Incident #6278

Marc's Journal Entry 4
On the road

What a weird honeymoon this is turning out to be. After coming up through the floor in Jacob’s shop, without obtaining any answers from him about the tunnels or our encounters with what May has started to nickname “Octo-puppies”; we went back to the B&B. Pax was all for leaving, and you could see all over his face that he was hemming and hawing about how to broach the subject to Gertrude. I, impulsively and probably dumbly, brought it up for him, then we backtracked, and it all turned into May and Paxton going to see the town doctor, and Shauna and I along for the ride. Not that the doctor was any real help. He gave both May and Pax sketchy unlabeled bottles of pills right from his office. No prescription. Hubby was smart enough to not take them. May took two and was totally out of it. To the point where Shauna ended up staying with her in her room that night. Something is up with Shauna lately though. She seems a bit more shaken up than need be, even for this crazy situation. Did something else happen? Anyway, after everyone woke up, we fibbed to Gertrude about a day trip to the city, sneaked out our bags with the ruse of a domestic squabble between me and Pax, and hit the road. I can only hope the crazy doesn’t follow us. Day 4 end.

We got out alive

Whoa… where to begin!
After a disappointing and unwelcoming trip in to town we all decided to go through the hedge maze together the other day, and it was fun, up until we all made it to the middle. We all arrived in the middle at roughly the same time, and we all got a weird vibe. That’s when we noticed the bare patch where more garden should be. I poked it with a stick and we were attacked and poisoned by something that came up out of the ground! All I remember clearly about that, is tentacles and fur! Later we came to 40 feet below the ground on the floor of some tunnel! We walked down the tunnel and found a creepy church room with an altar that said something in Latin on it. After that we found two separate ladders, we went up the one that had the wooden ceiling above it, thanks to Pax :-) I picked a good guy! It turns out we were below the workroom of that kitschy shop we were in before! We need to figure out what is going on here, and what the heck is up with this place, and what those things were. Day 3 end.

Freaking out

I have just walked into a nightmare.
Seriously, am I awake?
What did we see out there?
What IS this place?
Mom, Dad, if you ever read this, I love you, and I hope I get out of this alive.

Day one.

Arrived late afternoon after a long drive to the middle of NOWHERE. I mean, even if Pax hadn’t forced me to turn off my phone so I couldn’t take work calls (creativity never sleeps), I probably wouldn’t get bars out here in the sticks anyway. The place isn’t so bad actually. At least our room looks out over the gardens and the decor is sort of “Grandma Moses” chic. You can tell the owners love the place even though they can’t remember the uncle they got it from.

The first thing the guy (Harvey? Harry?) said to us when he got over the shock of giving the honeymoon suite to two guys was a warning to stay away from the diner over in Redneckville. Fine by me, Pax picked a nice place and the food is palatable even if the old lady was asking a million questions at dinner. Hubby :-) handled it beautifully when Ms. Nosypants asked him about his face. We had such a nice stroll through the gardens! They even have a legit hedge maze that I want to try out soon! Oh and besides us, the owners and Murder she Wrote, there’s one other guest, a young girl even quieter than us. That suits me just fine though. What with the pressure of planning the wedding, and helping Karl with next winters’ line, I need some peace and quiet.

Day 1 End.
