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.
I have asked Charlie to talk to Klothilde about getting all the hoofed animals feet trimmed. Many are overdue. I suspect some will not be cooperative.
Was glad to hear the truth about Grim and reminded Wickerbat and Cash that they could live with me. Come to think about it, those 2 have practically become my pets, though I prefer furry children.
Jenny Wren was another issue but after reading the material and talking about it, we came to the only logical conclusion that we could.
As I hadn’t eaten yet, once I could relax and Doc had to get back to caring for the sick and injured, I got my coffee and breakfast.
After breakfast, I popped over to the library, there were some herbs that I wanted to look up and needed to find the right book before heading out to forage for some wild plant foods.
Antio Gia Tora,
Tinker Belle and Luna from the paradisical isle of Capri, where I had to stop to pick up my darling parrot Sijui, whom I left to winter there, while I go skiing on the pole to help feeding the reindeers.
I expect to get a steamer to take me to Delphi in the next weeks to see if I can help with the Wren's miserable non-state. I never thought tht she would be heartless!
See you all very soon, ta ta
Well, Klothilde has a couple of centuries experience with unruly children and animals.
Before she came to my grandmother's household she had an affair with a lion tamer from a worldfamous circus. I certainly always stay out of the way of her whip. She learned to use it while she was living in the Argentines with a renowned gaucho.
So please doc do not worry about that. However it would be nice to find a piano tuner, my instrument is always out of intervals after a change of hemisphere.
Sebastien dismounted from Pixiu in front of the cavern. He unloaded the scrolls he had borrowed from the Muses on Mount Parnassus. He was continuing the work breeze had started by transcribing the documents into the laptop and then translating the documents in to English. He found that keeping his mind busy helped him get through the nights. Although Pixiu was wise and a very good conversationalist and the animals were his constant companions, he felt alone. He began to enter the cavern, only to be stopped by Pixiu’s mate.
“I am sorry Master Sebastien, but you cannot enter.”
Sebastien was surprised. He looked at the Pixiu, who now had an ashamed expression. He then turned to the other Pixiu, who now also had the same expression.
He was not angry at the Pixiu. Obviously, someone had asked them to keep him out. Of course, he could dematerialize and enter and the Pixiu would be unable to stop him. But the Pixiu was ancient and wise creatures. They were not pets, they were protectors and equal to himself. The only reason they called him Master was out of respect and because he was their leader, not their owner. The respect was mutual on Sebastien’s part.
He bowed towards them. “Tian Lu. Bi Xie,” he said, using their formal names. “I am not angry with you. If you do not want me to enter, so be it.”
“But I need access to my possessions and the laptop from my room. Also, I need access to the library. So I think it is about time I have a conversation with a certain group of ladies. So if you do not mind, please take me to the Tea Room.
