Poor PTG........I really hated to see Frost following Captain Randy's orders that way...treating PTG like you would a bag of soiled laundry....But when it comes ta following Captain Randy's it's always "Jump Too Nellie Poo" or face the consequences afterward yessiree bob tail! The Captain sometimes may resemble a cuddly "Big Ol Teddy Bear" but don't be fooled by that because it's only there for those who truly need His compassion and gentleness at the time.........Most of the time He needs to put on His Mean Old Papa Bear suit in order to get things done....Right Special Room Forces and Compatriots?......I can hardly wait until he comes face to face with tiny Rainbow with her beautiful Iridescent blue, violet and rose coloring.........When She sing's her words even the birds become silent so can hear Her soothing song......
As I slither down from Frosty in a MOST undignified manner, ill befitting the Chief Sweeper Upper of the Midnight Castle and Keeper of the HOS Repository I am somewhat miffed at the casual way that overblown lizard has treated me.
AND I fully realize that he understands every one of my thoughts about him and his rider!
But then I catch sight of Roo Roo and she looks even greener than I do!
The Cap’n as usual is bellowing out orders to us all, but first I need the bathroom!
We have been deposited in the middle of scrub with no evidence of sanitation whatsoever.
I am just about to rectify my urgent need with a quick return trip back to the Castle on my trusty broom, when I am tongue lashed by the Cap’n and with accompanyng sniggers from Roo.
“We are on a military rescue mission and have no time for your creature comforts.
“Also do not leave you amulet in the open mode as it may cause people (back at Base camp) some hilarity!
“You stay where you are and use this bottle!”
I feel my cheeks go scarlet at the public humiliation
How many times have I told the Cap’n that I am not a military man? I am a free-lance musketeer who likes his home comforts!
But now I cannot depart for even a minute
Strangely enough my urgent need has disappeared!
I am just making myself more “comfortable” when I get a buzz on my amulet.
It is Mrs Fletcher calling to us!
She is in a right “tizz” as the Tea Room has just filled up with strangers in smart suits all politely requesting tea and muffins.
What has got her in this state, as she is more than capable of serving a bus load of customers on her own, is that one of these gents has followed her into the kitchen and is taking a keen interest not on what she is doing but on her surroundings.
When he thinks she is not watching, he surreptitiously slips out a folding tape measure and sizes up the room, door and windows.
These he notes down while complementing her on her culinary skills.
She is not fooled for a moment but does notice that he is not trying to seek out any of the magical wards placed on the room to protect it.
He then returns to the other suited gents in the Tea Room
She overhears quiet mutterings between them to the effect that her kitchen is too small. The internal wall will have to be knocked out if the guest wizard is to set up his laboratory there.
At this information she almost, but not quite, has a heart attack and calls out to us all with her news
"Screech!, Cawwww!, Screech!, Caw Caw!" What in the world has got you two in such a tether Wise Raven and Grumpy Owl? .......There's Strangers in the Dining room that seem mighty suspicious and you don't like it one little bit? Hummmmmm.......Let me take a peek here......Yes, they do seem out of place among our Special Rooms Just Slightly Insane Folk....Hummmm....How may I help you Gents this fine day?.......Muffins and cups of Tea? Well your in luck because I just finished some of the Tearooms famous Poppy seed and Lemon Muffins this morning and will bring you out a tray of them along with your tea in just scoot of a minute......"Caw..Caw..Caw! What in the world has your tail feathers all ruffled now Wise Raven?... ...The Stranger's are doing what with measuring tapes?......I'll take this tray out and just take a wee peek at what those Scallywags are up too..."Why thank you kind Sir for the compliment"......I will come back in just a jiff and clear the table when your finished Ok?........"Hoot, Hoot?" Yes indeed Grumpy Owl...Those "Never do Wells" didn't fool this Old Gal one iota no siree! It's a good thing I have the Amulet that dear Captain Randy gave us right handy..."Captain Randy could you and PTG return to the Tea Room as soon as you can? I believe something bad is about to happen and I think that I am about to have a bit of a swoon so please hurry OK? "
PTG and I hear the urgent message from Mrs Fletcher and run into each other in the square .
Good thing the show is over and such a huge success that everyone from The Bone Kingdom has begged us to stay and they promise to bring more from other areas to see the spectacular show we have.
My mind is yelling YESSSSSSSSSSS this is perfect so I get PTG to announce that through popular demand we will stay a week that is if they promise to fill the Tents every night.
A ROAR comes from the crowd and that seals it ,,, this gives me all the time I need to really look around and find Jacob's family and everyone will be so used to seeing us around it will cause no suspicion .
PTG in frantic what do we do ???? Mrs Fletcher can not handle those guys alone ,,, I know calm down I have a * cunning plan**
You keep things quite here I will not be long.
I call Frost RECON my brave one and in minutes we are air borne ,,, I explain to Frost what I need him to do ,,, we need a storm as a cover **understand RIDER.**
Frost starts by gathering clouds and blowing small amounts of his ice breath in them,,,
Down below it starts to snow gently,,, one of the suits looks out side and sees the snow and curses because they are not dressed for the cold .
He says damn looks like a freek storm brewing lets get back before it gets to bad or we will freeze to death ** I chuckle*** exactly my friend ,,,
Frost intensify s the snow and adds a bone chilling wind with it.
The suites try to out run the storm but Frost ads an Arctic blast and they are frozen in time and space,,,,,now on to the others.
You would think that wizard would come better prepared ,, guess he is to busy gloating over his take over plans we here you go my friend it will take you a month of Sundays to dig out of this mountain of snow and ice/
Bury them Frost and to make sure they can not move .
I watch from Frosts back as snow and ice so heavy buries the Tent and all within there has to be at least 10/12 feet of rock hard ice and snow.
I feel Frost getting tired okay my brave one lets return you need to eat and drink and rest,, that will hold them until we finish our mission.
Frost lands in a valley away from preying eyes and where he can hunt and drink I walk back to The Bone Kingdom ,
On my way back to The Circus tents I run into Anabel ,, I want to thank you again Your Majesty for not giving me away,,,,
Captain I would never do that I know you are here to help me and my people to end this war ,end this evil and to restore the land to it's rightful owners , there has been to much lose of life and our animals as well so your secret is safe with me.
We talk for hours and I get so much information I am over whelmed .
She talks about The Vikings about they are more savage the The White ORGE my heart races is that possible ?
Yes she says and the woman are more vicious and blood thirsty then there men.
There are rumors that those not killed where taken to there Castle and if not sold they are enslaved.
Where is this place My lady maybe that is where we will find Jacobs Family ?
Here she hands me a parchment that she drew a map but you have to be careful there is a Viking Warrior * Female * who is viscous.
And at the there Castle entrance it is protected by a White Dragon a Female .. my heart stops.
A White Dragon?????????? that can not be My Lady there is only one White Dragon and I am his rider ???
I know of Frost Captain but I also know of her for I have seen her myself.
I jump up bow and say I am so sorry My Lady I must go talk with Frost.
I run before she can answer me.
"Jingle Bells..Jingle Bells..Jingle all the way!".......Why in the world are you singing a Winter type song in Springtime May Salty?......Have you been outside yet Mrs Fletcher?...I've been way to busy helping Opal fix Rations for Captain Randy's latest Adventure to step outside Salty......Why?...Well now it purely like Old Man Winter decided to pay us one more visit and dumped a whole lot of snow and ice all around the Tearoom that's why......There's even even three "Ice Men Sculptures" right out front of the Tea Rooms door...Gotta say though, they look kinda pretty there with the Sun light sparkling on um.....Hummmmm....Salty, I bet what happened here was dear Frost and Captain Randy coming to our rescue....Now all I will have to do is get some one to help get rid of those Scoundrels when they finally thaw out....Till then, its back to kitchen I go.....
As much as I want to run I have to walk until I am out side the Bone Kingdom to get to Frost.
When I see it is safe I run as fast as I can to the clearing where I left Frost.
@#$%^&*(**&^%$# he is not here ,, he must be hunting ,, I rub my Amulet and call Frost come ASAP.
I wait pacing and making a grove in the grass,, finally he arrives and says *RIDER why you call me from my hunt***???
I am sorry my brave one but I need to talk to you.
We have been together I your Rider for many years but know little about you or your family.
What do you need to know Rider , more than I am Ruth the only white dragon from Pern you call me Frost and we are Dragon and Rider I do not understand what you need to know more of?
I know my brave one but I discovered something today that has me completely baffled and if this information did not come from Anabel I would just shrug it off but I can not for she told me she seen this with her own eyes.
What is it Rider ??
Do you have any family?
No Rider you are my family here and The Dragons back in Pern are comrades.
Well I have been told there is a White Female Dragon guarding The Fort in The Northern Area and that Jacobs family might be held there by The Vikings ,
Frost gets a far away look in his eyes and says we must go see Rider .
We fly high as not to be seen and reach The Fort Area ,,, it looks scary and dangerous we fly all over the area and I spot The Female Viking she does look dangerous,,, Frost there that way .
Then we spot the front of the Fort ,, the bridge to it's enterance and then The White Dragon.
I feel Frost's heart race and he dives towards her ..... NO NO NO Frost we will be seen, he does not heed me but and continues to dive.
He almost dive bombs the White Dragon and I hear him speak in his native tongue as he swoops closer he extends his talons OMG he is going to kill her.
I pull with all my strength but I can not stop him,,, he swoops and get close enough to break her chains then he fly's up and wait speaking to her she looks up then stretches her huge wings and takes off to join us.
Frost leads her back to our spot and tells me RIDER get down,,,, I jump down and he is off to meet her high in the sky... my heart is beating so fast did I just cause the death of an other Dragon? a white one ??
I can not see much but I do see them flying around each other like a face off and hear them speak , I do not understand all but I do understand a few words Frost taught me.
I see them fly close and embrace and do There Dragon Dance I am awe struck and all I can do is watch.
It is so beautiful to watch Dragons fly like this as one tears fill my eyes.
I see them unlock and fly down to me in a silent landing and barley a breath of wind they land,,,,
I run to them and see both have tears in there eyes.
Rider you have given me the most precious gift ,, you have found my Twin Sister.
My mouth drops open,
Yes Rider My Twin Sister who we all thought had died,,,, but I always felt something was missing in my heart that that something was near and one day I would find it and Rider you have filled that hole in my heart as he cuddled his sister I cried with them.
Rider this is my Twin Sister named Neigh *** means Snow *** Neigh this is my Rider Captain Randy.
Neigh comes closer and lowers her head in Dragon acceptance and I touch her then as I do with Frost rub her ears behind her horns.
She almost purrs if Dragons purr more of a throat rumble
May I call you Snow my beauty? she nods
All this is so much to take in it is like I am dreaming and about to wake and find it all gone.
Frost reads my thoughts No Rider it is all true .
Seeing Snow does not have an Amulet Frost speaks for her.
Rider sister says thank you for freeing her from her captures and for uniting us.
I am so off whelmed all I can do it hug them both.
We spend hours talking and I am told of how when Neige was hatched with Frost they thought it was a miracle never have Twin Whites been hatched.
But that joy did not last for Neigh was weak and was taken to the Golden Queen all where told she would not make it she was to weak, she was taken back to the hatching ground and when they thought she took her last breath she was laid to rest
One of the none breeding females was to watch over her until she was moved to they final resting ground,,
The female was heart broken for she always wanted her own lill one and not being a breeding female that would never happen ,,, she watched over Neigh and kept her warm and safe and knew she was no gone so she did the unspeakable she took Neigh to another Realm in Pern and raised Neigh as her own until she was killed and Neigh captured and taken away.
I had a million questions but I has lost track of time and I had to get back or I would be missed and I did not want to draw attention to my being away so long.
I left and told Frost and Snow I would return as soon as I could stay safe and alert .
On my way back I bagged two deer for the Lions to cover up my long absence .
Good thing I did ,, as I reach the main entrance I was stopped and asked where were you so long??
I showed the Guard the two deer and said out getting diner for the Lions you know they can get very mean when hungry..he nodded and let me pass whew that was close.
I got to the main Tent and found Charlie feeding the critters and handed her the deer here you go supper for Sugar and Spice.
She shot me a look ,, you know they do not like dead meat they hunt fresh so I said calm down I will explain come I have news.
I called PTG ROO ANGEL Opel, and the boys to meet me in my Tent I have very very big news.
My oh My! .... ....So much has happened in our Special Room while I was away in my Never Never Land!! Of course it will take me a wee time before I may catch up...but never fear by fallowing all of you Sweeties it won't be too long before I do. Thank you so much Captain Randy dear with your timely message. And Angel dear...XXXOOO! ...Now if we could only get PTG to stop picking on our Poor Roo?...
As I prepare the meeting and tell all my mind blowing news I hear Mrs. Fletcher and answer via the Amulets ,, do not fret sweetie we all have been there and all you have to do is rest get your strength back follow Doc Deadmans orders Miss Katt is there to see to that lol.
As far as PTG and Roo well what can I say lol.
We all get ready for the meeting but dear Opel says a hum dinner is getting cold lay all that aside and eat before I get me rolling pin.
YIKES every one sit and eat before we get hit on da noggin .
Dinner was fabulous as always and as Opel clears the dishes away I brought out the map Anabel gave me.
Okay first things first ,,, we have a new member in our family as I went on to explain about Snow and what I knew so far.
Now I have more information about where I am sure Jacob's family is being held along with several other's that were captured
I fold out the map okay we are here I point to The Ghost Town Square and we need to get here The Northern Island past the Viking female warrior in The Sacred Cove and on to The Frosty Fort that is where Frost and Snow will help us .
WE must avoid The Cursed House and The Grin Cellar just off of Creepy Street , thank Anabel we have this map or we would be in big trouble and turned into the Cursed House but we do need to get to Creepy Street and go left around to the back ally leading to The Northern Island once there we have to find a way in The Island Shore to avoid The Warrior in the Secret Cove ,, The Fort is just behind that,
We need to do a few night recons so I can get a better lay of the land.
So I have an idea for the next few nights we give a Fireworks show at the end of the regular show so ROO ROO I need you to whip up some boomers and bangers that will last for at least an hour can you do that?
That will cover up me being gone every one will be busy watching the fireworks.
PTG I need you to announce this at tonight's show that for 3 days starting tomorrow as our thanks to all who welcomed us we will put on a huge fire work display free of course .
Any questions ??
I will do a short recon tonight with Ghost Pup and Nose and talk some more with Anabel.
Okay ready ? lets get the show started it is almost 19;00 hours ,,, sorry 7 pm.
"Questions?? I do not have time for questions, I'll be back soon"
I raise the hood on my cloak & head back to my hideaway.
" Whip up some boomers & bangers to last an hour"...I replay Randy's words in my head & it is like music to my ears! I have lots to do to make this a spectacular event.
I make a list in my head of all the items I will need & then multiply it by three for the three shows.
Goodness me!... I need more combustibles.I think 30 sticks of dynamite might just be enough.......maybe 50..... No, 100 just to be sure!
I wouldn't want my display to turn into a damp squid, ha ha.
I raise the hood on my cloak & head back to my hideaway.
With all the necessary items I return.
"PTG & Angel I need you to help make the fireworks...Come along & do not dawdle".
We walk to the temporary showers at the edge of the camp,which is little more than a roofless shed. I have already painted a scull & cross bones on the door with a sign " DO NOT ENTER" & placed the other essential items in the corner.
As they both look at me in disbelief I explain that with this amount of dynamite we need to be careful to avoid blowing up the entire Bone Kingdom & everyone in it!!!...and this is the safest place available.
"Now listen very carefully....Open each stick of dynamite, add a few drops of the coloured dye from these bottles & one of the floating objects from this box.I need to arrange a permit from the Bone King but in the meantime I need to lock you both in as you must not be disturbed during this delicate process." PTG mumbles but Angel says " The quicker we do this the quicker we'll be out of here.Hopefully before any of this explodes!"
A couple of hours later I return with refreshment for my assistants.
"My goodness you have have both done well, now sit back & enjoy your tea & cakes while I move the fireworks somewhere safe until they are needed tomorrow."
I climb the ladder I have placed on the outside of the shower & throw a bar of soap to PTG & Angel.
"What's this for?" Angel asks.
"You will need it to wash off the remnants of explosives from your hands & clothes." I then blast them both with cold water from the hose.
