I stroke Smoke's fur... mind wandering.... I'm startled out of my thoughts by what I think is the MG shouting.... I stare at the door, not sure what comes next.....

"He does seem more lucid here." PTG muses.

"Hi! Would you like to try some skin cream?"

This time I don't miss. The landscape is littered with shredded posters... and their shredded posters.

"I have to get back to Grim" I turn to Randy. "I'm responsible for the CLAP!"

"You what, now?"

Six more lightning strikes in the distance take our attention. I hate it when other people are right! Especially PTG. But the lightning is far more efficient than a bazooka.

"Are you saluting me then?" Randy glares at me.

"I'm a civilian - and you're an idiot. I'll never salute you. Just find a way for us to communicate!"

Randy's brow furrows. "Amulets." He murmurs.

"I'll need two." I aim my bazooka at a supplement spruiker. Lightning beats me to it.

"Too slow Jenny Wren!" PTG smirks.

I aim my bazooka at him.

"Where did she even find that thing?"

"I think I can take one person back with me." Tarquin fiddles with a fancy watch.

I blow up a scalper flogging illegal downloads. "Got 'im!"

"Is this indiscriminate killing even legal?" PTG is clearly distressed by all the disarray - and no broom to sweep it up!

"They're cockroaches, not people."

"Good point."

We head towards the MASH unit in search of any spare amulets.

I try to beat the lightning strikes while Tarquin keeps score.

PTG prays we will find a new broom.

"Randy!" I call.

He turns around.

I fire the bazooka at a telemarketer, then put it down.

"This can't be Goodbye!"

"This is where I belong."

"Can't we stay in touch?"

"Perhaps." Captain Randy reaches into his britches and tosses me an amulet.

"EEEEWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!" I drop it.

"That's how we can stay in touch, idiot woman!"

"Oh." I gingerly pick it up and wipe it on PTG's terry cloth jumpsuit. "HEY!"

"I'll get one here and contact you whenever I can. We'll fight this war on two fronts."

Tears well in my eyes and I jump at Randy, hugging his tummy and kissing his elbows. "Boundaries!"

"Just take it!"

Randy sighs and steals one of my feathers as a keepsake. Mostly because it was shoved up his nose at the time. He pats me on the back. "Crazy idjit warbling woman."

I step back and turn to Tarquin. "I'm ready."

Tarquin calibrates his fancy watch and takes my hand.

"Remember me this way, Randy!" I take out a strawberry ice cream cone and jam it onto my forehead.

Then Tarquin and I disappear.

I watch as Jenny Wren and Randy hug and exchange vows of a kind only possible when a feather is stuck between them and then Cap'n Bob marches off into the heat haze and mirage of this desert.

I notice that the wriggling monstrosities with the weird messages leap after him being rapidly followed by lightning strikes incinerating them.

I turn to comfort my female partner who appears very subdued and now missing a rather important feather from her decollitage only to see that she has grabbed hold of Tarquin, muttered some command or other and they too have disappeared.

So here I am all alone sitting on a rock and "contemplating my navel" (so to speak).

AND without a broom but with my Chief Castle Sweeper Upper badge, so presumably my salary still goes into the coffers monthly.

Unfortunately there is no means here to spend any of it and I could really do with a nice cup of tea at this moment to reflect on all this new misery!

I stare wide eyed at Jen that screams EWWWWWWWWWWWW and drops the medal I just gave her, and wonder what has she gotten into again , drugged ice cream , oh maybe she found a new stash of pink pills .
she DID not just wipe the medal on PTG's new terry cloth jumpsuit * the one he is so proud of now a huge mud/sand stain from where Jen wiped the medal ,, ???? what is she mummbling about?? contact ?? how?? OMG she has lost her mind and thinks we can talk through a medal, oh oh wait I think poor Jen has the medal mixed up with the Camp's Amulet's the ones that General Blue blessed and gave us so we are always in contact with eatch other and our critters* them having chips inplanted in the ears* made and put in by the troops resident vet* but poor Jen only has a few grey matter cells working * damage from all the KABOOM'S from the Bombs and TNT she throws,, she forgot I told her I wished I had my Amulet with me but it is sitting on the table next to my pipe in my cottage,I did not think I needed it for I was just going outside to talk to Blossom, leason well learned.
WOOOOO boundaries there Jen as I am jumped on and hugged like a pillow and kisses on my stomach and elbows , have to snicker Jen is a short like bag of TNT but strong as a bull argggggggggg and one crazy ear spliting warbling idjit woman as I hide the feather in my pockect a fond memory of my lill Tasmanian Devil Jenifer,,
I push her away and before I can say another word she rams a strawberry ice cream cone on her forehead the POOF she is gone.

A strang feeling comes over me, tears fill my eyes heart breaks a tad, I am going to miss them and all that we went through , I will keep them in my heart and ask the Elves to watch over them protect them as they do my troops and maybe one day I can find a way to get to see them again, but my drive to get back to The Camp Under The Midnight Moon is a driving force so strong I can not nor will I fight it, just what way do I go ??
How do I get back , find and fight the evil force that put me here?
I hold my head high ,wipe my face , shoulders square and strong I march on keeping a close watch for any sign that will lead me in the right direction.
The sky line before me shimmers like I am the jungle intense heat is making my every breath tear at my lungs, all of a sudden I hear water,,, a brook?? a stream?? a water fall??
I dig deep and force my feet to run towards the sound,, I am barley aware of going through a curtain of Jello and and falling inches away from a pond,,, I crawl to the edge and throw my head in and gulp the cool water till I think I will drown,, I rool over like a beached whale and gulp air,, my racing heart slow to a normal beat and afraid to open my eyes I force myself to open them,, before me is a vision one I thought I would never see again,, The Ancient Park,, I roll over YES YES The Overgrown Pond,, over my shoulder is the Chapel,,OMG I am almost home but I need sleep and food to get my strength back to be able to trek the rest of the way,,

I arrive on a beaten dirt track, winding across a scrubby, uneven field. No sign of telemarketers or scammers. No sign of PTG or Randy.

I double check the watch. According to it, PTG should be here.

I can afford to wait, for a bit anyway.

I wait.

As I follow in the footsteps that Cap’n Bob has left behind, I can’t help but notice that the route he has chosen is as straight as an arrow but leads to nowhere in particular. There is just more flat desert with a strong heat haze in the distance.

I recall how confused and upset he was just after Jenny Wren had departed and I sincerely hope that he has not one more been the subject of any untoward psychotropic medicine that would scramble his mind and affect his decision to stay here instead of having (I hope) Grim rescue us, returning us to our own MC realm.

I look to my left and the hills and once more notice the greenery. Green means rain, means water and I have a terrible thirst and an empty cup!

So I am in a bit of a dilemma. I can continue to follow in the Cap’ns footsteps or move towards the higher, greener and certainly cooler ground.
I can also now see the flying objects much more clearly now and they are dragons and they do have riders on them. I remember this also being similar to Cap’n Bob and Frosty (his dragon) and so that way there is civilization of some kind.

This of course is not of my own MC realm but is better than none at all here in the desert. There are not even dust bunnies so I am not even tempted to sweep up anything!

There is no sign of the Cap’n ahead of me and his footsteps are now becoming obscured by the searing winds that sweep across this arid land.

I also reflect on this fact that the Cap’n has called this dimension his “home” and so those riders must know him if he is one of their officers.

I must make my decision quickly: continue to follow his path or change direction and head for the higher ground.

I move towards the hills and “civilization”!
