Ah...the calm before the storm I see...



Author Reply: Ah, yes. And what a storm it will be!

Thanks so much for reading and stopping to leave a good word. ((hugs))

Oh dear! How long will it take them to realise that something is wrong? Do Pippin and Bergil really have to wait until the banquet starts? And are they even conscious? Lots of questions that have to wait until the next chapter, I fear ;-)

Author Reply: Lots of questions, but there will be some answers at least in the next chapter. Hang in there!

New chapters are back, yay! What a relief.

But oh dear, no one is even missing our buried friends yet? And whatever is the pup trying to dig up? This is a great story. I, too, have been dragged by a dog much stronger than me, and I was lucky enough to come away with only scrapes and bruises and nothing worse.

Author Reply: Such a relief! Whew.

You, too? I remember my sister being dragged across a lawn by a dog of half her weight. Dogs can have a lot of power, and with four legs to our two they can really pull you along, even if you're dragging your feet and leaving furrows in the grass. I learned about not wrapping the leash around my wrist, from her experience, and saw it again in the more recent incident remembered at the top of the chapter.

Alas! How long until they realize that there is more to it tham Pippin encouraging Bergil to shirk his tasks? Poor Pippin and Bergil! A second time under a weight for the former, and a sore everything, it appears, for Bergil!

Author Reply: A sore everything! You're right -- to fall and be dragged would probably lead to "sore everything"!

It may take some time for someone to realise what's happened... unfortunately, it's as likely in real life as in a story.

But you know me, always trying to write "real" while working towards a satisfactory conclusion. (Sure wish satisfactory conclusions were a guarantee in life as well. *sigh*)

Problem fixed! Happen to be sitting up with newborn pups for the night. (Dad says it pays to be careful which means 3 or 4 mostly sleepless nights for us 'older ones'. Tonight is my shift.)

I love the old adages...quite true. Ought to use these sometime.

Rambling again...had better send this off. Goodnight.

Author Reply: Hope the shift went well. What kind of pups are they? I bet they're awfully cute.
