As I was My
Damnedest to Avoid Being Caught,I Hauled off and Bumped into "YOU -KNOW-WHO"
I don't know who screamed
first ( or the loudest for that matter ),but since I do know a
little GERMAN, as well as some FRENCH,It was a good thing
"THE KING" also Spoke some "GUTT" ENGLISH. Let Me Continue.....
"JUNGE! WATCH WHERE YOU'RE GOING-DUMMKOFT*!( dum-ass/stupied/idiot/etc.)
Quickly,I Spoke up....in BOTH "FRANCAIS UND
DEUSCHE.ME: "Pardon Moi,MON ROI LOUIS de DEAUX...I
am a Traveler....from Very Far Away....
Sought out Shelter...." My Head
was lowered,so as not to show My Face....."Please
Forgive Me, M'LORD For such a POOR 'NARREN HABEN*'( a fool*) such as
I, Who has Heard of Your 'GREAT KINDNESS ABOVE ALL KINGS'....." I was hoping that this compliment would
"BUTTER" HIM UP....
The King then Spoke;His
Voice a Rather LOW AND CALM, With His Arms Folded and his
Penetrating Eyes Staring at ME, some-what eating within MY SOUL,that I
ONLY TOOK A GLANCE AT THOSE BURNING COLBOLT-BLUES.
Accent is Foreign,WHERE CAME YOU? SPEAK-UP, JUNGE!"
Y'all Know I couldn't Help but Rise Up and Stare Directly
at "HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS" at THAT REMARK! Calmly, I Smiled a Rather
Wicked Smile , Then Spoke; "I'm From 'THE
And with That, I Bowed Low....like a
MAN! ( For that's what He Assumed I was,by My Manner of Dress.)
Still, THE KING STARED at Me, Rather Suspiciously. I ( Then ) Prayed that HE
Wouldn't REALLY SUSPECT THAT I WAS REALLY A "FRAU"*(*A WOMAN),That
I Quickly Folded My ARMS in THE SAME MANNER AS THE KING,
HIM-SELF, AS NOT TO BE THE WISER! And Boy was it getting
HOT INSIDE THAT PLACE, As well as pretty un-comfortable ( and scared
as HELL, TERRIFIED, THE WAY THE KING WAS LOOKING ME OVER, I MIGHT ADD
IS YOUR NAME,JUNGE?" HE DEMANDED.
Spoke Up and LIED MY BUTT OFF!
NAME,MON ROI,...IS 'LOUIS RICHE'....I am Originally from
KING CAME CLOSER, STILL LOOKING ME OVER....AND I HAD A STRANGE
PREMOTION THAT THE KING WAS STARTING TO FLIRT WITH ME! I MUST'VE
LOOKED MORE LIKE A GUY,THAN I THOUGHT! I JUST HOPE MY SPORTSS
BRA DOESN'T 'POP-OPEN', OR I'd REALLY BE UP SHIT CREEK!
STILL, IT WAS GETTING HOTTER
AND HOTTER IN THAT PLACE....ESPECIALLY,WHEN I WAS AROUND AN OVER-GROWN
"PRETTY-BOY" LIKE ROYALITY
LIKE KING LUDWIG II!
I MEAN, THIS GUY HAD
ON MORE PERFUME AND POMADE,
THAN MY OLDER SISTER
MADELINE, BACK HOME!
GOD FORBID IF HE ONLY
KNEW THAT I WASN'T REALLY A
GUY....I'd BE DEAD MEAT!
AT THAT MOMENT, WHAT COULD I
DO? I COULDN'T TELL HIM
THE TRUTH, THAT'S FOR SURE!
are from CANADA.....hmmmm? 'Quebecois',
HE PUT HIS HAND ON ONE HIP, AND THE OTHER HAND
STROKING HIS WELL COIFFED
HAIR,WITH A SOME-WHAT WICKED SMILE ON HIS FACE....
MY STOMACH BEGAN TO
CHURN, LIKE BUTTER....AND I WASN'T
EVEN HUNGRY! GOD-FORBID....GOD-FORBID!
I've ALWAYS WANTED TO
BE TEMPTED BY A GUY LIKE THIS,
BUT NOT WHEN HE THINKS
I'm A GUY! I DON'T THINK SO!
I WAS SO TEMPTED INTO
SMACKING THE GUY OUT, BUT
BECAUSE OF WHERE ( AND
'WHEN') I WAS...I MADE THE WISE DECISION NOT TO.
SO I JUST CHILLED.....
DID YOU ARRIVE HERE,AND BY WHAT MANNER OF TRANSPORT DID YOU
GET HERE?AND WHICH ONE OF THE SERVANTS 'ALLOWED'
COME IN?AND BY THE WAY,'YOUR ACCENT' SOUNDS MORE 'AMERIKKANER' THAN
ONE SOUNDING "CANADIENE'.....!"
"HOLD IT!" I HAD TO SAY THAT....I JUST
HAD TO FINALLY SHUT THIS OVER "BEARING MOTOR-
MOUTH" UP! THE KING
LOOKED AT ME RATHER
SURPRISED.THEN I COULD
TELL BY THE WAY HIS FACE WAS SLOWLY TURNING RED, THAT HE
DIDN'T TAKE THAT COMMENT
(PLUS 'THE TONE
IN MY VOICE') VERY
AND THE WAY THAT "UN-EXPECTED
MEETING" WAS TURNING OUT,I HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO SHOW HIM "HOW I GOT
"YOUR LORD-SHIP,MOST HIGH AND MIGHTY KING LUDWIG II
OF BAVARIA....,WOULD YOU BELIEVE....THAT I KNOW MORE OF YOU....THAN
EVEN YOU KNOW OF YOUR-SELF?"
KING STARED AT ME, IN BEWILDERMENT.....
"IT IS TIME....THAT I MUST SHOW YOU...SO....
COME WITH ME!" I SAID TO HIM,RE-TRACING
STEPS BACK WHERE I HAD ARRIVED....
"THE TIME MACHINE" WAS STILL THERE....AS I HAD
LEFT IT, AND AT FIRST THE KING BELIEVED
ME TO BE "MAD" (CRAZY)
WHEN I TOLD HIM "TRUTHFULLY" HOW I HAD ARRIVED,IN HIS CASTLE...HE
INSISTED;(and I quote:) " THAT
THERE WAS NO WAY THAT ANY BODY COULD TRAVEL FROM "THE
FUTURE INTO THE PAST!"
"IT IS JUST NOT DONE! I SHOULD
TO THROW YOU OUT INTO THE COLD!
YET; HAVE YOU PUT IN PRISON FOR LYING TO A KING! AND I DO
NOT LIKE LIERS IN
THE KING COULD EVEN GET A CHANCE TO SUMMON ANY ONE,
I TOLD HIM ;
WOULD BET MY LIFE', IF I COULD NOT MAKE THIS MACHINE 'DISAPPEAR'(with
) AND RETURN 'THE NEXT DAY', AS PROOF AND ALSO 'BRING GIFTS
FROM FROM THE FUTURE FROM WENCE I CAME FROM'.
LAUGHED, AND WE BOTH SHOOK HANDS ON IT...."A GENTLEMAN'S AGREEMENT",
CALLED. THEN HE ADDED A WARNING:
'THIS TIME-MACHINE'....AS YOU SAY DOES
DO AS YOU SAY IT DOES WITHIN
HOUR', I WILL COME BACK FOR YOU!"
MOST GRACIOUS MAJESTY, THIS MACHINE
WITHIN TWENTY MINUTES, OR LESS....MARK MY WORDS!"
AS YOU MARK MY WORDS,'JUNGE'! I , TOO
AND THEN I QUICKLY RAN IN........A
CAME OVER ME....WOULD
"THE TIME MACHINE " REALLY TAKE ME "BACK HOME" TO "TWENTY-FIRST
THERE WAS ONLY
ONE WAY TO FIND OUT!
I SPOKE MY WORDS
OF WHERE I WANTED
TO GO....AND WAITED.......
TO BE CONTINUED NEXT TIME.....
