Boxes and boxes of even more boxes

Sylvanians: "Oooo boxes- how exciting. Let's explore and see what's in them!"

Me: "Erm, everyone I have something to tell you. My husband has to move to England for work so we'll be moving out soon. I've already quit my job. We'll be leaving very soon. I wish we didn't have to leave. We're really going to miss you!"

The adults gathered together quickly. They looked worried but I couldn't hear what they were saying. Yiasoo walked casually alongside them trying to listen to their conversation, but she couldn't hear what they were saying.

Doughnut tried a less subtle approach, but even she missed what they were talking about.

I'm sure we'll find out what they were discussing soon.

Unveiling the truth - Part 3

The villagers gathered for the King and Queen's announcement.

Some were from nearby villagers who had also escaped. Many were from Ebay Village were injured and had undergone Magical Surgery which had resulted in things such as glitter ears (I don't usually deface my Sylvanians). The families introduced themselves to each other and waited patiently to hear the news.

Nothing could have prepared them for this kind of news though.

King Chip: "Thank you all for coming. I've gathered you here today to discuss a misunderstanding." 

Queen Coco: "It is not an easy thing to tell the children but something which you all must hear." 

King Chip: "A few years ago Wolfy was married to a young wolf named Daisy. They lived down by the lake. The toddlers in our village enjoyed playing games with Wolfy and Daisy. They played hide and seek, tag and the children's favourite- knock a door run." 

A few of the children began to nod as they remembered Daisy and were very fond of her.

Queen Coco: "One hot, summers day Wolfy devised a trick for the toddlers so that when they knocked on the door a bucket of water would fall on them.

King Chip: "Unfortunately the toddlers never visited that day. Wolfy's wife Daisy came home and knocked on the door. The water fell on her head and she lost her balance. She fell into the lake but...."

Wolfy: "She can't swim. My Daisy is dead".

All of the children gasped.

Queen Coco: "We didn't know how to tell the children, so we didn't."

Wolfy: "They didn't know?! I didn't know that. I thought they were just mean."

King Chip: "We thought Wolfy needed time alone after the tragic accident so we told the children not to visit for a while. Wolfy thought that the children were mean because they stopped going to see him and have begun gossiping about him. The children thought Wolfy was mean and scary because you kidnapped them. It's a huge misunderstanding"

Everybody began to cry. It was a very sad day.

King Chip: "The party will go ahead but it will be a party to honour Daisy. I want you all to go home, eat and get some rest."

Wolfy howled and continued to cry.

The villagers left in silence. The truth had been unveiled.

Unveiling the truth... Part 2 (of 3)

Wolfy and Hazel magically appeared. Wolfy was crying and it looked as if Hazel was trying to comfort him.

 Captain Morgan: "Let her go Wolfy. You know kidnapping the Princess is a crime punishable by death."

Wolfy: "I know, I know, I'm so sorry."

Bambi: "Wolfy tried to kidnap the Prince a few months ago."

Hazel: "Ssshh Wolfy, calm down. Everything will be ok."

Captain Morgan quickly lunged forward and grabbed Hazel's hand.

Captain Morgan: "Come with me quickly Princess." Hazel refused the Captain's help.

The King and Queen arrived via a portal.

Chip and Coco ran to hug their daughter.

The King (Chip): "You're in so much trouble this time Wolfy".

Wolfy wimpered and looked down at his hairy feet.

Hazel: "Please don't hurt him. It's not his fault. There's been a terrible misunderstanding."

The Queen (Coco): "But he's kidnapped Rocket, now you, and he's put the whole village in danger."

Hazel told her parents what had happened. 

Chip and Coco: "A Royal announcement will be made regarding Wolfy once everybody had arrived. In the meantime nobody is to harm Wolfy. Find somewhere to sleep and get some rest."

Doughnut kindly let the Sylvanians share her new bed. They snuggled up together and fell asleep wondering what had really happened and why the Royal Family were protecting Wolfy after the terrible things that he had done.

Unveiling the truth - Part 1 of 3

I hadn't seen any new Sylvanians for quite some time. And just when I least expected a new face appeared.

Captain Morgan: "Ahoy there matey, I'm Captain Morgan. Can you see me?"

Me: "Er, yes, er good morning".

Captain Morgan: "Stand back, there are more coming through them pipes girl". 

I watched in surprise as a family of five dropped out of the tap!

Captain Neptune: "Where did the water go?! Aha we're here. Look there she is- it's true- these humans can see us!"

Captain Neptune: "Hello. I'm Captain Neptune and this is Captain Morgan. Behind me is my family, my wife Maria, my son Kai, my daughter Coral and our newest edition Star. The Magic Mayhems sent us though the plumbing system to you- they hoped you might lead us to the Royal Family and ensure safe passage."

Me: "Of course but they are not in. Bambi is here. She probably knows more than I do. Follow me".

We passed Yiasoo on the way and she politely introduced herself.

The Sylvanians climbed the bookshelves quickly and began chatting with Bambi. I spotted them looking at the cat bed as they climbed. It must be a shock for them to see that a Guardian is guarding Sylvanians for once.

Bambi: "The Carrot Family left with the Magic Mayhems over a week ago. Nobody has arrived for weeks- something must be wrong!"

Maria: "It's Wolfy- he's gone mad. He's blocking the tunnels and the portals. The Magic Mayhems sent us through the pipes to get here!"

Bambi: "Wow- through the pipes. That's cool. Only problem is how do we stop Wolfy so that everyone can pass through. The Magic Mayhems must have used up all of their magic. I don't have any wishing dust. Do you?"

Me: "Erm, I have some." 

The magic vial heated up in my hand once more and then BANG!

Sssshhh can you keep a secret??!

I've saved up and bought the doll house that the Sylvanians wanted to get for the Carrot Family. Here's the progress I've made so far:

As you can see I've still got a lot more to do before it's anywhere near ready. Once I've finished painting the outside I'm going to wallpaper the interior, lay some carpets down, then glue it all together. Once that's done I'll be able to give it to the Sylvanians. 

It'll probably take me a few months to complete but I imagine it would take a few years for the Sylvanians to build. I can't wait to see their little faces light up but shhh it's going to be a surprise for them!
