The new chapters have been sent to the Moderators. Yes, I am posting this early in hopes that they can have a Merry Christmas.
This week's chapters open with Frank's tale of how he became trapped in the tunnels under the Wizard's headquarters.
Following Margie K. healing the burns that he suffered in the fire to destroy the magic Stealing Creatures, they talk and Frank agrees to help her find Celeste. They set out after Frank has a small nap.
When they come to the chamber with the trap and the dead guards, Margie K. demonstrates both of her were-forms to a terrified Frank before setting out to track Celeste by her scent and checks the several tunnels leaving the chamber.
On finding where Celeste was originally kept, she terrorizes Kurt in to confessing how he lured her out of the shell and what happened to her. Then she and Frank continue the search for her.
On detecting her present location, Margie transforms to Macha K to deal with the guards there. Frank detects others on the way there, and they transfer to the empty room that they had visited earlier, where Margie revives Celeste and bring them some supplies before devouring sixty pounds of meat, and going to sleep in her were-form for the night. Frank is left to take care of Celeste.
I'm posting these early and will do the same next week because of the holidays. Hope that all of my readers Have the Merriest of Christmases and the Happiest and most Prosperous of New Year's.
