The Shed Part 9
Whilst Jacy was napping on the chaise in the shed, party preparations were well under way. Delicious aromas were wafting through the open kitchen
windows, as the girls lined up platters of home baked treats.
Tsu placed Night Star's cake next to TDawg's chicken casserole, when suddenly she turned her head towards Jane.
"I'm really sorry about stealing your Churnton...earlier...when we met...?" she trailed off embarassed.
Jane rushed towards her, enveloping Tsu in a warm hug.
"Don't be silly love," she smiled. "Everyone arrives here disoriented...and hungry! Once you've been summonsed to take 'the walk', you don't
start to remember everything until you're safe with us. Then, once you're settled in...you begin to summons the next group of visitors."
"Sounds like jury duty!" Tsu joked.
"Well you do end up surrounded by your peers!" Jane quipped back.
Crappiekat was standing back from the buffet table, to survey the results of her creation. She had been patiently arranging crystal glasses of
varying size...until the entire table glistened in the shape of a crystal dragon.
"Well," she said shyly, "What do you think?"
Jane and Tsu came over and stood beside crappiekat. For a moment, no one spoke.
"I know, right?"
"You like it then?" crappiekat asked anxiously.
"We LOVE it!" they replied in unison. "Good job woman," Jane said to crappiekat. "I'm glad you didn't use your magic, that's the easy way
out. What you have created, is magic from your heart." Then she turned back towards the kitchen with an open-mouthed Tsu in tow.
"I can't believe the detail!" Tsu was whispering, "Did you see where she placed the shot glasses? Brilliant...."
Crappiekat, satisfied with her contribution to the buffet table...decided to take a stroll down the hallway. She could hear the low rumble of male
voices and someone picking harmonics on an acoustic Ovation. Peeking her head around the door she said, "Mind if I watch?"
The boys all got to their feet, bowed to the lady and waved their arms toward the vast seating area.
"Pick a chair...any chair...welcome m'lady!" Cody winked at her.
TrueBrit picked up his bass guitar and started pumping out a heavy-handed bass line.
"C'mon lads, enough of that acoustic arsenal of arsiness...let's ROCK!!!!" he started swinging his hair around as the others laughed.
"Arsiness? What's arsiness?" Gordi asked himself while strapping on his own guitar. He still didn't know how his favourite guitar from home had
managed to appear in this 'no time' dimension. When he asked Jane she just smiled knowingly. He scooped up his pick and started strumming
furiously to match the others.
