We had not heard from Wee doggie after that, it seems the loss over shadowed us. We did not want to going running off on adventures, especially without Renee, she has been with us on all our adventures so far, it did not feel right and life was low.
But soon our paths crossed again. Wee doggie said "Enough of this moping around! Renee will not stand for it! Let's go on a big adventure, the best one yet, let's do it for Renee!!" I squealed loudly and Big fella cheered! Wee doggie was right, Renee would not stand for it and we did miss wee doggie so! So off we trotted!
I was trying to take photos of wee doggie but he flatly refused saying he did not look his best as he was up all night with Renee drinking sloe gin for her birthday, talking and laughing into the night, planning about today's adventure and how much she was looking forward to it. I was wasn't sure whether to believe him or not when he stopped.
"Go up the steps, you two!"
We couldn't see any steps. Just a bunch of over run ivy.
"Look again." wee doggie said.
and there underneath the tangled vines and Ivy leaves were some hidden steps. We walked up them , through the ivy until you could not see anything else. Soon we came to a clearing and to a strange looking well.
" OK then! Here we are, now just jump straight down that well and we will be where we need to be! You first!" I saw wee doggie nodding at me.
" I beg your pardon! I don't think so! That's so dangerous!" I cried as I peered down the well.
"Renee wouldn't let me go through with that!"
"Oh she would!" came the reply and as I looked swiftly over my shoulder, I could have sworn I saw Renee and wee doggie wink at each other and push me straight down the well!!! I screamed as I fell, only to hear the distance "HAR, HAR!! bellowing from the top of the well, and a laughing face and a waving hand as we sank farther down. Wee doggie and big fella were above me, Wee doggie reading a newspaper intently and above him, big fella flapping his hands by his sides like birds wings and giggling away to himself. He was having a ball!
I thought we would never stop falling, until THUD!
"Ow!" My backside took the brunt and it hurt!
Wee doggie floated gracefully down as did Big fella, smile as wide as the world. "Why didn't he fall on his arse like me?" I cried, outraged.
"Because he was flapping his wings, you silly girl! Now come on, look, do you see what is happening?"
The bottom of the tunnel was spreading away into another world.
"Let's have a singsong, to help the magic along!" barked wee doggie. "After three! One, two three!"
as we sang the tune, the wall disappeared, brick by brick only to be replaced green fields and hills!
and there in front of us, flying proudly through the wind were a display of most beautiful kites!
"Now, for the next part of our adventure, we are all going to have to fly over the clouds to reach the next part of our destination." Wee doggie cried, throwing a weary look in my direction, and muttering to big fella about how to control his other half, meaning me, when on a outing.
"I heard that!" I growled and wanting to prove them both wrong, I started waving my arms and hands maniacally like birds wings and running about like a woman possessed shouting "See, I know what to do! I flap my wings! So there!HAHA!" I was smugness personified. but my smugness was shifting as wee doggie and big fella howled laughing at me.
"No dear, you just hold on to the end of a kite. That's how you fly here! Hehehe!" Wee doggie teetered to himself as he and big fella grabbed hold of a tail and flew up up and away! "Wait for me!" I cried and stumbled and fumbled, all fingers and thumbs until I finally caught one and followed suit!
Away we flew!
Higher and higher we seemed to have soared, and I felt we were going up to the planets!
I heard Big fella shout out, "I'm The King of The World!" only for Wee doggie to say, that was a line from Titanic, one of the best films ever made and not to confuse epic lines like the one just roared with kite flying! No messing with Wee Doggie!
It is given every six months of the year and the time has come to return this gift. The mermaids use the lighthouse as a look out for human hunting the pirate treasure. It is within these months that humans unexpectedly, for both them and us, end up here by boat with no business to do so!"
"He makes sure the the pirates treasure stays buried in the ground. Come now, the time is nearing!"
We walked down to the sea front. "Here is where the lighthouse will be replaced. Lets move back away, he should be coming any second!"
After the initial shock had worn off, wee doggie asked if we would like to see where the pirates treasure was buried. Big fella shot of like a dart, so off we trooped!
I looked at wee doggie in fear. What would happen?
Suddenly a face appeared at the bottom of the elm tree.
"Hello there! you must be very tired, come lie by me for a while and rest your wary feet"
The tree was right, big fella was already snoring on his feet as he can do at times and wee doggie was yawning and settled himself down beside the tree trunk. I placed big fella to sleep by the tree and lay on his big chest. He truly is my very own giant and I am so lucky to have him.
"Wee doggie, do you have to go?"
"Yes, I have a pedicure appointment and you know I have not missed one yet!"
"That's true. Thank you wee doggie for our wonderful adventure for Renee. We must doing it again soon! I felt like she was right there with us the whole time!"
Before he left, he paused and smiled at us both. " HAR HAR!"
I woke up Big fella told tell him Renee was wee doggie even for a spilt second but he just snored louder.
What a wonderful adventure we had!
Now before we go our separate ways after this funfilled adventure please sit back let the following music fill your ears and remember Renee, the lady who could never be forgotten.
