A Hideout

“This is. . . . . .sad,” remarked Zing. “It has been neglected.  Why do you want us to stay here?”

Peony was patient. “Because it’s neglected. No one knows who owns it. No one does any upkeep.  The yard is overgrown, the house needs painting, and the windows are so dirty no one can see  what’s going on inside.  It’s perfect.”

“But, Peony, you can see there is no power for lights, or cooking. Or heat. What about that?”

“You two are going to need to learn to trust me.  If you’ll cooperate, I promise I’ll tell you my Zekonian name. Follow me.”

    Zing and Zang need to be careful. Peony seems to be taking over, step by step, I worry about her intentions. I guess that I will just have to stay tuned to find out

  2. I remember places like these from my students days and issues like squatters rights, which came to mind reading this until I reached: ” Zekonian name”.
    Very intriguing. I like it.
    Best wishes,

    1. Exactly what I’m aiming for. I’m so surprised at how this has developed, from the first post, which I never intended to become the start of an ongoing adventure. But I really like Zing and Zang, so forward we go!
