    As Blackmailer Ambassador Butterfly clearly needed his time, I finished my Uisce Beatha and closed my eyes for a long nap...

    (White Raven Inn)--"Where was I?" Mingo said blinking silently.
    --"Zumwhere in RL it zeemz," Frida said with a yawn. "You should just ztay here."
    --"Sometimes," Mingo said with a tilt of his head acknowledging her wise saying, "you are remarkably astute, dear apprentice."
    --"A Stute?" Lilith whispered to Gerta. "Is that something like an *******?"
    --"quiet!" gerta said shushing lilith.
    --"Names should be capitalized," Lilith grumbled sitting back in her chair.
    --"I wish I was here," Mingo said cryptically, a dreamy look coming to his eyes.
    hmmmmm seems a derogatory term has been replaced by asterisks.... use your imagination.

    Lily dips her head in the door and hears the serious and mysterious tones emanating but no resolve. Knowing full well she was arriving in in the middle of something she ducked out again vowing to return at a less mysterious moment.

    I open my eyes at the sounds, but seeing nothing of note, I close my eyes again, waiting until the story picks up again.

    (White Raven Inn)--"Who was that lady?" Lilith asked.
    --"She is a famous bard named Lily Byrd," Mingo answered. "I think she went out to read the logs out on the front porch."
    --"So, lemme see....."
    (Mr. Robin's Neighborhood)--Ambassador Butterfly, representing the Dryad nation, continued his thinly veiled demands. "Yes, there is one other thing you have, besides gold acorns, that we want. Access."
    --"Huh wha?" Mr. Robin said (wherever did he learn that?).
    --"Access to what," intoned the giant warrior, Tank (aka Jeb Stuart).
    --"We seek to expand trade to the sea south of the Forest to the west. We want to build a road to the Red Sea, which is a source of iron. It would be a direct road without exits."
    --"A Beltway?" one of the leaders of an industrious zone inquired.

    --"Yes...yes... part of our Beltway and Road initiative," nodded the ambassador.

    (Mr. Robin's Neighborhood)--"and what if you aren't granted access?" Jeb Stuart said with diplomatically menacing tones. "More caterpillars?"
    --"Oh no no no," Ambassador Butterfly said waving his tiny hand. "We would just withdraw from the edge of the Guaca Desert and leave you to the tender mercies of the armies of the LaundryTown Empire."
    --"what will they say, I wonder?" wondered mr. Robin.
    --"Oh, I know what they will tell you," Ambassador Butterfly answered, "they will say 'We're from the Government, and we are here to help you!' "

    (In a dark room in the Beige House, seat of power of the LaundryTown Empire)--"Who turned out the lights?" asked Old Emperor Puppet.
    --From an unseen recess in the gloom the 1st String answered. "Ah, yer Excellency, best keep you in the dark to protect your eyes. Just stay put in the chair there behind your desk and play with the modeling clay in front of you."
    --"Yes, eyes are fragile things you know. I like modeling clay."
    --"You do good work, maybe we could have an auction of your sculptures."
    --"My son is having an auction of his crayon drawings," The Old Emperor said. "But I'm not supposed to know about it."
    --"Indeed. It is good that you are in the dark."

    (Back onPossumRose)--Lyra and Mingo worked up enough courage to go out on the aft deck and talk to Tiny, the giant green mermaid who sat on the swim platform on the other side of the aft gunwale. "Hello," Tiny said, and then smiled, her lips kept together to hide her formidable carnivore teeth.
    --"Hail and well met!" Captain Lyra said. "I am Lyra, Captain of this boat, PossumRose, and this fellow is........"
    --"Mingo TheBard," Tiny interjected. "Renowned throughout the seas and with a high bounty from some mermaid tribes who prize singers and poets.....I won't turn you in though, I think you should continue living."
    (back in the White Raven Inn)--Frida scowled at this last revelation. "I don't believe it," she said. "I don't think any humanoid-eating tribe of mermaidzez would prize you at all, honored Mazter Bard."
    --"Well,"Mingo offered, not now, not here perhaps....."

    Blinking and looking confused, Lily Byrd steps into the pub. "Who is revealing the post? I thought they were for holding up the White Raven Inn? How can you reveal when you haven't vealed the post?" Many other questions flooded her thoughts while she sat on a stool. "So who's serving drinks during the intermission?"
