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

I am in trouble!

I now begin to remember!

I was just returning to the Special Room with important news when I was the subject of an unprovoked attack by our large beefy cook wielding a skillet that landed on my head.

Then the enforced peacefulness of oblivion.

Until now.

Does nothing change in my life?

My broom is utterly useless in an emergency and will only defend itself.

But who could have had such a devastating current effect whilst I was “elsewhere”

Roo? But she would not have been so profligate with our dwindling resources.

That leaves Jen, who must have found me and given me a special welcome with lashings of dynamite.

Well two can play at that game!

I contact Credit Card Central and say that I am Cap’n Randy and that I have mislaid my Credit Card.

Then I contact Kayley to say that Jen is out of cash so no more fripperies.

Whatever she is currently wearing will have to do. There are some plastic bin liners at the bottom of my precarious cot.

Speech? I can now speak through parched lips, so I shout: “You female harridans. Just look at what you have done to me between the two of you!

HELP!”

It is then that I have the ability to look down and see the tattered fragments of my huggie jacket barely covering the essentials of my masculinity (or what is left of them after such pyrotechnic shocks to my poor body!)

I now have feet on ‘terra firma’ and able to skirt the large hole in the floorboards in the Tea Room.

Charlie, as practically minded as ever, hands me a coverall so I can be seen in company again.

I am surrounded by small workmen scurrying around me and patching the holes so recently developed. It is remarkable how efficient they are, especially when untold wealth in the form of diamonds as well as decent food is put before them.

The floor is whole and safe once more and the central table restored to it rightful position with our individualised chairs around it. The antimacassar on Angel’s is a bit skew-whiff but that is normal for her. There is however a vacant chair – the one belonging to my nemesis!

Has she chickened out and refuses to own up to our demise?

No – she would brazen it out and convince everyone that it was my fault for being missing in the first place.

So where can she be?

Anyway, I need to be brought up to date with the recent deeds or misdeeds of the others while I have been  elsewhere.

It is then that in the corner of the Tea Room that I notice several small bundles of brown fur, shaking and shivering.

Charlie does not seem to be too concerned so I just give them a cursory glance.

They are rabbits! And I notice one in particular. Peculiarly this one has a floppy ear complete with a groove in it!

HOPPY!???

Rabbit PLUS dynamite? It cannot be.

But when I call out its name there is no recognition.

Stupid me – it is too young. But when I called out, its eyes lit up with the same manic expression that Hoppy used to have, especially when on a mission for Jen.

Son? Grandson? Even great grandson of Hoppy?  It could well be. And if so its genes will tell me where that shap**** fashionista is at this moment. I do so want a word with her!

I sigh.

"Well, there's that jail break plot line ruined."

I kick Captain Randy in the nuts, grab a case of beer and head back to the Vikings.

From the few off-the-cuff remarks, smirks and grins by the diminutive builders I gather that our partner Jen has caused them to pile new heaps of diamonds and gold from the Capn’s coffers because of her explosive predilection with dynamite.

What is more worrying is that she has completely depleted our stock of the stuff and we are all now virtually defenceless if attacked by anything bigger than Opel’s spoon!

It is all very well to close off all the tunnels, but that does not stop an attack on the surface and my intelligence gathering showed me the vast extent of our foes that have already flowed through the portals.

My “inner ear” now tells me that Jen has set off in a huff for Viking lands with a largish quantity of XXX Ale in tow.

Now I may be a bit naïve but even I would not care to be a young(ish) maiden bedecked in Kayley’s latest finery and in charge of quantities of ale when traversing that bleak landscape.

For a start she will get frostbite and secondly the ale may freeze and explode, which is not the sort of bang that she will enjoy. Also I am sure she will be the unwelcome recipient of somewhat lusty attentions of large horned and bearded ruffians wielding axes!

But how to defend her?

I dare not leave the confines of the Tea Room now that I have only just returned or our dear Cap’n will be apoplectic yet once again.

From the air she will be almost invisible to our friendly dragons to pluck out of this frozen landscape.

I do not know the route she has taken, nor can I find Charlie in order to borrow a tracker dog.

Ah yes! Of course.

We have the rabbits.

I scuttle into the newly restored kitchen and scrounge a few large carrots before returning with my vegetarian prizes to the brown bundles of fur in the corner of the Tea Room.

I fix a note (with a pencil attached) to the rabbit who I think may be the offspring to Hoppy.

My crow can do inter species conversations, so I tell it to follow and find Jen.

Then the rabbit willgive her the note, and I await a reply before taking any further action

The rabbit understands me and hops off down the hill!

I settle down to a freshly brewed cup of hong cha and one of the kitchen’s famous meat pies, all steaming and hot from the oven. The smell is almost overpowering but I contain myself and only take a small bite. I do not want to burn my mouth through over eagerness!

I am just biting into the tender crisp crust to savour the contained meat juices when I get a message from my pet crow.

“Your fashionista friend is being followed and so is your rabbit

“What shall I do? Attack a very bedraggled male hot footing it below or pluck the rabbit from the path?”

The picture in my mind’s eye shows me that it is the foe who is called Tarquin who is following and obviously he still wants revenge and pecuniary reward by imprisoning my unruly partner.

I shudder to think what will happen if Jen decides that she is thirsty!

I reflect on how another contact with those two could end up and smile!

“Do nothing at the moment, but keep me informed”

Something is afoot.

This is NOT Tarquin.

He would never refer to any woman as a "wench", as that is a derogatory term for any female.  He would not even presume that I choose to identify as female!

And Tarquin has excellent oral hygiene.

The cuffs around my wrist are not regulation, and "Tarquin" has not informed me of any of my civil rights, while lecturing me on those that have none.

And where the hell am I?

I could see the friendly, welcoming waves of my Viking friends - even the Berserker, who has always been difficult to strike up a conversation with. 

And then they were gone.  Or I was.  Now I am by a lake being arrested by someone claiming to be Castle Security.

I sigh "Guess I'm off to jail and not getting out of this one".  I need to buy myself time to figure this out.  And fighting will not bring me answers.

Overhead I see Frosty flying away.

What has that IDJIT done?!  He sends me off to blow stuff up at a moments notice, disregarding me when I have no use, and sabotages any attempt I make to carve out a plot for myself.

And now he has thrown me into an unknown place, with an unknown assailant with terrible breath and a motive completely ulterior to law and order.

"CAP! YOU ARE DEAD MEAT AND-"

Right before I lose consciousness a thought runs through my mind.

What happened to the real Tarquin?

In my mind’s eye I am aware of an urgent conversation going on between my two pets.

My beautiful owl is practically incohent with its “coos” and “clicks” while even the crow seems to be squawking in a very un-crow like fashion.

Eventually matters calm down and the crow opens up to me.

“We have lost her!”

“Who is ‘her’?” I ask

“Your bauble bedecked friend

“One minute she was careering on a somewhat irregular manner down to the Vikings and the next moment: POOF! She was gone.

“The rabbit  tracking her has just disappeared down the nearest rabbit hole and the pursuer you call Tarquin has just come up over the rise huffing and puffing.

“He is now jumping up and down incoherent with rage, calling on all his gods to help him find her again!”

Something is afoot!
