Junior Earplug Adventures: Those Magnificent Earplugs (Part 11)


Well what that ‘something quite awful’ transpired to be, was expulsion from the prison with nothing more than a fleece and a pair of snow shoes each.

“Can’t say I’m overly impressed.” Hellfire said curtly as the guards turned their backs and departed.

Erroneous was less forgiving. He swore profusely, then complained that the snow shoe straps were digging into his ankles. But then he experienced a shift in his mental perspective…

“But hey,” he said, “who gives a monkies: we’re free. Free as a flightless bird. Come on, Hellfire: let’s get the heck out of here.”

So before long they’d left the protection of Sloshed Antlers’ back door awning, and now used their inherited talent with snow shows to trudge along the road that led towards the mountain path…

But plans went slightly awry when they discovered that there had been a recent landslide, and most of the path had fallen down the mountainside…

But with no other course available to them, the two nimble burglars used their intense house-breaking skills to clamber across the divide…

…and very soon they found themselves on an open plateau…

“I’m ever so glad we put our prison-regulation thermal vests on this morning.” Hellfire confessed. “These fleeces aren’t exactly wind-proof.”

Erroneous felt much the same way…

“Yeah, I agree. If we don’t find shelter too, the cold will seriously effect our  bladders, and we’ll have to pee in the snow.”

“The snow?” Hellfire exclaimed. “That’s unthinkable: It’s pollution of most sordid kind. Virgin snow befouled by yellow urine: the thought makes me gag.”

But the situation didn’t improve, and soon both earplugs were desperate for a tinkle…

…and before long…

nov29b-008

…Erroneous was forced to hide from any potential spy cameras behind Hellfire whilst he perpetrated the heinous act of taking a tinkle.

“Shamed.” He wailed. “I’ll happily strip bare a poor unfortunate earplug’s home; but spoiling the environment is something that, I suspect, will keep me awake at night for the rest of my life.”

But, actually, he forgot about it almost immediately, because…

dec2a-006

…night fell – so no one could see the stain that he’d left behind.

Naturally night continued for quite a lot of time…

dec2a-007

…and the snow became deeper and deeper. But as dawn slowly…er…dawned…

dec2a-008

…they both cheered up. Especially when Erroneous…

…noticed something a short distance off…
