Hello everyone! Before we get into the issue I (Jenni) would like to
let the people who emailed me about Dye Scouts (sorry, I forgot who it
was) and anyone who might be interested know that this would be a great
time to send your work in. I'm almost through with a big wave of papers
and will have time both to look at your work and make your webpages.
Also, the following material was supposed to go out during the
but due to various circumstances it was delayed until now. Plus...
we're kinda way busy right now so this worked out well. You may
remember that over the summer, lacking anything else to discuss when
TBAA was on hiatus, we invented a scenario in which John, Andrew, and
Audrey were plotting against JenniAnn. We'd like to have that story
wrapped up by Christmas so here is the second of three parts. The
events took place in late August.
Oh! We wish all those celebrating a very happy Thanksgiving. If you
don't have plans swing by Dyeland Castle early Thursday. We've made
plans to stalk Adam. So help me, I am finding out where he gets those
"turkeys" this year!! Anyway... Here we go.
JenniAnn: Oh... Vincent, I'm worried... Do you think he'll come? Do you
think we can trust him?
Vincent: I'm sure he will come, you must not worry so much. Please,
just sit down. If we both continue to pace we'll eventually run into
JenniAnn: I suppose. (she sits down at a table inside her office.)
just this whole plot business has got me... (a knock interrupts her).
Vincent: I'll get it. That must be him now. (He proceeds to the door
and opens it to reveal Adam, the Angel of Death.)
Adam: Umm... Hello, uh, sir, is this JenniAnn's office? (with a rather
surprised look on his face).
JenniAnn: Adam! (She walks towards the door.) I am very rude. You've
to meet Vincent. Adam, this is Vincent, my guardian and friend.
Vincent, this is Adam, angel and friend of the kingdom. (The two shake
hands and Adam looks a bit relieved.)
Adam: Nice to meet you Vincent. JenniAnn, it's been a long time. I'm
curious about this mysterious meeting you've called me to.
JenniAnn: Adam, something odd is going on, something very strange.
Vincent: We needed to speak to you because you are the only one we felt
we could trust and yet was close enough to the situation to be of any
genuine assistance. But first, let's all take a seat. (The three sit
down at the table with Vincent and JenniAnn on one side, facing Adam.)
Adam: Please explain.
JenniAnn: (visibly shaken) Adam, I have reason to believe... to
Vincent: (removing a handkerchief, almost automatically, from his
pocket and handing it to JenniAnn) It seems Andrew, John, and Audrey
entered into some secret plot against JenniAnn. It is our fear that
plan to discreetly remove her from Dyeland and take it over for their
Adam: What!? I mean John and Audrey... Okay, you humans can be a very
odd, confusing bunch. Present company excepted... maybe. But Andrew? An
angel? What could he want with earthly power?
JenniAnn: That is what we were hoping you could tell us. Have you
any changes in him?
Adam: No, none whatsoever. Compassionate, dedicated, patient... The
same Andrew as always. Other than this supposed plot have you noticed
JenniAnn: No, and that's the problem. If I could pinpoint what was
his discontent I could maybe fix it. But he's behaved wonderfully.
Adam: Are you quite positive about this plot? Are you sure it's not in
Vincent: No, it's not. I know of it, too, and I consider myself
JenniAnn: Yes, he is, very much so. I had hoped he would have told me
was nonsense. I could have trusted that then for I am prone to drama.
But as it is...
Adam: Very well. I will keep my eye out and let you know if I notice
anything. (rising from his seat) Meanwhile, keep your self safe. (Pats
JenniAnn on the shoulder.) Vincent, please walk with me to the door.
JenniAnn: Thank you, Adam for coming. I appreciate it.
Adam: My pleasure. (He and Vincent walk out into the hallway and close
the door behind them. They proceed in silence for a few moments before
Adam speaks up.) Vincent, I do know of the plot. Andrew told me.
Vincent: (with a slight note of anger) Please, you have to tell me what
it is. She's innocent and this is cruel.
Adam: If you could just understand... They didn't want you to know...
They didn't want you to have to hide anything from her but it's too
late now. (Whispers something to Vincent.)
Vincent: (bewildered) I'm not sure I like that idea at all.
Adam: But now you're in on it. It's the only way, Vincent. It's what's
Ooooh!!! Okay, now for something a little less psychotic...
