Me: "my god! wolfman and rose, sit down pal! guys....this is a friend from america, i call him wolf man and th wolf with him is rose"
wolfman(grady): "thanks metal"
Rose: "yeah thanks metal, hi crystal :)"
crystal: "rose nice to finally meet you! :D"
this was a big surprise, i didnt expect him to be here in england on pirate day of all days. this was also another opportunity to perhaps build a army of friends to help incase the evil scar wolf had anything up his sleeve. this would require some thought though, as well as making sure that my friends werent in any danger i had to make sure that they could handle themselves incase the evil wolf had an army of his own. it made me think. "all this for crystal" i couldnt let even one of those wolves get to crystal in fear of what they would do to her but at least now i had a few people to help
watch my back.
me: "do you want something to eat?
Grady: "no i am ok thanks"
Me: "how did you and rose get here?!"
Rose: "we got here in that tardis"
i look over to the parking lot in the back of the beach to see an old fashioned police box that was blue in colour and was standing about 2 feet tall.
slightly confused i turned back to the picnic to coninue the conversation.
Me: "if that is the tardis then........where is the doctor?"
Rose: "he let us borrow it for a couple of weeks". she said smiling.
Me: "ok. So what a time for you to come to hastings eh! :D during national pirate day!"
Grady: "i know we couldn't believe it when we got here, every one in pirate hats, argghhin!!! and grrrrrin!!! and sailing in on floats, Rose was in awe at them all peg legging by!"
the picnic was going on in time and was going very smoothly.
soft iced cakes and tantalising succulent meat and crunchy biscuits being shared until we couldn't take any other bites lest we throw up. strangely Rose and Crystal really took to my aunty joy, chatting about everything and nothing until the cows came home, in-fact that is what my granddad used to say to my mum when she got home of an evening "oh look the cows come home"
XD (little joke)
several hours past and eventually it was time to take a walk down the coast, i then at this point would attempt to get
wolfman and Rose to join my ranks and army which i still needed a name for. perhaps it could be
1: protection of crystal and defeat of twats (pocadot)
2: defeat of the evil wolf from the bowels of hell (dotewftboh)
i had no clue........what about "the army of howling metalwolves"?
YEAH! that would be it, that would be the name of the army
that i would need to protect Crystal.
Me: "pal? can i ask you a question? well it is more of a request or a favour really pal!"
Grady: "sure pal, anything you need me and rose will help!" :)
Me: " right here I go. Do you know about the thing that has happened recently, the thing I posted on A&O wall?"
Grady: " yeah I know....what about it!?"
me: "well he has escaped, theevil scar wolf and 7 other evil wolves have escaped looking for me and crystal and i was just wondering......"
me: "i know this is a lot to ask you and rose......"
Grady: "Come on man, spit it out!"
Me: "would you and rose join my Crystal protection army called the army of howling metalwolves?"
the strange look on Grady's face as he looked at my own made his thoughts difficult to read, difficult to accuratly
decipher and its as if he was purposly blocking me from his mind. As to what his answer was going to be i was very unsure and very nervous and restless.
grady: "let me talk to rose about it"
he slowly walked to rose and sat down beside her and began
telling her frantically about the offer i had thrown down to them both. After much consideration the came back, a stern look on their faces. quickly their expressions changed to a massive beaming smile on each of their faces.
Grady: "after much consideration me and rose have decided to join your army to defend our dear friend crystal, call us on this ready made cell phone with a number 1 speed dial."
This was indeed a bit of good news. They would join us and Jonathan (transformer101) and us in the fight to kill off the army of deadly scar wolves who would love nothing better than to take crystal away for their evil bidding and to kill me slowly in plain sight of her crying form. I would never let this happen! For as long as I live!
Me: "thank you my good friends! You have no idea how much this means to me!"
Rose: "it is the least we could do oh majestic wolf with a heart of gold and for the wolf with a heart of crystal."
This made me feel brilliant. My wide eyed happy face was equal only to that of the size of the ocean as we moved further and further down the beach and the pirate festival, perhaps to stop for ice cream at the cafe at the end of the beach.
Aunty joy was the first one to offer the money to pay the bill when we finally got there. Such a sweet old lady. I had neopolitan ice-cream: Crystal had chocolate flavoured (despite being bad for her system and even though i warned her she wanted chocolate) my grandad had Chico as well, my nan had Chico chip and mint and my mum and brother both had toffee flavoured (yuck!!!!) and finally Grady and Rose both had strawberry flavoured which was ironic because strawberries are red like roses.
Gathered round the table at the ice cream parlour aunt joy broke out into story face and immmediatly started telling us about a special rumour or "old wifes tale" as she called it about the ruins atop the hasting cliff.
Aunty joy: "right! here we go! it was about 50 yr ago to this very day and when i was a little nipper and me mum used to take me and your grandfather up to the top of the cliff, we would look at those ruins for hours on end, staring up into each window for the slightest glimpse of movement until one day we saw something; lurking in the window, black as the night, sleek as the morning breeze, suddenly it dissapeared. we told your great grandmother or our mum and told her.
She told us about an evil ghostly figure that haunts the ruins, he has been heard as well as seen in the ruins. apparntly he was a rich king back in 1066, he was killed in the battle of hastings and now roams because of the horrific way he died; he got his head cut off by a invading axe man. he now haunts this place and relentlessly gives people heart attacks."
Rose: "We arent going there are we?!"
Grady: "we couldnt anyway, we have to get back to the tardis, thanks for the ice cream mrs hambrook, Crystal and Daniel; just call this number when you need us, we have to go, see ya :)."
grady handed me this piece of paper with a telephone number on it. it had a distinctive type of form to it.
Me: "Grady?.....thanks so much for the help and the support, it has made me feel so much better :)."
Crystal: " yeah! i am very thnakful"
Grady: "it is no problem, call if the army needs aything, bye!"
Grady and rose both entered the tardis and before we knew it had dissapeared in a flash of light. we looked at each other, excited that our army has grown by another two.
this trip to hastings really has been a very helpful visit indeed.
aunty joys story face!!!!!
