    “Oh there you are Yikesy! At last!” exclaimed Arona, anxious to divert attention from Vinny’s question.

    “Smurked?” asked Sue Maffey with a delicately raised eyebrow.

    “Sorry, but who are you?” Arona was puzzled. Not wanting to be rude, but really she had no idea who all these people were.

    “Don’t you mind me, dear” Sue said to the befuddled girl, “I’m just passing through.”

    “You do exaggerate Arona, ALL these people?” Vinny remarked. “Sue’s the only new one to pass through in yonks!”

    Arona was starting to wonder if Vincentius had been taken over by his evil twin brother – Demitrius. She decided to keep her suspicions to herself, at least for now.

    “Silly me,” she said with a small smile. Or with just a slight stretch of the imagination it could have been a smirk.

    Vincentius was counterparting with his long lost triplet, Detritus, although he hesitated to mention it. “I had better not mention another character” he said wisely.

    Arona was starting to get cold in the pinkini. She wondered how the lady with the green hair managed to keep warm with so little (not to say as much as nothing) on her skin.
    She probably had some fuel more lasting than just Nhum.
    Upon seeing that (not the nakie lady, Flove forbid, but the freezing Arona and the night falling down), chivalrous Vinny and Bucky went to gather some bones and fire to spend the night around a nice bonefire. Just what she needed for a keetle of hot tea.

    Note from the observing Sue Maffey, who started quickly to get high and delirious on Nhum tea in chippendale cups and mumbled to herself and patient Minky-in-crutches in between a few hiccups: “you knew that a bonfire is actually a fire made of bones, originally said of fires in which the bones of slaughtered animals were burned, allegedly a Gaengelic tradition of the slaughter season in autumn (Samhain, which was soon to come).”
    She almost gasped wondering where their camelephants had suddenly gone and why that purple reckless dragon suddenly looked satiated.

    By now, almost everyone else who was there, including (but not only) Mandrake, Yickesy, Winky-nakie-greenie-Messmeerah-with-her-carved-jamón and Mrs Janet had thought the same at least once. That and wondering whether they’d ever get to see that famed Jiborium.
    So much for cheap package tours.

    “If I didn’t know better,” muttered Mandrake who’d been asked to fetch Arona’s mighty cape to cover her dignity while everybody were gathered and chatting around the flames, “it sure would look like a frigging Hallowe’en party to me…”

    Even Minky was forced to admit that he had completely forgotten about Jiboriums Emporium. What kind of a tour guide am I? he asked himself.

    “Minky!” called Winky, “Hey Minky, yesterdays attraction was tops, loved it! Great tour!”

    “Ah” replied Minky, after a long pause. “What was it that appealed to you the most?” he asked, fishing for clues. He had no recollection of organizing any excursions.

    “The Pop In, in that old Charlie Chaplin movie, very clever, I wasn’t expecting that!”

    “Aha! Yes!” Thinking quickly, Minky added “I had a feeling you’d like that one”.

    Minky was looking smug. “Enjoying the ride?” :pirate:
