..................Welcome to the Little Cottage down the Hill...

11/1/09

All's well that ends well....

They walked and walked and walked....but there didn't seem to come an end to the path they were following...Our swampthings began to get tyred..
-I don't know about you ,said Elvira...but I don't look very scary anymore...
-We should rest for a while,croaked Gustave..when one is tyred one can not be creepy.....
-Lets take five,twittered Miss Moussie,and I mean just five because it's getting dark soon...
WHO landed next to his friends..bringing them some chestnuts he picked on the way..
-That's great,said Gustave..lets roast them..I will build a fire..
-Well,this is going to take more than five minutes..twittered Miss Moussie, but we do need the rest to get our strenght back so we can attack the Pumpkin..
It was very quiet in the forest...there was no wind....not a leaf was stirring...there was just the sound of the crackling fire..Our friends didn't speak..they were staring in to the dancing flames..alone with there thoughts..
Then, suddenly WHO lifted his head..and turned around...did he just hear something..a strange sound came from under that blackberry bush...there...listen..
Miss Moussie,Gustave and Elvira didn't seem to notice..
WHO decited to go and take a look....he walked slowly towards the blackberry bush..crawled under it and then...gave our friends a very big fright by yelling...WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.......
-Who,me...what who ....WHO what..stammered Gustave hopping up and down...WHO, where are you..
Miss Moussie sat as frozen on the ground...she couldn't move ,she couldn't speak...and she was thinking..no.. she couldn't even think anymore..
And Elvira...she immediately ran to the very spot where WHO had disappeared...
-WHO,she called out...WHO..and then almost fell in a big hole from which she heard the voice from WHO answer..'I am down here...I fell in some stupid hole,I bet you its from Mr C..
First Miss Moussie swallowed almost a whole chestnut,and then got back in action...
-WHO,darling are you oke..can you see anything down there..is it very dark and creepy..do tell us how we can get you out of there..
-I am fine,I can see clearly now,there is a light at the end of the tunnel..and I don't want to get out..I want to go to the light..answered WHO..
-O NO....he is going towards the light, we are loosing him..twittered Miss Moussie dramatically
-Don't be silly Miss,croaked Gustave..he is just fine...WHO ,he called....wait there....we are coming..Come on friends...I believe WHO found a short cut..and with a bit of luck we can find Mr C. down there..
Gustave jumped very frog like into the hole..Elvira followed with a very elegant squirrelly jump...and Miss Moussie followed very Miss Moussie like..carefully stepping over the edge.....the three of them tumbled down...landing at WHO's feet.
Nice ...said WHO..so far so good fellows..now, lets find out what's at the end of this tunnel.WHO took the lead...him being the biggest and the creepiest ..
There was a bright light shining at the end of the tunnel..first he light was red..then green..then orange..
-Strange place for a traffic light..mumbled WHO..
Coming closer to the light they heard loud rattling noises..
-WHO, WHO,whispered Gustave..stop..I think we are very close to the pumpkin..I heard that creepy rattle before...
They all stopped in their tracks....listening to the rattling of the chains and then they heard a laughter...and this laughter came from the end of the tunnel...
-It's coming closer, squeaked Miss Moussie ,shaking like a leaf...it's the Pumpkin Monster....I want to get out of here...
-We came to save Sir Hog,and that's what we will do..monster or no monster..said Gustave in a firm tone of voice..stand tall my friends..we can do it...
And so our brave friends stood there.. paw in paw....ready to take charge..
A shadow appeared at the end of the tunnel...it was small..round..and prickly...followed by another one..somewhat bigger..with glasses...
Now the laughter changed in a loud scream....a scream for help...
-Help Help...screamed the two shadows....Monsters in the tunnel...help..and they turned around and ran away...
-Well,that was easy..croaked Gustave..we scared them away..piece of cake..
-Goodness...twittered miss Moussie..these screams sounded familiar..I could swear one of them was from Sir Hog..
-Yes..said Elvira ,and the other one from Mr C...
-Did we just scare our friends away, said WHO in disbelieve..
-Follow them...no time to loose, twittered Miss Moussie, and off she went...running as fast as her little moussie feet could run..yelling..Stop ...Sir Hog..Mr C..its me...

Up ahead in the tunnel the two shadows ran for there life...they hadn't seen such creepy monsters before in their whole life..
Said one shadow to another...C...listen ,this monster is making a very familiar squeaking sound ...listen..
-By jolly...friend Horatio...could this be our dear Miss Moussie...answered the other shadow..now standing still...
Horatio and C..waited...waited to see who was running after them....

WHO....they called out together...because who was the first one coming around the bend..WHO..flapping his swamp wings..WHO,old chap...what are you doing here..and why are you looking so very green,are you sick..we almost didn't recognise you at all..
-Goodness..squeaked Miss Moussie ..arriving after WHO...and what may I ask are YOU two doing here...we were ever so worried ..Sir Hog..are you oke..and dear C..why did you act so mysteriously lately..
-Did you two escape..croaked Gustave..
-Yes,do tell..was it very scary in this Haunted Pumpkin..asked Elvira exited..

-Escape..mysteriously...I am afraid I don't understand a word you are saying..said Horatio...we are fine...I believe I can't say this about you the way you look and all.....
-Well,one thing is correct said C..it all has to do with a Pumpkin,bet you can't guess what it is..
-C..croaked Gustave,no time for riddles...Reveal your secret...NOW!
_Oke Oke..said C...it supposed to be a surprise...but come on then, follow me...and you will see..
At the end of the tunnel there was an opening.....and when our gang stepped out into the forest this is what they saw....A PUMPKIN ROLLERCOASTER....

So...this was why Mr C had acted to suspicious...and why Sir Horatio had disappeared...they both..in secret made a Rollercoaster Pumpkin...how marvelous...Would you like to join our sweet garden creatures for a ride....come on lets have fun ..together we make this a day to remember...You can buy your free tickets at the free lemonade stand...All's well that ends well...and wasn't this a wonderful ending of a great adventure....
