Cap’n Bob is at present berating me for being stupid and showing lack of leadership!

“You have found nothing, have no thoughts about anything relevant and no plan for doing anything useful”.

That is a bit unfair!

I retort:

”I defy YOU to tell me where she is then! You were the one to give her the option to blow everything up!

“Let us sit down calmly and try to work out a time-line and then we may find out where she is at the moment.

“Angel, you get us a flip-chart and marker pen and we will try to work out the sequence of events”

She scuttles off to her cubby hole which also serves as a stationary cupboard and is soon back with her tools of the trade.

”Now first of all Cap’n – what did YOU do?”

All I get as an answer is a load of incohent expletives on how our partner blew up everything up ON HIS INSTRUCTIONS and caused the gnomes to rub their hands with glee at the thought of all the extra paid work at HIS expense!

“OK! Now for Jen’s part in all this. What happened next?”

The Cap’n is still in full flow and continues

“When she emerged from the bowels of the earth having ‘tidied up’ part of them, she was not well pleased when denied a replacement set of clothes at Kayley’s because of YOUR trick!

“She did not object to the fact that Charlie had miscalculated the amount of explosive to be installed in one place!”

“It is not MY fault Kayley refused to serve her with replacement clothing. THAT was your doing PTG!

“She then went off in a huff because she thought we did not value her talents sufficiently

“It is also NOT MY Fault that some prison guards happened by pure chance to be around when she emerged from that hole and was caught and incarcerated after a very vociferous altercation with one of them”.

Now we are getting to the interesting bit!

I get hold of the marker pen and scribble on the chart: NEXT!

“After a while the guard arresting her emerged and was pounced on by Frosty and dumped in the eel’s moat, which the builders have recently widened into a small lake.

“Shortly afterwards a VERY disgruntled Jen replete with convicts clothing slunk back out of the guards tunnel and hot footed it over the hill.

“Before being captured she had had the foresight to hide her stache of XXXX Ale and this she now retrieved.

“She had a ‘few jars’ to strengthen her resolve, replete with burps and other flatulent noises, gathered up her belongings and fled towards Valhalla.

“This is where I took over and sent the Hoppy-lookalike complete with note and pencil after her"

And we all know what happened next, or do we?

"On her way there she simply vanished in the snow and ice with our guard Tarquin in hot pursuit. but did NOT disappear but continued to search for her.

"Frosty and the other dragons were elsewhere as they had 'done their job' on the guard"

Who else is there that can contribute, I muse?

My pet crow chimes in: “well there is the rabbit here in your pocket; ask her!”

It is now warm and well fed with more carrots from the kitchen.

Since Charlie has not interfered to protect it, I feel able to quiz a little.

“What occurred as you followed Jen?”

The crow transposes the rabbit’s thinking into my head and I am able to understand a little more about was had transpired.

In the air above Jen and following her was a greenish grey mist

The rabbit shudders at the recollection of it, and screams at me: ”EVIL MAGIC!”

Charlie is at my side in an instant.

“What are you doing you torturing oaf!”

“Oh! sit down woman and don’t get your knickers in a twist! All I am asking is a few simple questions.

“And now I have some of the answers!”

A magical greenish grey mist that must have come from the Northern Lands or Bone Kingdom.

“We need information and must consult the library.

“Angel look into the Northern Lands and I’ll look into the Bone Kingdom  tomes.

“We need a spell that transfers such mist into clones, zombies or doppelgangers!”

It is just then that Cap’n Bob gets a message from Frosty:

“Rider. There is such a mist over area just blown up. It is oozing from deep in the ground and spreading out over the hills.”

“WeE need to neutralize it but how!”

Angel grins and comes up with a proposal:

“We give it sprinkles!”

Has she gone stark raving mad?

She looks at me with disdain and continues:

“No, you fool – not sprinkles - sweets but sprinkles - lights

“Each light will cancel the effect of the mist until we get a cloudless sky again”

Ah! I wish we had Grim or Roo Roo here since this area is their expertise.

What would they do?

I vaguely remember Chu Seok (the Korean New Year celebrations) from the tower of the Castle.

Firework rockets! BIG ones.

Time to sift through some catalogues and get one or two ordered.

Get them to Jen as she is in the right place (in the centre of the hiatus) to set them off.

We now  have a Cunning Plan!

And this will restore our usual law and disorder in the Realm

It will also sort Jen out for further escapades since she is the one that will set off all of these!

The tunnel behind Jen will act as the launching pad.

This 420 kg/925 lb firework is the 'Yonshakudama' the worlds ...

the Result:

Watch: World's largest aerial firework looks like a bomb - Deseret ...

“So what do you all think to my idea?

“Any other ideas?

“We must find Jen and give her the details of our conclusions and help her decide how she is going to escape from her present incarceration

“I am sure we have the means to track her, Charlie? Whether on the surface or underground, she can’t be far away surely

“ We will go ahead and purchase the firework bombs if that meets your approval Capn’ Bob?”

THE ONLY TRACKER I HAVE THAT FILLS THE BILL IS GHOST PUP.   THE MIST WILL HAVE NO EFFECT ON HIM.  HE CAN GO TO WHERE JEN IS EVEN IF SHE IS IN A TUNNEL.  WALLS AND ROCK ARE NO PROBLEM FOR HIM.

THE DOWN SIDE IS IT I WILL HAVE TO BE THE GO BETWEEN HIM AND YOU OR WHOEVER IS LEADING THIS RECOVERY OR WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT.   HE CAN NOT WEAR AN AMULET AND IS NOT CHIPPED.  THEY WOULD FALL TO THE GROUND HE HAS NO SOLID FORM.  

SO IT IS GHOST PUP OR NONE.

AFTER HEARING ALL THE ACCUSATIONS ABOUT  WHO DID WHAT AND WHO WAS TO BLAME,, I CLAMP ME TEETH TOGETHER AS NOT TO JUMP ON PTG AND RIP OFF HIS FACE.

HE NEVER EVER OWNS UP TO WHEN HE F***/S UP.

I HOLD UP MY HAND AND SLAM THE PAD DOWN AND SAY OKAY LETS GET ONE THING STRAIGHT RIGHT HERE AND NOW.

CHARLIE WHERE DID YOU HID THE VERY LARGE STASH OF BOMBS AND GUN POWDER BULLETS AND TNT?

WELL IN A PLACE I KNEW NO ONE WOULD LOOK NOT EVEN OPEL OR MISS KATT.

I PUT ALL OF IT IN BARRELS AND PUT IT UNDER THE KITCHEN FLOOR BACK UP AGAINST THE WALL SO OPEL OR MISS KATT WOULD NOT MISTAKE IT FOR BACKING/COOKING GOODS THEN PUT THE REAL BARRELS IN FRONT .

WHO KNEW JEN WOULD GO SNOOPING AND FIND THEM AND WHO KNEW SHE HAS MATCHES ON HER?

I LOOK AT PTG?? SO MY FAULT HUH?

YES I GAVE HER ORDERS TO BLOW UP THE TUNNELS BUT DID SHE COME TO ME AND ASK FOR THE PLANS AS TO WHERE SHE WAS TO BLOW UP ???

ANYWAY IT IS DONE NOW WE HAVE TO FIX THIS MESS === AGAIN

OKAY PTG ORDER THE FIREWORKS AND NOW TO FIND JEN HUM

THERE IS ONLY ONE ANSWER TO THIS,,,,, CHARLIE DO YOU TRUST PTG WITH GHOST PUP?

HE CAN GO SEARCH EVERYWHERE WE CAN NOT.

BUT MY QUESTION CHARLIE IS HOW DO WE KNOW WHERE HE IS AND IF HE FOUND JEN?

YOU CAN NOT GO.... i CAN NOT SEE NOR UNDERSTAND HIM..... NOR ANGEL... BUT ONE OF US HAS TO BE THERE

SO IT IS UP TO YOU CHARLIE MAY WE USE WHAT LOOKS LIKE OUR ONLY LIFE LINE TO FINDING JEN AND WHO WILL GO WITH HIM AND ONE OF US YOU DECIDE.

PTG GET THAT ORDER IN ASAP

I LOOKED AT THE CAP.   I DON'T ,   NOT EVEN WITH HIS BROOM WHY THAT SILLY THING STAY WITH HIM I DO NOT KNOW.    

THEN I LOOKED AT PTG,  YOU WILL NOT SEE, NOR CAN YOU HEAR WHAT GHOST PUP SAYS.  I CAN.   YOU WILL KNOW WHERE HE IS AND WHICH WAY TO GO BY WHERE HE RUBS AGAINST YOUR LEG.  IF THAT IS NOT ACCEPTABLY TO YOU PTG THEN ONE OF THE BIG CATS WILL GO WITH YOU.  THE MIST CAN NOT HARM THEM THEY ARE IMMORTAL.   THEY CAN HEAR GHOST PUP AND THEY ARE CHIPPED.  I RARELY HAVE TO USE MY AMULET WITH THEM SINCE THEY NEVER BOTH LEAVE ME UNGUARDED. 

NOW WHAT IS YOUR ANSWER PTG.   JUST GHOST PUP OR GHOST PUP AND A LARGE CAT ?

The work is slow and laborious.

I feel like I'm getting nowhere, but more confidant that no one is around.

My hands are bloody and bruised, but I have to keep working.

There is a satisfying tumble of several large stones, revealing a gap I may be able to squeeze through.

I begin to carefully creep my way up the barricade, wary of causing a cascade that would take me with it.

Then I hear sharp shouting.

"No, you need to show me identification!  All palace guards are bound by the civil rights of the denizens protection act to properly identify themselves- Ow! That hurt!  Now that was COMPLETELY inappropriate! Conscientious objection should always be considered and valued- HEY!  Alright. I am sorry I have to do this, but I suspect you are not a Palace Guard at all.  Now, I would never presume that anyone in a different socio-economic threshold could not acquire any position they applied for, but your uniform appears to be ill-fitting and torn.  I don't want to money shame you, or imply that you cannot take care of your uniform, but in this case-"

And Tarquin is knocked out.

The plot thickens.  Ewwwwwwwwwwww!

I stay still and silent for a full five minutes before continuing my ascent to freedom.

The gap is narrow, but my waifish figure squeezes through just in time for another crashing rockslide.

Half my remaining tutu is torn and sent down into the pile behind me.  The blood from my hands glistens on the lighter stones.  Anyone who came across this scene would assume I was crushed beneath it.

Good.  My captors thinking I'm dead buys me time.

Several unlit torches are housed upside down in a barrel full of pitch.  I take one and light it from the brazier nearby.

This was the source of light I had.  Not daylight.  Not freedom.  Just more caves.

I can see Tarquin chained to a wall, unconscious.  There is a deep pool of water in the centre of the cavern.  I quench my thirst.  It is the most beautifully pure water I have ever tasted.

There are several tunnels leading in all directions from the central chamber.

I was unconscious when I was brought here.  Tarquin was not. 

I need him if I am going to escape.

I sigh.  "God Dammit".

HAHAHAHAHA

Opel and I are busy in the kitchen trying to make as many neuron friendly foods as possible (yes, I said Neuron...that is not a typo so stop thinking bad thoughts - wow, I think I've read too may Jeny Wren posts), when a thought smacks me up-side the head.

Hey, what is Jeny's favorite food? we could make a bunch and place it in different locations to see if we can attract her attention. She found that TNT easy enough after all. 

Chocolate cake maybe?

"Mmmmmmmmmmmm cake........"

I snap back to attention.  I have more important things to attend to right now.

I need to find the key to Tarquin's shackles, wake him and convince him that we are, for now, on the same side.

I also need a new outfit.

All three must be possible, even in the bowels of the Earth.

Logically, there must be a guard station somewhere, if our kidnappers are, in fact guards. 

A glance back at my former makeshift cell.  I can see the damage done to the cave ceiling in order to create the blockade.

That was not a cell, it was my tomb.  No one was coming to feed me, or take me to my trial.  My trial was over, and I was sentenced to death.

My eyes are adjusting with more clarity now.  Several of these passageways lead to small chambers that are dead ends.  They are all cells.  Just waiting for doors that have no keys.

There are around half a dozen.  I wonder if one is planned for Tarquin.  If so, why?  He's annoying, as all ultra PC warriors are, but not a threat to anyone.

I mull over my cunning plans.

A) I wait for whoever is coming to seal Tarquin in his tomb and overpower them... with what?  I have fire, rocks... and a stalactite I could fashion into a sword.  Or is it stalagmite? Either way I'd be destroying a million years of nature's work just to stab a guy I don't know.  I think my Karma would be in the toilet after that.

B) I see if I can find a base of operations and steal the keys, free Tarquin and sneak away... In a cave I do not know, with multiple passageways and no idea which direction I should even start heading...

"Plan C, it is!"

I drop the torch close to Tarquin and pick up a sturdy rock.  The light of the flame dances upon the piton holding the chain.  I sigh.  This will certainly get someone's attention.  With a heaving breath I smash the piton as hard as I can.

It is driven further into the rock.

"AW COME ON!"

This may take a while.
