I wish I could see Pup and Angel's faces as Opel greets them at the door with there toothbrushes to clean the bathrooms and toilets .
After I showered and changed into clean cloths I went to see Frost and Snow.
I could hear tinkle tinkle as I entered the cave ,,, that meant one thing my poor Snow was crying.
She heard me and turned her head so I would not see her tears that turn into small ice cubes as they fall.
I said in a soft voice ,,, Snow look at me my beauty,
She slowly turned and our eyes met mine were as wet as hers it was heartbraking for me but I had to be firm,
Snow I am sorry if what I did was so hard on you but even though you are over 80 years old you are still a baby and because you were raised outside of the Dragon family you are still learning the Dragons way but you will learn all for you have me and mostly your big brother Frost to teach you.
It has only been a few hours that I grounded you but I am lifting that as of now ,,, go join Frost and hunt.
I huge her huge neck and kissed her nose and whispered fly my beauty fly.
I walked her to the cave entrance and sent her to join Frost ... she spread her huge wings * grinned * bellowed and took to the air.
It is such an awesome site to see a Dragon in flight.
I called Frost on my Amulet FROST=== *RIDER* Snow is joining you happy hunting.
I walk to The Tea Room feeling good in my heart now on to my two scallywags that will not get off that easy.
THERE IS ONLY ONE BONE KING AND HIS NAME IS HELLIGI, THE RED DEATH! I FIND IT DISGUSTING HE WAS CHASED OUT OF HIS OWN HOME BY UNDERFAIL INVADERS! HE AND THE MANSION WARLORDS WERE THERE FIRST!
Sorry had to shout for a minute
Oh my aching back Angel!..........Well at least everything is spit-spot clean even to Captain Randy's high standards that's for sure....Oh, oh Angel I do believe I hear Him coming into the Kitchen this very second.....
"As Pup and Angel tempestuously wait for their Captain's arrival, an almost silent "Hissing" can be heard through out the Kitchen's outer walls ...as well as... in the Tea Room's Parlor and Tunnels also!"........Before our Dragon Duo could react.....a loud....."Kaboom comes forth!!!" Opal and Miss Katt came running with Frying Pan and Rolling Pin held firmly in their trusty fists.... just as fast as their sturdy feet could carry them!..........The scene before them was not a good one my dear Friends as they rushed toward a bloody and badly battered Angel and Pup pinned under a blown out wall........It was than that Opal remembered those "Secret Rooms" that PTG had secreted all types of "Spells" and other Anomalous kinds of who knows what..... none of which were stable to say the least I can tell you my Friends. It was to this horrible Scene that our Captain Randy came rushing into....
just as i reach the door of the tea room and turn the handle I smell a very strong odor like sulpher and acid and BOOMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM I am thrown ten feet in the air back wards and stop when I crack my head on a tree.
It takes a minute for my ears to stop ringing and head spinning but my eyes are burning bad.
I let go off the door that I still had in my hand it came flying with me.
I touch my forehead and winched ow and looked at my hand covered in blood,,, now thar;s goin smart in da morning
Then it hits me and I tear into a full run screaming OPEL.... MISS KATT...... PUP,,,, ANGEL,,,,, PTG OMG OMG
i RACE INTO THE TEA ROOM INTO A SCENE FROM HELL,,,,, The floor is almost gone ,, the windows totally cracked the walls split right up to the ceiling and a huge hole that you could see the upstarirs room and the sky,
Some tables and chairs had fallen into the dark hole and small fires were burning.
I hear moans and find Pup and Angel alive but pretty beaten up
I work my way around the hole and grab them both and get them away from the hole and manage to find a couple of chairs one is Charlies and the other I grab is Mrs. Fletcher's I sit Pup and Angel down far away from the hole and close to the fireplace that part of the room was untouched ,,
I look around and can not believe my eyes there is PTG in his bed still asleep but right next to the stairs I look up and see the blast made a hole right under his room and him in his bed ended up here and his dresser leaning over ready to crash down on him.
I grab a broken beam and ram it under the dresser to keep it from falling till I can get up there and move it away .
LORDY LORDY LORDY CAP WHAT HAPPENED?
I looked at Opel and Miss Katt standing by the kitchen door both armed with frying pan and rolling pins.
All I could think was the enemy but no one came screaming out of the hole ?????
I called the boys to get some help here and sent Frost and Snow to get Doc Deadman and nurse Kratchet.
Opel and Miss Katt brought some pots of hot water and clean towels to clean Pup and Angel up.
Cap Cap come here you are bleeding bad from your head,,, I am fine look after Pup and Angel I have to find out what caused this .
Only one thing to do,,,, I climbed into the hole ,, I had to cover my mouth the stebch made me gag.
I found myself in a room? I could see shattered glass and vials what was left of a long table and a chair on fire.
I stomped the small fires out but graded a torch before it went pitch black.
My head was pounding and my shirt getting wetter with my blood.
What in hell is this or was this place?
Is this one of PTG's or ROO ROO;s secret rooms and if so how many are there and were?
%^&*()_+_)(*&^%$#@ I need more light my shins are going to be black and blue from all the fallen debris and broken table and chairs
Maybe I can use a leg and make an other torch.
No rags that I can see guess my socks will have to do,
I wrap my one sock just to test it out and rub it in a puddle I see on the floor,,, touch it to the other torch and walllllla it works.
I shine my lights around the room man what a mess but lucky for me there are three more torches on the wall that I light up.
I douse my sock torch to save it for later now I know it works.
I look over the whole room or what's left of it and see I do not have enough stuff to stack or make a ladder to get out of here.
Yelling will do no good I do not think any one will hear me there ears most likely still ringing from the blast.
OH HO what is this ,,,, what luck I can see a door handle thing is it is blocked by the debris and dirt,
Time to get digging.
IT HAD BEEN QUIET AFTER THE CAP HAD PUTT THE TWO WAYWARD RECRUITS IN THE KITCHEN ON KP AS HE CALLED IT. HE CALLED THAT PUNISHMENT, HA! HE SHOULD HAVE SENT THEM TO THE BARN, DOGS TO BE BRUSHED AND BATHED, THE SAME WITH BABY AND BEAU, AND GOLDIE AND DOOGIE, THEN THERE WERE THE REST OF CAPS PETS. THERE WERE ONLY THE FOUR OF THEM IN THE ENCLOSURE AREA BUT THEY WERE NOT SMALL.
A LITTLE KITCHEN DUTY WAS NOTHING TO SEEING TO THE ZOO EVERYDAY. BUT I WOULD NOT TRADE WITH THEM FOR A MOMENT. LOTS OF UNCONDITIONAL LOVE FROM THESE GUYS. NOPE WOULD NOT TRADE.
DINKY, SMIDGE AND I WERE JUST FINISHING CHECKING ON FOOD AND WATER FOR THEM ALL SO WE COULD GO HAVE SUPPER. WHEN THERE WAS A HUGE BLAST AND THE GROUND SHOOK US RIGHT OFF OUR FEET ONTO OUR BUTTS. I HEARD GRIFF 'S LOUD SCREECH. LOOKED TO SUGAR AND SPICE THEY WERE ON ALERT BUT DID NOT SEEM TO BE OVERLY CONCERNED. I ASKED IF WE HAD BEEN ATTACKED. NO! WAS THE REPLY, THEN WHAT HAPPENED I WONDERED.
DID ROO OR JEN COME BACK. NO, WAS THERE REPLY.
GRIFF ARE YOU OK? YES, WAS HIS WAS HIS REPLY.
DINKY SMIDGE AND I PICKED OURSELVES UP. I TOLD THEM TO CHECK ON THE CAT AND DOG SIDE TO MAKE SURE NONE OF THEM WERE HURT AND THAT THE BARN WAS NOT DAMAGED FROM THE BLAST OR THE SHAKING I WOULD CHECK THIS SIDE. THEN WE WOULD GO FIND OUT WHAT THE BLOODY L WAS GOING ON.
THEY REPORTED BACK THE BUILDING WAS FINE SOME OF THE ANIMALS WERE FRIGHTENED AND HIDING. THIS SIDE WAS OK ALSO GOLDIE AND DOOGIE WERE HUDDLED TOGETHER, BABY AND BEAU HAD SETTLED DOWN LIKE THIS HAPPENED ALL THE TIME.
COME ON LET'S GO SEE WHAT HAPPENED AND WHERE. AS WE GOT CLOSER TO THE TEA ROOM I COULD TELL SOMETHING HAD GONE WRONG VERY, VERY WRONG. PART OF THE ROOF WAS GONE AND DUST AND SMOKE HUNG IN THE AIR OVER IT.
DINKY GO NOW GET THE GNOME BUILDER AT ONCE. THIS PLACE LOOKS LIKE IT IS ABOUT TO FALL. TELL THEM TO HURRY THERE ARE PEOPLE IN THERE AND WE NEED TO GET THEM OUT AND THE BUILDING BACK TOGETHER.
DAM THERE GOES SUPPER UNLESS THE KITCHEN IS STILL INTACT.
STANDING THERE WAS NOT GOING TO HELP ANYONE BUT GOING IN MIGHT NOT BE A VERY GOOD IDEA.
SO I GOT AS CLOSE AS I THOUGHT WAS SAFE AND YELLED AT THE TOP OF MY LUNGS. HELP IS ON THE WAY, JUST STAY WHERE YOU ARE AND DON'T MOVE AROUND. IS ANYONE HURT?
NO ANSWER, SO MAYBE THEY GOT OUT OR COULD NOT HEAR ME. SO NOW ALL I CAN DO IS WAIT FOR DINKY AND THE BUILDERS.
STILL I WONDERED WHAT THE L HAPPENED.
FEELING A TAD DIZZY (WHAT ELSE IS NEW ) THINKING I BETTER SIT FOR A BIT ,,,, OKAY IDJIT SIT ON WHAT????

AS I TRY ED TO SPEAK THE ROOM SPUN THEN WENT BLACK
With tears running down her face and a very heavy heart Pup gazes around the rooms that had been her home for so long a time......Quietly she lays down the Dragon Sword and her faithful staff on the nearest Tea Room Parlor table for dearest Friend and Mentor to find...."I hope and pray that you will understand when I tell you Captain Randy that our Journey together has brought with it so much joy and happiness throughout it's adventures here and beyond the Tea Room. Through the Special Room and Tea Room I've met and befriended so many of the MC's very Special Players and for that I will be forever grateful....but...now is the time for me to say Farewell dear Friend and comrade...Please stay safe Ok and know that you will always be held close to my heart...."
In the military camp Lt Col Rosie hears a faint message over her amulet. It must have come from someone quite far away who left their amulet open without realizing it. Pup? She remembers a very young girl that the Cap used to call Pup, who went with him to his new assignment. This doesn't sound like the girl she remembers, it sounds like a warrior who needs to fight a different battle in another place. Rosie sends a wish to this new Pup for the best of health and luck wherever she goes, and hope she remembers she will always be welcome in either camp no matter how long she's gone. "Stay well, Pup, and stay safe."
