Oh now I see that Roo isn’t really shaking her finger at Salty. No, she is shaking all over with laughter

Well maybe, but only just maybe, I was a little hard on the gnomes in their, um, enhanced, merriment.

Right, time for some of that velvet ale — if there is any left that is

The tunnel, as we go further in, looks less like a tunnel and more like an abandoned service hallway. Music crackles over a sound system badly in need of repair. It's not a song I'm familiar with, but I can just make out something about "a green one and a pink one and a blue one and a yellow one."

Is this a new plot regarding the pills?! I've worked so hard these past months to wean everyone off them. PTG is always suspicious of the Castle CEO…. but PTG himself just went back to the Hospital Wing to hide under his bed for a while. That suddenly seems highly suspicious too.

I've got to find a new computer terminal as soon as possible, see if I can stop this. I turn to DD to tell her to hurry, but she is holding her hands over her ears, humming loudly and rocking back and forth.

This is sooo not good.

As Roo, Elsa and I are about to approach Mrs. Fletcher's Tea Room, out of the corner of my eye, I just barely make out Grim and DD heading toward the hill by the moat. So, being the curious type, I tell Roo and Elsa to go on without me as I'm so tired after playing barkeep and just want to get some rest.

Then, I hightail it after Grim and DD to see what they're up to! Suddenly, I see them disappear through a hidden opening into a tunnel and start making their way further in. I cautiously follow, unnoticed, when seemingly out of nowhere music starts playing and the tunnel looks more like an abandoned service hallway. But, Grim seems determined to keep going, taking DD with her. Seriously?!

So, what to do? Do I continue following them, in which case I should make my presence known in case I can help in some way. The problem is, I have a gut feeling there may be trouble around the corner!

Okay, my mind is made up. I beat a hasty retreat and go in search of PTG to let him know what's happening, and see what he thinks we should do. After all, he is second in command while Cap'n Randy is away, so he needs to know and come up with a cunning plan if something is awry........

From the relative discomfort of lying on the floor under my hospital bed in the Special Room, even with a pillow for my head removed from the HOS repository, I cannot help but wonder what is going on in the outside world.

This wondering produces dust bunnies.

These dust bunnies gather in my nose and start to tickle.

This tickling soon becomes a full-blown ACHOOOOO!

I sense that my broom, at rest alongside me under the bed, gives a quiet chuckle (if brooms can chuckle).

This wondering becomes an obsession!

WATCH THIS SPACE!

As my very sensitive nose calms down, I find that I have in my sneezing spasm collapsed the bed on top of me!

I then hear voices just outside my room door.

My broom nudges me and I sense in my mind that it is cautioning me to remain still and silent.

“I tell you I heard someone is in there”

“No, that can’t be right. The room was empty when we looked earlier and no-one has found the most wanted criminal yet”

“I think we should inform the Captain of the Guard that there is someone here”

“And risk getting the night shift in the tunnels again?”

“No way! We just keep quiet and go about our duties”

The two voices, obviously of my mortal enemies, recede away from the door, which they have carelessly left open.

All of a sudden out of the corner of my eye, I detect a sideways movement coming towards me.

Now who can this be?

Two large eyes meet mine and I hear a most welcome sound.

“Toot. Toot!” ?

Still confined beneath the bed, all I can do is give a weak smile and tell my trusty pet, who now seems to have recovered from its contact with the dragon, to get help from my partners as soon as possible.

“Toot, toot!” and it hops back out of the door.?

All I can now do is wait for rescue.

My phone displays coordinates that do not match up against the known Castle floor plan. That might suggest we've gotten into an old maintenance hallway once used and now forgotten by the Developers themselves, no longer necessary as this section of the MC universe is long since up and running.

My ear twitches: the sound of footsteps rapidly diminishes down the tunnel. The song about pink and blue and yellow and green ends, and "Small World" begins. DD moans and slumps to one side.

That settles it. We need better preparation before we can explore further.

I hoist DD over my shoulder and stagger back the way we came.

Once more I hear voices in the corridor approaching rapidly.

Once more I catch a glimpse of a small feathered friend as a large pair of eyes closes in on my VERY sensitive nose.

But this time their owner begins to hop up and down, obviously trying to catch the attention of the persons who are chatting to each other.

I cannot see a thing and in my anxiety a flurry of dust bunnies surround me!

I WILL NOT SNEEZE!

Which of course is the last thing I should be thinking of just now, in case the enemy has returned.

Oh no!

ACHOOOOO!!!!

My bed once more rises slightly and then descends flattening me into the floor.

My owl hops out of the way having been blown into the corner of the room by my sneeze!

I then hear giggling???

This is followed by the rustling of shot silk or taffeta and two pairs of slender ankles hover close to my twitching nose.

Suddenly my iron bedstead is heaved off me and I am once more free to do mayhem!

I turn to my saviors

As I rise to greet my friends and partners my chest begins to burn!

What is the problem?

A heart attack?
(which would not be unknown in someone of my years!)

I put my hand down to probe and yelp!

OUCHHHHHHH!

It is the amulet my partner Cap'n Bob gave to me before he left for the other Realm

It is on fire.

In my head I get a very familiar feminine whisper interspersed with dulcet ringing of silver bells:

"I think you had better answer that!"

So I very tentatively stroke the small throbbing piece of gold and my mind is blown by a cacophony of expletives from a VERY familiar voice!!

All I can mange is a very weak: "Hi!" (whilst thinking 'what's up doc?')

Waking up while being flopped around on a shoulder is disconcerting especially when some sort of mind control music is attacking one’s brain. I can’t quite place the melody or the lyrics..... Going ‘Round the World? No, that’s not it. Coming ‘Round the Mountian? No. ‘Round the World of Dancing Dolls?

NOOOOO! I can’t think about it. It will have to remain a Small...tickle until I can think clearly.

I need to walk on my own.

I am being carried, actually, flopped against a furry pelt of soft white rabbit fur. Struggling to have Grim set me down, she loses her balance, and we both fall to the floor in a dingy hallway.

Of course, we pick ourselves up and start all over again...this time I am walking on my own two feet. The thought makes me look at Grim’s large, furry feet. What happened to your feet Grim????? She now has furless feet, still large, but the feet are attached to legs going on to her ??knees?? Rabbits have knees???

She starts to explain ...something about discarded Halloween costume parts....but before she has fully explained, we both turn toward what sounded like a LOUD
ACHOOOOO!!!!

Peeking into the nearest open door we see that one of the old rickety iron beds with a moth-eaten mattress has collapsed.... trapping a pair of legs and a pair of arms. I sure hope there is a body attached!

Stepping into the musty space, I try to breathe but the air is not only musty smelling but it is dusty too. There are musty-dusty bunnies scattered all over the floor but most are around the collapsed bed. We look at each other and walk to the bed.

I notice PTG’s owl in the corner, covered with dust bunnies and then see that PTG is the body with the legs and arms flailing about.

Grim grabs an end of the cot and I grab the other.

With a heave-ho, the bed is thrust away from the pitiful, paillard of PTG. Even though he is squished, he seems okay. He does seem to be talking to himself, though. He is looking at his chest and said “Hi!” to it.

Grim is shaking her head. I lean to help him up, but his bothersome broom, also smashed but none-the-worse-for-wear is there to help him.

Grim has removed the furless legs and feet and finds somewhere on her person to tuck them. I wonder how many pockets she has to her?

I am ready to leave this room before I give into my urge to find a dust cloth!

Over the Halloween and Thanksgiving holidays, the slightly wacky inhabitants of the Special Room have been flitting here and there, carrying on busy-ness projects. All are gathered, hoping to figure out or listen to, plans to get a grip on the CEO and/or any other bodies attempting to do away with us in some fashion unbecoming to one’s dignity!

Before business could be discussed, the tearoom needed to be cleared of all the bunny dust!

PTG brought back scores of dust bunnies with his broom and his person to the tearoom. Grim and I may have contributed, accidently, to that number. Poor Mrs. Fletcher, Bing, and Salty struggled to catch them all.

It wasn’t that difficult, though. The difficulty was in getting rid of them without igniting their propensity to multiply in the blink of a gummy eyeball.

As our luck would have it, the gummy eyeballs collected over the FE were exactly what was needed to get these dusty little critters stuck in one place with no ability to propagate willy-nilly.

Back in the Tea Room, the others crawl around on the floor collecting dust bunnies. I doodle a quick To-Do list on a napkin.

1 - Acquire new laptop and secondary monitor (Skull Pete)
2 - Scout out new hangout (back alleys of Town?)

DD, Elsa and Roo, each chasing a dust bunny, have collided and are now clutching their heads. PTG's broom, and Mrs. Fletcher with her own broom, swing vigorously at dust bunnies swarming across the ceiling. I wonder whatever happened with that major infestation in the Castle cafeteria? It was big news in the paper for a while and then - silence.

3 - Dare to investigate the Castle cafeteria?
4 - Explore and map newly discovered tunnel system (moat entrance)
a - Need cotton balls (to block sound/music)

Ooh, I bet my own music and headphones will work just as well. Should have thought of that sooner!

b - mp3 player, extra earphones

I get out my mp3 player, pop in headphones and start a lively J-Pop playlist -
- just as PTG's broom enthusiastically knocks some dust bunnies from the ceiling onto the table in front of me -
- and ZZZZAAAAAPPP!

A huge static electricity discharge knocks me over backwards. Every single dust bunny in the Tea Room disintegrates. I'm lying on my back, my fur bristling like crazy. Dimly I hear exclamations from the others as they try to pat their own hair back down.

I clutch at my device, punching its little wheel and home button. The display lights up fizzily, but my stomach plummets. 110 GB of songs - thousands of songs, sorted into lovely useful playlists! - have been wiped clean. My iPod is empty, deceased, and anachronistic.

I am on my way to the cafeteria, to investigate the dusty wusty, evil bunnies, as I close the door, I hear a loud ZAPSKI! OMG I think, one of my newestest pals has hit something, and gotten a huge dose of electricity somehow? I turn around to go back in, but I grab the knob, and feel some kinda wierd, painful tazer type amperageorama, course through my entire body, and cannot move, at this moment I have become a human(?), well at least living, door lock&block, all that will function, is my worn, and torn brain. What to do now, can't speak of yell, or move & and groove, yeow, this REALLY sucky, duckies?

Immoral Electrified Cow! What was that?? Grim is lying on her back trying to soothe down her beautiful soft fur.

The rest of us are touching our heads to check that the ‘standing straight up’ hairs can be smoothed down to normalcy. I notice the blonde hairs on my arms are singed at the tips. Both forearms appear spattered with chocolate specks. However, it does NOT smell like chocolate...it reeks of burned hair.

Glancing around I see that everyone else is only slightly scorched too. Most of us were crawling around on the floor catching the dusty bunnies. Grim is the only one taking the full brunt of the static electrified bolt. She is preoccupied with her little music machine. She must be okay! It probably found a final resting place in the great device graveyard in the sky.

Riddler is the only one missing. That man disappears quicker than a dust bunny on the run! Movement in a reflection on the window near the tearoom entrance tells me he took the ‘Highway out of the Danger Zone....Right into the Danger Zone’.

Everyone IN the tearoom is dusting themselves off.... faith and begorrah, the dusty bunnies are Gone! Poof!!!

The Riddler, OUTSIDE, is spookily seeming to stare off like a somnambulist seeking sweet, sweet sleep.

I can just barely see in the window in my periferlorama vision, and people are in all sorts of shock, or surprise, I thought they, at least some, we're coming with me. Geez, I hope they don't think I was running away, and that I am gone.... Hey, hey, you guuuuys, my brain screams, but I still can't speak or move, plus I think I am jamming the door shut so no one can leave....if I can see, them, to an extentareeno, I hope at least one of them can see me, don't think I am blocking, shmocking up the exit on purpose, hope can see, and some how help me....OMG this is NOT looking good.....
PLEASE, help me someone, or something! .....
