Disciples of Otis,
Brother Oliver here.
When we last left off, I had beaten Sir Thomas upstairs to Kitty Valhalla only to find that the wiener collage was no longer there. Oddly, this seemed to perplex Sir Thomas as well, and he seemed to be in a big hurry to get out of Kitty Valhalla after he inspected the wall and noticed something to his right. After Sir Thomas left, I went in to take a closer look. As I was looking to the right and trying to figure out what had apparently disturbed Thomas, Brother Henry finally joined me in Valhalla. When I asked him what had taken him so long he simply said, “That kid has some moves you wouldn’t believe…”.
I really couldn’t see anything at all. I decided that Sir Thomas must have been faking his concern to distract me from the fact that he had obviously taken down and hidden the wiener collage while Brother H and I weren’t watching. I said, “C’mon Brother Henry. Let’s get out of here.”, and then I turned and walked to the stairs. Brother Henry started to follow me, but then, stopping and looking back over his shoulder, he said, “Wait… what’s that?”.
Brother Henry returned to the wall and peeked behind the curtain on the left. As he did so he involuntarily exclaimed, “WHAT THE FUR!!?”
I moved toward Brother Henry, and I’m a little embarrassed to say it, but when I saw what he was looking at I might have peed myself just a little bit. I realized that when Thomas had approached the wall and looked to his right, he had been looking at the bucket full of his minions. He must have noticed the creepy, smiley thing was missing, and he must not have expected that… which meant…
Brother Henry looked back toward me and said, “You want to go downstairs right now!?” Almost before he finished speaking I replied, “Yep!”
When we reached the living room our heads were spinning. Brother Henry said, “Do you think? I mean, could that thing have taken the collage down… or maybe… could it have been the one that made the collage in the first place? Wait. It’s not real, right? It… it just can’t be, can it?” As I started to answer Brother Henry a voice suddenly said, “Hey guys!” Brother Henry jumped about four feet in the air and I peed myself a little bit again. It was Sir Thomas. He said, “Yeah, so, I think I have been hogging Kitty Valhalla lately so… well you guys are welcome to hang out up there all you want. I think I am going to start spending more time somewhere else… like here…”, and then he turned and squeezed himself under the couch.
So now Brother Henry and I really don’t know what to think. There is one thing we do know though. Right now neither of us is really interested in going back up to Kitty Valhalla. Even a cat’s curiosity has limits.
So Sayeth Brother Oliver
