Disciples of The Leader Otis,
Brother Henry here.
When we last left off, I was trying to sneak out of the room and head up to Kitty Valhalla, but I was drawn back in when Thomas suddenly executed a perfect Super Wheelie. I couldn’t leave after that. I had to get in close to see what would happen next. And what happened was, on the next pass of the Artificial Bird, Thomas shouted, “Hallelujah Paw Raise!”, and then did what he had said.
Thomas then ran over by the couch, got into a Squatting Tiger stance, and shouted, “Forepaws of Fury!” He then proceeded to rapidly swat the artificial bird with his forepaws.
Quickly, Thomas repositioned himself in the center of the room, and as the bird passed again he went airborne shouting, “Dragon Kick!” I could not look away.
After landing the Dragon Kick Thomas paused for a moment. It looked as if he was turning inward, calling upon something deep within him. I heard Brother Oliver say, “Brother Henry! I think he’s going to do it!” After that, several things happened at once. I felt Brother Oliver plow into me from behind, and I fell to the floor. The small camera that Brother Oliver was carrying in his mouth was knocked free and went sailing across the room. just as it passed Sir Thomas, Thomas yelled, “FLYING SQUIRREL!”, and launched himself skyward. the camera hit the ground underneath him and went off, immortalizing the moment.
Sir Thomas landed, but it was clear he wasn’t done yet. Brother Oliver rushed over and grabbed his camera as Thomas let out another shout of “FLYING SQUIRREL!”
Again Thomas landed and again he yelled, “FLYING SQUIRREL!”
Mustering up what must have been the last of his reserves, Sir Thomas let out one last shout of “FLYING SQUIRREL!”, and then flew for the fourth time.
As he landed the fourth Flying Squirrel, Sir Thomas assumed a sitting position. After expending all that energy, I thought he would go straight to laying down, but our resident knight did not even appear to be winded. The fire that had appeared in his eyes just before his amazing display of cathletiscism still burned, and Brother Oliver and I were completely in awe of him. Brother Oliver finally broke the silence by saying, “Sir Thomas? Where did THAT come from!?” Sir Thomas replied with four simple words, “Long live The Queen!”
After making his statement, Sir Thomas got up and exited the room. Neither Brother Oliver nor I even acknowledged that we had just missed our opportunity to investigate Kitty Valahalla. We were too overwhelmed by what we had just witnessed to care. I said, “Brother Oliver… do you think it’s possible that… could he have been somehow tapping into her spirit? I mean…”
Brother Oliver interrupted my thought saying, “Brother Henry, all I know is I have never seen anything like that except when she was still with us. Even that look in his eyes at the end… that fierceness… I…” Brother Oliver trailed off into silence for a moment and then continued, “I don’t know what we just saw Brother Henry, but I only have one thing to say about it.” And as Brother Oliver said it, I joined him. In one voice we loudly proclaimed, “Long live The Queen!”
So Says Brother Henry
