Even An Angel Needs Help Now and Then

“Thanks Danny.  We’ll keep an eye and ear open.  I’ll let Anthony know when he gets back.”  Tongson hung up the phone.  He glanced over his shoulder.  Two youngsters stood near the basic magician’s kit in the showcase near the front window.

One child nudged the other.  “How do you know that is a real magic wand?”  

The reedy thin tall girl tucked her hair behind her ears and glared at the boy next to her.  “’Cuz my Momma said so.”  She reached out and pinched the boy on the arm.  They exchanged more words in low hushed whispers.

Tongson smiled shaking his head.  Natalie spent many of her after school hours helping him unpack boxes and sort the used books that came into the store.  He paid her in books and food as well as minimum wage.  Her family tried to keep food on the table and a roof over their heads.  He knew they appreciated the help he provided along with the tutoring Natalie received. 

 As Tongson watched Natalie and her young friend leave, he glanced up catching the young female cowering in the back semi-dark section near the storeroom in the mirror hanging high on one bookcase.

Octavia, my dear.  She’s here.  Can you please help with making sure she doesn’t hurt herself or us? Tong smiled as Octavia’s response rustled deep within his psyche.  Praise be for Tavia.  She could calm the fear out of most animals and folks.  Too bad the young snow leopardess didn’t understand help was only a few feet away.

I see her, my love.  I’ll handle this.  Stay put.  Bless Serge for keeping us informed.  Tongson nodded and acted as if he didn’t know the leopardess lurked nearby.

Angel swallowed hard.  Two days without food and her stomach growl louder with each noise it made.  The kits she carried needed nourishment.  She had to find a place to hole up.  Serge’s cryptic message made no sense.  A few simple lines written on a half sheet of paper wrapped around a one way plane ticket and some cash left her nothing solid to act upon.

She’d come to the right address.  Yet, the oracle Serge insisted she find hadn’t manifested itself.  Had she been foolish enough to believe someone cared?  Or had she blindly led herself into another trap?  She’d kill herself before she’d spend another second in Shere Kahn’s possession. 

A hand grasped her wrist.  Angel pulled and tugged, fighting to get away.  The more she fought the more tired she got.  Slowly words filled her subconscious until she closed her eyes and darkness engulfed her.

Happy Weekend Gang!

Too much going on at the spice homestead this week to research sand sculptures for Jackson and Abebi to judge.  Maybe next week.  Instead on the way home from work Friday, a new character began speaking to me by the name of Angel.  She took form as a snow leopardess who needed help finding santuary far from Shere Kahn's reach.  What better place than Anchorage with our gang there.
Stay tuned to see what happens next.  
 Until then, share a good book or two with your loves and spice!

Anchorage: perfect place for a snow leopard.

Or a Siberian tiger. Sergei should visit.

Looking forward to Angel's adventures in the Great White North.

I'm already in love with Angel. And what a cliffhanger!

BTW...if you want to add more mystical reality to your Alaska world, check out this info on a buried pyramid that is called the Dark Pyramid by some ~

Linda Moulton Howe: The Alaska Pyramid is Real
On August 10, Linda Moulton Howe first reported on a high strangeness finding in Alaska: an apparent buried pyramid about 50 miles from Mt. McKinley. She has followed up on this story, and the explosive results can be heard in an absolutely riveting witness interview in this edition of Dreamland. The pyramid is larger than the Pyramid of Cheops and is completely buried. It's exact co-ordinates have been found, and the witness Linda interviews this week provides much more detail about what was going on there in recent years.

The object is apparently very old, both built and buried by unknown parties. It is believed by this week's witness to have something to do with power generation and transmission. As there are so many very ancient pyramids in the world, it can be conjectured that there may once have been an advanced power grid on Earth, constructed and also hidden in the very distant past. Also, during the cold war era, the site was apparently off-limits, no doubt because it was in a militarily sensitive area, and even may have actually been used as a power source. There is no indication that it is classified now, but rather abandoned.

This is Dreamland adventure at it's highest. Settle back and enjoy a mind opening and mind-bending adventure Dreamland style!

Thanks Pat and Savanna! Pat I agree that Sergei needs to make a visit. I'm thinking via the sand sculpture contest so he can play in the sand with the kids like he used to do with his cubs. Savanna what great find this article! Thank you!
