Continuation of Part 10
Night Star walked into the medieval guest room to find Rodinus sprawled out across an ornate four-poster bed. In a corner of the room, Sophie and the
pink gerbils were engaged in a game of poker. The stinky cat was curled up next to Rod, and the dogs were in another room getting bathed and fed.
Rodinus groaned and rubbed his forehead. "Where am I?" he called out.
Night Star placed herself in a chair beside the bed, and offering a cold drink...began the lengthy explanation of dimensions. While the two sat in
deep discussion, the cat stretched and jumped off the bed. Sauntering over to the ferret and gerbils, he squatted and released a stinky egg. Turning
to give a sniff of approval, the cat and Sophie locked eyes. With a hiss and a quick about-face, the feline made for the doorway with ferret and
gerbils in hot pursuit.
Rodinus rolled his eyes, muttering "Stinky eggs....I cannot escape the stinky eggs.." to which Night Star snapped her fingers and the offensive egg
"Can you teach me that?" Rod inquired.
Before Night Star could reply, a loud gong sound reverberated through the house. Jane's voice followed, with a request that all 'family' members
meet in the dining hall. Everyone stopped what they were doing and made their way to the huge room. As they greeted each other, they pulled chairs
up to the table and waited for Jane to arrive. She walking in smiling and took her seat.
"Let's start with an old-fashioned roll call, shall we? I just want to make a note of who is here, and who has been summonsed."
As she looked at each person, she wrote down their name and inquired if they had summonsed anyone to the event.
When she was finished she read out the list of names, but any invitees were kept secret for now.
"Tsu, Night Star, crappiekat, Jacy, TrueBrit, Gordi, Serdgiam, fossilera, grayeagle, Cody, Rodinus, Homer (& Zach), TheDoctor46 and TDawg. Am I
Everyone looked at each other and shook their heads.
"Right...excellent! We are pretty much ready now. The food is endless and the decorations are up. As you all know, tonight's party is special
indeed. This is our Valentine's celebration...and the magnificent love vibrations that we emit will be felt through the veil by other wounded
warriors. Please have fun, enjoy yourself...but also be aware that guests and invitees may arrive a wee bit disoriented."
Jane stood up and smiled. She held up her glass, "Rainbows!"
"Rainbows!" the others said, clinking their glasses together.
