The AdventurCats™: The Prohibition Error
Previously on Dash Kitten Blog—
“Seville GET DOWN, they are shooting all over the place!” Silver jammed Seville under the nearest car as glass rained around them……..
Then, into the ringing silence that followed the fierce gun fire, a familiar voice spoke. She was none too happy!
YOU. TWO. ARE. TOAST!
The boys turned in shock…..
“Dum-tee-dum-dum…let me see if my message to Seville and Silver is about ready.” Savvy reaches to pop up her toaster message for the boys.
Pop! “Ah, yes, just the right shade of burned toast.”
“I think those two will get my meaning when I send this special BURNED TOAST MESSAGE through to them in 1928 Prohibition USA. Now let me put the finishing touches to my message. There! All ready to go.”
“Back into the toaster you go—one more setting…there—all done!” Savvy turns on her paws and pads off to her steampunk workshop.
“Heh…heh…heh…too bad I can’t be there to see them get my BURNED TOAST MESSAGE!”
“I have a notion about how I’m gonna be able to get Seville and Silver outta 1928 but it won’t be easy. Now where did I put that star map showing the worm hole I found?”
Meantime, in 1928, Silver and Seville receive Savvy’s lecture which arrived with her BURNED TOAST MESSAGE.
“Ok, I need you two to get outta here. Go on, hop on those motorbikes and get to a place with lots of space.
Silver shuffles his paws, then asks meekly—“Hey savvy, do you think you could bring us back some salmon nibbles and maybe a chik-hen leg or two? We haven’t had much to eat since we got here?”
“Huh! I hardly think I will have time to do any kitchen duty for you two. I have enough to do to pry you back through the space time continuum with me.”
The BURNED TOAST MESSAGE flashes several more shades of orange, red and then a bright purple and whooooosh! It’s gone leaving the two boys scurrying to get back to their motorbikes.
Talking to herself, Savvy considers her rescue plan.
“Now that I have those two sorted out, I need to make sure my newest time travel vehicle is ready for this.” Savvy reaches out to pat something under a pure white cloth.
Zip! “There, you look great without that white cover on you. Let me give your engine a couple of adjustments…” Tink-ding-tap, tap. ” There, that does it.”
“I have everything I need in the boot, so I’d best get going. That worm hole can be mighty unstable. Here we go!” KABOOM!
Shaking her head at the explosive sound of her engine and popping her ears from the sudden acceleration to turbo warp speed, Savvy sets her navigation control for a certain street in Chicago.
“I hope those two are ready ‘cuz I don’t intend to even stop to pick them up.”
“Oh, there they are”—SWOOSH—yelling at top of her voice “GET READY! SILVER! SEVILLE!!”
Both boy cats look up and are gobsmacked to see Savvy approaching them at warp speed. “Grab hold wherever you can when I pass over you!! NOW!!!”
“I have the runner board Savvy!” shouts Silver. Then Silver and Savvy hear an ear splitting scream! “EEEIIIIIIEEEEYIIIIOOOHHHH!!! ” Savvy feels a weight attach to the back bumper, looks around to learn Seville almost missed the star car! But he’s there, flapping in the wind like a flag.
“Be quiet you guys, so I can think!” Click, snick, wind—”There, we’re good to go back. Don’t let go whatever you do! I can’t come back for you once we are in that worm hole! I picked a different one for the return trip ‘cuz it will be faster so’s you don’t have to hang on for long.”
WHAMMMOOO!! A loud chilling boom sucks the breath out of all three cats. Savvy’s tail starts to twitch and not in a good way.
“Let me see if I can get this landed by my steampunk workshop without knocking you two off.” Kabump, bump, bummpity bump bump.
“OUCH! Savvy you could have left off that last bump” whines Silver. They both turn when they hear a soft mewing coming from the back of the star car. Seville is already lickity licking his paws to get the star dust off, and mewing to himself while he licks. “Heck Savvy, you could have avoided bouncing me around back there like a nip toy!”
“Well and ‘thank you’ too” says Savvy in a biting voice. “After I save you two you start whining about the trip! Harummppff.” Turning on her paws, she heads into her workshop, but hesitates so quickly it causes Silver to whump right into her backside. “Wait!…What??!!” whispers Savvy.
“I left my workshop door closed and locked—now it’s open—”
