Junior Earplug Adventures: We Stand Accused (Part 28)

Well, actually, it wasn’t really all that awful at all. It wasn’t really all that awful at all because Magnuss was on a mission. And when Magnuss Earplug is on a mission, things are never completely awful…

This was because Magnuss knew exactly where he was going, and what he was going to do when he got there. There, of course, was the unpretentious domicile of the leader of the people of Scroton – Nigel….

…whose wife, Gloria, responded to the hammering upon the door…

“Do you mind!” She snapped. “We’re the King and Queen of Scroton: we don’t take kindly to people hammering upon our door. Now go away, before I have you cauterised!”

Then her eyes focused and she realized that she was looking at a bunch of aliens from another world.

“Flip!” She added. She then called her husband, who was out the back flushing away the night’s effluent from the temporary septic tank in the garden shed.

“Have you come to reconnect our sewer pipe?” Nigel asked as his eyes began to adjust to the brightness of the day.

Then, like Gloria before him, realization triumphed. But unlike his wife, Nigel saw only one figure…

It seemed vaguely familiar, so he stepped outside for a better look…

…which made Magnuss feel a little bashful.

“You might know me better like this.” Magnuss said to the confused-looking Scrotonite…

“Magnuss!” Nigel yelled only semi-coherently with joy…

He then embraced the earplug who had given his world a name. And, the watchers about them forgotten, they ‘caught up’ with each other at length. Only Fang interrupted them…

…as he took the opportunity to sniff the royal backside, like any half-way decent plugmutt would.

“So what brings you back to the palace?” Nigel inquired eventually.

“Well…” Magnuss began nervously.

To be continued.
