As The Queen holds us under her wing and blows her magical smoke to help us calm and stop crying so heartbroken we can not breath.
The Queen has to do it again because we still are to shaken to even breath but we calm a bit and the tears slow to a trickle,
My mind my thoughts fly on the wind to Frost who is not far frozen to his spot from hearing the news and is being torn between obeying his riders orders to find PTG's Owl or return to be with his rider.
I feel his body and hear his thoughts and know he is torn,, so in the calm minute given to us by The Queen I connect with Frost and say My Loyal One this a great time of pain hurt sorrow disbelieve heart break here but you must find that Owl and give him my letter to PTG it is more imperative now that PTG gets that letter and he protects the ones in The Special Room he MUST make sure that ALL the tunnels are checked hourly for if the Trolls with such Evil we have ever faced can attack and kill our scout *** Apollo and Shadow along with her three Elvin escorts and they can not get through the Dragon Frozen Dome I am more sure now what ever the Evil it is will try from underground .
In the letter to PTG I have wrapped an Amulet for him and instructions in it's use so he MUST get that letter like yesterday ,, if you can not find that Owl then open a small hole enough for you to drop that package to PTG and refreeze and return to me.
The tear flow again and I grab IMP and we bury our heads into the chest of The Queen

I have been so deep in thought that I had fallen into a light sleep.

I sit up and find that I am in a darkened Mr Fletcher’s Tea Room with all the lights out and alone.

This is most unusual to say the least.

There is some light outside from the lit pumpkins that the trick or treat kids down by the moat are carrying in order to trade

On the Tea Room door is a large notice which I cannot read as it is back to front!

But by using a mirror I can get the gist of what it is saying, and explaining why the Tea Room is closed for the day.

I must have a word with my partners when I catch up with them. It is very antisocial to leave me in the dark (in more ways than one!).

It is then that I see what appears to be a bundle of cinders on the far table.

I am surprised that my most excellent broom has not swept it up in order to keep the place clean. That is one of its main duties.

Then this blackened and charred heap moves!

A very squeaky “toot” emerges from one end!

It attempts to rise on what I now see are two spindly legs all bandaged up but collapses back onto the table.

It is my pet owl!!

Who has done this dastardly deed?

Who has access to a flamethrower that can zap birds?

I sit back down again and feel a rustIe of paper in my pocket.

Strange?

I pull it out and there is an almost illegible scrawl on it with the following information for me:
Found: slightly wounded owl (Don't worry. First degree burns are being treated.) If this owl is your faithful companion, please send the GSD or piglet to find Doc. They will instinctively know where I am. I will send Puff or his Lady Dragon to check back in a couple of days. They apologize for Cinder's accident. She is still learning to control her fiery breath and got excited when she saw the owl.

OMG! It was on a mission and is a casualty of war.

But why?

At this moment, high in the sky there is a flash of light as the heavens open up.

Is it a comet? Is it a meteor?

Or is it Murk, having yet one more attempt to finish me off?

However, there is no following bolt of lightning to sear me. Instead an envelope flutters own into my hands.

On it I read Official Documents.
Below it says: please read immediately with my name underneath in beautiful copperplate handwriting!

Only my partner Cap’n Bob (I think) has such powers to order such an event, so its contents must be from him and must be very important.

At this moment there is another flash of light from above and as darkness reappears once more, I am showered in descending icicles.

Only the Cap’n’s dragon Frost has such abilities to do such mysterious things, so all is well

Or is it?

I open the envelope

PTG, I am afraid that a certain very "Bad Monkey"... .... owes you an Apology don't you Egor?!... ...You see PTG, Egor thought it would be funny to after you fell asleep ,.. ... just "Decorate" You and your surrounding area in Halloween Decorations so that you'd blend into the Tea Room... ...This is why "Your Partners" unwittingly left without you and also why Mrs Fletcher along with Bing closed up and unknowingly locked you in the Tea Room over night...Don't you worry about Ego's punishment PTG.. ... Bing and I feel that if it's alright with you..... it should be You yourself that doles out that Mischievous Primate sentence since your the injured party.... ...

Riddler dear, Mrs Fletcher and Bing are sending your way a Gallon of Her own brand of hot Herb Tea with several dollops of "Honey Rum" added.. ....Also plenty of Home made Chicken Noodle Soup Guaranteed to help your dear Wife and Mother in Law feeling Spiffy soon...

WOW! That was some party, Halloween or not...Mrs. Fletcher knows how to do it right. And that crazy, old timey music! I think it was from a vinyl album....you could hear the distinct background of scratches from many play times. The Monster Mash....so much fun.

Clean-up was a breeze and all went to sleep it off.

I made myself get going early. I needed to figure some way to get the mechanical fish back to town. That reminds me...I need to contact the editor of the Cloud City Times and Tribune to have the paper update the Ad in the Classifieds.

I should send off a note before I leave.

Dear Editor: Just an update on the submarine: what I hoped to be a submarine turned out to be a mechanical fish...quite a bit smaller! I think it is remote-controlled. I would feel so BAD if you were publishing Fake news because of me. I suppose there could be a larger vessel there still, but I have not encountered it yet.

So.......off to get the big fishy!

I left the dagnabbed thing by the side of the lane. I rolled it off to the side, trying to keep it out of the way of any late night travelers. Now I have to try again to pull the silly thing back down the dusty roadbed.

I started my short trek to retrieve the ‘fishy fish NOT in a brook’. I haven’t decided why I need it but I want to find out who is using these electronic devices and how they use them. It could be the CEO and his praetorian guard, it could be Murk, or it could be another character in our little group that has it in for us.

Finally!!! I made it to the spot where the darn fishy fish is supposed to be....but—as you may have guessed and to my irritation, it is nowhere in sight...even with my glasses off.

Okay....taking deep breaths but that just makes me cough. Stop that! Shading my eyes to see farther...your open palm saluting your forehead has a magical power to help a person see a greater distance than with eyes unshaded.

Nope...shade/no shade....sheesh! There is a little positive note here...the hard ground is covered with belly flowers. They are certainly not familiar, meaning I don’t know their Latin names or the common names.

The way to appreciate belly flowers is to recline, flat, on your belly and observe the fragile little blossoms. It is also the only way to take a close-up with your camera. Too bad I have no cell phone or a camera. Figures!

I do notice while I am a whisper away from the ground, some of the fragile flowers have been crushed and mutilate beyond recognition as a flower. I can only differentiate the color from the green background. Aha! Some oaf trampled the flowers while stealing my big fish!

Sooooo ...someone found it and either reclaimed it or thought it to be a unique gewgaw they had to have!!!

Pushing myself up to kneeling, then stopping to identify the sound of a slight swish of fabric against fabric, I can’t see from where the sound came quick enough.

I try to stand up.

By then my head is covered in a cloth sack and I feel my arms being tied down against my sides.

I have never had to scream in fright before this and when I try to let out the best screech I can make, nothing!!!!

I realize I cannot speak nor can I see any ........

I sit in the Tea Room trying to attract the attention of Angel but she is celebrating with a rather large drink in her hand & possibly not her first today.A crowd surrounds her & they are all laughing,something about beating a frog or a witch & I have no idea why that would be funny.
I need to attract her attention & my patience is nearly exhausted. Finally I see her head towards the bathroom with Grim In tow.Perfect.I follow & having checked we are the only ones there I tell of my concerns.

"There is talk of a Doc roaming the Castle.I fear she is a spy sent by the CEO & part of a cunning plan to capture us all.We must waste no time & investigate" We cannot bother PTG he is to worried about his owl.
Grims' ears go back & she frowns,Angel looks intrigued,must be the reporter instinct.
Having gained their undivided attention I continue.
"I have a plan to find out who she really is" Grim shakes her head & replies "She must be ok,she fixed PTG's owl." A little frustrated at the interruption I point out that none of us actually saw her administer any vetinary skills & we cannot trust anyone with so much danger lurking around us. We must get going we have an appointment to keep.

As we walk I outline my plan."Grim,We need you to act sick,perhaps you could limp or something"
But Roo there is nothing wrong with my paw" Getting quite exasperated I raise my voice a little & say "I know that but other than bashing a little critter we have no other option,so start practicing a limp".My determination to succeed in this mission has finally registered with my partners.My arm aches from carrying the sack of Exclusive Food for Poppets Dragons & I'm relieved to reach the Forbidden Tower.

"Now Angel,you take Grim up to the surgery & I'll snoop in the writing desk & try to keep Poppet distracted for as long as possible".Up the stairs they trot & I sit for a moment,thankful that the dragon isn't around.
I open every drawer search inside each one but the only evidence I can find is dust.I must remind PTG to send his broom in here.

Suddenly I hear two strange screams that frighten the life out of me.Oh dear what have I done,what if I have sent them into a perilous situation. I rush across the room intending to almost fly up the stairs when Grim whizzes passed me & out the door.She is quickly followed by Angel crying out "I am so sorry,so very sorry"
Poppet is three paces behind telling Angel that it's ok,it's happened before.It is then that I notice she has a red mark on her cheek that looks very much like a paw print. Angel grabs my arm & in seconds we are outside & there is no sign of Grim.

I'm not sure I want to know but I ask Angel "what on earth went on in there?"
Angel,still a bit shaky replies"Well after examining Grims paw poppet said nothing was broken & she was to rest for a few days.Before I knew what was happening she approached Grim from behind with a syringe & said she was due her shots.Grim bucked & POW..her hind legs came up & she accidently caught Poppet on the cheek.I think you are in Grims bad books Roo"

Quickly I point out "I think you are mistaken Angel,you were the one in the surgery not me"

"Now Puff, everything is ok. You don't need to protect me. I'm sure Grim didn't mean to kick me. She was just surprised by the shot. I think we can safely say her paw will be fine. We need to find the hootie owl and see how she's doing. Puff, you will have to wait to visit the islands. We must take care of Cinder's oops first."

Dragons can be such difficult pets, so hot tempered sometimes.

Off I go to the Tea Room. I've heard it is a very social place but the only one I see is hootie owl. She's not healing as fast as I'd like so I'll need to change her bandages. "Puff, while I'm changing these go to the armour and banners for a mouse and the doll showcase for a rat so I can feed our patient." Puff mumbles and grumbles about leaving me alone in this strange place but I shoo him on his way.

I gently pick up hootie and coo to her as I remove the bandages and clean her burns. Eventually she tucks her head under my neck and begins to coo. "Such a good hootie owl. We'll have food for you soon. Look, here's Puff with a mouse and a rat." Hootie sees Puff and gets ruffled and nervous. "Hootie, Puff won't hurt you. He's an adult dragon able to control his fiery breath as long as he hasn't gotten into the rare plant and mushrooms. Cinder didn't mean to singe you. She's only a couple of months old and is learning slowly." I hold the mouse up to Hootie and she inhales it. I take the rat from Puff and Hootie quickly eats it and looks very full. Poor Hootie is shifting around and can't get comfortable. She must be in pain. I send Puff to the islands to get rare plant and mushrooms to make a pain relieving drink. I give Puff strict orders not to taste them and remind him he is on a mission of mercy. He hangs his head before flying off because he is partly responsible for Cinder's uncontrolled enthusiasm on seeing Hootie.

I sit down to wait with Hootie wondering if anyone will show up.

"Wow Puff, you're back quickly. Hootie will be more comfortable soon." I don't want to cook in someone else's kitchen without their permission so I pull out my special pot which doesn't melt with dragon fire and have Puff heat water to soften the mushrooms. Hootie sleeps quietly as I stir. After 30 minutes, the mushrooms are soft so I add rare plant and simmer for another 5 minutes. I take the pot from Puff and allow it to cool. Once it has cooled, I wake Hootie and slowly syringe some into her beak. She doesn't like it but seems to know I am here to help her. I wait 30 minutes and can see the mixture kick in. It will stimulate her immune system and relieve the pain. I leave the extra on the table with instructions to give Hootie 2.5 ml (1/2 tsp) every 12 hours. On the note I add a line that says people take 1 tsp every 12 hours.

Puff and I head back to the Mrs. in a hidden area of the Forbidden Tower. I have kept a little rare plant and sugar as a reward for Puff. I hope his Mrs. isn't angry with me.

I slip into the Tea Room and find it empty at 6:24am which is not unusual . I walk over to the CD system to find my signed CD copy of Bobby Picket's Monster Mash I slipped in at the Halloween Party . I found it where Grim had placed it out of sight under some old newspapers that are used under Hootie's perch .

I take the cd and some of the papers and go over to see how Hootie is fairing . She is sound asleep and doesn't seem to be in pain now......good . I change the paper under the perch so PTG'S broom doesn't get all matted trying to clean all the little hooty's .

Then I spy a sheet of paper on the table it's from that DOC that treated Hootie when they first came in and it gives instructions on how much of the pain relief tea to give the little Owl or a person for that matter so I leave it for her care giver or owner, but , I take note just in case.

So I'm just hanging around in the castle, just trying to complete everything before the event ends

When I get a text from Farentio...

Apparently he needed a bone whip because he wanted his weapon to look cool.

Like dude, if you want a bone whip so damn bad, come and get it yourself

Aside from Annabelle and Arabella, and my family, the people in the castle are a bunch of bozos, so he'd fit right in

By the way, don't as me who or how I know Farentio...he's kind of a freskshow

As I recline in my seat at the Tea Room’s corner table with my freshly brewed Flat White I think over about all the recent goings-on that have occurred.

The Halloween Party turned out to be very successful with everyone happy and taking part.

Some of the costumes were very dashing although I did notice that Roo’s was an exact duplicate of my Frog Witch avatar and so quite scary.

It is only when I happen to glance in the mirror and catch sight of my own make over that I realize that someone will be in trouble when I catch whoever did this.

I sit back as my coffee is now getting cold and both hear and feel the crackle of paper in my pocket

Oh dear!

I had completely forgotten about the message that descended on me from the heavens sent to me before the celebrations began.

I take it out and, on opening, find a strange engraved amulet with shining letters on it.

It reads “[b]attach immediately and do not remove![/b]”.

It has been wrapped in a letter from Cap’n Bob.

This tells me that I now have a communication device that can relay anything to the other realm if they are listening in. ALL of them as it is not discriminating unless you give it specific instructions.

At last!

I can chat with my partner.

The letter goes on to say that the powers of evil are now ever present throughout, gathering strength and extremely desirous of taking over OUR realm

But Murk, Arabella and their ungodly cohorts, Trolls and other infamous creatures can no longer use the holes in the fabric as they are now sealed.

So they will use the underground pathways.

The Cap’n instructs me to guard and watch over all the tunnels for signs of activity and the moment any occur to communicate the matter to him immediately. They have the weapons and skills to conquer these incursions.

He ends his letter with the comment;
glad to be back here at long last!


As I reflect on the letter’s contents, it is then that I see several of the others chatting to each other in sotto voce tones.

Why?

I am just about to go to Angel as she is the fountain of all gossip when I notice one of them is absent.

DD has vanished once more and evidently was last seen prone on the grass by the moat.

Strange!

Well since none of them seem to have the answer to this, time to go down to the moat and have a look for myself.

Ah yes!

The Trick or Treat kids are still active on the far side so I wander over there with a few spare candies that have ‘accidentally’ fallen off my brooms bristles.

Candy for information!

They all eagerly start talking at once.

After calming them down (well the candies help as they chew into them) I gather that DD had been walking in the moat and grappling with underwater beasties!

She had dragged one of these to the bank of the moat, and then gone back up the hill to the Castle.

While she was gone a party of military type men went over to the spot where she had been and whilst some of them carted off a large yellow lump, others got twigs and grass and covered themselves until they were hidden from sight.

DD returned back to the spot where she had previously been and when lying down on the grass had been grabbed by the camouflaged men.

They too headed back until out of sight with a gagged and bound DD!

Oh dear!

Never a dull moment!

I am finally able to return, I won't go into it now, but when more of us are together. I did get the chicken soup, and accoutrements, given to me on the way to where I THOUGHT, my wife and mominlaw were, but low, and behold, I could not find that place. So now that my new commrads, fellow otherly worlders, have reunited me with my bestesteses buddy, and partner, I am glad I left Tyree here to get used to being here, our apparent new home, for a while, to let all get used to his warmth, intelligence and faithfullness, and for him to get to know everyone, feel at home, and thuslyusly, being at his top and utmost. I can tell you I am glad I did, because.... In thinking I knew where my wife and mominlaw were, I found out I didn't, as a matter of fact, I believe I found out how I got here, and how I got the note on them being sick. I need help in finding them, because where this so called "note" came from was at the foot of what I will tell you about when more of us are together. In very short, it was a free standing door, just a door and frame that did not move, locked, but key openable, which I did, being and expert at picking locks! On the other side, when opened, was a a beach, a gorgeous beach, but down by the waters edge, there were these large animals, which immediately started running up towards the door, or sound of it opening. When they got closer, I noticed at least several things, they looked like giant lobsters, they had one (right) gigantic, razor sharp pincher, and one regular lobster looking pincher on the left.They were moving steadily, while snapping the razor claw rapidly, and actually talking, I think, or least it sounded more like talking, than just making noise, and we're repeating something that sounded like" Dadachick, Dadadum, YumYumYum" it was extremely unnerving, whacky, scary, and unreal, thuslyusly causing me to slam the door as hard as I could, before they reached me. I could not move, talk, just stare and try to stop my brains whirling out of control. In my mind, I thought of these as "Lobstrosities".That is when I noticed that, even though being slammed with all my might, the door never moved one speck. Could my family and I have stumbled through this, or ONE of these if there are more? And is my family really sick, or have they been sucked back through by the forces of evilweevelness? I will stop babbling now, and we can discuss this all later, when we are more together. Till then, friends, I will lay back and TRY to rest.
