Its easy to do something Outrageous but the Posaronas do Outrageous things that make people happy. That’s not so easy to do.
The Posaronas do outrageous things that are Helpful. That’s not easy either.
They headed to Cat and Fiddle Island because Nana was going to do two outrageous things at once.
1. She was going to be very nice to the Cat. She knew that would make the Girls happy.
2. She was going to let the Cat teach her to play the Fiddle. That was outrageous because Nana doesn’t play any musical instruments at all – most especially she doesn’t play instruments with strings – EVER.
( Do not tell the Girls but Nana was smiling a little to herself because someone had told her that the strings on a fiddle were made from cat gut. )
The Girls were on Cat and fiddle Island to have cloaks made by the TINYKINS. The Cloaks are called NOW YOU SEE ME-NOW YOU DON’T.
Up in the Ice, one of the Ice Bears has gone nuts. She has decided she is Queen of the Ice Bears. Now, EVERYONE knows that Triflora does not have Queens and Kings.
There are Beings who think they are KIngs or Queens.
There are Beings who were Kings and Queens before they came to Triflora.
There are Beings whose family had been Kings and Queens.
BUT THERE ARE NO KINGS AND QUEENS ON TRIFLORA ANYMORE.
Triflora is what Nana calls – A DIVINE ANARCHY.
When someone won’t or can’t give up being a King or a Queen, they are given a home in the Royal Palace where they can wander about and do whatever they like – just so long as they don’t go around bossing anyone around getting uppity. They can even wear their crowns if they want.
The problem with the Ice Bear who thinks she is the Queen, is that she has talked the other Ice Bears into believing her. They are not thinking straight at all. As we all know Ice Bears can behave in the most peculiar ways. It is going to take something OUTRAGEOUS to fix this one up and the Posonaras have an Outrageous Plan.
The trick is to get Beloise off the Ice and into the Royal Palace without causing any more problems than necessary. Nana has decided to dress as an Ice Bear and play Music to Beloise while the Girls sneak up in their NOW YOU SEE ME NOW YOU DON’T Cloaks and lead that silly Ice Bear into a Bear Trap made of Spider Silk.
Nana didn’t get the hang of the Fiddle so the Cat has given her a little harp. It sounded so OUTRAGEOUS that Beloise just froze with shock when the Music started. When Nana started to sing as well as play the Harp, Beloise didn’t need to be tricked by the Cloaked Girls into the Bear Trap. She ran straight in and passed out. The 23 Flying Spiders flew off as fast as they could all the way to the Royal Palace where the thick stone walls protected all of them from the Singing and Harp Playing.
Whoa !! That was fully OUTRAGEOUS ! said the Bear and the Spiders.
The 3 Girls took the earplugs out of their ears, looked at one another and sighed:
Whoa! That was not just Outrageous. That was HORRIFYING!
But they did not tell Nana. They just hugged her – Bear Suit and All – and said;
Well done ! Nana. Well done! You are NOT a Duffer after all – no matter what Mad O’Brian says.
Meanwhile,the Cat had put down the Fiddle and was tiptoeing away. The Cat didn’t want anyone to think it was her fault that Nana played the Harp like that. She thought she might just go and play with Savage Dogs for a while. It would be better than teaching Music to a little old lady who didn’t even say thank you.
TEACHING violin is never a lot of fun for someone who plays as well as the Cat does but its not usually this OUTRAGEOUS.
