The small group of us who decide to remain in Delphi gather together to develop a plan for foiling Murk’s trick. If we are successful, Jenny Wren may return to the here and now and join CAP and the others as they return to the old realm’s Special Room to battle Murk. We can then proceed to live the good life we all desire – free of evil and battles. Our old comrades are welcome to visit for R&R whenever they wish. Grim will remain with us until she wakes and then can decide where she would like to reside. As her Doctor, I feel it is important that she be kept from harm’s way until she is fully recovered.
Our initial plan of action:
Charlie will send out pets to gather information from the local animals to see if they can reveal any secrets. She may even find some Elves.
Ame will look for plants and other items which might be useful. She is fantastic at locating supplies.
Katt will keep us nourished and will talk to the gnome builders about repairing the hospital wing and repurposing at least part of it for more pleasurable pursuits. Maybe we can even have a pool.
Annikabelle will see if unicorn tears can do more than heal and maybe find love in the process.
The ghost players will work on accumulating wooden items so the gnome builders can make the renovations Katt designs and will look for computer parts for Grim.
The Pixiu will continue to protect us and hopefully Sebastien will remain with us as well.
And I will scour the record book and the books provided by Anna in the secret library to see if I can find an answer recorded in history.
We are to report to the Tea Room when we have useful information and always when we want to relax and have fun.
Hopefully as Delphi becomes peaceful again we will pick up some new friends.
Just as I was prepared to pack up and retire, Ghost Kitten Sam returned with a joyful bounce. "We don't have to leave, we can stay" "We can stay !!!!!!!!!!? " I ask him, "Yes, yes! " he exclaims, "We can stay and search the records for all sorts of things (Cats thoughts are very chaotic and jumbled). Lexandre is staying, he Iikes it here."
Some others are staying as well, I get the idea that Ame is staying, Doc will possibly be running a recovery unit for pets, Charlie will be knitting up a storm and looking after all the pets that can't go back. Maybe Mistress Katt, will stay and run the Tea Room here, it could be a R & R place for tired and injured troops.
I have always been of the opinion throughout my life that there is no going back, only going forward. The old realm threw us out, therefore I will not be going back, but staying here. I just cannot abandon the Library.
While am thrilled to receive the invitation to spend the season in Delphi, ( I have always wanted to spend time in Greece), I have to tell you that I do not travel without my ladies maid, Klothilde and my chauffeur Axelrod. I trust you have suitable quarters for them. Neither are very proficient in any language I have been able to identify 100%, but they do get along very well with most animals. They used to work for my grandmother and are quite trustworty.
As I told you in an earlier correspondance, I can help with bloodletting, ocular extractions and implants of feathers and scales.
Very much looking forward to hear from you dear collegue, and find out more about the people who I will share this delightful summer with.
I am delighted to hear from Trixie Belle that you were able to bring the library along with you. I hope you will give the camels a good rest. Someone will have to have a look at their feet, camelidae tend to have tender toes. Klothilde could give them a little pedicure.
The books were originally transported by Sebastien and his gang, who handled them very gently. At that time I had no camels at all, my animal friends being mainly feline.
Camels are welcome if they wish to come, and I am sure they will benefit from pedicures at some future date. How are you at clipping cat's claws. Myrtle needs at least four people to wrangle her, one to keep her back paws immobile, one to hold the 3rd paw, one to hold the paw being clipped and one to do the clipping. She is not keen on males of the human variety at all.
I'm sure the canines will love a bit of pampering.
Looking forward to a good, fun time in Delphi.
I am an early riser! As it is 4:30 am, I thought not to wake you, but I must be off to help Miss Katt with the breakfast preparations.
I want to thank you so much for your hospitality on no notice at all! It was an enchanting evening and I treasure our talks.
As for my love life, or lack thereof, well, you know what they say – there are plenty of fish in the sea! I’m a dreamer and I really must take my head out of the clouds and concentrate on our tasks at hand!
When you are ready to join us in the Delphi Tea Room, think of Luna and me and we will pick you up immediately!
Antio Gia Tora,
Tinker Belle and Luna
While I slept, Ghost Kitten Sam deposited the Record Book on my desk. As soon as I finished caring for Grim, I speed read looking for answers. I found one for Jenny Wren but still nothing for Grim. I copy all the relevant entries and rush to the Tea Room to share what I found. I leave copies around the Tea Room asking everyone to read this history of Jenny Wren’s demise.
“No!” Was all I could say before the Red Cloak punched through Jenifer's semi-corporeal back and ripped out her heart. It was red and bloody and still beating.
So there was a chance of restoring her! It was a real heart!
[We have many Craft Items in the MC inventory that can do the spells and restore full life to an afflicted individual.]
She tried to speak:
Nothing! no sounds, no thoughts“Please!" I was pleading with an unscrupulous monster to show mercy.
While Becki was cleaning up after the morning coffee rush, she read Jenny Wren's history. She smiled to herself as she thought we ghosts can help with this. She summoned Annaleise and a ghost player. The three of them called for Jenny Wren's ghost to join them. In seconds Jenny's ghost was happily flitting around the Tea Room. She and Annaleise headed off for mischief or maybe to update Jenny's wardrobe. No one but the ghosts knew Jenny's ghost was present in Delphi.
I listen to Ame, Cash and Wickerbat carefully. I explain to Ame that her dream is partially correct. Frost did not remove Grim. He removed the mechanized replica that I had been testing to determine the source of the whirring sound.
Just before I left the copies of the history in the Tea Room, I had left ***Tori*** and Grim in the sealed secret library. ***Tori*** wanted to visit some of her ghost friends and get some new books from Anna. As you know, only the ghosts, Anna, Pixiu, Charlie, Breeze, you and I can access the Sealed Secret Library. I have told the Pixiu not to allow entrance to ANYONE else including Sebastien. I have told ***Tori*** she will need to remain in the Secret Library until Grim awakens and decides where she would like to reside.
I remind Ame that Breeze placed a forgetfulness spell on the Sealed areas of the Castle so only those of us listed above to whom she gave charmed bracelets even remember it exists.
I then told a disheartened Cash and Wickerbat they would not be able to visit for fear of disclosing Grim's whereabouts.
Ame and I then discussed the history of Jenny Wren's demise. After much discussion, we decided that Murk's trick isn't really his trick but a secret he has concealed very well. Since Jenny's heart was crushed, we suspect that if she goes into human form it will not take much for her heart to stop. This could include physical trauma or stress but could be heartbreak as well. Oh my. We suspect the same thing would not be true if she went into an animal form or maybe even an animal form that became human. I'm afraid we're going to find out if this hypothesis is true since PTG took her straight from soul to human form.
We are unaware that the ghosts had called forth Jenny's ghost earlier.
