Jacy woke up with a start, sniffing the air. She flapped her hands around the bed searching for Sophie who was not in her usual spot.
"Brrr...it's so cold in here...and what is that smell?"
Flicking on a light switch and grabbing her robe, she planned to follow her nose and investigate.
"This would be much easier with that big beautiful ferrety nose..." she murmured, wondering what shenanigans Sophie was up to this time when suddenly the freaked out ferret came sliding sideways into the room.
"Portal pot! Portal pot!" she repeated while flailing around on the slippery hardwood. Jacy grinned at her furry friend, unaware of the dangerous situation about to unfold. Scooping Sophie up she planted a kiss on her nose and calmly asked, "What's a portal pot?"
"What's a portal pot? WHAT is a portal pot? Hmm, well...let me think...oh yeah, it's only a TIME TRAVEL device...that smells like incense...well actually it IS incense...in a pot...hence, portal pot..."
Jacy cocked her head to one side, trying to digest this piece of information. Shrugging she said, "So why is this such a big deal? I mean, everything here is magic...even though I've lost mine for now...but...isn't time travel just more magic?"
Sophie scrunched her face up with a look of disgust. "Magic? MAGIC??? No Jacy, time travel is not magic...it is SCIENCE...and it is dangerous!! All the portal pots were supposed to have been buried long ago, which makes me wonder if it is someone from the past. If it's someone or someTHING from the future, well then we could have a problem."
Jacy walked back over to the bed and sat down, placing Sophie gently beside her. "Tell me what you know..." she whispered.
"Well for starters, right now it's not safe for you to leave this room. If someone has come from the future, it means they've found the pots. In your own room, you will stay in the present. Depending on what era of The Shed the traveller has come to, your present could change very drastically if you leave...do you understand?"
The frightened girl just shook her head "no".
"If the traveller came when you weren't here yet, then you will disappear immediately. If they came when you were here before, then a part of you now will also go back and re-live that time, only it will be different and affect the "you" that is here right now. Does THAT make sense?"
"Nooo..." Jacy whimpered. "You're actually scaring me."
Suddenly Sophie jumped off the bed and ran to sniff at the closed bedroom door. Turning around slowly she said, "I think you better be scared Jacy. I think I smell troll."
Bless you...and thank you!
Ditto to all the rest of you...I appreciate the love!! I've seen the donut breadcrumb trail...
