Rocket's trip to London - Part 1 (of 2)

Rocket: "Pssst Yiasoo. Since I crashed my hot air balloon and everybody is busy I was hoping you might give me a ride to London?!"

Me: "Rocket- do you have a death wish? Quick she's waking up. Come with me!"

I decided to give Rocket a ride to London in my little car. Everyone was pretty busy and London is a two hour drive away. (You can see an grumpy guardian in this photo- think someone may have woken her up- ooops)

The drive to London flew by. Before we knew it we were on the London Underground. Rocket was really excited about seeing his friend again.

Rocket: "Oh it's a shame you can't meet my friend Dave. He's funny and really smart. His dancing is just as embarrassing as Dad's though- he he. I hope he has some good advice for me. Oops I've probably told you too much. It's a top secret mission. Pretend you didn't hear any of that". 

We stopped off to do a little bit of sightseeing but it soon got dark.

We went back on the London Underground and headed for Baker Street to find one of the Sylvanians secret portals which would take Rocket straight to Dave's house.

We arrived at Baker Street all too soon. A portal appeared just above a bench. I gave Rocket a hug goodbye, I was going to miss him a lot. Before I had the chance to shed a tear he ran and jumped up into the portal. 

I heard the ding dong sound of a doorbell and then a male voice say "Rocket- it's so good to see you. What an unexpected surprise. Come on in."

Seconds later an alien with three eyes appeared in the portal.

Alien: "Want to see where Rocket is going?"

The alien stretched out it's arms and the portal grew bigger. 

The portal is just big enough for me to squeeze my head in and take a peek. What do you think I should do? Should I trust the alien? Should I trust anything that has three eyes? 

Our ability to see the Sylvanian realm co-existing within our own world is strange enough, how much weirder could it possibly get?

If I had a really quick peek it wouldn't do any harm, would it?

 I'll wait for your responses to decide what to do next...

Sylvanian goodies

I couldn't resist purchasing the Sylvanian beekeeper and pancake set. They arrived this morning ♡

I have a feeling that they will be featuring in some upcoming stories.

Sorry I'm busy!

Rocket: "Dad, can I talk to you for a minute please?"

Chip: "Sorry I'm busy discussing very urgent matters. We'll talk later."

Rocket: "Mum, can I talk to you for a minute please?"

Coco: "Sorry I'm busy. I have to go to Misty's coffee morning and I'm already running late. I don't want to give our Royal Family a bad name now do I? We'll talk afterwards. Oh and Misty asked if you could go and see her about something urgent".

Rocket: "Ok"

Coco: "Don't look so worried. You know Misty thinks the world of you! She's magicked Monkey Pod into the human kitchen. She'll be waiting for you."

Rocket skated downstairs. He was scared. She knew his secret, she had to know. Why else would she want to see him? 

Misty: "Oh Rocket - I need to ask you a huge favour. Would you mind looking after Mango and Coconut whilst I serve up cakes at the coffee morning?"

Rocket: "Oh, er sure. Great yes, of course" he was relieved but disappointed at the same time.

Misty: "Is everything ok dear? You know you can talk to me about anything".

Rocket gulped.

Rocket: "Actually yes there is something troubling me. You see I am the

Rocket was cut off mid way by the alarm on the oven. Misty's cakes were ready.

Misty: "Sorry I'm a bit busy right now. Tell you what, we'll have a chat later!"

Misty began to lay out her freshly baked cakes whilst the Sylvanians began to arrive.

Five ladies arrived for the morning.

Misty: "Thank you all for coming to this coffee morning. I know we are all busy with sorting things out and we'll be moving again soon. I thought it would be nice to add a bit more cheer to our lives. Today I've made some extra special cakes with a secret ingredient which you may want to eat because

Suddenly Misty shook and gasped. She had just had a vision.

Misty: "Rocket...".

Misty ran as fast as her little feet could carry her to have a private word with Rocket.

After waiting patiently for five minutes the ladies all agreed to make a start with the cakes and the juice as they were all positive that Misty would want them to enjoy themselves, plus the cakes looked delicious.

They all enjoyed eating the cakes.

Coco: "I've been a bit greedy and taken two pieces. I skipped breakfast this morning you see" she laughed out aloud.

Isabella: "Don't worry I had two as well" she woofed across the table.

The Queen was secretly eyeing up the last slice of cake but they were saving it for Misty.

After talking to Rocket Misty turned around and gasped at the sight of the empty cake trays.

She tried to hide her shock but failed drastically.

Coco: "We saved you a slice" but Misty shook her head as she didn't want it.

The Queen quickly grabbed the cake and before Misty could stop her she had eaten the entire slice.

A little while later:

Misty: "Coco, I was hoping Rocket would be able to go on an urgent secret mission to London for me? I think he would enjoy a break too".

Coco: "Ok, yes if that's what Rocket wants too".

Rocket hugged his Mother goodbye. Coco abruptly excused herself and left suddenly saying "I think  I was a bit too greedy eating three". 

One by one the other Sylvanains began to feel ill and politely excused themselves as they ran to their homes. Misty said goodbye to Rocket as he left to go to London.

Pepper: Misty my sweetie, how did the coffee morning go?"

Misty broke down and cried, telling Pepper everything that had happened.
