As I am leaving to go and read my book I am distracted by a rattling of plates and cutlery in the middle of the buffet table.
Slowly I turn, raise my book as a weapon and stop dumbfounded, mouth agape. There in the middle of the buffet, thankfully just to the left of the Bain Marie, is an ethereal figure, clad in what I can only imagine to be the latest creation from that great Haute Couture establishment, The House of Schpadoinkle. It was a truly amazing fashion statement, the like of which I have never ever seen before.
"J.J.J. Jenifer", I stutter, "Wh, Where on earth or not on earth, did you come from"
I stand there like a dummy, which is odd because I have seen a ghost before, my father, but he was dressed in corduroy gardening trousers, a flannelette shirt and his golfing cap, which was a surprise because the last time I had seen him at 3:00 in the morning, he was on the floor, in his pyjamas, beside the bed with the ambulance men working on him. As I passed the bedroom door in my mother's wake, I could tell by the colour of his face they they would have to call it soon.
I waited for Jenifer, who was standing there among the remains of the buffet, with a startled expression on her face, to speak.
Pixiu landed in the center of the nexus. Radiating out were ten threads, each leading to a portal. Nine of the portals glowed, the tenth was black. That was the portal of the void through which Mistress Breeze had passed. Malevolence oozed through this portal into two others, the one from which he just emerged and a second portal. He went to the second portal. He could sense evil there as well, not as strong as through the tenth portal, but there. The other seven portals were sealed.
Pixiu looked back at the dark portal. It should be sealed, but he had not sensed his mistresses’ death. She was wearing the Goddess’ protection when she went through, she still maybe safe. But as long as the portal remained open the evil that was Murk’s would flow out into the other realms. There was also Sebastien to consider. He was needed where he was. Pixiu always feared that Sebastien would come back to the nexus.
The mythology in the realm Sebastien resided was not Pixiu’s mythology. However, there are counterparts. So as he requested of the Jade Emperor and the Dragon God for assistance, Pixiu was answered by Zeus.
“She will be safe.” Pixiu watched and saw the tenth portal begin to glow as the others. The portal then sealed and a snow globe appeared in front of it. The snow globe disappeared. “Hypnos has been sent to Sebastien. He will recover.”
Two portals remained open. He could sense Mistresses Katt, Roo and Angel through the one he stood before. They needed protection.
Suddenly a presence passed through the portal. The presence went through him and then through the other portal. His portal.
Pixiu knew two things. The presence was female and not evil.
OMG! I am quite out of breath after climbing the 922 Phoenician steps up to Anacapri to visit the WiseOwl travel agency. They have good news ! They have booked passage for me and my faithfulls and our cargo on HMGS ENDEAVOUR ,a.k.a Her Majesty’s Ghost Ship)
which will sail on July 2nd, coinciding with Delphi’s National Day of Rest.
I hope that you and your faithfuls enjoy a nice relaxing sea voyage. The Endeavour looks to have many places for you all to have a good view of the seascape as you travel, plenty of room for hammocks and deck chairs,
Do your friends have a liking for deck tennis and shuffleboard? I have heard that they are popular past times on board.
Fair sailing to you and your pals.
Thank you y dear friend! But I must tell you that while I waswaiting for the Agent to carefully write our manifest into his ledgers, I swithched on my TVPrompter and you wont believe what I saw!
There, right there, in the middle of your Tearoom!
Is that Ame?and Sebastian? No wonder he is tired all day! I have the impression that Human ressources is not in good hands.
It is high time to get those ghostly apparitions, if that is what I saw, under someone's supervision.
Surely alcohol must be the cause for such carrying on!
I must send Axelrod to get a case or two of Limoncello for Cindykat and Crystal, they seem to be very partial to the stuff. I used to think it was some kind addition to bathwater.
oh so much to think of before we sail! I do not know what presents to bring for the ghosts, veils? Or chilly huffs and puffs? That people could feel when they pass by?
much to think, little time!
I wake the next morning but not in my bed. Instead I am surrounded by dogs. One for a pillow, one on my feet, one across my legs, Buddy on one side another oh the left. As I gently untangle myself from this living blanket, I find flower petals all over. That is when I remember why I slept with the dogs. They were just too fun to give up watching; I even caught a few flowers myself. While there I checked on the food and they had plenty; there was still running water to drink.
I headed back to the tea room with Buddy following. When we go there I headed to the kitchen but Buddy didn’t. Instead, something caught his attention that I couldn’t see. Must have been a ghost, animals can see them even when we can’t. “Come on, Buddy, lets go,” I called. He gave a yip then followed. I saw him eat while I checked things so I made myself a light breakfast then got started on breakfast for the others.
Bacon, sausage, Blueberry muffins, toast and eggs to order, coffee, tea, juice and cut fresh fruit. Butter, honey and preserves of different fruit flavors for condiments. I hope I didn’t over do it again.
It seems you are really spoiling them rotten! are you sure that we can afford all that every day?
Remember we will have to make hay for the winter!
As to your dancing on the table I do not find it appropriate!
That was not me dancing on the tables, it must have been one of the villagers. I was out last night and I have no idea what went on. Hope you are enjoying your trip. I can’t wait to see what you bring back. As for spoiling them, I like to spoil them. Besides, soon it will be leftovers for all.
