THEN AN IDEA CAME TO ME,  I OPEN MY AMULET TO THE CAP.  " CAP I AM GOING TO CLOUD CITY TO THE POTION SHOP.   I WILL HAVE GRIFF TAKE ME.  HE CAN KEEP WATCH.   OF COURSE SUGAR AND SPICE WILL BE WITH ME.  I DOUBT ANYONE OR ANYTHING WILL BOTHER ME.  I CLOSED THE AMULET LEAVING IT OPEN TO CAP, THAT WAY IF ANYTHING WENT WRONG HE WOULD KNOW.

I GRABBED A SHEET OF WRITING PAPER AND A PEN AND INK.  AND STARTED A LIST OF WHAT I WOULD ORDER,  NOW IF THEY CAN MAKE EVERYTHING AND DELIVER IT TO ME BEFORE CHRISTMAS.  IT WILL BE A GREAT SURPRISE FOR ROO.  

HAVING MADE MY LIST I ASK SUGAR AND SPICE TO STEP INTO MY BAG, AND OFF WE WENT TOWARD THE TEA ROOM.

AS I NEARED I CALLED TO GRIFF,  I NEED YOU TO TAKE ME TO CLOUD CITY AND BACK.  ALSO TO BE MY LOOKOUT WHILE WE ARE THERE. 

DOWN HE CAME DOWN FROM THE ROOF AND LANDED SOFTLY, I CLIMBED ON HIS BACK, GRABBED HIS REIN AND SAID LET'S GO.  IN A FEW MOMENTS WE WERE AIRBORNE AND ON OUR WAY.  HE LANDED AT THE PIER, I DISMOUNTED AND THANKED HIM FOR THE RIDE.  OPENED MY BAG TO LET SUGAR AND SPICE OUT, WALKED DOWN THE STREET.  EVERYONE STARED AND STEPPED BACK AS WE PASSED.   I CHUCKLED,  AND SPOKE TO THE CATS.  KEEP A SHARP EYE AND EAR OUT FOR TROUBLE.   AS WE APPROACHED THE POTION SHOP THOSE WHO WERE NEAR STEPPED BACK AND LET ME THROUGH.  THEN THEY DISAPPEARED TO PARTS UNKNOWN. 

I STEPPED UP TO THE COUNTER AND TOLD THE ALCHEMIST WHAT I WANTED AND I NEEDED NO LATER THEN NOON 3 DAYS FROM NOW.   HE STARTED TO SAY NO,  BUT I HEARD HIM THINK IF I TELL HER I CAN 'T I HAVE OTHER ORDERS TO FILL BUT I WILL SET THEM ASIDE FOR A LARGE AMOUNT OF GOLD.  I CAN MAKE A BIG PROFIT.   I CHUCKLED IS THAT SO,  I ASKED HIM HOW MUCH.  THE PRICE HE QUOTED WAS AN OUTRAGE.   HE WAS THINKING HE COULD MAKE EVEN MORE FROM THIS HAYSEED.  I DREW MYSELF UP TO MY INTIRE 4' 9" AND PLACED ONE HAND ON EACH OF THE CATS THEY HAD ALSO HEARD HIS THOUGHT.  THEY GREW AT LEAST 6" HIGHER.   HE LOOKED SURPRISED.  AGAIN I ASKED  HOW MUCH FOR THE ITEMS ON THE LIST.  HE SPUTTERED AND BLURTED OUT A PRICE I COULD LIVE WITH.   WHAT AM I DOING HE THOUGHT I WILL ONLY BREAK EVEN NOW.   AH,  BUT THE TIME LIMIT  I WILL GET HER ON THAT.

THEN HE TOLD ME HE COULD NOT HAVE EVERYTHING ON THE LIST READY IN 3 DAYS TIME.  HE HAD OTHER ORDERS TO FILL.  THIS I KNEW WAS SORT OF TRUE.  HE HAD ONLY THREE OTHER ORDERS AND 2 OF THEM WERE DONE.  FOR ANOTHER 800 COIN I CAN SET THEM ASIDE AND FILL YOUR ORDER   I COCKED MY HEAD A LITTLE AND STARED AT HIM. I SCRATCHED EACH CAT BEHIND THE EAR AND THOUGHT  MUCH BIGGER.   WITH THAT THOUGHT THEY GREW NOT JUST A FEW INCHES THEY WERE NOW AS TALL AS I WAS.  STARING AT HIM AND IGNORING WHAT HE HAD SAID I CONTINUED,   THE PACKAGE IS TO BE DELIVERED TO THE TEA ROOM OUTSIDE OF THE CASTLE.  

I COULD SEE HE WAS HAVING A HARD TIME.  HIS BROW WAS SHINNY WITH SWEAT AND HIS HANDS TREMBLED SLIGHTLY.   I CONTINUED IF THEY ARE THERE QUICKLY, THERE WILL BE A BONUS FOR YOU. 

HE TOOK THE LIST AND LOOKED AT IT.  NODDING EVERY NOW AND AGAIN.  LOOKING AROUND HIS SHOP THEN TURNED BACK AND SAID OK, NOW FOR THE GOLD.  I SET MY BAG DOWN REACHED IN PULLED OUT A SACK OF COIN,  HE STOOD WIDE EYED AS I COUNTED OUT EXACTLY HALF OF THE AGREED PRICE.  THEN I TOLD HIM THE OTHER HALF WILL BE IN YOUR HAND WITHIN MOMENTS OF THE PACKAGE BEING DELIVERED AND IT IS CHECKED THAT IT IS COMPLETE.  HE HAD BEEN THINKING TO GET THE COIN THEN DO THE LIST AT HIS LEISURE.  NOW IF HE WANTED THE REST OF THE COIN AND THE BONUS I HAD MENTIONED HE WOULD DO THE LIST AS QUICKLY HAS HE COULD.  

HE STARTED TO PUT UP AND ARGUMENT BUT ONE LOOK AT SUGAR AND SPICE HE CHANGED HIS MIND.  HE SEEMED RESIGNED THAT THE HAYSEED HAD OUTWITTED HIM. 

THEN HE ASKED ME IF I WAS A WITCH OR A MAG OR SOME OTHER MAGIC WIELDING PERSON.  NOT REALLY I SAID WITH A SMILE.  BUT CROSS ME AND YOU WILL WISH EVERY SECOND OF WHAT WILL BE LEFT OF YOUR LIFE YOU HAD NOT.

OH! AND BY THE WAY DO NOT CALL THE GUARDS AS YOU ARE THINKING OF DOING,  OR YOU AND THEY WILL NOT LIVE TO REGRET IT.  DO I MAKE MYSELF CLEAR!   I STOOD WITH ONE ARM OVER EACH CAT SCRATCHING UNDER THEIR CHIN.  

HE WAS STILL WANDERING WHAT TYPE OF MAGIC PRACTITIONER I WAS THEN HE SHRUGGED AND TURNED TO START FILLING MY ORDER.   IF THE LABELS ARE NOT IN THE  LANGUAGE I SPECIFIED.   WELL YOU KNOW THE RESULT THAT WILL COME YOUR WAY.  

HE STARED AT ME AS I TURNED AND STARTED BACK DOWN THE STREET.  I STOPPED, OPENED MY BAG, CALLED TO GRIFF I WAS READY TO GO AND HAD THE CATS STEP IN.   

GRIFF LANDED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET, I MOUNTED, SETTLED MYSELF.  TOLD HIM TO GO HOME.  MY BUSINESS WAS DONE.

HE TOOK OFF SCRATTERING DUST BUT THERE WAS NO ONE ON THE STREET TO WITNESS IT EXCEPT OLD MAGUS.  I LOOKED AT HIM AND TELLING HIM FORGET YOU HAVE EVER SEEN US.  WE MAY NEVER COME HERE AGAIN. 

HE NODDED AND WENT BACK TO HIS CRYSTAL BALL.  MUTTERING FORGET, FORGET AS HE STARED INTO SWIRLING  DEEP IN THE BALL.

GRIFF ROSE HIGHER, AND HIGHER.  SOON JUST A SPECK HE SEEMED TO BE HEADING FOR THE DARK TOWER,  HE PASSED IT THEN TURNED AND HEADED FOR THE TOWN, THEN  THE TEA ROOM. 

AGAIN I THANKED HIM AS I DISMOUNTED,  HE LIFTED TO THE TEA ROOM ROOF.

I OPEN MY BAG LETTING SUGAR AND SPICE OUT.  THEY HAD A SMUG LOOK ON THEIR FACES.  THAT WAS FUN THEY PURRED.   I OPENED MY AMULET TO THE CAP.   I HAVE RETURNED.  

MY BUSINESS IN CLOUD CITY IS DONE.  BUT BE ON THE LOOK OUT FOR A GOOD SIZED PACKAGE TO BE DELIVERED BEFORE CHRISTMAS AND DO NOT OPEN IT OR TOUCH IT.  THE CATS MUST CHECK IT FIRST.

THEN I WENT TO THE TEA ROOM. I COULD USE A CUP OF COFFEE AND A SNACK.

Hearing Charlie saying she was of to Cloud City on Griff and that Sugar and Spice would be with her I said okay I know you will be safe and kept my Amulet opened just in case.

I looked over my shoulder and past Pup and Penny to see how Angel was doing.

I heard Penny yell at Angel COME ON YOU BAGS OF BONES GET THOSE FEET MOVING LIFT THOSE KNEES AND STOP SWINGING THOSE ARMS LIKE SPAGHETTI.

I JOINED IN COME ON NEWBIE ONLY 4 MORE MILES TO GO,, HUP HUP HUP

Pup thought she would try and out do de ole Cap and sprinted out in front of me ,,, I laughed oh you think so do ya and I went into half over drive and left her in my dust.

I reached the 5 mile mark and started my warm down waiting for the others lol

Pup came up a tad breathless and then 15 minutes later Penny half running more like walking beside Angel who looked like she was about to pass out.

Flop down she went by the tree and tried to breath and talk at the sane time.

Well well are you not a sight next time tie your hair back cause right now I do not see your face or is that the back of your head?

I heard a muffled GO TO HELL ,,, WATCH THAT MOUTH NEWBIE REMEMBER YOU ASKED FOR THIS  AND RIGHT NOW YOU WOULD BE AN OGRE SNACK ,

Okay lets get back ,,, Angel screamed have you lost your mind??? I still can not feel my legs.

UP NOW ,,, I watched her pull herself by the help of Penny's pant leg.

Okay lets go we will walk untill she gets her legs back then a fast walk then splint the last mile.

I hear Charlie call and say she is back ,,Okay we are on training  maneuvers with Angel and will join you shortly .

I call Opel ,,, Cap here could you fix Angel a hot bath with some of your sore muscle salts she is going to need it and a hot Tea.

Penny and Pup are with me so we could use a hot drink and a snack also.

Oh and Opel don't forget the water and salt thank you sweet cakes see you in a few.

**** For those who do not know ***** after a strenuous work out = pour some salt in your hand ,,, lick it then wash it down with the water,,, you will not get muscle cramps or spasms.

Geez!  What did I get myself into here?!  We just finished that 5 miles, and we're heading back again NOW??!!  Oh, my sore muscles!!  What Cap doesn't know is I just came back from another little trip, doing a ton of walking, to try to give my body a little jump start before real training started.  And, all I got for it is EXTRA SORE muscles.

Cap's little tidbit would have been SO helpful to know BEFORE I started this venture!!  ***SIGH***

Ah well,  guess I'll have to settle for the hot bath and coffee please, Opel......never acquired a taste for tea! stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes

MAN IT WAS QUIET IN THE TEA ROOM,  WHERE WAS EVERYONE,  NOT EVEN PTG HAD RETURNED.   MAYBE HE IS SULKING HAVING TO BATH IN THE FREEZING MOAT.  

WELL I AM GOING TO ENJOY THE QUIET. I SAT DRINKING MY COFFEE AND THE WONDERFUL SCONES,  I HAVE NEVER GO USED TO SOME OF THE STUFF THEY PUT ON THEM BUT LEMON CURD AS THEY CALL IT NOT BAD.   

JUST THEN THE DOOR OPENED IN CAME CAP FOLLOWED BY PENNY, PUP AND LASTLY ANGEL.   WHAT THE HECK HAS SHE BEEN DOING,  SHE LOOKED LIKE A POOR HORSE WHO HAD BEEN ROAD HARD AND PUT AWAY WET.

HAIR LIMP AND WET, CLOTHES A SWEATY MESS.  AND BREATHING LIKE EACH BREATH WAS HER LAST.  SHE COULD HARDLY STAND LET ALONE WALK.

SUGAR GO TO HER AND HELP HER TO A CHAIR.  WHICH SHE DID.  ANGEL PRACTICALLY LAYING ON HER.  AT LAST SHE WAS SEATED.  OPAL AND KATT APPEARED WITH DRINK AND SNACKS.  

ANGEL FELL ON THE WATER LIKE THAT WAS ALL THERE WAS IN THE WORLD.  ONE GLASS THEN SHE STARTED TO POUR ANOTHER.   CAP STOPPED HER.  SLOWLY OR YOU WILL BE SICK.  SHE LAID BACK IN HER CHAIR AND SLIPPED DOWN TILL HER HEAD RESTED AGAINST THE TOP. AND STARTED TO RELAX.  

THEN CAP STARTED SOME SORT OF RITUAL OR SOMETHING WITH SALT AND THE WATER. 

I MADE A HASTY RETREAT TO THE KITCHEN WITH MY CUP AND PLATE.  SAT THEM IN THE SINK. WHICH WASHED AND RINSED THEM. 

SLIPPED OUT OF MY SLIPPERS TUGGED ON MY BOOTS TOLD OPAL AND KATT THANKS FOR THE COFFEE AND SCONES ,  I AM GOING TO THE BARN.   AND SANITY OF SOME SORT.

Had to grab the water from Angel she was drowsing herself and the table lol

I thanked Sugar for helping Angel find her seat.

I then showed her how to do the salt and water to stop any charlie horses from forming after her run.

I poured a small pile in the middle of her hand and said okay take it and then wash it down,,,, good girl lol

Well there goes Charlie back to the critters ,,,, she can be around time 24/7 and loves it heart of gold I tell you.

Opel can you help Angel up to her room and could you check she does not pass out in the tub?

Angel // I shake her a bit and her head pops up what what what no more I can not take another step you slave driver .

I laugh and say no more running for today you did good and tomorrow you will do better she screams and runs to her room lol knew that would get her moving.

Okay lets go freshen up for supper see you back here later and we can plan for tomorrows training.

I trudge back up to the Tea Room after scrubbing myself all over with soap and water to get the odour of hemlock off my body.

As I reach the door I detect a movement in the undergrowth and a scruffy litlle dog comes up to me sniffing away.

I look at him; he looks at me and gives a loud ACHOOO!!!

I swear he is laughing as he shakes his head and points me downwards back to the moat!

CURSES!!

The moat water is now very soupy and VERY cold as I attempt to get even cleaner

Eventually I crawl back up to the Tea Room door clutching my soggy wet towel  and fall on the canine.

At this moment of time I am prepared to throttle it , whether Charlie can hear my thoughts or not on the matter!

Then the Tea Room door  opens for me to  pass though shivering with cold

But before I could enter I am enveloped in a pristine white huggie jacket and warm cloak .

I plonk myself down on the nearest chair and take a large swig of freshly prepared hong cha!

The next mouthful is savored slowly and my sensitive taste buds inform me that all is not as it should be!

It has a strange - not taste - but odour!

Smell?

But it cannot be the hemlock as I would never have been let back into the Room.

Sipping my brew slowly I rack my brains to discover the source.

Ah! Yes! It is Oil of Swallows!?

What on earth is happening to me as the overpowering smell gets nearer and nearer?

Angel enters the room looking like a faded Amazon!

She groans and sits next to me

I feel faint and move away from her before I pass out from the smell of this strong embrocation on her!

She seems to be blissfully unaware of the effect she is having on people!

People?

But it is only me that is affected. The others, human or animal, in the Room do not notice this pong!

In fact the Cap'n is holding a large tub of it in his hand and explaining that it will also soothe her aches and pains from the rigors of her training.

I quietly move away and sit outside to reflect on what has just happened

Is my sense of smell so sensitive that it can detect odors not noticed by the others?

Can this be used to our advantage as I am sure that none of our foes  smell sweet!

I must have a chat with the Cap'n

TROUBLE COMES BARRELING INTO THE BARN TO REPORT THAT PTG HAS PASSED THE STINK TEST AND IS NOW BACK IN THE TEA ROOM.   GOOD BOY AND GIVE HIM A TID BIT FOR HIS GOOD JOB.   NOW BACK ON PATROL,  CATCH AND BRING IN THE SOCKS, TREES, SNOWMEN.    IF YOU DO A GOOD JOB AND STAY OUT OF TROUBLE I WILL SEE THAT YOU GET A NICE MEATY BONE FOR YOUR SUPPER.   HE DANCES AROUND THEN SHOOTS OUT THE BARN DOOR.   

I SHAKE MY HEAD AND CHUCKLE,  HOPE THAT BOY GROWS UP SOON AND GETS SOME SENSE AND LEARNS TO STAY OUT OF TROUBLE. 

I GO BACK TO MAKING SURE EVERYONE HAS FOOD AND WATER FOR THE NIGHT.    I OPEN MY AMULET TO KATT AND OPAL,   THE ELVES AND I WILL BE IN FOR SUPPER,  AND DO YOU THINK YOU CAN FIND ENOUGH MEATY BONES FOR THE DOGS THEY HAVE ALL BEEN WORKING HARD TO KEEP THE FLYING OBJECTS AWAY FROM THE TEA ROOM.  CAN YOU THINK OF SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR THE CATS THEY HAVE WORKED JUST AS HARD.   DO YOU HAVE ANY OF THOSE FISH LEFT THEY WERE EVERYWHERE FOR AWHILE.  I HAD THE CATS AND DOG GET ALL THE LIVE ONES THEY FOUND INTO THE MOAT FOR ELLIE AND BROOD.  I KNOW THE CATS FEASTED ON SOME OF THE OTHERS.
