WHEN HE WAS FINISHED TALKING I GOT HIS ATTENTION. POINTED AT THE OBJECTS. AND SAID.
THEY CAN NO LONGER HERE WHAT IS SAID HERE. THE GNOME BUILDERS FOUND THESE WHEN THEY PUT IN THE NEW COFFEE AND TEA BAR.
HE LOOKED STUNNED.
AND HIS NAME IS NOT DUMBO YOU MORON IT IS BEAU. HE IS A PYGMY ELEPHANT. I WILL MAKE SURE HE IS ON ONE SIDE OF THE BOAT AND BABY IS ON THE OTHER SHE IS A PYGMY MAMMOTH.
THAT WILL BALANCE THE BOAT. NOW WHERE ARE WE TO PUT THE REST OF THE PETS. ON THE DECK OR THE HOLD. THE PONY AND GRIFFIN WILL BE ON DECK ONE WITH BEAU ONE WITH BABY.
AND EGOR IS VERY ATTACHED TO BABY WILL BE WITH HER. JUST STAY AWAY FROM BABY AND EGOR WILL NOT ACT OUT.
THE PETS, CATS AND DOGS ARE FRIENDS. THEY DO NOT FIGHT OR TRY TO EAT EACH OTHER.
JUST BE ADVISED THAT THERE WILL ALSO BE A PRIDE OF LIONS GOING WITH US. WELL BEHAVED LIONS. AND GREAT HELPERS. THEY HAVE BEEN DOING PATROLS WHILE YOU WERE GONE.
NOW IF YOU NEED A GOOD DISTRACTION WHILE WE LEAVE JUST SAY SO. I AM SURE ANNALIESE WOULD BE GLAD TO SWIFTLY GO THROUGH THE CASTLE AND DISABLE ALL THE LISTENING DEVICES.
SHE GRINNED. MORE FUN. I LOOKED AT HER. NOT JUST DISABLE THEM BUT MAYBE CAUSE THEM TO BLOW UP. I KNOW SHE LOVES TO CAUSE AS MUCH TROUBLE AS POSSIBLE. CAN SHE BLOW UP ANY ROBOT GUARDS SHE FINDS.
NOW SHE WAS ALMOST JUMPING FOR JOY. BUT ANNALIESE YOU MUST BE BACK TO THE OTHERS BEFORE SEBASTIEN CLOSES THE PORTHOLE. OR YOU WILL HAVE TO GO INSIDE OF ONE OF THE ANIMALS.
SO PTG WHAT NOW. SOME PROBLEMS SOLVED. OTHERS WILL COME UP.
I TURNED TO THE OTHERS AND SAID SHALL WE GO TO THE ENCLOSURE AND SEE TO OUR PETS. WE NEED TO GET THEM READY FOR THE MOVE.
WITH THAT I LEFT THE TEA ROOM.
I am normally a gentle soul and love things to be quiet and orderly.
So I do understand PTG's wish for order, I really do.
Sorry PTG, but this little southern belle knows what that word implies.
And, as a person who is being protected by her own "feline" nation, I am a little irked.
But again I am a gentle soul and love order. And at this moment, we need to know who are the present inmates of the Special Room and where they are without notifying the wrong people. A impromptu census so to speak.
So I wrote down my concern and attached the note to a feline messenger to deliver to PTG.
Big Kitty is happy to oblige .
(Have I been around Annaleise too long?)
I am not worried about our animal companions. Nor am I worried about the ghost players.
For Sebastien told me that the portal he found was at Delphi, and that was where he was leading the ghosts at this very moment.
And being who and what he was, he would make sure the animals arrived safely as well.
So I went back to the Record Book and back to studying the history of the Special Room.
While keeping a surreptitious eye on Big Kitty's progress.
Only here would one have a second in command that needs his own second in command to keep him out of trouble.
YOU KNOW BREEZE ANNALIESE IS NOT SUCH A BAD INFLUNCE. SHE KNOWS WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE CASTLE. SHE CAN BE A VERY BIG HELP TO GET US OUT OF HERE AND TO OUR NEW HOME. BUT SHE MUST GET THERE ALSO.

My pet raven flies into the kitchen cawing loudly, What's wrong? The farm has been destroyed by the chaos? OH NO!!! Marino and Janet made it out with a few cows and pigs and got home. Thank Goodness!!!
Okay, deep breath, at least they are safe. Not sure there would have been room for all the farm animals on the ship to tell the truth. Hopefully I can contact them again once we make it to Delphi and they can rejoin us. Gather the others and stay close. She caws again as she wings away.
Out in the dining room all is still chaos as everyone scrambles to prepare for the exodus.
I find Charlie, "The farm was destroyed but my friends managed to escape back to their home with some of the cows and pigs. If all goes well they'll join us when we are settled. I'll have to forage in Delphi for those flying chicks and other food stuffs, but at least they're safe." She is relieved. I'll bet she was wondering how we would get all those critters on the boat too!
I deposit a tray of food on the counter. "Eat up everyone, No sense wasting food and the perishables will keep best in your tummies anyway!" "Oh, and please don't forget we have to take sleepy Grim with us. I've heard so much about her from Mrs. Fletcher, I really want to meet her." I head back to the kitchen for more people and pet food.

Meanwhile .... Playingthegame's Godmother and the Genie are continuing to cajole and watch over Adrian to make sure he keeps his word about the time frame before he searches for Grim himself.
It is totally exhausting work .....If one could hear her thoughts they would hear:
"my arms are weary from wielding my wand in his direction.
The pigeons have mostly gone from the flying boat. The Genie and I remain on the steps to Atlantis --- monitoring and watching the Dark Tower. (For while Adrian remains in the Temple of Justice, he is mentally preparing his destruction .... the steps behind the Iron Knight continue to crumble!)
Oh, dear ...... I must remember to send my most faithful pigeon (for he is tired of being around the female pigeons who are driving him batty; he is ready for some real work again) .. send my most faithful pigeon to my Godson to tell him .... there was one of his friends who removed the wand from the Potion Shop and has tried to figure out how to make it work ..... I forget her name, but he will know .... anyway, the wand ONLY works in this world and from INSIDE the Potion Shop, which is soon to be destroyed. That is the reason she cannot figure out how to use it properly."
I am all ready to leave, bags packed, Buddy sleeping at my feet. I thought I needed a new destination but I have been paying attention to the others and listening in. I have decided that Delphi was the place to go. Now, I am just waiting for the word to head out with the others on our journey to our new home. My camping trip will wait until we are settled in our new home; besides, I don’t remember seeing camping gear around anywhere. Such is my luck and it would be better to go when the weather is warmer anyway.
There seems to be much concern about everyone and everything fitting into Skull Pete's ship ... for those who know Hermione Granger of Harry Potter fame, they will know about the Undetectable Extension Charm. She used it on her "bag" that she carried when she, Harry, and Ron fled the "wedding scene."
Basically, while the outside of an item remains unchanged, the inside can carry all manner of things AND the weight of that item is not affected to the carrier. The Genie has contacted Hermione and been granted permission to use such a charm on Skull Pete's ship.
As passengers, items, and animals enter, they will find space equal to their needs. The ship will merely sit in the water as it would if it were empty. No one will know of their boarding as long as they are discrete.
