    While Lucy was off searching for her sisters, Icky stayed busy taking care of the Pitmuck Deli and Lucy's garden. She was becoming quite an accomplished cook, although she had learned the recipes only from direct observation. She did not know how to read.

    "Werd, werds, werds," she muttered, paging through the indecipherable books on Lucy's shelf. She knew that one of them contained the story of how Lulu Little got eaten by her sister's dragon; but she could not read the titles, much less the text inside. This troubled Icky. "Miz Lucy sed shee mite beins teechin mees howz ta reedz." She made a mental note to remind Lucy to start on the lessons when she returned.

    Icky's heart jumped for joy when she finally found one book she could understand. It didn't have words, but pictures... simply drawn stick figures that illustrated Pitmuck goblins helping her around the deli and garden. "Mees goinz ta lern ta reedz," she said. "En maybees mees kin lern ta drawz, toos!"

    Mirt made a note to go to Pitmuck. It had been far to long since he had seen his goblin friends. Also if his sources were correct Lucy had set up shop there. It had been far to long since he had seen most of his friends.

    Alone in the deli, Icky studied the little book of stick figure drawings. "Mees kin doos dat," she said to herself. She found a blank book on the shelf, selected a small piece of charcoal from the remnants of burned wood in the now cool oven, and went to work.

    "Dis ib a pictur ob Miz Lucy ridin hom on hers horsie."

    "Dis ib a pictur ob Ozog fallin offen da compost barge." She giggled.

    "Dis ib a pictur ob Mirt en da beeuteefuls Ledy Emma... dey gonna bisit usins soons."

    "Dis ib a pictur ob wees goblins gibin out ice creams cakes at Luna!"

    "Mees kin draws!"

    Satisfied with her creative efforts, Icky tucked the book into her backpack and finished cleaning the deli. When she was done, she took her bedroll out to the garden and spread it out under the apple tree. She thumbed through the drawings again, and a short while later drifted off to sleep, dreaming of books and visitors, and ice creams cakes in every color of the rainbow.

    The day was beautiful and the seas were calm, a little too calm for this sailor's liking as he lacked the proper wind to set a proper course for his home on Port Baldmor. Instead of idly waiting for the wind, the pirate dropped anchor and set towards on of the many island keys that were located just east by southeast of Britain.
    Kerrs slowly made his way along the edge of the sea, when a lone sleeping figure grabbed his attention. The pirate studied the solitary figure sleeping under the apple tree, the goblin slept soundly in the shade and was given to fits of giggles in her sleep. Must be the ice cream thought Kerrs as he eyed the the goblin, its leathery green hide was glistening where the sun hit it through gaps in the foliage, rendering it a slimy effect that repulsed the pirate.

    He was about to turn away and continue walking down horseshoe island when a few pieces of parchment caught his eye. The pirate admired the crude artwork, and was quite surprised the goblin could achieve such a level of detail. He flipped through the parchments before pausing in momentary terror at one of the drawing. It was a familiar female riding her steed. The garb and bow in her hand immediately caught his eye as a flash back ensued. Deadly precision and specially tipped arrows that packed a forceful punch. Kerrs recalled a few of his pirates falling to this archer's deadly bow and pin point aiming.

    A new flame erupted deep within Kerr's heart as the memories came flooding back to him. His crew being tricked with promises of pardons, only to be betrayed and ambushed when their guard was down. A few survived, but many fell as bounty hunters and privateers tried to claim bounties for each red dagger they returned to the crown as evidence of the dead pirate crew. "Lucy Little," the words unconsciously formed on the pirate's tongue as he nearly spat the name out.

    The pirate crushed the drawing between his clenched fist as he fought the urge to keel-haul this sleeping goblin where it laid. No, it would be too easy, and the dumb beast shouldn't pay for its master's past. That sin shall be cleansed by my own hands thought the pirate. Kerrs slowly removed his red dagger from his boot and stabbed the drawing into the tree trunk above the goblin, "Now that murderer Lucy can add another Red Dagger to her collection for a little while... before I come to claim it..."

    Icky awoke at sunrise, stood up and stretched, then froze in place. Something wasn't right... some of the flowers in the garden were crushed, and she noticed two large footprints in the soft soil where her bedroll lay. She glanced upward and discovered one of her drawings suspended above her, pinned to the tree trunk and fluttering in the morning breeze. It had been struck through by a red dagger that some unknown person had plunged deep into the trunk of the tree.

    Heart pounding, Icky raced into the deli and slammed the door shut behind her. The red dagger could only mean one thing. Pirates had found Pitmuck Island! She had to find Lucy and warn her... but first she must find Ozog. He would know what to do!

    "Oh, Miz Lucy," she whispered, wringing her hands together. "De nastys 'ol pirates noes wher yoos lib, en deys badz, badz, badz!"

    Icky remained awake that night for as long as possible, watching over the Deli and occasionally going to the rooftop with her spyglass to survey the hotizon for passing ships. It was after midnight before she finally fell asleep... a restless sleep filled with disturbing dreams of murderous pirates wielding red daggers dripping with innocent blood.

    When she awoke at sunrise, she was relieved to find nothing amiss. Then she noticed the mailbox flag was up. Thinking that there might be a message from Lucy or Ozog, she went out to check it. An uneasy feeling crept over her when she saw the strange objects inside. There was no book... no message... just an old pair of shoes sodden with sea water, and a large wickedly sharp hook. Gingerly, she removed them from the mailbox and placed them into a small bag containing the red dagger and her mutilated drawing. Although she would have preferred to throw the items away, she knew Lucy would want to see them.

    Icky locked the bag in a chest inside the deli, then went about her business, watering flowers and tending the small seedlings she'd recently planted, pausing every now and then to look nervously over her shoulder.

    Icky turned suddenly, distracted by a movement on the water. With a great sense of relief, she began jumping up and down and waving enthusiastically at an incoming ship. An Alliance ship! "Yay!" she hollered. "Welcomes toos Pitmuck! Mees lubs yoos!"

    Icky heard from Ozog... he was going to keep two guards on watch on the island. Her anxiety level eased greatly with these new developments. Lucy also had sent word today that she would be returning soon... possibly by this evening. Icky hoped she might bring news about the missing Little sisters upon her return.

    Mirt gathered a bag it was time to go visit Pitmuck. It was always nice in the summer when everything was blooming. He had heard that a new deli had opened and he couldn't wait to try the food...

    Notice from the ether: Connection still bad... bought new router... got in long enough to add sugar & vanilla & other items to stash that Ozog has access to. Be back in game as soon as new router is up & running.

    *hugs from the ether*
