The Fishy Lighthouse! Part 37
Kittens roll in laughter hearing Timmy make this comment, silence by a gesture from Richard. “No need to laugh about that they are putting themselves in great danger for this city. But no it is called the Fishy Lighthouse as it is the starting point where all our fish comes to land. Just follow me and be quiet about this.”
Cynthia walks up to Richard and looks him deep in his eyes. His head averts her stare as he is unable to look at hers. “Tommy…”. Her voice is soft and filled with questions … “Please look at me and tell me why you kept this a secret from me, you lived for so many years, you stood at the base of all this.”
His head tilts away, with tiny shakes back and forth he turns his head, til their eyes meet and he sees her love and excitement. It calmed his mind and eased his pose. “You are right dear, but like you I did not want to worry you hearing about me being with dogs. They have been your enemies for so long. And yes, I did no about a life with the dogs. So if you let me, let me show you and the kittens. Cooky and Kitty I am sorry, I hope you will still be working with us after hearing this story.”
Kitty stood beside Lady Chambelle and explains how she felt about the entire ordeal “We are in this with Milady Chambelle and we follow her everywhere. We heard the stories from the journal and stand behind her believes we can achieve it again.”Cooky laughed in pain. Short of breath after she ran after the kittens to gather them for the upcoming moments.
Richard smiles and licks his paw before combing it across his head. “I am glad to hear you take such care of my Lady and stand by her in times of need… Now okay lets us go and let me tell show you what I meant with the secret.”
He pulls a lever hidden in a drum. With a click the door is opened and Richard leads the way together with his Cynthia, Lady Chambelle by his side. The kittens with copper skip behind him. Cooky and Kitty close the ranks as they pass through. They entered the small shack that was a whole lot bigger than what the outside suggested.It is filled with drums and old boxes. Old lamps that hold the smell of oil lay broken on wooden tables. Richard stood still net to another door. Its steel rusted and old with a big locking mechanism has the kittens drop that little jaws.
“It is so big” and a big long “wow” cross their lips.
“Beyond this door is the other world, the one you are told to avoid, I hope you understand the impact it will have if it was known to either side. So please behave.”
Richard turns the big wheel and unlocks the door. His body leans back to throw his weight into opening the door. The small streak of light shines on to the floor and becomes bigger as the door opens more. Richards shadow has been cast down as he pushes the door further open. Without any warning everyone is startled as Duncan jumps through the door and barks like crazy.
