I woke the next morning surrounded by my furry children and we have a moment of petting and kisses and a love nip from Wickerbat. I do what I need to to get ready for the day before heading out for breakfast. I send the animals to the compound and head to get breakfast. There is a note and food. Haha, reheat and eat; I thought that I was the only one to use that. I make a plate and heat the food while brewing a fresh pot of coffee.
After breakfast, go grab my book and sit next to a window to read. Later that morning, Katt called a meeting and now I own the Tea Room.
“Thank you, Katt! I will take well care of everyone.”
There are goodbyes and congratulations all around before everyone goes back to what they need to do.
Time to make schedules and do inventory.
1) Inventory while thinking about lunch
2) Make lunch and plan Dinner
3) Clean up and plan breakfast
4) set alarm and learn to get up early
5) rinse and repeat
Off to the cold storage to start.
Is it true that you are leaving us? But then instead of a realm we will turn into a county.
i do not know what has been going on but obviously discord has reared its head.
take care and have fun while I try to discover what has been the motive for the desertions.??
It is true, Di, Katt hs left u but have no fear, I will mange the Tea Room quite well. No need to inveterate The desertions, they are the result of outside influences.
I gathered! Even so, I will now turn in, wishing you a peaceful night, and see you tomorrow
NO NEED, MISS KATT HAD THE GNOMES PUT IN PROPER BATHS AND PLUMBING IN THE TEA ROOM. HOT SHOWERS AND EVERY THING. THIS TEA ROOM HAS EVERY CONVENIENCE YOU WILL NEED. THE ANIMAL ENCLOUSURE HAS RUNNING WATER. HOT AND COLD. BATHS NEED THESE THEY ALL GET BATHS WELL THE CATS NOT SO MUCH. BUT THE REST DO.
I HEAR KATT'S CALL BUT MUST REMAIN WHERE I AM. SO I LISTEN TO HER THOUGHTS. OK, SO SHE IS GOING I WISH HER WELL. AME HAS AGREED TO TAKE OVER THE TEA ROOM. I AM STILL WAITING FOR THE PIXIU'S I WILL GO TO SEBASTIEN WHEN I HAVE SPOKEN TO THEM. I WILL STAY WITH SEBASTIEN TILL HE HAS RECOVERED.
I WAKE EARLY AND HEAD TO THE ELVEN SANCTUARY TO GET MORE SUPPLIES FOR UPSET TUMMIES. THERE ARE BOUND TO BE MORE AS THE CASTLE DENIZENS CONTINUE TO FORCE FEED CERTAIN PETS IN THE HOPE OF OBTAINING AN IRON CHEST.
NOW TO THE LIBRARY. I CHECK ON SEBASTIEN. HE IS RESTING QUIETLY WITH A NUMBER OF FELINES RESTING NEARBY.
GRIM’S EYES ARE STILL OPEN AND SEEM TO BE LOOKING AT A COMPUTER MONITOR. I READ WHAT IS ON IT. THE ANSWER IS SO SIMPLE. GRIM HASN’T REACHED A FULL RECOVERY BECAUSE OF A NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCY FROM ALL THE TIME SHE WAS NOT ADEQUATELY FED. I WAS GIVING HER A BALANCED NUTRITIONAL DIET BUT HADN’T CONSIDERED WHAT NUTRITION SHE MIGHT HAVE HAD BEFORE COMING INTO MY CARE. I QUICKLY RUN TO THE KITCHEN AND GET THE NEEDED FOODS FROM AME. GRIM REACHES FULL AWARENESS VERY QUICKLY. I CATCH HER UP ON OUR DEPARTURE TO DELPHI AS THE OLD REALM WAS PERMANENTLY SEALED AND FROZEN IN TIME. GRIM, I AM WORRIED ABOUT CAP, PTG, AND ROO. THEY HAVE SET OFF TO DO BATTLE IN AN UNKNOWN REALM. I DON’T KNOW IF THEY ARE AWARE THAT IT IS SIMILAR BUT NOT THE SAME JUST AS THIS REALM IS SIMILAR BUT NOT THE SAME.
HEY! HOW DID THAT OBSCURE NUTRITIONAL ARTICLE APPEAR ON THE MONITOR. SHE GRINS AND TELLS ME SHE DEVELOPED A NEW ABILITY WHILE UNABLE TO MOVE. SHE CAN OPERATE A COMPUTER WITH JUST HER MIND. OH, THAT EXPLAINS THE WHIRRING NOISES. DO YOU WISH TO REJOIN THE BATTLE AND ARE YOU UP TO IT? SHE SAYS YES. I WILL HAVE CINDER TAKE YOU TO YOUR FRIENDS AND RETRIEVE MY TESTING DUMMY. GRIM – TESTING DUMMY???? I CREATED A REPLICA TO TRY TO DETERMINE THE SOURCE OF THE WHIRRING. FROST TOOK OFF WITH IT THINKING IT WAS YOU. SHE LAUGHED – IN HER OPINION DRAGONS ARE NOT AS SMART AS RABBITS. I TAKE HOLD OF GRIM AND USE MY BRACELET TO GET BOTH OF US OUT OF THE SECRET LIBRARY. CINDER PICKS US UP AND FLIES UPWARD TO THE SANCTUARY. WAIT, CASH AND WICKERBAT WERE LEFT BEHIND. I’M ASSUMING YOU WANT TO TAKE THEM WITH YOU. VIGOROUS HEAD NODDING IS MY ANSWER. CINDER SWEEPS OVER TO AME AND PICKS UP THE VERY EXCITED FERRETS.
CINDER LEAVES ME IN THE SANCTUARY AND DISAPPEARS INTO ANOTHER REALM WHICH I HAVE NOT YET VISITED. IT SEEMS ONLY MINUTES WHEN CINDER RETURNS WITH THE DUMMY. HE IS DEJECTED BECAUSE HE WAS UNABLE TO LOCATE HOOTIE FOR A VISIT BUT TELLS ME PTG, CAP AND ROO ARE SAFE FOR THE MOMENT. IT IS ALWAYS BITTERSWEET WHEN A LONG TERM PATIENT IS DISCHARGED. I HOPE GRIM’S NEW FOUND ABILITY HELPS KEEP HER SAFE.
Inventory wasn’t really that. Cold storage and cool storage both had a lot to work with so no problem there right now. On to the kitchen pantry. Hmmm, lots to work with here so no problems either. Time to start lunch.
As I worked around the kitchen, Doc came in with Cinder and Grim. I finally briefly got to meet her but they were here for Cash and Wickerbat as the 3 of them were returning to the others. It was a tearful goodbye and then they were gone. I wish them well and hope they visit.
Back to lunch, with so few of us now, I set up a buffet lunch; a lplatter of different cheeses, a platter of different sliced meats, some lettuce, sliced tomatoes, pickles and a couple of salads. Drinks, iced coffe, iced tea, ice water and cold fruit juice. Hot coffee for Charlie if she joins us. Saddened, I picked a quiet corner with a window view for my lunch and made myself eat.
Then, it was back to the kitchen to clean up. Afterward, I popped in to see how Sebastien was doing. Charlie told me not so good. I told her I am now in control of the tea room and that lunch is served. “You go get something to eat and I will bring Sebastien some food.”
Charlie reluctantly agreed and I teleported us back. I made up a tray for Sebastien and popped back over. I made sure he ate before falling back to sleep. As I s at there with him, I remembered my letter to Pixiu and realized that I hadn’t gotten an answer. That was when Charlie returned.
“Charlie, have you heard from The Pixius?”
”No” she said.”Why do you ask?”
”Neither have I. I wrote them a note but it hasn’t been answered.” Pause for consideration, “I hope nothing has happened. I need to get back. I will see you later.” I pop back to the tea room.
I find that I have some time before working on dinner so I pop over to my tent. There, I pack my stuff up that I want to have to use then fis the tent flaps so they won’t open so easily. I can’t say goodbye to my forrest home so I say a see you later. This place will be perfect for a secondary forage sight. It is still good for when I befell like getting away for awhile.
My next stop is the animal compound to get Buddy. He comes running to me and is very happy to see me. I take him back to the tea room with me. He won’t need to stay there anymore now that I am in charge.
i put my stuff in our room then head to the kitchen. I grab a large pillow along the way for Buddy and make him a bed out of the way where I tell him to stay. He only stays after I give him a treat. Then, I put the box of food from my tent in the pantry for future use.
Time to work on dinner.
I ATE SOME OF THE SALAD AND MADE A SANDWICH FROM AME’S AMPLE BUFFET. I SIPPED ICED TEA WHILE DWELLING ON THE SIMILARITIES AND DIFFERENCES OF THIS REALM FROM THE OLD. THE GAME IS CLEARLY BEING PLAYED HERE BUT DOESN’T SEEM TO BE GENERATING DUST BUNNIES. I HEAR PLAYERS GROANING AT THE DICE TABLE IN SALTY’S INN BUT SO FAR I HAVEN’T RUN INTO SKULL PETE. WHY ARE THERE GODS IN THIS MC REALM? THERE IS MUCH TO PONDER ABOUT OUR NEW HOME.
I FINISH MY ICED TEA AND WALK TO THE ANIMAL ENCLOSURES TO FEED AND TEND TO THE PETS SINCE CHARLIE IS CARING FOR SEBASTIEN. NOW THAT MOST OF THE CASTLE DENIZENS HAVE ACHIEVED THEIR 5 IRON CHESTS THE HEDGEHOG LOOKS MORE COMFORTABLE. I APOLOGIZE TO BABY FOR CALLING HER A HIM BUT I AM NOT LIFTING THE TAIL ON A MAMMOTH TO CHECK THE SEX UNLESS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY.
I PASS TIAN LU ON MY WAY TO THE SECRET LIBRARY FOR SOME NIGHT TIME READING. I LET HIM KNOW THAT CINDER REPORTS CAP, ROO, AND PTG ARE SAFE SO THERE IS NO NEED TO BE ON GUARD FOR THEM. CHARLIE HASN’T LEFT SEBASTIEN’S SIDE BUT HE STILL ONLY WAKENS FOR SHORT PERIODS. I SEE THE SADNESS IN TIAN LU’S EYES. I KNOW. I HOPE HE IS BETTER SOON. SO MUCH SADDNESS LATELY.
I DECIDE ON BORROWED CRIME AND HEAD BACK TO THE TEA ROOM.
