Angel looks at me as though I had just god mad!
She hisses: "Don't you remember that walls have ears?
"How do you propose to get there if we are attacked as soon as we leave the Tea Room?"
I smile and reply:
"I have a cunning plan!"
The groans and sighs from my partners are very audible and somewhat hurtful to my ears!

"The old map that Mr Seeker left with us shows that our beloved moat gets its water supply not from a spring but from an underground river!
"This comes out at the harbor on the far side of that peninsula housing the lighthouse where just across the water is Atlantis.
"I realize that we have a large menagerie of pets of various shapes and sizes, that we must bring with us.
"But if Noah could survive the Flood then we can get them across to the Elephant gates if we have a large enough boat!"

Cries of disbelief and derision greet my cunning plan!

Each of them jostle with one another to tell me that I need my huggie jacket on right now and sedated with pink pills!

Finally Angel manages to get to the top of the disbelieving heap!
"Where are you going to find such a boat?"

This time I take her paper and pencil and write:
Pirate Pete will sail his boat into the moat where we can load all the animals and ourselves and we sail under darkness across the harbor under the light from the lighthouse
When we disembark I need a fog spell to hide us from view. We can borrow a few compasses from the HOS Repository to guide us on our way in order to get to the Atlantean Gates. The ravens will guide us from there

I continue:
"But you have to keep those manky pets of yours in order so they do not fight or eat each other.
"And do not to let Dumbo (or whatever its name is) sit on one side of the ship!
"We already know the day and time for emigrating so lets get planning and find me the right spell!"

VERY GOOD SEBASTIEN,  I WAS SO WORRIED ABOUT THEM.  IT WOULD BE AWFUL TO BE STUCK HERE LIKE STATUES.

AND THANK YOU FOR MY BAG.  I LOOKED THROUGH IT.  THERE WAS ALL THE WOOL AND YARN. MY NEEDLES.  ALSO HE HAD TUCKED MY LAPTOP AND NOTEBOOK AND PENCILS IN.

SO THOUGHTFUL OF HIM.   

HIS IDEA TO FIND THE ELVES MAY WORK.  I OPENED MY AMULET TO THE PET ENCLOSURE. CALLED TO NIX AND NOSE.

THEY CAME AT ONCE.

NIX TO YOU THINK YOU AND NOSE CAN FIND MY ELVES.  YOU REMEMBER FINN AND HIS FRIENDS.

NOSE SEE THESE BALLS OF YARN.  THEY MADE THEM.  CAN YOU SCENT THEM FROM THE YARN.

NOSE NODDED. HIS NOSE DEEP IN THE BALLS OF YARN.  NIX KNOWS WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE.  SO IF YOU FIND THEM GIVE THEM THIS.  I TUCKED A PIECE OF PAPER UNDER NIX'S BOW TIE.  I DID NOT KNOW IF THE ELVES COULD READ IT BUT I HAD TO TRY.  I ALSO PUT BITS OF YARN IN IT.

THERE WAS A SMALL BADLY DRAWN PICTURE OF A LADY KNITTING.  AND A PLATE OF COOKIES WITH 5 THIMBLES SITTING BESIDE IT TURNED UP LIKE CUPS.

I DO HOPE IT WORKS.  IF FINN DOES COME WILL THE OTHERS.  I MUST KNOW THEY ARE SAFE.

THEY AND ALL THEIR KIND.

I LOOKED AT ANNALIESE,  YOU KNOW SOMETHING DON'T YOU.   DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE LISTENING DEVICES THEY USE TO SPY ON US AND THE INMATES  LOOK LIKE?   IF SO LOOK IN THAT BOX BY THE DOOR AND SEE IF THERE ARE ANY OF THEM.    SHE MOVED TO THE BOX RUMMAGED A BIT AND CAME BACK WITH SOME SMALL ROUND METAL OBJECTS WITH WIRES HANGING FROM THEM.  HANDED THEM TO ME.  HER SMILE GO EVEN BIGGER.  

ANNALIESE THIS IS GREAT.  ARE THERE ANY MORE IN THE TEA ROOM OR KITCHEN. SHE DISAPPEARED THEN REAPPEARED.  NO!  

I WALKED TO WHERE PLAYING THE GAME WAS AND DROPPED THE OBJECTS IN FRONT OF HIM.

WHEN HE WAS FINISHED TALKING I GOT HIS ATTENTION.  POINTED AT THE OBJECTS. AND SAID.

THEY CAN NO LONGER HERE WHAT IS SAID HERE.  THE GNOME BUILDERS FOUND THESE WHEN THEY PUT IN THE NEW  COFFEE AND TEA BAR.  

HE LOOKED STUNNED.   

AND HIS NAME IS NOT DUMBO YOU MORON IT IS BEAU.  HE IS A PYGMY ELEPHANT.   I WILL MAKE SURE HE IS ON ONE SIDE OF THE BOAT AND BABY IS ON THE OTHER SHE IS A PYGMY MAMMOTH.

THAT WILL BALANCE THE BOAT.  NOW WHERE ARE WE TO PUT THE REST OF THE PETS. ON THE DECK OR THE HOLD.  THE PONY AND GRIFFIN WILL BE ON DECK ONE WITH BEAU ONE WITH BABY.

AND EGOR IS VERY ATTACHED TO BABY WILL BE WITH HER.  JUST STAY AWAY FROM BABY AND EGOR WILL NOT ACT OUT.  

THE PETS, CATS AND DOGS ARE FRIENDS.  THEY DO NOT FIGHT OR TRY TO EAT EACH OTHER.

JUST BE ADVISED THAT THERE WILL ALSO BE A PRIDE OF LIONS GOING WITH US.  WELL BEHAVED LIONS.  AND GREAT HELPERS.  THEY HAVE BEEN DOING PATROLS WHILE YOU WERE GONE.  

NOW IF YOU NEED A GOOD DISTRACTION WHILE WE LEAVE JUST SAY SO.  I AM SURE ANNALIESE WOULD BE GLAD TO SWIFTLY GO THROUGH THE CASTLE AND DISABLE ALL THE LISTENING DEVICES.   

SHE GRINNED.  MORE FUN.  I LOOKED AT HER.  NOT JUST DISABLE THEM BUT MAYBE CAUSE THEM TO BLOW UP.   I KNOW SHE LOVES TO CAUSE AS MUCH TROUBLE AS POSSIBLE.  CAN SHE BLOW UP ANY ROBOT GUARDS SHE FINDS.

NOW SHE WAS ALMOST JUMPING FOR JOY.   BUT ANNALIESE YOU MUST BE BACK TO THE OTHERS BEFORE SEBASTIEN CLOSES THE PORTHOLE. OR YOU WILL HAVE TO GO INSIDE OF ONE OF THE ANIMALS.  

SO PTG WHAT NOW.  SOME PROBLEMS SOLVED.  OTHERS WILL COME UP.

I TURNED TO THE OTHERS AND SAID SHALL WE GO TO THE ENCLOSURE AND SEE TO OUR PETS.  WE NEED TO GET THEM READY FOR THE MOVE.

WITH THAT I LEFT THE TEA ROOM.

 I am normally a gentle soul and love things to be quiet and orderly.

So I do understand PTG's wish for order, I really do.

But "manky?"

Sorry PTG, but this little southern belle knows what that word implies.

And, as a person who is being protected by her own "feline" nation, I am a little irked.

But again I am a gentle soul and love order. And at this moment, we need to know who are the present inmates of the Special Room and where they are without notifying the wrong people. A impromptu census so to speak.

So I wrote down my concern and attached the note to a feline messenger to deliver to PTG.

Big Kitty is happy to oblige  .

(Have I been around Annaleise too long?) 

I am not worried about our animal companions. Nor am I worried about the ghost players.

For Sebastien told me that the portal he found was at Delphi, and that was where he was leading the ghosts at this very moment.

And being who and what he was, he would make sure the animals arrived safely as well. 

So I went back to the Record Book and back to studying the history of the Special Room.

While keeping a surreptitious eye on Big Kitty's progress.

Only here would one have a second in command that needs his own second in command to keep him out of trouble.

YOU KNOW BREEZE ANNALIESE IS NOT SUCH A BAD INFLUNCE.   SHE KNOWS WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE CASTLE.  SHE CAN BE A VERY BIG HELP TO GET US OUT OF HERE AND TO OUR NEW HOME.  BUT SHE MUST GET THERE ALSO.

Everyone is running around make preparations for the move to Delphi.I don’t care about the danger I have things to do,so I use the Laundry Room window to make my escape.Luckily no-one sees me.

As I turn the corner of the Tea Room I bump into a group of people who are aimlessly wandering & muttering in low voices.I do not recognise them so I’m a little wary but I throw caution to the wind & ask who they are.I am blown away by the answer!!!
“We are mods & have been sent here to rest.We are all exhausted from the current turmoil”
I must admit they do look forlorn & dejected.

“ Well you all need huggie jackets so follow me & we’ll get you fitted up.There isn’t enough time to make you all designer jackets but you are welcome to pick from the few spares that I have”.
I can tell from the mumbling they are not happy. I ask what the problem is & am told they all have to be the same but different from all the other citizens.Hmmm...I’m beginning to think I should just walk away as time is precious,we all have a deadline to meet!!...But they are all part of our MC family & I have to do something.
I leave them on the bank by the kiddos & tell them to stay there until I return.

I get to the hospital wing & carefully make my way to the storeroom.In there I find a pile of pristine white huggie jackets.PTG would have a fit if he found out I was helping myself to them . Still it’s in a good cause so I take them.I take them to my hideaway where I find a feather.I sharpen it to make a quill & grab a bottle of Ink of Night.In my very best writing I print “MOD” on the back of each jacket & glue a bfg fish underneath.
I return to the bank & hand out the jackets.I don’t have time to linger so I leave them to choose a suitable size.


***Thank you all***

My pet raven flies into the kitchen cawing loudly, What's wrong? The farm has been destroyed by the chaos? OH NO!!! Marino and Janet made it out with a few cows and pigs and got home. Thank Goodness!!!

Okay, deep breath, at least they are safe. Not sure there would have been room for all the farm animals on the ship to tell the truth. Hopefully I can contact them again once we make it to Delphi and they can rejoin us. Gather the others and stay close. She caws again as she wings away.

Out in the dining room all is still chaos as everyone scrambles to prepare for the exodus.

I find Charlie, "The farm was destroyed but my friends managed to escape back to their home with some of the cows and pigs. If all goes well they'll join us when we are settled.  I'll have to forage in Delphi for those flying chicks and other food stuffs, but at least they're safe." She is relieved. I'll bet she was wondering how we would get all those critters on the boat too!

I deposit a tray of food on the counter. "Eat up everyone, No sense  wasting food and the perishables will keep best in your tummies anyway!" "Oh, and please don't forget we have to take sleepy Grim with us. I've heard so much about her from Mrs. Fletcher, I really want to meet her." I head back to the kitchen for more people and pet food.

Meanwhile .... Playingthegame's Godmother and the Genie are continuing to cajole and watch over Adrian to make sure he keeps his word about the time frame before he searches for Grim himself. 

It is totally exhausting work .....If one could hear her thoughts they would hear: 

"my arms are weary from wielding my wand in his direction. 

The pigeons have mostly gone from the flying boat. The Genie and I remain on the steps to Atlantis --- monitoring and watching the Dark Tower. (For while Adrian remains in the Temple of Justice, he is mentally preparing his destruction .... the steps behind the Iron Knight continue to crumble!) 

Oh, dear ...... I must remember to send my most faithful pigeon (for he is tired of being around the female pigeons who are driving him batty; he is ready for some real work again) .. send my most faithful pigeon to my Godson to tell him .... there was one of his friends who removed the wand from the Potion Shop and has tried to figure out how to make it work ..... I forget her name, but he will know .... anyway, the wand ONLY works in this world and from INSIDE the Potion Shop, which is soon to be destroyed. That is the reason she cannot figure out how to use it properly."
