The Shed Part 12
Everyone was happily preparing for the night's activities, when suddenly there was a loud gong sound, and Jane's voice could be heard throughout the
"Family...we will be assembling in the ballroom in fifteen minutes. Tonight is our magical Valentine's Party and there will be many guests arriving
soon. Please give everyone the warmest reception, and remember...that when we LOVE altogether...the vibration transcends all dimensional barriers
tonight...until midnight. I would like to thank Whimsy, WindStorm, Grayeagle and the other dragons and faeries...for flying high and remaining on
'alert' for our family. It's been many years since we battled the ogres, but we must always be on watch. Rainbows everyone....I will see you in
Jacy closed the shed door and tip-toed across the grass, cursing at her heels. Whimsy swooped down and landed on a nearby tree branch.
"You clean up nicely peasant!" the dragon quipped.
"Shouldn't you be doing a swan-dive somewhere?" Jacy cracked back. "Just be careful out there!" she implored, giving Whim a sombre look.
"Hey....Jacy? I summonsed somebody."
"What? You're not supposed to summonse...who is it, somebody's guardian?"
"No. It's another dragon. We can use another sky-rider tonight...and I trust Syx."
"Okay Whim...you've never been wrong." Jacy kissed the dragon's neck, then with a turn of her skirts, darted towards the big house.
Throwing open the back door, she was met Tsu, Night Star, Jane and....woodsmom! Jacy embraced the newcomer warmly and then backed away to peruse
"Wow....beautiful!" she exhaled. The ladies all chatted as their shoes clicked down the hallway towards the ballroom. There were candles
everywhere, and rainbow coloured lights gave the huge room an almost kaleidoscope effect. The stage was covered with various instruments and
equipment, and a massive crystal chandelier hung over the dance floor.
Cody and Rodinus were sporting matching tuxedos and appearing somewhat 'Blues Brothers' in appearance. In stark contrast, Homer was wearing camo
and khaki...partially covered by his flak-vest grilling apron. Gordi, being a good sport had gone all out with wig, leopardskin top and kilt.
TrueBrit was beside him, resplendent in black jacket, white shirt, red tie....and bunny slippers. Serdgiam and TDawg had decided to dress comfortably
as they would likely be spending their time bantering and cooking with Homer outside. Fossilera was nowhere to be seen, however there was a fellow in
a costume mask leaning towards crappiekat in conversation...quite possibly TheDoctor46.
Jane walked into the centre of the dance floor, a beautiful vision in rainbow-coloured chiffon. The chattering died down and everyone's attenion
focused on their hostess.
"The guests will begin arriving anytime now, and so will our fellow lost souls. Remember that many of the people attending tonight are those with
the power to cross into our dimension...and then return home again. The 'travellers'...the ones who are 'taking the walk'...will require comfort
and lodgings. If you have summonsed someone please attend to their needs....and above all else....have fun and stay in the love vibration.
As the musicians climbed the stairs to the stage, a strange sound could be heard from behind one of the amplifiers. TrueBrit poked his head around to
see fossilera cursing at a trumpet.
"What are you doing there mate?" True asked him.
"Argh! Emptying my spit valves..." fossilera explained, shaking the instrument.
True backed away from the flying spittle and gave fossilera a grin, "Well...glad you're joining us!"
Then with a wink and a nod, the guitarists broke into Gordi's Rainbow Warrior theme song.
The doorbell chimed loudly, and Jane gracefully made her way to greet the evening's first arrivals.
Tsu looked at Jacy with a huge grin and squealed, "Ooh, I wonder who's here?"
The two girls turned to Night Star, whose face was suddenly a very ashen shade of pale. With a look of panic, her head shot around to face the
doorway. "Did you hear that?" she whispered.
"The doorbell?" Tsu asked.
A long mournful howl echoed through the hallways, and Night Star shook her head.
Then she quietly lost consciousness and collapsed.
