Princess Blue Holly’s Tangle-Heart guided her to a back window accessing OtherWorld’s tower.
Peering out the only window facing onto OtherWorld, PBH could see DracGoth with Evilomlap Etagloc. DracGoth must have helped Evilomlap escape his imprisonment in a picture frame! Using super hearing, she eavesdropped.
EE – Hissss – This OtherWorld you made is a bit creepy, Drac. Hiss, cough, cough! It’s so dim and dank.
DG – I disagree, Evil. I find it very pleasant down here. I can’t stand all the light and colours up in the real world. That’s why I need SheyGoth to move down here.
EE – Why can’t you just be happy with the effigy of SheyGoth I made you? Hack, cough, hiss!
DG – We used it to crash the Art Gowns fashion show, and suck the colour out of the real world, but all she does here is sit on her throne. Ain’t nothin’ like the real thing, Evil!
EE – You really think Blue Holly will…. COUGH, hiss, come here trying to rescue colour?
DG – Of course, and when she does I’ll demand SheyGoth in exchange.
EE – Hiss, cough, and where is the colour hidden?
DG – In the effigy, obviously! Mwahahaha!
EE – Mwaha… hack, hack, hiss…hahaha!
Blue Holly could see that DracGoth had worked some half dead black bamboo into his drabscape. She got an idea. Using her Tangle-Heart, she contacted Rebecca Budd’s Black Bamboo on Tim’s Magic Tree Sanctuary.
She instructed the Bamboo to have the Art Gowns Models wander through and miniaturize them; then filter them into OtherWorld via its bamboo. She knew from her Tangle-Heart that once the AGMs left OW, they would return to normal size.
DG & EE – What the… Blue Holly and puppets?
First, that’s Princess Blue Holly to you! Only my good friends call me Blue Holly. Second, these are not ordinary puppets. I had the AGMs miniaturized. I thought we could work out a deal. Come closer, look! They’ll put on a fashion show for you!
DG – How did you get in here?
We filtered in through the black bamboo
DG – Evil, burn down the bamboo so they can’t escape!
EE – Done! 🔥
You idiots! There’s more than few ways in and out of here. You’re burning down your own home for nothing!
– Wow! These look good Drac! Hissss, cough! I’ll take Gigi!
“In your dreams Evilomlap!”
DG – I’ll take AGM Marina! I’ve always wanted to play with her.
“I’m with Gigi! In your dreams DracGoth!”
EE – Fiesty little things, eh Drac? I’m taking AGM Holly!
Not so fast! First restore colour to the real world, and I’ll give the AGMs to you. It’s a good bargain. If the AGMs were full size, do you have any idea how much their gowns, make-up and hair would set you back?
DG – Evil?
EE – Let’s do it!
DG – Done, “PRINCESS” Blue Holly! It will take an hour for the colour to return completely!
Looking into her Tangle-Heart PBH could see the first bit of colour slicing through the grey.
Then the Tangle-Heart showed her Resa’s Tree. Although heavily frosted with grey, there was no doubt colour was returning.
DG – I’ll grab AGM Dale! She’ll look cute with SheyGoth and Marina.
Dale said not a word. NOW! said PBH! Whereupon AGM Dale, aka Thunder, created a thunderstorm that grew darker and darker; louder and louder.
As much as she loved DracGoth, he could not get away with stealing the world’s colour. She would not be coerced. AGM Shey thrust an arm into the black of the storm. Using her SheyGoth, she broke the inky dark into millions of swirling fragments.
The swirling black fragments turned red, then became Princess Blue Holly’s long red hair. Using her hair, the miniature AGMs climbed into the tower. They escaped out the back window.
When the thunderstorm passed, DracGoth and Evilomlap found themselves as prisoner puppets of the SheyGoth effigy.
EE – This is horrid! HACK, hissss. cough. I’m going to run out of cigarettes, soon!
DG – Cigarettes? What about our dreams of possessing the art Gowns Models?
Hello Boys! I’m an effigy of Rene Rosso. Blue Holly sent me here to brighten up your drab world, and sing to you about dreams, forever!
Colour is restored to earth. Rene Rosso has vowed that the next catwalk will showcase the Art Gowns Models in full colour.
