Celine was sitting in the computer room reading an e-mail from Anna. She said
that Prince Dirk and Geoffrey Blackpool with Vector were here in our world
looking for pieces of the monocle. It was mysteriously broken up, so Vector
said. Celine got up and looked around the room and went to look in the rest of
the house. She was in the basement when she thought she could hear something,
but what was it? She came upstairs. As soon as she in the kitchen she knew what
it was. The dog was barking her head off. Someone was here that shouldn't be.
Celine went to the front room to grab the cordless phone, in case there was
Brandy barked on. It wasn't her, "I'm caught around this pole AGAIN". It was
more like "Someone is here and I don't know them."
Celine went out through the backdoor to find Dirk and Geoffrey Blackpool with
Vector standing in the yard with Brandy at the end of her chain showing all her
teeth to them. "Hey dog wonder, cool it." The Italian Greyhound/Terrier mix just
looked at her co-owner as if she was nuts.
"It's all right. They aren't totally harmless, but they are OK." The dog laid
down and just looked at them.
Geoffrey bent down to the dog's level. He moved his hand out to Brandy.
"I wouldn't do that Geoff."
"Why?" asked the prince. The dog jumped up and ran over to the porch and
picked up something red and went back over to Geoffrey. She dropped it on the
ground in front of the Prince. The Prince very slowly picked it up and looked at
it. It was round and there was drool all over it. "What is it?"
It's a Kong, it's her chew toy. Though she wants you to throw it. Don't get
too wild, she is on a short chain."
"Why do you have the dog chained anyway?" asked Vector. "They were meant to
"Well not here in Saint Paul, Minnesota. If they caught her roaming around,
they would cart her off to the dog pound. Then I would be murdered by my house
mates. Though not a bad idea at times, I mean being murdered, but that is a
no-no here too."
"Enough of this. We've come for the monocle piece," yelled Dirk.
"Yes, I know. I haven't come across it yet. Your turn to come in and look for
it. Don't mess the place up, I just cleaned." Celine opened the back screen door
and let them in.
"I want to play with the puppy," said Geoffrey.
"You'll be sorry, Geoff. She won't stop bugging you to throw it."
"This will be fun," said the Prince.
"Ugh Geoff, if anyone asks you what you are doing in the yard," Celine said
as she came off the porch to him, "just say you are my friend from CA. Don't say
Celine's friend. You are Gayle's friend."
"Who is Gayle?" asked Dirk.
"That is my birth given name. Celine is my net name. Don't say Prince in
front of your name either."
"Why? I am a Prince. I have the right to use it."
"Not here in Saint Paul or at any of the Listians' places can you use it. The
only people that use that are in Europe and only Vector sounds European. Unless
you are the guy going by the symbol now, his first name was Prince. Or if you
are Charles, Henry or William or a few others. You guys can't use it. They will
cart you off to Saint Peter if you aren't careful."
"What is Saint Peter?" asked Geoff.
"The state mental hospital, so don't say anything that isn't necessary. OK?"
The rest went into the house. Celine could hear Geoffrey laughing as he threw
the Kong around the yard for the dog.
"OK Vector, do your thing and find it and get out of here."
"Now Celine, that isn't a nice thing to say." Said Dirk.
"Well after the way you treated some of us, I am surprised that I didn't just
try shooting you first and asking questions later. By the way, it was your fault
that Greystone got away. The push kick I hit him with wasn't meant to keep him
out like a light forever, you twit. I'm surprised that he hit his so-called head
on the trees in the first place. So it's your fault he got away, but blame me if
you want. You bird brain." They stepped from the kitchen into the dinning room/
"Bird brain, you can't call me that, you little bug," yelled Dirk as he
reached around and grabbed Celine's shirt. As soon as he picked her off the
ground, her feet started to swing. The right foot connected with a very soft
spot on a male. Vector even cringed. Dirk dropped Celine and she landed on her
feet. Not too gracefully, but on her feet.
"I don't like to be picked up Dirk, don't ever do it again. You can try to
mess with me, but it's a semi-bad idea. I'm in a bad mood and when I am this
way, that means I am not nice. Vector, find the piece and then get out. I can't
believe I am trying to get you out of here. Man, am I in a worse mood than I
thought." She just glared at them.
Vector closed his eyes and started to mumble some words. Vector opened his
eyes and they started to look around the room. Nothing could be seen in the two
"Vector, what have you done now?" yelled Dirk.
"Now wait a second. It doesn't mean that it's not here. It means it's not in
these rooms. Cool your jets. Man, I can't believe I use your name as my
passwords at work. Let's try the computer room."
"How do you use my name at work?" asked Dirk.
"After I sign my name on, I have Pdirk as the first password and then I sign
my name on again and put in Blackpool as the second password." Celine walked
around the TV set and into a doorway off the front room. "Hey Vector, I've got
something glowing in here."
"That is it." yelled Dirk. The two came around the TV to the doorway. The
room was one massive computer and CD's piled everywhere. In the middle of a
cabinet full of CD's there was a glow. Vector stepped forward.
"No let me get it. If you break anything I will have to lie to Bogg how it
happened. If I go for it and break it I won't have to lie."
"So who is Bogg?" asked Dirk.
"He one of the people I share the house with. He is my best friend. Though
I'm sure that he will deny knowing me sometimes," Celine said with a laugh. "He
and the other guy that live here are the ones that taught me Tae Kwon Do. Jay
has a black belt and Bogg has a red one, though he is trying for his black in a
few weeks. So don't trip on the bricks." She walked across the room to the
cabinet and got down on her knees. She reached in to the stack of CD's and found
a sliver of glass in between the stacks. "So here you are, my pretty." She
turned around to the visitors. "So who gets the prize?"
Dirk stuck out his hand to her.
"But first you have to do something for me." Celine got up and walked out of
the room. As she passed Dirk, she slapped her hand on his. "Here is five for you
and no change." Celine kept on walking past the Prince and the Wizard. She
opened a door off the dining room and went through it. They could hear her going
upstairs. The two could hear her moving around above them. Then there was no
movement, but they heard her say, "Hey Geoff, I'll give you a break from the
dog. Come into the house and then you can leave." As Celine came down the
stairs, Geoffrey came into the house.
"You were right, she won't let you stop throwing that thing," said Geoffrey
as Celine came out of the doorway. She carried something in her hand.
I did warn you," said Celine with a laugh. She put the object on the table by
the door to the stairs. "Now here is what I want in return for the monocle
piece." She was smiling a little too much. "I just put batteries in here so this
will last a long time. So if you don't get it right, I will keep it up until you
do or Bogg and Jay get home. So this is it. Vector I want to record you saying
BARKIN, as you did when you beat Dirk in that game. Dirk I want you to say HI
and BYE for me and Geoffrey I want you to say MAKE ME A CHEESE SANDWICH. Very
easy, gentle beings. You can do it the right way the first time and you can be
out of here in a couple of seconds." Celine was grinning from ear to ear.
"Barkin is all you want?" asked Vector.
"No I want BARKIN, as you said it when you won the game for your hat."
"You know about that?" asked Vector.
"Yes, and lots more. Now are you going to do it or not?"
"Yes," said the Wizard. He had the look of not liking be blackmailed into
something. "I am ready." Celine just smiled at him. "BARKIN" said the wizard.
Celine's smile became bigger. It looked like she was holding in a squeal. She
looked at Dirk.
Vector moved so Prince Dirk Blackpool was closer to the object on the table.
Dirk stepped closer and said, "hi," and waited a second and said, "bye".
"No Dirk, that's not what I wanted. I wanted the way you said it to the twits
in the South that one time. I want the good Dirk Blackpool. The one that will
spit blood in your face. Now try it again."
Dirk stood there for a bit, looking like he would blow his top for the
zillionth time in his lifetime. Then he spoke, "HI," then he said, "BYE." That
time Celine did squeal with delight. Dirk moved away and Geoffrey moved up to
"MAKE ME A CHEESE SANDWICH, VECTOR!" The Prince just smiled at the woman. She
squealed once more. "I got it right?" asked Geoffrey.
"You bet you did Geoff. I love you guys, yeah, even you Vector." She reached
around to the back pocket of her blue jeans and removed the sliver. She handed
it to Dirk, "By your command, M'Lord."
"Vector, get us out of here, before she thinks of something else," said Dirk
as he pulled the monocle piece away. The three stepped back and disappeared.
Celine turned the tape record off on her boom box. She smiled, "Now this is
going to be fun. Off to the computer I go. Everyone is going to love a copy of
this." She took the tape out of the box and headed off for the computer room The
setup was always up and ready to go.
