|Chapter 8 ~ Meeting Thor on Thorsday|
The God of thunder,
Thor, arrives at midnight and spends much of the night drinking with
After a long evening, the elders of the village discuss what
has happened and who might be to blame. SpaceDog tells of his quest to
find the stolen necklace and new evidence turns up. That night,
they explore the Water Works and find more than what they expected.
[Shadowfax] "Did I miss anything interesting?"
[Shadowfax] "Thor's here. It must be Thorsday."
[Thor] "Here's to Cheating, Stealing, Fighting and Drinking! If you cheat, may you cheat death; If you steal, may you steal a woman's heart; If you fight, may you fight for a brother or sister; and if you drink, may you drink with me! Cheers!"
[Jean Vanadis] "That's my son. Life is always a party or a fight with him."
[~~Dee~~] "It's Thorsday!!! Hoo Raa Raa!"
[Thor] "Where is that mangy mutt of a dad?"
[~~Dee~~] "He's... about to pass out his blue bottle stock to the village elders in the dining hall. No need to bother them till later, if you know what I mean."
[Lullaby Halo] "I remember seeing that necklace many many moons cycles ago. It has jewels that shone like the stars in the heavens. Was it not made by 4 dwarves?"
[SpaceDog] "Yes, that's the one. Its called Brísingamen. Odin gave it to his latest wife and had it in the family vault."
[Jean Vanadis pouting] "That necklace was once given to me by our father, Njord, but I had to give it to Odin because he didn't want his ex-wife to have it, thinking it would look better on his wife Frigg for reasons I'm still not happy about."
[SpaceDog] "I know you were all at The Water Works shortly before coming here. Doesn't anybody remember anything unusual about the place?"
[SpaceDog] "You're saying something didn't smell right and that's what you saw?"
[Jon Morris] "They close before midnight except on Saturnday ever since a black elf was killed there a while back, so tonight, we should pay them a visit."
[SpaceDog] "It would be best if my team does this in order to not put doubt on you elders. Do you mind? Odin did ask me to find the damn thing."
[Jean Vanadis] "I can say we are all in agreement since you were given the task of finding it. We will be waiting to hear from you later and bid you good night. We will finish our drinks of course, then I will speak with my son."
[Jean Vanadis] "Aren't you going to give your mother a hug?"
[Thor] "Mother, I was here last week. Do you miss me already?"
[Thor] "Anything to report or do I need to return tomorrow? Damn this is good. Did you make this or did Cyn?"
[SpaceDog] "Cyn has almost got me beat with her cooking. She made that just the way I like it. We are very close to finding more then we bargained for. Stay the night if you wish but I've no companion to offer at this time, only a good place to rest."
[Thor] "I will take you up on that."
[~~Dee~~] "Dad, you want me to wake him or..."
[SpaceDog] "Have some fun with him when he wakes up, but, he is a lot stronger after sleeping. Remember that."
[Thor] "You know I come here once a week to be with you, so don't look so sad."
[Root] "I.. am ... groot....."
[~~Dee~~] "Errand? 29 or 6 to 4?"
[SpaceDog] "42 or 25 or 24!"
[~~Dee~~] "Dad, you are one strange papa. One day I will figure out your paradox code and when I do, that QETS is mine, just like you said when father Harri was dying and you promised to look after the 4 of us."
[SpaceDog] "Yes, I remember that day like all days in my minds eye. He loved this place and when he handed it to me, I said you would be well cared for. I know you want to travel with me and soon you will, but for the time being, I need you looking after this place at night while you continue studying the books I left you. How far have you gotten?"
[~~Dee~~] " 'Quantum Mechanics' I've got down 'tout suite' and still working on 'Theories of Time Travel', 'Conquering the Singularity' and '42 Ways to Travel the Cosmos.' But I have no clue why you would have me read 'Moby Dick', 'The Oddity' or 'Stranger in a Strange Land'... What are they?"
[SpaceDog] "The first 4 you must learn to operate the QETS. I'll give you one more when you've finished those 4. The last 3 are strictly for pleasure, but, once you understand the meaning behind the writers story, you will better understand others and yourself as an explorer."
[~~Dee~~] "Where did you get the groot? Is it new from the seed pods that I heard and "feel" drop into the spa earlier? We have a visitor..."
[Shadowfax] "I know this is late, but I feel the Morris stone near by and someone is trying to use it or no it's being moved. I can feel it's power and it frightening."
[SpaceDog] "The groot was from those seeds and I sent on an errand. Please get Robin, LeeZee, Panda Kitti, all 4 male dogs and contact Angela. I'm sure we may need her powers. Shadowfax, can you point us in the right direction?"
[Shadowfax] "Yes, it's close to or inside The Water Works."
[SpaceDog] "Everyone! We're going hunting, not for adventure or beast, but for part of one of the 6 most powerful objects in the known universe. It is a Morris stone, a piece of what's more commonly called an infinity stone. I hid it in the Brísingamen necklace but was discovered and stolen from Odins private vault. It's location has been sensed by Shadowfax and we are going to retrieve it. If you find it, do not touch it under any condition because it will destroy you. It's just too powerful for mortals. Angela, can you cloak Lady Robin?"
[Angela] "I can cloak the entire group if you want me to."
[SpaceDog] "Robin, record the event in your memory and only be a bystander."
[SpaceDog] "Panda Kitti, I would like for you to stay with LeeZee and if our thief gets hostile, let LeeZee know. You 2 will stay together. LeeZee, you have awakened and it may be your first time using your power to weaken or immobilize this thief, but remember, I believe the thief is female and very dark in nature, so be careful. Only take what is needed and no more. The dogs will then immobilize her along with some of my magic if needed."
[LeeZee] "How will I know when I've taken enough?"
[SpaceDog] "You will just know and remember what Istanna and Bonnie Jean passed on to you, OK? Dogs! Initiate pattern Sierra Alpha Delta if things get out of control, otherwise use K9 defense mode."
[Cyborg Dogs] "Ultra-vision and infra-vision locked in and ready, commander."
