TLS ch2 (redux…)


Post Camillo’s after-gig party at Corrina’s on Sherman Canal…
Faces on porch lit by perenial christmas-tree lights & glowing
embers on cigarettes & joints
Sound of Porter’s guitar echoing across the rippling canal waters
Someone’s cooking spicy soup

Now, nearby voices in the fog…

1st VOICE: Anyone seen James?

2nd VOICE: I think he and Sarah Kiddo went up to
Tranquil Valley to see Iris…

1st VOICE: Tranquil Valley?

2nd VOICE: Yeah, It’s out past El Centro, near where
Flynn lives. There was a special about it on channel 51

1st VOICE: All I know is, that they’ve got a surprise
waiting for them when they get back

2ND VOICE: Now what?

1st VOICE: Some batty bugs have set up a hostile hive
in the tree in their front yard over on the other side by
Rachel’s walk. I mean, I’m sorry, I love bees, but this
hassle ain’t worth the honey…

Then Delgado appears out of the gloom, face lit, cheeks
hollowing as she inhales the better part of a zeppelin
shaped joint

DELGADO: So…we need the McGuffin. It’s going to take
some timely persuasion, but we need to find the lost ring…

CINCO: Jeezis, just what I need, another contest worth

DELGADO: Well, we’ve gotta have it. The key is encrypted
in the rare design on the ring. It’s actually a set of micro-heiroglyphs
depicting the primal human myth. It starts out as something
in the sea, and winds up as voices in the static.

CINCO: Like Cinderella said when she visited British Columbia:
“The game is afoot…”
