The Fishy Lighthouse! Part 9
While the new found friends are having there tea it is Richard who is still telling the tale of the Cursed Diary.
“Will, believe me if I tell you that like me you can go back to the world you left, but you won’t stay human for long. I there for urge you to consider a life here.”
-“But Richard I did not lose my heart to this place, no offence. I mean I do not think I did.” William is putting his cup down and is looking annoyed with the story and the place he finds himself in. “I helped you. I got it the first time being the hero and all that, but now…”
“I understand will and it will take some time to understand yourself why you came back here. Just always remember the following words. ‘One is lost when nine are gained furever’. Use them when you are in rest or bed. The body you are in now is a permanent body. Leave it to long you turn in a cat out there and die here. I was almost done for Will. And I am so grateful I am still here, thanks to you.”
-“Now can we leave it at that, please gentleman” Cynthia daps a handkerchief around her eyes “I am happy my Tommy is brought back by you William. I look up to you and saw a true hero when we needed you the most. I thank you William from the bottom of my heart. But I have to inform you that it is time for us to meet with the King.”
Kitty and Cooky step away from the table and start clearing the table from the tea set and some silverware. It is William who is still some staring away from everybody. Richard is helping Lady Chambelle to get a cape around her and getting into a coat himself.
“William are you coming” in disbelief William looks up to the paw that lays on his shoulder. It is Lady Chambelle with a smile on her face looking down on him. “William I consider you a friend and it pleases me to have met you. You made me believe, now please let us help you believe.”
A little more woken up William stands to his feet and stares in the eyes of lady Chambelle “I know Cynthia; it is just hard to take in that much in one go”
“I am sure you do fin Will, you came along way. Now lets us get going.” Richard taps on his back and leads Lady Chambelle outside with his paw around her slim waist. Outside he helps her into a white coach trimmed with shiny polished silver handles. In front are two white rats strapped in a red gear.
“By the way Will may I introduce you to Bernard here, he is our coachman. I do not think you have met him before”
-“Bernard, it is nice to meet you”
“It is a pleasure to meet you, Hero. I am honoured to have you aboard.”
Cooky and Kitty are standing in the door way waving as the coach with Bernard controlling the reins is leaving the driveway and get across the bridge.
The scenery is passing by quickly for the three on their way to meet with the King. It all proceeds very calmly as time being spend laughing and talking. At the palace it is the opposite as cats are running around getting things ready for the big welcome. But that is not all. As McSniff has a serious look on his face, while talking with a guard.
There we have it fresh of the press a new part in the McSniff story, the Fishy Lighthouse. What could be all the commotion in the palace, maybe we find out next week in a new McSniff.
