KLCaley’s #writrphoto Approach.

Last week we left Morgarna, Merlin and Gail jumping away from sorting out a history medling, serial killer from the other side of the universe. They jump just in time for Christmas.

So here we are at KLCaley’s#writephoto.

After they had drunk in the view they walked along the beach to a fish and chip bar that Merlin knew and they sat outside and ate their super as they watched the sun set.
“That was the best fish and chips I’ve ever had. I am so full!” Sighed Gail rubbing her tummy and finishing her vodka and orange.
Morgarna sat back and lit a cigarette and watched the moon come up.
“It’s getting chilly ladies let’s go and find our Christmas home. Come on follow me!” Merlin got up and was heading up the slipway towards the village.


Alley.

They followed Merlin up the streets and then they turned down an alley which was cold damp and mossy …. The place was lined with terraced cottages with mostly green doors… One cottage even had a satellite dish on it. They went straight past that one and up to the one at the top of the alley.
Merlin handed Gail the key to the door and asked her to lead the way. Opening the door she was delighted with the scene that greeted them. It was warm and cosy, there was a huge tree decked with lights and faires! A huge roaring fire with Christmas Stockings hanging from the mantle,five marked with initials.
There was a table all set for Christmas dinner and in the kitchen was Gail’s Mum and Dad preparing vegetables, the sweet smell of mince pies filling the whole house.
“Gail, Honey, you made it, we were so hoping you would.”
Gail looked at the place and her parents, the sound of the rest of the family upstairs .
“Who are your friends, come on honey come on in you’re letting the cold in!”
Gail’s dad put down the brussel sprouts he was peeling and he came across the room his arms extended , Gail’s Mum hot on his heels beaming from ear to ear!
Gail finally grasped the fact that this was as real as it could be in this mad new world she now moved in and thought to herself….”hell yes I’ll go with this” as she jumped into her dad’s arms.


“Which Christmas is this?” whispered Morgarna looking Merlin in the eye.
“The one before she killed herself, she always said she wished she’d gone home that Christmas, things might of been very different if she had….. “
Morgarna looked from Merlin to Gail and her parents then said….”but we can’t change history can we Hun?”
Merlin looked at her and replied, ” no we can’t but this way she gets her wish.”
Morgarna smiled as Gail took her and Merlin by the arm. “Mum, Dad these are my dear friends Merlin and Morgarna “
“Well Gail’s Mum beamed welcome both of you you are most welcome I hope you are all staying there’s plenty of food for tomorrow. “
Morgarna smiled and said they’d love to stay.
“Right who’s for a drink , Morgarna, Merlin what can I get you? Are you still drinking vodka and orange Gail?”
Asked her mum.
They all sat down in the living room with their drinks and they all had a cigarette, in fact Gail’s Mum got out her special Christmas stock of Sobrainie cocktail cigarettes. Merlin did his best not to look too grumpy as they all smoked…. His Whiskey and ginger helped soften his mood, while Morgarna knocked back the Bacardi and coke, they all relaxed and chatted , then the Christmas episode of Dr Who came on the TV and Gail’s two brothers came charging down the stairs to watch and eat the nuts a d chocolate!
Everyone, yes even Merlin looked happy.


Two days later after much fun, games and eating and drinking too much Merlin said “Well it’s been really great but we must be on our way.”
Gail was going to complain but obviously had second thoughts and stopped, realising she had been given the most beautiful gift by her friends. The Christmas she never had and really wished she had!
“Yes she smiled… Mum, Dad it’s been wonderful but we must be off!”
So after much hugging and kissing they left the cottage.
As they walked up the alley a cold wind swept past them …it left Morgarna and Merlin untouched but Gail felt a soft warm presence …love.
The cottage stood cold dank and empty suffering from years of neglect, empty like most of the cottages in the alley, only three were still inhabited the rest were just empty shells full of memories.


As they reached the top of the alley Morgarna took hold of Gail and whispered “that was lovely wasn’t it love? come on I’ll race you back to the beach.”
As they reached the beach the Anomaly arrived “Okay they all shouted grabbing hands they jumped?”


As they landed they found themselves, not in the lab but on the approach to a large, almost-symetrical, castle with cylindrical towers dominating the landscape.
“Wooo! Squealed Gail, it’s a fairy castle! “
“I doubt that Hun” said Morgarna lighting a cigarette and taking a drag!
No said Merlin ….”I suppose we just better take a closer look.”
The all walked arm in arm toward the entrance.

Approach

K.L.Caley’s#writephoto. Glimpse. Catch up part 2.

Last time we saw Morgarna, Merlin and co they were stuck in the dark ..

Carefully they edged their up the hallway feeling for a door or an opening of some sort. As they neared the end of the corridor they found a door, letting themselves in they found a young man sat infront of a huge flat screen TV busy playing a game 🎮.
Morgarna and Merlin recognised that this was the young man who the ghosts at the cemetery had described as the lad the Entity had entered.
Morgarna was feeling a tad uneasy….an unusual feeling for her but since the loss of powers she had had this feeling a couple of times and she was not impressed by it at all.


Merlin felt along the wall and found the light switch! As the light came on the young man shouted “put that light out please and dont stop me playing this game, it the only way I can keep the voice out of my head!…please it’s such a nasty piece of work it keeps threatening to make me murder someone, this game is the only way to quiten him.”
“Really” asked Merlin as he turned the light back off. ” What’s it doing now?” Actually I think he’s asleep the game seems to have lulled him into a deep sleep, I am actually scared to move incase he starts again. What in God’s name is he/it?”

“Now you are going to have to go with us on this … he’s actually an Entity from another galaxy and time. A nasty piece of work ….a real rouge and an escaped prisoner from Zenex 4 a prison satellite off of the third planet from Xod a far off Sun”. Merlin finished raising an eyebrow to Morgarna.


Morgarna handed the lad a cup of coffee and a bacon sandwich , “here” she said, “you look tired how long have you been playing this game now ?”
The lad looked at his two visiters and said , “Oh! Wow ! Just what I needed thank you ” taking the sandwich from Morgarna he looked at his watch and said ” four hours now …. Look okay if he’s an Entity from a prison satellite off of planet “Zog” in a far away galaxy what is he doing here and how do you know about him? ” He ended taking a bite on his sarnie !


Merlin sat down next to the lad and asked, “So this game seems to quieten him?”
The lad laughed ” it does more than quieten him it sends him to sleep, spark out ….but I can move, or stop the game or he takes over…it really is exhausting!”
Morgarna slumped down onto the sofa as well and asked, “okay if I keep you fed and watered can you keep it up? “
” Yes mam that’s the easy bit the trouble is when he wakes up and starts making nasty demands of me at least while I am playing this gruesome war game he’s sleeping and happy but it can’t last forever! “

Merlin made sure Morgarna was happy holding the fort and used the Anomaly to go back to the lab.


An hour later Merlin landed back in the dark lounge …”Right young man what’s your name?”
“Ryan”
Merlin said down and continued, ” I have just been back to our lab and contacted Zenex 4 , they were delighted to hear we have their escapee safely contained here! Apparently his name is Ceron and he’s a physopath who happily inhabits any host he can find and cheerfully murders anyone he fancies. This guy has left a trail across time and space that makes Vlad the Impaler and Ghingus Khan look like sweethearts.”
“Wow! ” Said Ryan “and he’s in me…Sheesh that’s not good , luckily I have not murdered anyone “
“So what’s happening now? ” Morgarna interrupted .
“They are on it Hun, a recovery team is on its way to these coordinates as we speak. So if you can hold on a little longer Ryan he’ll soon be dealt with! “


Morgarna lit a cigarette and poured everyone a Bacardi and Coke from her flask.
“Do you mind not smoking in here” Ryan asked politely.
“Er no I want a cig and I am having one” Morgarna snaped back.
Ryan when to argue but Merlin cut in to stop any trouble, “Let it go mate when we go you will even know we’ve been here!
Ryan looked from Morgarna to Merlin and decided to keep quiet!


All of a sudden the room was full of white flashes and horrendously loud claxons. Then a blue light hit Ryan and his whole body twitched and rose a few foot above the sofa…. Then all of a sudden there was a terrible screaming and wailing as a nasty looking purple form was pulled from Ryan’s body…
It was horrible and the entity screamed and howled and fought. Poor Ryan was in agony and was screaming too.
All of a sudden there was silence and Ryan slump down on the sofa. A metallic voice suddenly filled the room. “Merlin and Morgarna, thank you, we are indebted to you both, this evil being had caused so much trouble we will ensure he never escapes again. Zenex 4 recovery team, over and out”


The lights in the house were now back on and all was looking very cosy, the television was off and the game was put away. Ryan was sleeping the sleep of the innocent. Morgarna waved her hand over Ryan’s head and said ….sweety pie you will remember absolutely none of this.


Later Morgarna and Merlin walked back to the cemetery to sort things out for John and Annette and to pick up Gail.

“Aren’t these doors just gorgeous?” Morgarna asked Merlin as they approached the chapel. “Yes” replied Merlin “someone has put a beautiful wreath on them”

“Yes” replied Morgarna “that looks like Gail’s handywork to me ”

As they approached the doors, they flew open and Annette , John and Annette’s father floated out to greet them. “Oh! Morgarna it’s wonderful my father is back he is his kind and loving self again . We have all somehow seen what has happened to us all and we closer than ever. “
“So what’s your next move” Morgarna asked lighting another cigarette.
Annette stepped forward and said “we are going to stay here with all the new friends we have met here in this beautiful graveyard…. “
“Yes” said all the other ghosts and the first thing we are going to do is celebrate Christmas here .
” Look” cried Gail. “See here through this frosted window, can you see a family table and festive decorations .

Glimpse – Image by KL Caley.

So they all said their goodbyes Morgarna, Merlin and Gail left the Ghosts to their Christmas and wonder out the gates past the house where they had left Ryan in time to see all his family arriving with festive food and presents!


“Right Gail” Merlin said ” where do you fancy spending Christmas your choice young lady. “
Gail thought for a second and then said “As long as I am with you two anywhere will be absolutely fine .
The Anomaly came into view and they jumped!


They landed on the shore somewhere, water with the occasional island just out of focus. The horizon is a golden colour.
“Oh! Babes” murmured Morgarna, “This is so beautiful”

This is a catch up on Morgarna and co for KLCaley’s#writephoto.

The Alley…well that for me to know and you to guess?

K.L.Caley’s #writephotoUpsiszing.

It all happening this week and that’s why Morgarna and co are running late …never mind here we go! So back to pick up where we left them all last week.

“So how are we going to get into the Castle” asked Gail as Merlin set her down .
“Don’t you worry my dear I have a plan.” Merlin waved his hand and just out of nowhere two beautiful horses appeared one white and one black both with fine reins, bridels, saddles and full, plush saddle bags.
“Way to go” Screamed Gail, “not bad for the guy who said no random magic?”
“This is not random magic magic this is much needed magic. If we are to get into the castle and rescue Morgarna we need to appear wealthy and well connected. Which horse would you like Gail or should I say the lady Abigail “
Gail looked at the two horses and said “Oh! My full name get you! …can I have the black one please he looks so fine and those eyes they are so deep. “
Merlin raised an eyebrow and the saddle on the black stallion became a fur clad sidesaddle fit for a lady. Gail let Meriln help her up onto the horse, ” can you ride Gail” he asked?
“No” Gail replied, Merlin put his head to one side smiled, ” you can now and well, he’s called Bayard he responds well to all commands. “
Gail shook her head as she turned Bayard round as Merlin mounted Drifter.
“Merlin this is amazing I feel one with Bayard he is a wonderful animal, hey Bay, can I call you Bay, let’s fly!”
Merlin laughed, and nudged Drifter “come now to the castle. “


Early afternoon a farmer was on his mobile talking to his wife. “Honestly I was only out of the cab for five minutes when I heard it being driven off, I chased it but it was really flying. Yes hun report it to the police but I doubt they’ll do anything about it…. yes! We might get a crime number, true , true.

Put the kettle on I need a break!” he half laughed as he hung up and headed off back towards the farmhouse.


The Entity ( let’s call him Bill) had just arrived in town he dumped the tractor in the middle of the high street and made straight for the cemetery.
He was looking for Merlin and it wasn’t to wish him a good day.
Bill decided to take the body of a young man who was taking a short cut through the cemetery. Oh! He thought to himself this body is much better fed than the last one.
Reaching down ‘Bill stuck his hand into the earth and pulled an young but very dead infantry man from his grave by the war memorial. He breathed into the skeleton and immediately it morphed into a
ghostly version of who he had been.
“Merlin, where is he ? I need to know, is he in the crypt….is he hiding from me?” He ended on a roar!
The young ghost looked him straight in the eye and said “No sir he’s gone back in time to search you out!”
Bill threw the soldier down with such a force that he was immediately burried again.


As evening fell Merlin and Gail arrived at the castle they approached slowly and sedately. “Remember Merlin whispered you are Lady Abigail and I am your Uncle Morten and we are on our way to meet your betrothed the Earl of Gloucester. Let me do most of the talking ” As they approached the drawbridge Merlin called out in answer to the customary “Who goes there?” from the watch! Lord Morten of Friedrichburg and my neice the Lady Abigail we are en route to meet my neice’s betrothed in Gloucester.”
“Halt” came the reply .


By now Annette’s Father was enjoying his meal, wine and looking forward to taking one or maybe two of his many serving wenches to his bed! Happy in the knowledge that for the piffling price of his daughter’s life he now had the the promise of eternal life from the strange wizard ( the entity known as Bill) who had visited him a fortnight ago.
One of his servants came to his side and whispered in his ear, “My Lord, there a two people at the gate”
“Who the Devil are they?” He asked.
“Lord Morten of Friedrichburg and his neice the Lady Abigail”
“What do they look like ?”
“Rich sir very Rich”
“Well don’t keep them waiting! bring them up, hurry and bring them up”

Up in the garret Morgarna had fallen into an uneasy sleep and was dreaming.
She was clean and warm and floating around in clear warm water. Ahead of her she saw a tiny crab next to a giant shell.
“Hello little chap what are you up to?”
“Chapess if you don’t mind, and I am house hunting,”
“Really” asked Morgarna with a smile the first one she’d managed since her capture.
“I love house hunting, did I tell you we’ve just bought a great new house? Now I am not sure you’re after this one here it’s way too big for you…what’s your name? You’ll be rattling around like a marble in there! I am Morgarna “
“Well Miss bossy boots Morgarna , my name is Chrustina I don’t care what you think I am upsizing!”
“Okay Miss Chrustina shall we investigate “
While Morgarna’s body lay cold and dirty in the windy garret her mind was relaxed and warm and she had a friend of sorts. ….
Down in the main hall of the castle Merlin and Gail made their grand entrance. Gail looked across to Merlin and asked telepathically “Can you feel her Merlin, I can and she’s in pain!”
“I can and I can see where she is too, up in the garret tower. John the real John is in the dungeon. ” Merlin smiled at Gail.. “now remember I am Lord Morten , your uncle and you are Lady Abigail. “
“Time to sort things out Merlin?” Gail asked and Merlin nodded……

Hi everyone I have been stuck in the real world dealing with real world stuff, some good, some not so good. I am trying to get back into the swing of things. So maybe it’s to see what Margarna and co are up to four weeks after we last checked in with them! Here is the first of two installments this week.

Swan – Image by KL Caley.

Morgana decided the best way to approach an obviously irritated Geoff was to become a swan herself. So there she was suddenly looking rather lush, if she said so herself chasing Geoff with apparent grace and speed!
“Hi Geoff where’s the fire “
“Morgana is that you …. Good grief your a real conundrum” Geoff grumbled…”At least I am not an old curmugeon like you” Morgarna replied!
“Not now Morgarna , it’s not a good time!”
“But I am here to help Geoff what’s going on?”
Geoff motioned behind them , Morgana turned her now long and slender neck to see what Geoff was so worked up about. Immediately she could see the problem as they were swimming into a normal landscape ahead of them , behind them the horizon was catching them up like a huge blackhole .. everything a few feet behind them was being swallowed up leaving behind nothing but blackness…
“Shit Geoff this is serious, when did it all start?”
“You think Morgarna, really? Well let me see…. Two hours so far, two hours of break neck speed and damage …..”
“Where are you family Geoff?”
“Well Dog took them off in another direction but the void follows whichever direction you head in so I’ve lost them for now.”


“Okay I get the picture and I have a pretty good idea what’s happening and who’s causing it! “
“Well please Morgarna stop looking so smug and do something, I am exhausted ” Geoff hissed.
Reaching into her immaculate black feathers…well what other colour would she be? She pulled out her bag hooked it around her neck then deftly with her beak she pulled out along black tube .
She aimed it at the fast approaching event horizon.
“Geoff” she said with her mouthful…”when I say, Now, hit the red button on the bottom of the tube.”
” Why me …you do it” moaned Geoff.
” Because my bloody beak is holding the blood machine!. Stop arguing and help me or that’s it no more “
“No more what?” Geoff hissed.
“Nothing, no more nothing…. NOW Geoff NOW”
Geoff managed to hit the button just in time, the blackness stopped short of swallowing them up though Geoff did lose a couple of tail feathers.

________________________

Everything stopped except for Geoff who was furious about his rather ruffled and lost tail feathers.
“Ok Geoff , stop now I will sort that asap! Right now we need to sort out what’s happening…this time lapse event horizon holder won’t hold indefinitely! ..”
Geoff begrudgingly shuffled out of the water and onto the bank followed by Morgarna. Who as soon as she was on dry land went back to her normal form. She’d learned centuries ago if you want dry clothes step out of the water before you change form.
“Oh” said Geoff , ” why have you changed back I’d of thought you’d of kept the superior swan form”
“Morgarna took a sharp intake of breath and replied. “I find it easier to walk than waddle, now get a move on and follow me!

Meeting – Image by KL Caley.

Morgarna and Geoff walked into the wooded area to their left and followed the path for about half an hour. This led them to a clearing with fallen trees made into a round seating area. At the head of the seating area was a grand chair.
“This looks like where we should be ” Morgana announced , Geoff was still muttering to himself about his tail feathers.
Morgarna lit a cigarette and sat in the only chair….”What are you doing” asked Geoff incredulously. “What makes you think you can sit at the head of the circle.”
Taking a long puff on her cigarette she blew smoke right into Geoff’s face. “Me Geoffrey baby, I shall be doing all the hard work to sort this out so the least I should get is the big chair.’


People and animals started to arrive each wearing a number denoting which dimension they were from. Geoff quickly took a seat to Morgarna’s right and watched as everyone else arrived and squabbled for places to sit. .
Eventually all the places were taken , greetings made and a hush hung over the clearing.

This was suddenly shattered by loud voices approaching one definitely Italian.
The men in black and their bound hostage arrived and the verbal Italian was thrown into the centre of the ring? He looked straight at Morgarna who was talking to a white swan with a very mismatched bunch of tail feathers.
“Bella Morgarna” Leonardo said with a flourishing bow.
“Don’t you Bella me , Leo you have unleashed untold problems in so many worlds and you stand there grinning at me! ” The crowd was getting restless and at the sight of the author of their distress they were getting ugly!

Morgarna lit another cigarette… “What do you think you are doing playing fast and loose with space, time and dimensions? It’s just not on”
Leonardo was silent now, he was actually shocked at Morgarna’s reaction… He’d never seen her look so fierce or scary…. Boy she was beautiful.


Standing up Morgarna held up a long list of the problems that had been caused by Leonardo’s meddling. She read the list out, wars, famine, plaque , earthquakes, tusnarmi, ect culminating in the horizon suddenly becoming an event horizon and swallowing whole dimensions!
As she finished she looked him in the eyes and said…. “Just what have you got to say for yourself? “
Leonardo went down on his knees and said… “Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. Morgarna I really didn’t mean to cause so much trouble….”
He went to continue, but Morgana lifted her hand and silenced him.

“This is going to take an awful lot of sorting out. What have you got to say for yourself?”
Leonardo looked at Morgarna, he could see the only way forward was to tell the truth. ” It was a computer program that went wrong”
“What were you doing with a computer in the fourteenth century?? You have no right to have one….hang on I know exactly where you got it from….and we helped you then….this is how you show gratitude? It’s going to take weeks to sort this out. Have you got the program I need to sort the event horizon out before all of the dimensions are swallowed up! “


Morgarna sent a copy of the program through to Merlin and he immediately set to work reversing what he could in the many dimensions that exist.
To Geoff’s relief the horizon began to receed and things were restored to normal…he was delighted to hear dog and see his wife and children making their way towards him wings wide open!
As soon as Morgarna saw Geoff and family reunited she took a bound and gagged Leonardo back to the fourteenth century… where he was strip searched and was given a strict warning by Morgarna to cause no more trouble.
As Morgarna went to leave Leonardo called after her, “Bella Morgarna, please, just one more strip search before you leave”
Morgarna, a rye smile on her face, pinged her rubber gloves…but left.
She couldn’t ignore the anomaly.
As she jumped again she heard Geoff hissing “what about my tail feathers”


With Geoff’s words ringing in her ears Morgarna landed in a quiet street out side of a cottage with a red door.

K.L.Caley’s #writephoto: Chapel.

Here I am again only just in time ….I think Merlin and Morgarna have been using my time up ! Anyhow this week , only a fortnight late! Some things get tidied up!

For visually challenged writersthe image shows a tiny chapel. Beside the chapel are dilapidated stone walls. A clue to its history/location perhaps.

Chapel – Image by KL Caley

Merlin looked Morgana in the eye and said “okay we need to decide now what type of amphibian we need to be, right now Hun times up! ” Morgan took a deep breath and replied “turtles I think that way at least we can defend ourselves.” Merlin nodded and waved a hand, immediately they disappeared leaving two terrapins in there place! “You always have to have the last bloody word don’t you” Morgarna moaned.
The two terrapins edged their way towards the giant bubble.


Once inside there was so much going on so many conversations that Merlin and Morgarna had to blot most of the chatter out leaving only the important conversation going.
Mixing in with all the aquatic creatures Merlin and Morgarna found they could easily scan the noise and eventually they picked up Mr Hippo Campus and Thomas and James.
” Is this planet really worth the bother” James was asking , “to be honest I believe Earth is on its last legs I personally think we should look elsewhere.


Morgarna was not a happy bunny because she had an amerous octopus all over her, she was not best pleasd! “Get off me you arshole I am just not interested! Merlin will you do something NOW! ” Merlin laughed and threw a curling spell over the octopus who immediately turned into a ball. …”At last” Morgarna said “finally Merlin you actually did what I asked ” .
At that point they heard Mr Hippo Campus cleared his throat. ” Your right I agree not only is the planet failing but the inhabitants are too stupid and selfish to be of any use to us…. I agree let’s move on “
“I shall nip back and collect Esther where shall we head out next”.. Well I think we can stay here for a while before we move on. “


Outside the aquatic bubble Morgarna looked across at Merlin and asked “Do you reckon we can trust them Merls they are a tad shifty “
“I think we can Hun and we should be able to pick up the house now and we’ll be living there so we can keep an eye on their portal ….I believe we can stop any invasion they might try before they start it? “
“Right” announced Morgarna taking on her human form, come on Merls, change back and let’s get gone I need a drink and a cigarette right now!”
Merlin did not change back immediately instead he scuttled across towards Morgarna and bit her ankle.
“Hey what was that for?” asked Morgarna indignantly, hopping around in a circle holding her ankle to stem the blood.
“Oh! Just payback for that nasty punch in my privates ….for no reason at all” replied Merlin changing back into his rather dashing self .


The two of them went back down the ladder and as soon as they were out of sight of the bubble Merlin got out his time and space mobile and called the anomaly up…. They both jumped.
Back at the lab Morgarna made straight for the bathroom, cigarette in one hand Bacardi and coke in the other!
While she was in the bath Merlin got on to the estate agent . “No I am telling you Mr Hippo Campus has pulled out…..no I know for a fact he’s no longer interested …”
Luxuriating in the bath Morgarna heard Merlin’s raised voice and the irritating estate agent’s voice on speaker phone, she waived her hand nonchalantly”
In the estate agent’s office his computer pinged an email alert, something made him read the email.
” Hang on Sir an email has just come in from Mr Hippo Campus, …and yes he is withdrawing his offer ….yes indeed and that makes the path clear for you to go ahead with your offer. You did say you are a cash buyer didn’t you have a chain.”
“Excellent ” replied Merlin ” How fortunate that the email arrived while we were on the phone…. ” He looked knowingly towards the bathroom were Morgarna was humming very loudly.


Two months later and with a lot of help from Morgarna, and a vast amount of blind eyeing from Merlin.
Morgana and Merlin moved in to the house, they kept the lab and after a few alterations they let it out at a nominal rent so as not to arouse any suspicions locally.
They had builders renovate and decorate the inside and they had the exterior of the building lovingly restored. The locals were amazing at the speed the builders worked and the care and attention to detail they made . In fact even the builders were amazed at how fast they worked and how smoothly things went…..
Morgarna had aching wrists from waiving her hands and tired eyes from winking…
Merlin decided to let her be in charge it was actually quite convenient.

Restoration – Image by KL Caley.


Gail was still in residence and delighted to have company, even though Esther had turned out to be an alien spy she had been kind to her. After Thomas and James returned to collect Esther, Gail had felt very lonely after they had jumped through their portal.
So she was delighted and so excited about them moving in not to mention that they were time traveling scoucerers !
Gail loved all the beautiful changes being made to the house the modern kitchen, bathrooms, the electronic goods especially the TVs and computers she also loved all of Merlin’s lab equipment the like of which she had not even dreamt of.


Merlin had been busy working on a device for Gail so that she could leave the house and garden. It was finally finished.
“Gail, Morgarna who fancies a day out”
The two women appeared at the door of the lab…” Is it ready? ” Gail asked eyes wide… “Do you mean I can come too?”
” I bloody hope so gal he’s been faffing around with that bracelet long enough” laughed Morgarna.
Merlin smiled and held out the bracelet to Gail. “Here” he said, ” Once on it will not come off it held on by a spacial magnetic force. There’s a panic button on the side that will alert us if you need help of any sort and the second button is so you can hear and speak to us. ” Ending with a flourish Merlin threw the bracelet in the air and it landed neatly around Gail’s wrist.


They’d had a great afternoon they’d bought Gail some clothes and she’d been so happy to be out and about the look on her face was reward enough to Merlin and Morgarna.
On their way back to the car the Anomaly appeared , “What the F**k ” Morgarna growled at Merlin.
“Sorry, Hun ” he said sheepishly as he handed her, her bag and she jumped.


As she landed on the other side she realised she was not alone Gail was standing right by her side and she was so excited that she was actually buzzing! “What on earth”…thought Morgarna.
Once Gail had calmed down Morgarna read her the riot act ….Gail looked so downcast that, unusually for Morgarna she relented. “Okay your here now so as long as you stick with me and do as you are told we’ll be okay.
Morgarna lit and cigarette and looked across the field to see tiny chapel. Beside the chapel some dilapidated stone walls. “Right” she said to Gail, that’s our destination, are you up for an adventure?

You know that feeling when you are buying that house of your dreams it’s all going to plan then you discover. A. You have Squatters and B. You’ve been Gazuprd! Yes! #Gazumped by Aliens!.com Merlin and Morgarna are not best pleased!

.

“Well” said Gail, “that has never happened before, any idea what it was?” Morgarna and Merlin nodded, “It was a portal and by the look of it a time and space one.” Morgarna said and Merlin finished by adding “And by its structure I’d say it was alien.” Lady Esther was looking very confused by all this Gail though was almost bouncing off of her chair , ” This is so cool like that new TV show Dr Who. It sort of simple Esther, it’s like you have some sort of machine that allows you to travel through time and space and possibly the Universe! Ohh! Woow this is so fab!”
Merlin was a tad taken aback by this off the cuff answer but yes indeed basically Gail was correct. Morgarna could read his mind and smiling she spoke to him telepathically, “yes Merls she has the measure of the situation! “



The next morning found them sipping coffee and Morgarna was already on her third cigarette. They had all the relevant literature and bank details spread across the table plus Merlin’s research on portals! Merlin was on the phone to the Estate Angent, “Sorry Mr Black who did you say the other interested party was, …….. Mr Hippo Campus… really? are you sure? Oh! Right you’ve never met him ! …….. Yes I get that , yes that is our final offer. ” Putting his mobile on the worktop he turned to Morgarna, “Did you get any of that, Mr Hippo Campus…” Morgarna was nodding as she blew smoke rings in his direction.” Mr Sea Horse ” Morgarna smiled as she stubbed out her cigarette. “Did you find anything out about the portal you were up half the night ” Merlin eyes lit up as he replied ” I did babes and I have a clear line to exactly where it originates from and it not here on earth, it is on the other side of the galaxy! and you and I are going there to meet Mr Campus!”
“Can we use the Anomaly or will we have to chance their portal, are you serious about coming with me? You normally leave all the hard work to me!”
“Morgs, babe really! I am hurt! Anyway I have made a few tweaks to the Anomaly and I have it set for the out and inward journies. Honestly I am in this with you …..really. “
Morgarna choked on her coffee!


Gail was dancing around the garden singing “Then I saw her face, now I’m a believer, not a trace of doubt in my mind, I’m in love oooooo! I a believer”
Esther was watching her from an upstairs window, ” yes the girl is dancing on the garden no idea of the plan, we have her fooled, not quite so sure about Morgarna or Merlin though they are a different kettle of fish if you’ll forgive the pun! But I think the little show the three of us put on the other night definitely helped” As she finished Esther touched her ear and smiled. She had no idea that Morgarna and Merlin were outside the bedroom and heard every word!


Merlin and Morgarna flashed eyes at each other and decided not to share their travel plans with Esther or Gail, Gail mainly for her protection. So they had a cup of tea , laced with whiskey in Morgarna’s case. The discussed Tom and James and Esther displayed what looked like genuine shock at the idea that James and Tom were aliens! Gail though had no such surprise, “I never took to them , cold fish no feelings , dead eyes and just so …..odd really can’t explain it …. they’re like things that are so unlike us” she ended, touching Esther’s hand , who flinched ever so slightly.


Later after they had settled the ladies and Merlin had set up a ‘portal block’ in and around the house so that Esther and Gail could get a good night’s sleep and not be surprised by Tom or James returning and causing more trouble, they walked back to the Lab. “Merls who do you think has gazumped us and do you think they are connected to Tom and James ?” Merlin Nodded “I do indeed Hun and what’s more I reckon they are aliens!”
Back at the lab Morgarna opened her laptop to look up the estate agent number, I ring these guys first thing tomorrow shall we up the offer I really want that house now it’s perfect.”
Merlin agreed, he was busy checking up on portal designs of the universe. He was just piecing things together when a screach from Morgarna made him shoot across to the kitchen.
“Look Merls , it’s Doctor Who back in Gail’s day early 60s,” there on her screen in black and white was William Hartnell in a funny hat ! Merlin let out a huge breath, “for goodness sake Morgs I thought you were being attacked, don’t do that! ” “Really babes, you care….” Her voice trailed off and she got of her stool and walked across to the aquarium. “Merlin , look she said the Seahorse, ……..he’s gone.

Merlin and Morgarna walked to the park and as they neared the lake the Anomaly appeared, there was no one around so they jumped.


Splash! Morgarna landed on a bed of wet leaves, “Oh! Shit, Ribbit , this has got to be a joke…Merlin ! ” She said looking to her left, “Ribbit, yup I here too, Ribbit!”
“What the F##k Merlin we are frogs , you didn’t tell me that! You…..Ribbit”
Merlin silenced her with a wave of his froggy hand and replied.” Babes what would you of said if I had told you? As to why Frogs well everything on this planet is amphibious? Ribbit”
“I’ll give you Ribbit” thought Morgarna.

It’s a saucy episode for Morgarna and the nuns I hope no one is offended? This is Part of K.L. Caley’s #writephoto Plane!

******

Silently Morgarna turned and slipped back along the path to the Priory. As she left the woods and headed up the lawns towards the priory, she turned and made sure she was not been followed, and turning back toward the priory she scanned the windows to ensure no one was watching her.
She used Mother Superior’s keys to let herself in by a door half way along the building, she headed up the corridor towards Mother Agnes’s room.
Using Agnes’s keys again she let herself into the Mother Superior’s room.
Raising a hand she said ‘okay you can just listen no need for you to speak.” Lighting a cigarette and getting her flask of Bacardi and Coke out of her bag she offered Mother Agnes a drink. The nun shook her head but smiled an enquiring smile at this strange and wild woman!
Taking a drag of her cigarette Morgarna sat opposite Mother and related what she had seen. ” Now tell me sister are there male Carthusian brothers near here?”
Mother Agnes nodded her head,
” Do they want to join you here?”
Another nod from Mother Agnes.
“Okay I take it you are not in favour of this “
Agnes shook her head vehemently.
” Why” asked Morgarna handing Agnes parchment and quill. Sitting down Morgarna finished her cigarette and sipped her Bacardi while Mother Agnes wrote.
Agnes handed Morgarna her reply which Morgarna read.
The brothers are insisting that we vacate this Priory so they can move in, they say being men they take preference over us. It’s not fair Morgarna, we have been here fifty years since I was a young novice. The brothers were here before but they left to join a larger monrastery. Now some of them wish to return. ‘
Morgarna finished reading and put the parchment back on the desk.
“Right’ she said one of the Monks is putting an hallucinagenic powder into your food v
ia the mushrooms I saw a monk do this with my own eyes this evening. Morgarna didn’t need Agnes to write a reply it was actually written all over her face. “Now I have a plan said Morgarna, all I need you to do is not eat the vegetable stew the kitchen nuns have prepared! ” Mother Agnes nodded.


Morgarna joined the other nuns for the evening meal. It was delicious, and Morgarna had two helpings much to the other nuns horror, they were only allowed one helping but Morgarna was a guest after all.
After the meal was cleared away and the Nuns went to the chapel to recite Compline.
The powder was beginning to weave it’s magic the nuns were feeling the effects, there was a lot of giggling and throwing off of robes… The powder had quite an orgasmic effect on everyone.

——————

Morgarna was rather enjoying herself too, when she noticed a few monks dressed in the same Carthusian robes as the monk in the clearing entering the chapel.
Reluctantly she waved a hand across her forehead and instantly she was back to normal …” Humm” she muttered, I was enjoying that” taking a deep breath she headed for the chapel.


As she walked down the stone hallway towards the chapel she heard a lot of excited sounds… opening the door Morgarna was surprised by the scene that met her. It was a full blown orgy!
Morgarna toyed with the idea of whipping out her special mobile phone and taking some photos… Her better side won and she decided against it!
As she stepped over the entwined bodies some of the monks reached out to touch her….ignoring her pact with Merlin , ‘No magic unless unavailable’, she muttered a few incantations and all the monks penis’s shrunk and then disappeared. This caused so much consideration among the monks that the orgy came to an abrupt end.
Morgarna ignoring the loud protestations from the Monks, waved a hand over all the nuns , immediately they all put on their habits and filed out of the chapel and went to their cells and slept the sleep of the innocent.


Morgarna told the red faced monks to re-robe and follow her to Mother Superior’s room. Mother Agnes was rather surprised but not totally shocked. The monks revield that they were there without the knowledge of their Abbot who had no intention of returning to the priory. These monks were simply indulging their carnal instincts completely of their own volition and were drugging the nuns to get their own way.
Morgarna asked mother Agnes what she wanted to do.


So it was that just after midnight, eight redface and naked monks were banging on the Monastery door. Around their necks were plaques that said that they had been drugging the nuns at the priory and having their wicked way with them !


That afternoon Mother Agnes sent for Morgarna, she had received a message from the Abbot of the Carthusian Monastery. Saying thank you for returning his monks who had mysteriously returned as castrato something that was much needed in their choir.

Mother Agnes asked Morgarna what she had been up to? Morgarna winked and said “Mother I couldn’t possibly say! But they will be firing blanks and singing high for the rest of their lives! “
The nuns were all up early the next day though most of them were complaining of very odd dreams.


Before Morgarna left she popped a morning after pill in all the nuns porridge! As she strolled around the garden the Anomaly arrived and she jumped.

Landing on a colourful flower bed under a black and white aeroplane statue Morgana spotted Merlin waiting for her in the BMW. ‘You’ve got a lot of crawling to do you shit if you don’t want to end up like those monks !”

Paling, Merlin replied “I have a night for you booked at the Ritz ” “No way” Morgarna replied, you can take me to Glastonbury! “

K.L.Caley’s #writephoto. Mushrooms.

Mushrooms – Image by KL Caley

For visually challenged writersthe image shows a mass of brown mushrooms all growing on top of one another.

Did Merlin go too far last week? Will Morgarna ever forgive him?

Mushrooms.

“What the hell is going on?” Morgarna was struggling with reality. What had happened to this place where was the ensuite and the carpet! Hang on there’s a pot under the bed needs must …
Morgarna was wondering where Merlin was and why everything of comfort was gone from the room when the sound of a key turning in the door made her jump off the pot and pull her knickers up!
“Ah! my dear , Mother Superior will see you now” a young fresh faced girl dressed as a nun said smiling at her.
Morgarna rubbed her eyes and said “what the fuck…who the hell are you?”
The novice blushed visibly and replied ” well my dear you can’t deny your Anglo Saxon roots after that speech!”
“No I am not, but sister what’s going on? Where is Merlin ? “
Again the nun looked embarrassed “Merlin…there is no Merlin here. We are in a priory. No men allowed!”
“Oh!” said Morgarna” feeling smug and also annoyed at being hyjacked. “Not for much longer you’ll soon have some of your Carthusian brothers join you! “
The young woman looked fit to faint as she took in what Morgarna had just said!


The two women left the room and went down several flights of stairs and along a narrow stone passage past a huge kitchen where a number of nuns were silently busy, past a dinning room, empty, and a beautiful chapel full of flowers and stain glass windows . Everywhere was silence, so loud l could be cut it with a knife. Eventually they came to a huge wooden door the novice stood forward and in a very quiet voice she said, do not speak unless you are spoken to. Morgarna opened her mouth to reply but the young woman put her fingers on her lips and her eyes beceahed Morgarna to comply…… Morgarna did.


The inside of the room was very dark even though it was mid morning the only light to work by was candle. There was a large desk covered in papers and sat behind it was a tiny lady of advanced years. She had a kindly face and she looked every inch the Mother Superior.
The novice bobbed her knee, Mother Superior smiled and motioned that she should leave.
Once the door was closed the older woman motioned to Morgarna to take a seat. She offered Morgarna a plate of fruit, cheese and bread and a glass of golden mead , then surprised Morgarna by saying. “Eat my dear it’s getting late in the morning and I need you to think straight.We are Carthusian nuns so please listen carefully as I do not wish to repeat myself as I have taken a vow of silence”
Smiling and sipping the mead Morgarna felt at home, she also ate heartily as she felt quite hungry. When Morgana finished eating she dug out her cigarettes and lighter, as she lit one she noticed a file in her bag. Obviously it was going to be relevant. As she pulled it out she spotted ‘Hi Babes’ written on the front. Taking a drag on her cigarette , much to the silent constanation of Mother Superior, Morgarna muttered ” Don’t you Hi Babes me you shit” then looking across at the nun she winked and said, “Sorry Mother but he can be a real creep, oh! And these” she said raising her cigarette , “these will be more common place soon, maybe not tailor made like mine but definitely around! “
Mother Superior smiled and nodded while Morgarna read the file.
“Morges, Hun I know I was a tad sneaky.. Okay I was a total shit posting you back to the middle ages but Mother Agnes is a lovely lady and she has helped me out more than once.
She got in touch with me because some of the ladies of the order are acting very un nun like, high jinks , skinny dipping and generally terrorising the locals! Yup Morgs you’ll fit in perfectly!
This usually occurs after the evening meal…could you be a sweetheart and look into it please? ” The file was signed with a flourish.
Looking up at Mother Superior Morgarna smiled, “Okay Mother I am here now and very happy to help so if you don’t mind me pottering about I will see what I can gleam ” Ending on a smile she lent across the desk and picked up Sister Agnes’s keys from the desk, the nun smiled her concent. Morgarna drained her meade lit another cigarette and left Sister Agnes wondering what type of witch Merlin had sent her!


Morgarna walked along the corridor, her Doc Martin’s clonking on the stone floor. Using the keys she checked out every, storeroom and cupboard, cell, refrectory and chapel, nothing was out of place or out of the norm. She checked every herb, vegetable and fruit, there was nothing unusual or dangerous. She tried the water from the well, yuk! It was disgustingly pure and fresh. Finally she checked the wine and mead barrels in the celler. Actually she checked each barrel twice!


It was now early evening and Morgarna was sitting in the gardens enjoying the quiet wondering exactly what had she missed because so far there was nothing at all that could send anyone off the straight and narrow.
Just the she spotted one of the kitchen nuns heading off into the woods, an empty basket in hand. On a whim she decided to follow her.
The nun took a winding path to a clearing, a musty place full of decaying leaves and fungi. The nun stooped down and filled her basket from a mass of brown mushrooms all growing on top of one another.

Mushrooms – Image by KL Caley

Instinctively Morgarna hid behind a tree trunk and watched as a man dressed in monk’s robes emerged from the other side of the clearing he spoke to the nun who, startled dropped her basket of mushrooms. As the Monk help the nun gather up the mushrooms Morgarna saw him sprinkle some powder over the fungi. At once Morgarna knew what was going on……

Last week I was not feeling too good, Covid and Ruby issues took presidence. So this wee we have a two for one!

Bucket and Priory.

Morgarna’s eyes widened as she looked into the beautiful eyes, set in a handsome face, framed by dark curly hair tied back in a long pony tail and a perfectly groomed beard. Swallowing hard, her heart skipped a beat. “Leonardo, what are you doing here”
Stepping forward and taking her hand he answered in his lyrical Italian accent. “Morgarna, my dear I am so glad to see you! We need your help “
“We?” Morgarna raised an eyebrow”
“Yes bellissima, Mona and some students are with me, come, come on in and see “
Morgarna allowed herself to be led into the room.


The room was busy, there were blue screens everywhere with people tapping away on their keyboards. Morgarna was taking it all in when a familiar face came towards her carrying a tray ladened with wine grapes and cheese.
“Mona, it’s great to see you, you look amazing the 21st century suits you! “
“Honestly Morgana you say that in whichever century we meet! Here sit and have something to eat and drink” gently setting the tray down on a empty work surface the young woman dressed in jeans and hoody looked trim and fit, her eyes sparkling like her huge smile.


“So you see said Leonardo, we have got ourselves here with my time machine but we just can’t get back. We’ve been stuck here a few months now and I had been at wits end trying to contact you and Merlin for help! So as soon as I found your anomaly I decided to interfere with it to get your attention”
“And hey presto, after a few wet landings and rogue jumps here you are Morgs” interrupted Mona, “sorry Leo but as ever you are going all round the villa just to say we are lost”
Leonardo opened his mouth to speak but Mona waved her hand at him and winked….he closed his perfect mouth.
“Did we not give you one of Merlin’s *C.O.T.A S. mobile number ? I am sure we did ” Morgarna asked looking bemused.
Pouring more wine Mona added ” You did Morgs and you gave us a handset too, about four centuries ago but clever clogs here decided mobiles were the work of ‘the diavolo’ and he destroyed it one night after we’d had a row and he got drunk! Typical eh? “
Morgarna smiled she completely understood.
“Well we’re in contact now so we can sort all this out.


“Yes babes it’s Leo and Mona and a bunch of his students. Yup they are stuck here, their time machine is kaput! Yup we need you over her pronto and can you bring a C.O.T.A.S. Mobile please…… I will explain later. What’s that noise….where are you…what? say again, Oh! you big baby , yes send a photo then get your arse here! ” Morgarna hung up and lit a cigarette, “he on his way and no comment on my smoking will change me so save your breath”
Ping a photo arrived on her C.O.T.A.S “Hey everyone she laughed look at this she said casting Merlin’s photo to all the screens in the room.

Bucket – Image by KL Caley.

An hour later Merlin arrived with alsorts of tools and magic ware! Mona, Morgana and the students had been busy preparing a meal and after Leonardo and Merlin had had a catch up they all sat down to a banquet! ” I’d of got a take in but the Ladies insisted on cooking” Leonardo announced, Merlin smiled “There’s no point in arguing with them mate they usually get their own way.Take it from one who knows.”
The next several hours were spent tinkering with machine, with technology and magic in even shares. Eventually after several attempts and a couple of short jumps via the anomaly back to when the time machine started playing up….at one point there were four Merlins and four Leonardos all arguing about what to do next… finally, and luckily before any blood was spilt the machine was restored to perfect working order.


The next day after the room had been cleared and striped of everything electronic and magic and the last 16th century students had had their memories of the 21st century erased and been sent back through the Anomaly and found themselves back at their eazels wondering where their master was. Merlin and Morgarna sat outside the well house in the afternoon sun with Leonardo and Mona. Merlin explained how the C.O.T.A.S. worked and this time Leonardo was very happy to learn, though useful as he could see it was he still felt vaguely it was partly the work of the Diavelo … But he agreed not to destroy it again. Merlin put in his and Morgarna’s numbers for emergencies and social calls.
Eventually after they had packed all of Equipment into Merlin’s Beema and said their goodbyes Leonardo and Mona set off home in their machine, Leonardo had the
Vitruvian Man to finish before people started asking awkward questions. After a slight werring and a flash they were gone.


“Well babes” Merlin said, “how do you fancy a night a posh hotel I know one not far from here. “
Morgarna looked at him suspiciously “Can I trust you ” she asked looking him in the eye….
“Trust me babes? Have I ever let you down “
Morgarna lit a cigarette and muttered …”yes legions of times” as she got in the car letting Merlin drive…she did fancy a little luxury.


They were expected when they arrived at The Priory, Merlin had rung ahead and booked a suite.

Priory – Image by KL Caley

Morgarna was delighted with the view as they drove up the drive to be greeted by a beautiful old yellow stone priory with ivy growing up the sides. Absolutely charming she thought.
After a long soak and change of clothes they both enjoyed a sumptuous meal and plenty of wine, then they sat in the rose garden and smoked the last two of Sir Percival’s cigars.
Morgarna actually fell asleep and Merlin carried her upstairs and to the room. Which is why she didn’t see the anomaly above the bed or know that Merlin posted her through it!
She landed comfortablely on a small bed there was nothing of luxury in the room , no Egyptian cotton sheets, mini bar, no TV. no ensuite, phone or room service.

————————–
Meanwhile on the other side of the anomaly Merlin knew he would not be Mr Popular but that did not stop him helping himself to a brandy and turning on a movie. …….

*C.O.T.A.S : Contact Over Time And Space

K.C. Caley’s #writephoto. Well.

For visually challenged writersthe image shows a path amongst some foliage leading to a pyramid-shaped building.

Well – Image by KL Caley

After last week’s double jump, the second unplanned and to an alternative reality and a run in with the talking Swans Morgarna is back to earth with a bang. There is trouble with the Anomaly and she and Merlin must sort that out. After the quickest of turnrounds Morgarna is off again. Well it doesn’t take long for our girl Morgs to be in the thick of danger again!


The silence of the lab was shattered by a loud thud as Morgana landed on the floor a stream of angry expletives pouring from her deceivingly innocent looking mouth!
“Who , what when?” A startled Merlin asked… looking around from the experiment he was conducting. Morgarna filled him in on her jump before last not bringing her home but into an alternative reality where all creatures spoke and humans didn’t and were definitely not in charge. Merlin was quite interested until she mentioned a swan named Geoff with very definite opinions on her habbits. “No, Morgarna I’m not swallowing that you’re taking the Mick?”
“I’m not” Morgana replied “I was bloody there you weren’t “
Merlin could see she was not in the best of moods so backed off and poured her a Bacardi and Coke and handed it to her as she lit a cigarette. “I’ll run you a bath Morgs you wiff a tad then I will prepare a meal…” Morgarna interrupted him mid sentence “You’d smell if you’d been through what I have. Soaked and cold! … I’ll run my own bath and let’s have Mexican tonight I need warming up! “
Snatching her drink out of Merlin’s hand she headed off to the bathroom leaving a trail of smoke rings behind her!


The next morning over breakfast Merlin and Morgarna discussed the fact that the anomaly had gone rogue a few times in a year whereas in several hundred previous years no jump had ever been off the scale?
“It makes me think, Morges that something is messing with us and for now it’s very random but we honestly don’t want it to get any worse do we?”
“Certainly not these double jumps are exhausting and that last one was really odd. Any ideas about what’s causing the rogue jumps.”
Morgarna stretched and lit a cigar
.. Merlin pulled a face and said, “where did you get that from” Morgarna winked and replied “I liberated a box from Sir Percival Devereau, he’s not going to need them in prison, is he? “
Merlin stood up and opened the window letting in some fresh air and smoke out!
Turning to face Morgana he continued, “there have been some unusual blips on the computer though I have not payed much attention to them but last night I sat up and collated them all and this is what I found! Pulling up the screen on his tablet Merlin showed Morgarna a a wooded area , look closer can you see those purple ripples, well I followed them and they are, always there on the occasions of rogue jumps right there!”.
Morgarna joined Merlin to look at the screen and sure enough there were purple ripples exactly where the rouge jumps occurred.
“Where is this place Merls?” Morgarna asked “and when are we going to investigate?”
“It’s up north Hun, but it’s not we it is just you I need to be here keeping things going. “
“Yet right of course you do and it is always me doing the donkey work!” Snapped Morgarna her cigar firmly clamped in her teeth! “
“You can take my beema” Merlin said dangling the keys in front of her.
“I’ve packed your bag for you” he added quietly.
Snatching her bag and keys Morgarna set off trailing a strange mixture of Paloma Picasso and Havanna cigar as she went. Her long black cloak and black Doc Martin’s looking fetching and aggressive at the same time.


As she drove off Merlin called after her “no smoking in the car” regretting the words the second they left his mouth.
Morgarna’s eyes flashed and she smiled as she shouted, “Oops! Sorry as she stubbed her cigar out on the pristine dashboard, waving through the sun roof she sped off.
“Oh! ouch” winched Merlin, “I’d would have been better off saying nothing!” He turned on his heels and went back into the lab to take a pill …. He had a migraine coming on!

Morgarna sped along windows open Sam Ryder blaring out breaking every speed camera as she passed!


It was about 5pm when the special satnav Merlin had designed for her, brought her to a quiet carpark in the middle of nowhere. Getting out of the car Morgarna lit a cigarette and got her stuff together.

Well – Image by KL Caley.

After half an hour’s walk through a little wood she found a path amongst some foliage leading to a pyramid-shaped building.
A stone building with a pyramid type roof that had a strange gleam to it. Quietly she approached the doorway and entered the building, she stubbed her cigarette out just before entering. Once inside it became clear that this was a covered well.
As her eyes ajusted to the dark she heard a door behind her open. The warm air and hum of computers and mechinary grew loud . Morgarna swung round to come face to face with a tall dark figure . “At last, one of you came…..”
