Earplug Adventures: The Age of Stone (part 20)


Any further conversation was thwarted when a final decline…

…preceded their entry into (what Rudi described as) an arboretum…

It was tough going, and Rudi was almost tempted to pull his Swiss Army machete from his utility belt…

“Hey, man,” Valentine said whilst pushing his way through thick fronds of vegetation, “did they let the gardener go or something?”

But, just as suddenly as the arboretum had begun, it ended and they found themselves standing on an area that was clearly unnatural. Equally suddenly, the group felt decidedly ill-at-ease…

“Where to now?” Susan inquired of no one in particular…

Then she enjoyed a moment of inspiration and duly dissolved into her multitude of parts – some of which soon discovered a building with a long, low window…

Exploring it further, Valentine and Susan’s primary sub-part discovered a steam vent…

…into which they peered minutely…

It was whilst they considered the unlikely usage of steam-powered energy in the Galactic Court that Susan’s tertiary sub-part spotted something huge and scary.

“Aargh,” she screamed, “it’s huge and scary!”
