Here's the first part of the next part, lol.
The Shed Part 10
The men stood up and stretched and yawned.
"Think I could use a kip before I get ready for tonight." Cody said.
The sudden blast of Reveille made everyone jump.
Fossilera was standing on the stage, trumpet dangling from his fingers.
"You guys bailing on me?" he asked laughing.
"Oh I forgot you played," Gordi shook foss's hand. "Good on you...you'll be joining us on stage tonight I take it?"
"If you insist!" fossilera joked back.
"And we do!!" the three other men said in unison.
Fossilera shook his head. He muttered under his breath, "Humans...sure do have some strange customs..." and he wandered out to see what Homer was
burning on the grill.
He waved at Jane and Tsu as he passed through the kitchen. The girls were singing Celtic songs while they puttered around arranging food on brightly
"I like it here!" he thought to himself. "This party seems to be something important."
Standing on the deck, shielding his eyes from the brilliant sunshine...foss sniffed the air and followed his nose to the grilling area. Homer was
standing in front of a huge barbecue, wearing what looked like a flak-vest apron, with culinery tools in each hand. He and TDawg were apparently
arguing about grilling techniques.
"Smells good!" fossilera grinned.
Homer shook his hand. "What can I get you? We have my grill right here...and over there is where TDawg has burnt offerings that used to be good
Retaliating to the banter, TDawg yelled back "Char-broiled to perfection my friend...precision cooking at it's finest!"
Fossilera diplomatically replied, "Why don't you both fix me a plate of your best? I'm pretty hungry!"
In the meantime, Jane had sought out Night Star to tend to an unconscious Rodinus. He had arrived with a strange assortment of animals and survival
equipment. It was strange, the things that people took on their journey. Jacy brought a ferret...Cody came on his motorcycle. Tsu had nothing but
an attitude and an appetite, and Gordi still hadn't remembered that he brought his prized guitar.
"They can have anything they want here", she mused..."Yet all they seem to really want is to be together."
"What did I bring?" Night Star asked Jane.
"Well....you didn't bring Windstorm, he was already here. But you did bring the memory of the white wolf, and there is much more to that relationship
than you can imagine."
"I knew it!" Night Star exclaimed. "He is my twin-soul, isn't he?"
Jane smiled at her, and whispered, "Tonight is our Valentine's party...wear something pretty!"
Then she winked and turned back towards the kitchen.
