Part Ninety Three
Hedwig Is More Useful Than Buster
"Couldn't the owl get the key?" observated
"Oh yeah. Where is Hedwig?" blamed Harry
who never remembered his poor familiar ever. Poor rabbit. Or hawk.
Or whatever it was. "Good idea."
"Chin up, Corky," mentored Turf big
brotherly. Being a Hero, he must have sensed Corky was down or
"But Harry, be careful. It could be a
trap," warned The Sneaky Guy who couldn't find any traps.
"It's deep," declared Rocko having
successfully run his Hand in the Water Experiment.
"Nope, bad idea," suddenly mind changed
"Is it jumpable?" asked Rocko who probably
thought that experiment should be left to someone more heroick.
"Hedwig can't pick up keys?" stupified
"We need a raft!" continued Rocko with his
experimentations and completely ignoring the real work being done on
the owl front that would eventually be successful in the key getting
enterprise. "Maybe a corpse! They float!" he suggested
while picturing Buster dead with a sail in his gut.
"Isn't the Hero full of hot air? He should
float even with his armor," snided Dade. But nobody laughed
because the Hero wasn't wearing any armor and it ruined the joke.
The Hero never plays along.
