I have just listened to and tried to digest what my Fairy Godmother has been telling me.
I am be.... be..... be.... (rf. Pal Joey and Frank Sinatra!)
I had thought that the crumbling castle around our ears were forces of evil but not of such a diabolical kid as Adrian.
Even with Cap'n Bob and his troops in our sister Realm are insufficient to combat him in full combat mode.
I need to think!
AND I need to rescue a certain rabbit who I deposited last Spring for safe keeping with her brothers and sisters in my Spring Room!
So with a heavy heart as I sip my hong cha (so beautifully made by our new tea lady) I change my Spring Rooms to number one and call gently to the hidden bunny.
"Hoppyy, Hoppy wherever you are please come out now and let me take you to the Castle
"But first there is somewhere I would like us to visit before we go there"
A very shy but extremely intelligent smll hop-a-long emerges from behind her friends and leaps into my arms and smothers me with kisses. It is a year since we last met and our feelings are mutual.

Gently I gather her up and tell my magical broom to take us to the Fairy Forest and the HOS site of the Red and White Roses.

There in the background amid all the flotsam and jetsam of HOS inventory is a small stone in the ground.

It is a highly polished tombstone, which the gnomes had made for me and is a beautiful piece of carved Carrera marble.

~~~~~~~~~~~Demolition Enthusiast~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~Militant Critter Lover~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~AND Poet~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~We will never see her kind again~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~And no one should~~~~~~~~~~~~

As we look down on the stone wetting it with our tears, I get the impression of breezes swirling aound us that are not from this world.

AM BREEZE THAT IS NOT TRUE. HAVE YOU GHOSTLY FRIENDS COME TO ME I MAY HAVE A WAY FOR THEM TO LEAVE HERE AND CONTINUE AS THEY ARE. BUT I WILL HAVE TO TELL THEM MY PLAN. IT WILL WORK. I KNOW IT WILL. I CAN FEEL IT WILL. I ALWAYS TRUST MY FEELINGS IN THESE THINGS.

SEBASTIEN, BECKI, ANNALEISE, AND MAYBE EVEN BIG KITTY I AM QUITE FOND OF HER.

NOW TELL ME IF YOU THINK THIS WILL NOT WORK. WE ALL GO TO THE ENCLOSURE WHERE THE PETS ARE. ASK FOR VOLUNTEERS FROM AMONG THE LARGER PETS. IF THE PET AGREE THEN ALL THE GHOSTS HAVE TO DO IS ENTER THEM DO NOT TAKE OVER BUT JUST STAY QUIET. WHEN WE LEAVE THE PETS GO WITH US. AND THUS THE GHOSTS. THE THINGS THEY HAVE PACKED IN THE LIBRARY CAN BE SENT AHEAD ONCE WE KNOW WHERE WE ARE GOING.

OH ANNALEISE I HOPE YOU CAN FIT INTO EGOR. YOU AND HE ARE PERFECT FOR EACH OTHER. HE LIKES TO CAUSE AS MUCH TROUBLE AS POSSIBLE.

I KNOW HE IS NOT VERY LARGE BUT IF YOU THINK YOU CAN I MIGHT JUST BRING HIM TO THE TEA ROOM. MAYBE NOT SINCE WE NEED PTG TO GET US OUT OF HERE. HE IS ABOUT OUR ONLY HOPE OF STAYING TOGETHER.

PLEASE IF YOU DO WANT TO JOIN WITH EGOR TRY TO CONTAIN YOURSELF TILL WE ARE IN OUR NEW HOME. I HAVE AN ELEPHANT, A MAMOTH, AND A PONY HERE. BECKI I THINK BABY THE MAMMOTH WILL BE A MATCH FOR YOU SHE HAS CHRISTMAS LIGHTS ALL OVER HER. SEBASTIEN, BEAU THE BABY ELEPHANT MIGHT BE A GOOD FIT FOR YOU. BIG KITTY, I DO NOT HAVE A LARGE CAT BUT I KNOW YOU CAN BE WITHOUT FORM AS CAN BREEZE. SO YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO JOIN WITH GRIFF. THE GRIFFON,

SO BREEZE WHAT DO YOU THINK. I KNOW MY ANIMALS WILL VOLUNTEER,

I AM SURE IF THE GHOSTS PROMISE NOT TO TAKE THEM OVER OTHERS WILL VOLUNTEER TO HELP THEM.

The devastating news reached me all the way in the kitchen. The world is ending! A new home is needed. But how?

PTG... I need to find him...

I pop into the dining room and look around - no PTG.

"Does anyone know where PTG is?" I ask. "I found a magic wand in the Potion shop when I was foraging but I don't know how to use it. I want to ask if he can still get in touch with his Fairy Godmother to see if she can do anything with it to help us."

HE SAID HE HAD TO DO SOMETHING AND LEFT. SORRY KATT I DO NOT KNOW WHERE HE WENT. BUT HE WAS THINKING OF A RABBIT. NOT CLEARLY BUT I DID GET A RABBIT. GRIM? OR ANOTHER I DO NOT KNOW. WHICH IS UNUSUAL HE IS USUALLY VERY LOUD AND CLEAR.

I THINK HIS MIND IS IN A MUDDLE SO HE IS NOT CLEAR. YOU MUST CONTACT YOUR FRIENDS WHO WERE GOING TO TAKE CARE OF THE CHICKENS AND LIVESTOCK FOR US. WE WILL HAVE TO TAKE THEM. OH, DEAR DO YOU THINK WE CAN FIND ENOUGH BASKETS OR CAGES FOR THE CHICKENS THE LIVE STOCK SHOULD JUST FOLLOW THE LEADER.

BUT A ROPE ON ONE AND LEAD IT. THE REST WILL FOLLOW.

PACK AS MUCH FOOD AS YOU CAN, IF WE CAN FIND SOMEONE WITH A CART WHO IS WILLING TO LET US TAKE IT. OH, DEAR SO MUCH TO DO SO LITTLE TIME.

AT LEAST I WILL NOT HAVE TO GO BACK TO MY SON'S. HE DOES NOT LIKE ANIMALS. WELL, JUST NOT ON THE HOOF OR PAW. ON HIS PLATE, YEP.

I WILL HAVE TO SENT HOOT TO GET THE REST. I CAN'T LEAVE THEM BEHIND.
I OPEN MY AMULET AND CALL TO ANNA.

ANNA, DO YOU THINK THE LIONS WILL HELP BY TRANSPORTING SOME OF THE GHOSTS. IF WE CAN MAKE SOME CARRY SACKS MAYBE THEY WILL ALSO TAKE THE BOOKS AND SCROLLS.
THEY ARE PACKING THE LIBRARY FOR YOU. I AM SURE YOU NOTICED BOOKS AND SCROLLS MOVING. SAM CAN COME WITH ME OR DO YOU WANT HIM WITH YOU?

MY MIND IS BOUNCING FROM THOUGHT TO THOUGHT.

I DO WISH THE CAP WAS HERE.

ONE THING, THE GHOST WILL NOT BE RIDING THE LIONS. THEY WILL BE INSIDE OF THEM. OTHERWISE THEY WILL BE LEFT BEHIND. THEY CAN NOT LEAVE HERE ON THERE OWN. BUT MUST BE TAKEN. OTHERWISE THEY WILL FREEZE IN PLACE AGAIN. WITHOUT THE LIVING THEY GO INTO A STASIS STATE. IT IS NOT FAIR TO THEM FOR US TO HAVE AWAKENED THEM THEN LEAVE THEM.

I NEED TO GET MY KNITTING FROM MY ROOM. WHERE THE ELVES HID IT. I THINK I SAY A GOOD SIZED CARPET BAG IN THE BEDROOM. I WILL NEED IT FOR THE WHITE WOOL AND THE COLORED BALLS THE ELVES MADE.

I WONDER IF THIS DESTRUCTION WAS THE REASON THEY LEFT SO SUDDENLY. I DO HOPE THEY AND ALL THE OTHER HELPFUL CREATURES FIND THEIR WAY TO OUR NEW HOME. THE THOUGHT OF NOT SEEING SALTY, OR THE ELVES AND GOOD GNOMES. AND THE OTHER FRIENDS LIKE HENRY. THEY MUST AT LEAST BE ABLE TO VISIT. IF NOT STAY.

Sebastien has brought the Record Book to the Tea Room and both he and I has been looking through it for answers.

I believed Katt was quite surprised when he chained it to one of her new tables!

Looking down at his notes, he then took out his mirror and concentrated.

He then disappeared . . .only to re-appear a few seconds later.

Smiling. He had found the portal to our new home.

He then picked up his notes and knelt in front of Charlie. . .

"MY DEAR LADY, THANK YOU FOR YOUR LOVELY OFFER TO RESCUE ME AND MY FRIENDS.

I HAVE NOW FOUND THE PORTAL TO OUR NEW HOME. ALL I HAVE TO DO NOW LEAD THE GHOST PLAYERS THROUGH THE PORTAL AND HAVE THEM SET UP A NEW SECRET LIBRARY. ONCE THE MIRROR IS SECURED THERE, I CAN USE THE SMALLER MIRRORS TO LEAD OTHERS THERE. "

AS SEBASTIEN WAS SPEAKING, HE BEGAN TO BE SURROUNDED BY EVERY CAT AND KITTEN IN THE AREA. FROM FAR OFF, I COULD HEAR A LION ROAR.

"I AM SURE THAT SAM CAN NOTIFY HIS MISTRESS THAT THE GHOSTS WILL BE HAPPY TO ASSIST HER IN HER PACKING. AS FOR YOUR ITEMS . . . THANK YOU GRAMMI G . . HERE IS YOUR CARPETBAG AND KNITTING YARN.

I BELIEVE IF YOU SEND OUT NOSE AND NIX WITH A MESSAGE, THEY CAN LOCATE YOUR ELVEN FRIENDS. THEY BECAME GOOD FRIENDS WITH NIX WHILE YOU WERE TRANSPORTING THEM.

THE OTHER INMATES HAVE PETS YOU MAY NOT HAVE MET BUT CAN ASSIST YOU. DOC POPPET HAVE TWO DRAGON COMPANIONS, CINDERS AND PUFF. AUNTIE ROO HAS A MONKEY NAMED FEZ. THERE IS A GERMAN SHEPARD NAMED TYREE WHO ANSWERS TO AN INMATE NAMED RIDDLER.
THE MESENGER PIGEONS YOU SEE FLYING AROUND BELONG TO PTG' S FAIRY GODMOTHER.

AND PTG HAS A PET OWL NAMES HOOTIE AND A RAVEN FRIEND WHO CAN COMMUNICATE MENTALLY.

I AM QUITE SURE THAT YOU WITH YOUR WAY WITH ALL CREATURES GREAT AND SMALL WILL KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH THEM."

SEBASTIEN PICKED UP HIS NOTES AND STOOD UP. THEN HE WALKED OVER TO ME.

" I HAVE TO BACK TO THE LIBRAY AND BEGIN THE MIGRATION. I WILL RETURN SOON. MEANWHILE, YOU WILL BE PROTECTED."

SUDDENLY ALL THE FELINES THAT HAD SURROUNDED SEBASTIEN WERE NOW SURROUNDING ME (WITH THE EXCEPTION OF PRECIOUS AND SAM, WHO REMAINED WITH CHARLIE). ONCE AGAIN THERE WAS A FAR OFF ROAR.

SEBASTIEN DISAPPEARED. ANNALEISE REMAINED, STILL SMILING.

"I WONDER WHERE PTG AND HIS BROOM IS NOW?"

YES CHARLIE, THE LIONS MOST CERTAINLY DO NOT WANT TO BE LEFT BEHIND. THEY WILL TRANSPORT WHATEVER AND WHOEVER THEY CAN.
THEY ARE TURNING OUT TO BE MOST USEFUL ANIMALS,

THEY WILL TRANSPORT THE GHOSTLY MEMBERS OF THE ROOM AS WELL, BUT SUGGEST THEY HANG ON TIGHTLY AS THEY WILL NOT REALLY KNOW IF THEY LOSE ONE.

SAM WILL GO WHERE HE IS MOST USEFUL, HE IS GOOD LIKE THAT AND HAS A GRIN THE SIZE OF TASMANIA AT THE THOUGHT OF HAVING A GOOD TIME.
HE LOVES TO HELP AND HE IS VERY FOND OF KITTEN ERMINE AND BIG KITTY.

AS YOU SAY, SO MUCH TO DO, SO LITTLE TIME. SOME OF THOSE BOOKS ARE VERY HEAVY. I MOVED 140 BOOK CARTONS INTO THE SECRET LIBRARY AND HAVE ADDED MORE SINCE I ARRIVED. WHENEVER I MOVE, I NEVER HAVE TIME TO CULL THEM AND HOPE ONE DAY TO BE ABLE TO DO SO. I AM SURE THERE ARE DUPLICATES AND TRIPLICATES OF SOME. INSTEAD OF TAKING THEIR OLD BOOKS TO THE OP SHOPS, PEOPLE TEND TO DROP THEM OFF TO ME.

BACK TO WORK, REAL LIFE CALLS. MY FRIENDS WHOSE HOUSE DECIDED TO DROP DOWN A CLIFF ARE FINALLY MOVING INTO THEIR NEW HOME AND I NEED TO HELP TO REPAIR BOOKCASES.

As we travel back into the Castle area from the Fairy Forest on our “borrowed” magic carpet I can now see the true devastation inflicted there.

Practically every zone has been bombarded with hot rocks and lava with many places now quite unsafe to travel along.

Our worthy citizens are OK since they do not stray from their HOS tasks but move on elsewhere when these have been completed.

They are also zapping hoards of the floating eggs as trophies for their Achievements.

This all adds to the chaos and mess! . And I have to restrain my broom which would surely be cinders within seconds if sweeping down there

I touch down inside the Tea Room

But it seems to me to be almost impossible for us daring doers to either travel above the surface or below it!

I realize that some of the devastation has gone deep and major tunnels have now collapsed. Getting from A to B now involves going through most of the letters of the alphabet and then there is no certainty of arriving.

Adrian has done “a grand job” on us all.

But we must prevail

As I return to my seat I am invaded by hoards of small pets.

After a few huffs and puffs in greeting Hoppy jumps down and does little jigs around the floor with Cash and Wickerbat.

There is still some laughter amid the gloom of the present time!

“It is time to make a plan.

“Not necessarily a cunning one, but one that is both safe and effective.

Now here this!”

I clear my throat and am shouted down by recalcitrant ladies of various guises and girths! Accompanied by several small objects, mostly of stale bread!

One who shall be nameless, but who I will put into my "little black book"!

“Oh be quiet!

“We have all matters in hand for removal to a safe haven

“All we want from you is a destination!”

I smile and lay out the map of the entire Realm.

I point: “Here!”

The table is immediately surrounded by my partners as I point to Atlantis

“No! No! No! That will not be safer than anywhere else here
“Have you lost your marbles, or something?”

I smile and say: “That is very odd you should put it that way

“Where I think we will go now is into the unknown zone BEYOND the Atlantean Temple and behind the Altar of a Thousand Candles

“This is guarded by two extremely large and fierce ravens who happen to be cousins of MY intelligent pet raven.

“He tells me that there is a secret passage behind the altar that will lead us into the ‘land of milk and honey'!

“Otherwise known as Delphi , which was the old centre of the world BEFORE the Midnight Castle was even thought of never mind built!

“There we and rest and regroup and then decide how best to continue with our quest to banish ALL evil, and that INCLUDES Adrian, from the Midnight Castle Realm.

“Any questions?”

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!"
