ANNALIES WAS SO HAPPY,  AND WHEN ROO AND THE REST OF US AGREED THAT SHE COULD SHOW PTG JUST HOW WE FELT ABOUT HIS BROOM AND IT TREATMENT OF OUR FUR FRIENDS.  

I LAUGHED AT THE LOOK ON HIS FACE AS HE BECAME AIRBORNE.  AND THE AIRBORNE AGAIN TO BE DROPPED IN THE MOAT.  I WANTED TO GIVE ANNALIES A HIGH FIVE.  I HAVEN'T HAD THIS MUCH FUN SINCE I WAS A KID MAKING MUD TRAPS FOR UNSUSPECTING PLAYER OF HIDE AND SEEK.   YOU DID A HOLD FILL IT WITH WATER AND DIRT THEN COVER IT WITH LEAVES AND WHATEVER IS LYING AROUND.  YES WE CAUGHT SOME IN OUR TRAPS.  

I HOPE PTG THINKS MORE THAN ONCE ABOUT GETTING HIS BROOM TO GO AFTER OUR FUR FRIENDS.  

I HAVE EVERYTHING I BROUGHT WITH ME TO THE ROOMS IN MY CARPET BAG, TO BAD IT IS CAN'T HOLD MORE.  IF IT COULD I WOULD HAVE ASKED FINN AND HIS PEOPLE TO TRAVEL IN IT.  WITH LUCK THEY WILL MAKE IT TO DELPHI.   MAYBE SOME OF THE GOOD GNOMES WILL ALSO.  BUT THERE IS NOTHING I CAN DO.

BECKI'S BITS AND BOBS HAVE BEEN PACKED.  SHE HAS GONE WITH THE OTHER GHOSTS.

SEBASTIEN SAID THEY WERE SETTING UP ANNA'S LIBRARY SO SHE WILL BE HAPPY.

I AM NOT OF MUCH USE BUT I CAN KEEP THE FUR FRIENDS OCCUPIED AND OUT FROM UNDERFOOT.   WE HAVE PACKED WHAT WE WILL NEED IN THE ENCLOSURE. THE PETS THERE ARE READY FOR THE MOVE.  EGOR WANT TO COME TO THE TEA ROOM BUT I DECIDED IT IS BEST HE STAY WITH BABY.  HE AGREED BUT WAS NOT HAPPY ABOUT IT.  GEE, I WONDER CAN GHOSTS HAVE PETS?  HE AND ANNELIESE WOULD BE A GREAT PAIR.  

PTG HAS LET TO FIND ROO.  WHEN HE RETURNS HE IS SOMEWHAT WORSE FOR WEAR.   SCRATCHED, AND DIRTY.  ROO HAD COME BACK EARLIER VERY PLEASED WITH HERSELF.

I WONDER WHAT THOSE TWO HAVE BEEN UP TO.  WHATEVER IT WAS PTG LOST.

IT IS HARD TO HEAR WHAT HE IS THINKING WITH SO MANY IN THE ROOM. ALL BROADCASTING THOUGHTS,   OH, WELL.  PRECIOUS IS CLINGING TO MY NECK HE SEEM AFRAID.  SAM OH SWEET SAM SO CALM.  I FIND AN UNPACKED MUG AND GET SOME COFFEE. CAN'T FIND THE HONEY, PROBABLY ALREADY PACKED.  BLACK WILL DO. 

ASK IF I CAN HELP.  I CAN HELP JUST NOT LIFT ANYTHING HEAVY.

WE CONTINUE TO PACK THE TEA ROOM.  I CROSS TO THE BOX KATT HAD PUT BY THE DOOR.   BUT ANNALIESE IS THERE FIRST.  AND IT GOES SAILING INTO THE MOAT.  HOPE THERE WAS NOTHING IN IT ANYONE WILL MISS.

I drop into my seat at the corner tale of the Tea Room completely deflated.

After just having one of the worst few hours of my life being propelled by hidden forces through the air and dropped into the muddy waters of the  moat I return to find only laughter in my partners as they give me to understand as its owner to keep my broom in order.

I was only trying to restore a bit of order and sanity in this room with pets running around causing mayhem, but my reasons are ignored because of the methods that I used.

My broom once more takes me to my room in the hospital wing where I shower and change out of my fetid clothing. How those kids at the moat’s edge, who spend more than a month trading there, can stomach even the smell of it I will never understand?

Once more I return to the Tea Room and order my favorite brew. Unfortunately that particular tea caddy has been packed away and all that is on offer are the ubiquitous tea bags that serve up colored water.

Ah well! The liquid is hot and slakes my thirst.

Sitting there I do a head count. One of us is missing and that someone is Roo. Surely she cannot have slept through all this kerfuffle?

Where is she?

My broom quietly informs me that she is making heaps of dust bunnies as she snores in a little hollow by the Castle Gates.

Over I go to remonstrate with her about the urgency of us ALL being ready for the transfer to Delphi.

Only for her to threaten to stay behind in this Castle since Trina’s puppies can’t go with us!

But there is a trade-off and I take Trina and the mother wolf for a stroll while she creeps into her room and “borrows” the two puppies’  dog collars.

But their mother senses all is not well  She is determined to return to her pups, which would be a disaster as Roo is at this moment cuddling them. So once more I am led a merry dance through thicket and muddy paths as she tries to return to her place by Trina’s side.

I am just about exhausted when Roo emerges triumphant holding the two dog collars. I release the wolf hound back to her place with the puppies  and we return to the Tea Room

There, as if by magic a cup of hong cha is passed to me by Roo

But as I sit there I become aware of an unknown presence by my side that I cannot seem to get into focus.

Oh no! Not another dousing or some such prank.

But this time as he speaks the Room goes silent.

He informs me that something or someone has manged to get by Pirate Pete and put a hole in his boat, rendering it unseaworthy!

All eyes are on me!

It all started with a fir cone. . .

. . then escalated into a pillow fight.  And in to course of sixteen months and eighty-nine pages, the exploits of the denizens of the Special Room has been recorded in the Record Book in the Secret Library.  Here you will find pink pills, evil doctors, bardic duels, kittielephants, fashions from the House of Schpadoinkle, parallel universes, C*L*A* P*, questionable poetry, hundreds of major and minor explosions and a plethora of “cunning plans.”

I looked up from the laptop Sebastien has provided me.  It is done.

For over a week I have been transcribing the history of the Special Room from the Record Book while all around me packed their belongings.  My belongings have been packed and moved to Delphi.  Sebastien located empty rooms adjacent to the new Secret Library which has no discernible entrance.  He and the ghost players have set up a gaming area there, giving Anna back her library.  I now have my own quarters completed with a special area for cats.  There is where Sebastien moved the Mirror and Record Book for that universe, along with transcriptions from the Storybook and the Book of Evil. And it is there where Sebastien will take my laptop.

Sebastien appears and I hand him the laptop.  I then give Big Kitty one more belly rub and place her, Blackie and Chris into my carpetbag.  The other kittens and cats who have been guarding me (and who are not claimed as pets) jump into the bag as well.  It was decided that Sebastien will transport them to our new home.  Grammi G will take care of them until I arrive.tiger2cat

As for me, I will also be transported by Sebastien when the time comes.  I originally planned to join my other inmates, but then remembered a certain ferry ride I had taken to visit lighthouses in the Atlantic.   

Sebastien picks up the carpetbag and laptop looked into his mirror and disappears. He then returns.  There was one more thing we needed to do.

He unchained the Record Book from the table and we carried it outside.  Since it contained the complete history of the Special Room up to now, it had become a liability to our future safety.  He had already destroyed the Mirror in the Library to prevent unwanted passage. Now the Book needed to be destroyed as well.

We set the book down and Annaleise appeared with a bomb from the Armory.  As we ducked for cover she lit the fuse and

KABOOM! boom There was an explosion and a hole where the book once sat.  But instead of shrapnel flying through the air, there were . . .eggs? hatching_chick Hundreds of Easter eggs were flying everywhere.  And as the eggs rained down, Annaleise began to dance. dancer Sebastien and I ran back into the Tea Room before we were mobbed by players trying to complete their Castle Challenge.

FINN CAME IN FROM THE KITCHEN, THE LOOK ON HIS FACE TOLD ME THAT ALL WAS NOT WELL,   THEY HAD GONE TO MIRROR LAKE TO PETE'S BOAT ON TO FIND SOMEONE HAD MADE A HOLE IN IT.  NOW THEY WERE THERE AND NO WHERE ELSE TO GO.  I TOLD HIM TO BRING HIS PEOPLE TO THE TEA ROOM WE WOULD FIND ROOM FOR THEM IN THE ENCLOSURE OR THE CASTLE.  HE SAID THE ENCLOSURE WOULD DO AS LONG AND THE ANIMALS DID NOT THINK OF THEM AS FOOD OR PLAYTHINGS.  I OPENED MY AMULET AND CALLED TO NOSE AND NIX.  I AM SENDING SOME FRIENDS TO THE ENCLOSURE MAKE THE WELCOME.  THEN I SAID DO NOT TREAT THEM AS FOOD OR TOYS.  THEY ARE SMALL.  

I ASKED FINN IF HE HAD ANY IDEA WHERE THE GNOME BUILDERS HAD GONE.   HE SHOOK HIS HEAD.  

IT WAS WORTH A SHOT.  TO BAD BREEZE HAD SENT HE BAG TO DELPHI ALREADY.  THEY COULD HAVE GONE WITH BIG KITTY AND FRIENDS.

I WAS WISHING MY BAG WAS LIKE HERS.

URGENT!

I need information!

Location of hole; size of hole; place of hole (is above or below waterline)

Experienced boat-yard people available

Magical solutions

HELPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!

I have no idea where I am but I have encountered a beautiful unicorn in the Shining Split.

She informs me that pets, humans and furry creatures are in extreme danger and that the boat that they were depending on is slowly sinking cold_sweat

The unicorn quickly transports me to  Cloud City and wields her horn to release the Griffin.  The Griffin gracefully and thankfully flies to the Cloud City Customs Airship Tower.  The airship, speedily arrives to the Harbor Port.  The boat slowly sinks in the harbor.  Everyone is welcome on the airship, but where will we go?

While I await my partners brains getting into overdrive I begin to muse.

I am gob-smacked and at a total loss for thought word or deed at the moment!

Do I have a cunning plan?

I'm afraid not!

So to while away some spare minutes I recall a famous UK radio program that ran for many years

It was (and still is) called Desert Island Discs

Celebrities are interviewed and told they will be marooned on a desert island.

They are then asked to name 6(?) gramophone records (that shows you how old the program is!) together with one book (apart from the Bible [sorry folks we are a Christian nation officially] and Shakespeare.

SOoooooo.... what book do I want on my Kindle (now all hi-tech!)?
