'No, nothin at all!' Come on then' Don laughed, ' lets carry on lookin. With everythin that's been goin on here it aint no wonder we both actin up kinda strange'.
Sandra hid behind the figure of J.T. He appeared to be hobbling somewhat and his pace was becoming much slower. Now and again he would turn his hooded head as if checking to see if anyone was behind. 'I can't believe this,' Sandra muttered to herself. 'I can't believe that after all I have been through I am now in this awful situation!' 'You okay?' a voice whispered in her ear. 'God Jacky, did you have to frighten me like that!' I nearly jumped out of my skin!' 'OOps, sorry Sandra. But I saw you had disappeared and I really would have died if you had been taken by the White One again! So tell me, what are you doing now?' 'I'm following John Travolta, or whoever he is! Don and Margaret have gone on a walkabout and I saw JT following them. Strange thing though Jacky. His feet. His sandals don't quite foot the bill!' 'Why?' Jacky asked. 'What's wrong with his feet, or sandals or whatever......and I don't see anyone!' 'Look in front, towards the tall stone pillar ahead on the left hand side.......he's there.....Look!' Jacky squinted, trying to see. 'Aah, I see him' she exclaimed, 'I see him Sandra!' 'Well why do you think he is following Don and Margaret' Sandra grabbed hold of Jacky's arm. 'You know what Sandra? You know what that figure is?' Sandra looked at Jacky's face which was creased with laughter. 'That isn't John Travolta, that's one of the old inhabitants of the Castle. He really has been having a fun day with all of you. Certainly lured Michele and Martha back. Boy is he having a laugh now watching what Margaret and Don are up to!'
Suddenly a hight pitched scream reverberated backwards. 'What's the matter now!' Don grabbed Margaret by the shoulders. 'My hair, my hair!' 'Yer hair! Yer HAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIR' Don exclaimed, wondering what his wife was gabbling on about! 'Shucks woman, yer really gettin on my nerves. Yer really are......... I swear to God you got BATS IN THE BELFRY!'

Everyone stared in the direction of the sound coming from the Marsh, and lo and behold, they saw a Tail splashing around!!
Sandra exclaimed "I didn't know this Marsh had fish in it" but was it just a fish? Denise took a closer look and that tail was giantic! "I think it looks like a Mermaid's Tail" she said.
Don wanted to check this out and Margaret quickly grabbed his arm, going with him. "Wellllllll, howda like dat?" drawled Don "If that's a fish then I'ma Mud Pie!" Margaret peeked even closer and saw that it was indeed a Mermaid!
"Oh Honey-pie, I keep seeing dat dere Tail splashing round and round, but for the life of me, I don't see her head!!" murmured Margaret.
Could it be?

The Mermaid's tail thrashed around in the murky water. It was really a sight to behold. 'Splish, Splash I was takin a bath..........' Sandra hummed the tune and Denise danced with excitement.....!
'I'm sorry' Jacky shrugged her shoulders, 'but I haven't got time to stick around at the moment!' Don felt around in his trouser pocket before producing a shiny English penny. 'I always keep this here for luck' he drawled. 'What yer gonna do with that?' Margaret asked, at the same time feeling her head of hair. 'Heds yer win and tails yer don't' said Don, throwing the coin in the air! ' So Jacky, don't hold your breath.........just pray it's Heads Up!
'Heads Up!' exclaimed Denise frantically looking every which way! 'HEADS UP!'
With that Martha and Michele appeared from Nowhere. 'HEADS UP EVERYBODY, HEADS UP!' They all peered into the Water watching the tail writhing around. 'I cant see no Head' Don moaned. 'Where????????'
'Well I am not sticking around to see!' Jacky mumbled, ' Heads it is, and I gotta dash!' 'You can tell me all about it later!'

What they saw was Margaret frantically waving her arms about her head, Don flipping coins in the air, Sandra and Denise humming and dancing, and then Jacky taking flight as Martha and Michele rounded the corner.
It seemed a little extraordinary.
But where was Mr J T?
"Hey everybody, up here", shouted Jack . . . . . but none of the bodies down below seemed to hear him . . .

But Mr. John's attention quickly turned when he saw the Top of a Mermaid!
"Geeezzzzz, dis pad iz wacko"...... "I'z never saw half of a merwdmaidy before!" he said. "She ain't got no tail, but her boobies are nice. Kinda reminds me of dat movie Splash with dat Hanky guy" he continued talking to himself.
He wondered where everyone else was so he took a walkabout around the Castle carrying the Mermaid's Head when he heard the Splish Splash!! "Now, ain't that a site to be seen" he chuckled. "Duh, and I got her Head!"
He started thinking if he really wanted to buy this castle as it was sure getting strange........

'Come to think of it Don, it's DAWNing on me that it's a bit cold round these parts. Don thought for a moment, 'Ok Sweetheart, I hear ya..........meanwhile let me put my arms around ya, and yeh, lets get back .....and quick!'

Meanwhile, Don and Margaret were relaxing now, and no way was she sticking around for that!

They thought they'd knock and say hi.
So over they went, knocked and waited.
No answer. They knocked again.
Again, no answer.
They pressed their ears up against the door. No sound from within.
They quietly turned the door knob . . . . they door wasn't locked so they pushed it wide open!
But no sign of Don and Margaret!!
Where'd they go??

Don and Margaret literally hit the roof as the jumped up from the shock!! Both landed in a heap beside the other side of the bed and as the looked up, Ron had splattered himself against the cupboard on the opposite side of the room from the fright of Don's booming voice.
Woody stood at the door laughing at the scene.
"What the hell do you think you're doing scaring the jiminies out of us like that?" bellowed Don (quite out of character) at Ron.
"Well we couldn't see yer and wondered thought you'd been hi-jacked or something, so I was just checking it out" said Ron apologetically.
As the four collected themselves and thanked God that they were still intact, they joined forces and returned to the fold waiting across the hallway.
