Suddenly without warning—Our heroes find themselves in 1874 British Columbia… riding in front of a small castle—partially surrounded by the largest number of Mounties they’d ever seen in one place—and a host of First Nation People surrounding the castle on three sides.
They were obviously expected to fill the gap between the two forces.
Larry calmly looked over at Chris and Sarah and quipped, “Hey! We’ve found you!”
Just about now, GENTLE READER, I suspect a little reminder of where we left off in 1874…When expected supplies and hired guns failed to arrive, Pluribux became concerned—it was true they had stocked enough food and other supplies for a week or two, they couldn’t last long beyond that. When he expressed his concern to his master, Black Pigeon, the bird reluctantly told him of his problems feeding—that he kept sending this huge bald eagle into the ether only to have it return seconds later. He admitted an unreasonable fear of this predator, and how he could get some food—but not nearly enough.
“I am am so stupid, sometimes!” Schwärzentaube exclaimed.
“I know how to eliminate the eagle!”
Season 8—Chapter 11—Airfield—Episode 1
Rejoining the current story—Just as our hereos arrived… Pluribux and Schwärzentaube saw for the first time the force surrounding their castle—their suprise complete. They assumed it was another god sending this force from the ether—neither was capable of imagining time-travel, and both felt a twinge of fear.
But these were mere humans and once the two recovered they could quite easily send them back into the ether—from where they could never escape.
They couldn’t sense Cujo sitting calmly in front of the castle gate as she was one second off from their time—thus invisible to them. Cujo immediately sensed fear emanating from Schwärzentaube but not enough to stop him. It was as she thought: the fear increased when she arrived more than when she revealed the human force surrounding the castle even though she was not in the same time as they.
Cujo then called PepperCooper & Daisy to her and the fear increased—but STILL not enough, so she brought them into the same time. And as she suspected—it helped, but was not enough as Schwärzentaube was a strong-enough god to resist even the presence of three canines.
She had one last card to play—would it be enough?
