Yesterday in the Saga Amarinda left us in San Franscisco with Emmeline playing with her food...
“Sometimes you cannot choose you destiny,” Beryl responded mystically.
“And sometimes you can.” Emmeline upended that plate on the table, picked up a fork and smushed the potato around.
“That’s cheating!” Beryl stamped her foot in anger.
“Whinge, bitch moan,” Emmeline muttered. She saw the needle - nasty. What did the answer look like? “Oh it can’t be.” She picked the small item up on the fork and looked at it closely.
Of course, I had to decided what it was!
“Well?” Beryl stood impatiently tapping her foot.
Pursing her lips, Emmeline stood contemplating the small item on the fork while she considered her limited options. It should be safe to return. Rinalda and the twins are dead. Zoltan is off in Nebraska with Pete. Surely, it will be safe?
Just then the door slammed open with such force that the hinges bent. Dr Garth Flugelheimer-Watts and his assistant Miss Primrose Grimly stood in the doorway.
“Halt!” Dr. Garth pointed an imperious finger at Emmeline. “Give me the chalice!”
Prim hung her head in disgust. Even she could see that Emmeline wasn’t in possession of the chalice. Nitwit! She trotted over to Emmeline and studied the object on the fork for a brief moment before jumping back. “No!”
“Yes.” Emmeline nodded her head sagely. “It’s true.”
“What will you do?” Prim demanded harshly.
“I will return it to its home. It must be done. You know that, don’t you, Prim?”
Prim shuddered in fear. “How will you get there?”
“I believe that I will take your space ship. Dr. Flugelheimer-Watts won’t mind, I’m sure. Especially if you come along to navigate. We will be back, oh… say we’ll be back sometime this century. It’s not that far.”
Dr. Garth shook himself as though suddenly waking and shouted, “What? You’re taking my ship? No, no, no!”
Emmeline merely nodded. “Of course, you’ll know best. In that case, I’ll need to find a garden center and take care of this.”
Primrose rounded to face the doctor and declared, “You fool! Give her the ship!”
“Eh? Why would I do that?”
“Because she has a zucchini zuuker seed!”
Hmmm. I wonder what Kelly will do with this?
