slapping your sword broadside on bare leg?

Lord love a hairy chicken bare legs really??

I look down and had a flipping fit

Angel what in hell do you have on your feet with a now bloody toe were a spike nicked you,,do you mot own a pair of boots??? or shoes even?

I glare at Pup later you and I right now Opel please return to the Tea Room you will get your chance to use those and not in the kitchen,,, she mummbles in Creole as she leaves.

You two follow me NOW.

We get to the Sleeping Blacksmith's still sleeping until I bellow like a Bull Mose and wakes him up.

Get to work Rip Van Winkle make A light weight but strong Helmet for this dust Bunnie and make sre you put the cheek gaurdes on.

His arms fly hammer fly"s fire and sparks fly and in less time you can say craonacracker the Helmet is done

It is a work of art right down to Our Dragon Trade mark.

Try it on ,,, Angel slips it on and say wow fits like a glove,,

I look at her now we have to fix your hair as I draw my Sai to loop it off to the shoulders ..

They both scream NO CAP NOT HER HAIR I AM SURE WE CAN FIX IT UNDER THE HELMET.

Wait lets go see Charlie she might have an idea well I hope she does if not it will go from waist length to shoulder length.

We head back to The Tea Room leaving ole sleepy head sawing logs/
