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.
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.
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.
