Want a nap-time story to lull you off?
Here is the beginning of chapter 11, so you know I'm not slacking off.
The Shed Part 11
As everyone filed out of the dining room, Jane motioned to Jacy to stay behind.
"I've summonsed woodsmom to the party," she said. "I'd like you to be on the look-out for her."
"Oh sure, my pleasure!" Jacy responded. "Will she be arriving alone?"
Jane grinned. "I guess you haven't met Tommy Boy yet?"
"No...I don't think so...what does he look like?"
With a completely blank expression, Jane said "He's a moose."
Jacy nodded, "A lodge member..."
"No!" Jane started laughing. "He's a real moose...from Alaska. He arrived earlier and the boys fed him then sent him to cheer up Night Star! He
is woodsmom's guardian...like Whimsy is yours."
"OHhhhh...." Jacy laughed. "A moose. Should fit right in around here."
Then the girls parted ways....Jane retreated to her personal chambers, while Jacy went outside to meet Tommy Boy.
TDawg and Homer had placed a party sign on the fence at the far edge of the property. Those two, along with fossilera...often gave the impression
that were 'not entirely human'. The cooking of meat was almost an obsession, and simple tasks were undertaken rather poorly. Jane's only comment
on the matter was, "Aww, bless 'em for trying." Apparently, there were many magical secrets in Rainbow Land.
Tsu, Jane, and Night Star were preparing themselves for a night of festivity. Rainbow coloured chiffon dresses were donned, fragrant oils were being
dabbed on pulse points, and soft feminine humming drifted through open windows.
There was magic in the air as surely as if sparkles were raining upon the land. Pixies and faeries danced around maypoles in the garden, while
fireflies and hummingbirds fluttered above.
TrueBrit, Gordi, Cody, Rodinus and Serdgiam were also preparing for the night's celebration. Each in their own room, each performing their own
personal 'ritual'. True took a swig of rum, and swatted at the pixies who were trying to braid his hair. Sitting in his white shirt, black jacket
and red tie, he rubbed his aching shoulder and wondered what had induced him to head-bang at the jam session.
Gordi was standing in front of his mirror, adjusting the wig and kilt he was forced to perform in, due to losing a bet with TrueBrit. "Could be
worse?" he shrugged at himself. "Could be bunny slippers!" then he laughed, and danced a jig for his own amusement.
Cody was also watching his own reflection in the mirror. As he stood in black tux and tails...Jane was mischeiviously using her magic from her room
down the hall. Cody would suddenly be wearing a rainbow-top hat...then a moment later a rainbow cummerbund. "Woman! Make up your mind!' Cody
yelled...hearing her laughter as she zapped him with a matching rainbow bowtie.
