"Hmmm, now should I see if I may deter the Pirates from this island, or just leave them be. Maybe they will continue on their path and not turn
towards our encampment. Such a dilemma." Syx thinks to Himself.
"I best leave them be and get to that task of finding something for Our meal. I know that Dawg is already smelling the bacon!" Syx chuckles to
Syx flies back towards the island to scan the woods and pasture land for game. He is over the isiand now and looking down as he glides along the tree
tops. "Such a beautiful island" He thinks. "What will they find in the ground,and what else may I find while searching for food?"
He can see some rabbits, squirrels, and BOARS!
"Fantastic!! They are right out in the open field! Such easy pickings here!" Syx says excitedly to Himself.
He swoops down and snags a boar in one of his taloned claws.
"YES!!Now for another!"
Syx sweeps his wings to gain height and angles back to the other stunned animals. A few of them now head off into the cover of the forest, but there
are still two just standing there evidently shocked at what just transpired. He swoops down for another grab as the one in his grasp is struggling to
gain freedom. SWOOSH!! He grabs another boar in His other claw. "Yes! This is even better than I could have imagined!!"
Syx flies up into the night sky with His prizes and smiles inwardly and heads back to the camp. Only a short flight away from His Friends, He knows
They will be pleased with His offerings and will soon be there.
Now overhead of the group He sees that They have a fire blazing now. Some are now sitting around the warmth of the fire, and some are still at the dig
site, Syx can see TDawg looking His direction.
"Syx! You never cease to amaze me! Look there you guys, He brings us Two Boar!" TDawg declares to the group.
The gang excitedly awaits the drop of the two succulent looking boars.
"Drop one right here! We are ready with blades to start the gutting!" Gordy shouts to Syx.
Syx flies over Gordy and a couple others and gets ready to drop one of the animals right into the center of them.
"Here it comes You guys!" Syx tells the gang.
They catch the boar and knife it into its neck.
"Right here for the other!" TrueBrit yelled to Syx.
He flies up to be able to turn around to the gathering of 4 of the others.
"Dinner is coming down !" Syx declared.
The second boar is caught and knifed. The preparations begin on both animals for our dinner.
" I have some lovely greens and juicy berries for our dinner!" Night exclaims to the group.
"That sounds great Night! Lets get that on the table that we fashioned while You guys were gone." True declared to Night.
"This is perfect! We can all be seated around this on some short logs and small boulders laying around.!" Night says excitedly.
Syx flies off over the trees to find a landing spot. He sees a small open area that will suit Him just fine for a place to set down. He soars down to
the open grass and back flaps to slow Himself down. Now only a few feet above ground He prepares to land. Setting down gently He praises himself on a
"Wow. That was great! It is about time I had a decent landing. Some of My other attempts were small disasters!" He thinks to Himself. Now on the
ground He shifts back to His human form. Waking back into the woods to find His garments, He sees some Fixers wandering around.
"What gives You guys? Are You all ok" Syx asks the little folks.
"Yes Syx We are fine. But we did have an encounter with some frisky raccoons, of a sorts, that were bent on Our destruction! They appeared to be
similar to the raccoons We know of, but had short tusks on their faces." One of the little people replied. "They were very forward in their demeanor
and were quite the chore to dispense! We are merely watching that they do not return and try again to have us for their dinner!"
" Speaking of dinner, let's return to the camp as they are setting up for us to enjoy just that!" Syx exclaimed to the small group. "Let's get going
now and pick up the rest of your gang on the way."
They head off towards the campsite looking around for Their little Friends and any of the 'coons' the little ones encountered.
Soon They are near the camp and have picked up some other Fixers along the way. They are all looking forward to the meal fixings the others have set
up for them all to enjoy.
As they walk into the camp area they see the two Boars roasting over the fire. They head over to it and sit down to warm them selves by the blaze
before them. They see a table set with many different greens and some delicious looking berries of a few different colors.
"This looks like it is going to be a delightful meal!" Syx exclaimed.
It will not be much longer Syx, and the Boar will be ready to devour!" Gordy happily says to the returned Friends.
"We did hit something solid and were trying to uncover whatever it is that we found! It is not a small item and has been quite the task to get it all
uncovered. It seems to be several feel wide, and twice that in lenghth!" One of the group said.
"Perhaps it is not a chest as we all thought, but possibly a doorway or a hatch into the underground?" Syx asks the group.
Cody returned from digging to the fire area and exclaimed, "We found something on the surface of the object we are uncovering, and it looks like a
latch of some sorts. It is very rusty and will not open yet. We need to hammer it with something and maybe then it will be free of rust enough for us
to make it work as was intended."
"How exciting this is! Is there any signs of edges on that surface You are working on around the latch. Perhaps it is indeed a lid for us to open!?"
Syx asks Cody.
"In fact there is a few edges we have found. I think You are right. There is most likely a doorway there that will let us go underground! Maybe the
'Treasure' is down there!"
A short time later, the rest of the ones digging returned to the group and they all sat down around the table and feasted on the roasted boar and
other delicious foods for their dinner. The Bacon is a delight to devour and the other cuts were fantastic!! All are chatting away at what may lay
beneath the hatch......
