Seeks-Blossomaries [10 Thory 4261]

Sprillet disappeared.

Now, if he were really an effective cursed beast, he'd have disappeared in a puff of stinking smoke and spiralling spangles. He is not. He simply disappeared in a puff of squeaking Cani.

I suppose I can't blame Narngi for being upset at losing an engagement present. (As an important aside, if any Orren want to give me relationship presents, be assured that I will keep very careful track of them. (I'm not so sure about what would happen if I got engaged to a gaggle of Cani.))

So, this required everyone to go scouring Quelldrie House from the Pits of Readily Available Doom to the Distant yet Strangely Pleasant Summertime Pavilions. I, of course, as the only flier in the house, was the one who had to search the Distant yet Strangely Pleasant Summertime Pavilions. There were no blossomaries there.

(Note to self: we must get another flier, either a Zi Ri or an Orren with a flight spell, but not Seeks-Whatevers Strenata, even though she is the only Orren I know who has a flight spell.)

Eventually Sprillet was found, sleeping in a tangle of Cani stockings. He had, evidently, crept into Anoof's dresser from behind, pushed the bottom drawer a little ways out from behind, clambered into it, pushed the second drawer a little ways out, and continued until he could continue no more, neither up nor down, which left him in the stocking drawer. He did what any sensible cursed beast would do under the circumstances, which is to say, demolish all of Anoof's stockings and then go to sleep in the ruins.

Now Anoof is wearing Narngi's stockings, which do not fit perfectly well. And he has another reason to wish that the wedding would hurry up: then Sprillet will go live with the fiance who gave Sprillet to Narngi, and that fiance can take care of the assorted disasters.
