To put mouse at ease well continue Story Time 3 in this little thread.

The adventue continues as George the Lion is getting ready to capture the Woolley Jumper, aka, the Golden Fleece, or was it Golden Fleas...

All the towers were deep holes in the ground with windows looking inward to the central well. The parks were bits of desert with dead trees sticking out. The Ossians were all walking backwards and studiously ignoring each other. Several shops were carrying billboards saying things like: "Get you're really bad food somewhere else."

"This ain't Kansas anymore, Jayhawk" Incon-orethy mumbled.

Emmm, Nope Wendy. I dont think the Lizard looks like that, i pictured him more of a ...Lizard upright kind. On tow legs...like Barney...but ehh...less purple and...less...gay.

"Oye," Moaned Titanicus, "I'm almost sad we came here..." He sighed, "Now what? I don't think we will ever find the Wizard...Lizard Guy In here!" He moaned...and looked down the hole...

Wendoolicus: I think they're a little more lizardly than wizardly. Our wizard-lizard is yet to be described. Stay tuned - maybe you'll be the one to paint the wizard-lizard's portrait.

Titanicus walked up to the nearest citizen of Ozmosis and asked directions to the residence of the Lizard of Oz.

"The Lizard vacated his cave in that direction," said the citizen, pointing to the large wooden gates through which the party had just entered the city.

"Where could he have gone," puzzled Titanicus to the group.

"He hasn't gone anywhere," said Incon. "He's still here. Remember, this is 'reverse' Ozmosis."

"That's right!" chipped in Civis, "Everything is opposite or the reverse. So, 'cave' means he lives in a true above ground building. 'Vacated' means he is occupying it now. The citizen pointed to the gates, so the Lizard must be in the other direction...that way, I imagine."

The group looked to where Civis was pointing. Sure enough, a tall structure, totally shingled, stood upright and above ground in the distance. The group began to walk in the direction of the structure.

As they were walking, Incon turned to Tusky - and screamed. "He's turned pink!"

Everyone looked at the elephant, who was now a lovely shade of lavender.

"What's happening to him?" Civis wondered, just as Tusky turned sunset red.

An Osmossian approached them. "Why, look everyone!" he cried delightedly. "It's the Elephant Of A Different Colour!!"

Osmossians stopped ignoring one another to smile, laugh and wave at the now-blue Tusky.

"Tusky - you're freaking me out, here," Incon whimpered. "Turn grey again! Please?"

Tusky turned to her, burped - and promptly turned green.

"Only the Lizard of Oz can help our multi-hued pachaderm!" Titanic Guy insisted. "Onward to the not-castle in the opposite direction of the gates!"

Onward they went...

MRed was trailing slightly behind the group, muttering, shaking her head, and talking to herself..."I really think this calls for a healthy dose of "Giza Gold." She withdrew from the folds of her robe a large bag of perfectly rolled smokes, and proceeded to pass them around the group. She also pulled a large bucket out of a pocket, and filled it with a nice blend of her choicest herbals for Big Tusky. "Here, big guy, let's not forget you..."

All of the group gratefully drew the smoke deep into their lungs, and as the euphoria settled on them, they continued their journey...

Meanwhile...

"Righto..." Said Titanicus, watching the others smoke there golden smokes. "Here he said." Handing his back to Red. "I just say no!" He stood upright and proudly put his hands on his hands on his hips...and gave a goofy toothy grin. "You people should look up to me...catch yeer death of...lung cancer ye will..." Smiled Titanicus

"Normally you would, " Jayhawk said to Titanicus, "but these are virtual smokes, so the worst they can do is give you virtual long cancer"
He inhaled some of the golden cloud that was surrounding them,
"The best thing is that is does do wonders for your mood. Even if I normally stick to MReds wonderful herbal teas myself."

"I almost forgot, " MRed mumbled and rummaged through the pockets of her voluminous robes. A moment later a large thermos appeared.
"Here's your tea, Jayhawk"
"My, thank you, MRed. Want a cup o'tea, Titanicus?"

"Jayhawk..." Incon whispered, "Tusky's all gone gold now..."
"Hmm, Ozmosis, seems to have turn him into a chamelofant. Don't worry, he'll be okay once we get out OZ"

Civis started singing a little ditty:

"Herbal tea
Is good for me,
But smoke
Makes me choke.

The tea please, MRed and thank you kindly."

He sipped on the brew as the group slowly ambled to the towering structure thought to house the Lizard of Oz. In awhile, they arrived at the entrance...

Ahhh! No! The Lizard of Oz is more...atractive.

"Nope, its okay." Titanicus shook his head, "I never really cared much for tea!" He smiled...and followed the group as they continued on to the Lizard of Oz's palace....

A little man sitting by the road, the yellow one, that is. He was sobbing dreadfully. His skin was lightly scaley, in iridescent colours.

"What's wrong with you?" MRed asked him.
He looked up at her, and wiped his eyes.
"My staff broke...sniff...and it was such a nice one. It had a knob and now it's fallen"
"May I?, " MRed asked.
She took the two pieces of the staff, chewed a bitmore on her gum and placed it between the know and the staff. Then pushed the parts together and swung the staff around a few times.
It made whooshing noises...

"Jayhawk..."
Incon went to tippitoes to whisper in the angel's ear,
"Do you see what I see?"
"Hmmm?"
"He's got a staff, with a knob on top"
"It must be the liz-wiz, musn't it..."

"I don't know, Incon," said Jayhawk. "Could be. He seems wizardly-lizardly enough."

"Well why don't you go over and find out," said Incon. She gave him a gentle nudge as encouragement. "He looks harmless and I know you're not a fraidy cat."

"Okay, okay. I'll go," said Jayhawk. "Just give me a moment."

Jayhawk began to walk over to the scaley man. The others watched him expectantly. MRed said nothing as Jayhawk approached.

Arriving before the man with a staff, Jayhawk wasted no time in asking, "Are you the famous Lizard of Oz?"

The man lifted his head and looked at Jayhawk through melancholy reptilian eyes. The man replied...

Jayhawk turned 'round in dissapointment.
"He must be a wizards, " Incon said, "He's got a staff with a knob on top"
"...wait a second" the angel smiled as he turned back to the scaly creature again.

"So you're not the Lizard?"
"Yes" it replied
"And you can not help us get back"
"Yes. So please do not follow me."
He got up, his scales iridescent in the sunlight and walked of to the tower.

Jayhawk looked round and said:
"Ya'll coming?"
"But.... " spluttered Tim, "He just said not to follow him..."
"True." the angel replied, "so we musn't let him wait, now should we?"

Civis tapped Tim The Great on the shoulder and said, "Tim-remember where we are...this is 'reverse' Ozmosis. Everything is opposite. The man over there is actually ecstatically happy and just told us he was in fact the Lizard of Oz. Let's follow Jayhawk and the Lizard to where they're 'not going.' Get it now? If not, stay with us anyway, it's bound to get weirder and weirder.

Civis,TTG and the others continued following Jayhawk and the Lizard as they walked towards who knows where.

They had been walking in the feilds then for about 5 hours now and we all getting very energitiec!

(They are running in the woods now for around 2.5 hours and are all getting very tired!)

Just then the sky was suddenly as still as ever! Jayhawk asked does this never happen? The guy with the stick said, Yes this never happens, it's quite unusual!

(Just then the ground was a shakey as ever (earthquake) Jayhawk asked doexs this always happen? The Lizard of Oz said, yes always it's very usual!

The huge tower they had seen from the city of Ozmosis was getting smaller and smaller as the walked towards it. By the time the wiz-liz and the group reached it it was about the size of a small outhouse.

The wizard turned round and said:
"Do stay outside, I'd rather not have your company"
"Let's not, " the angel said and followed him inside.

"Err guys and galls, you coming?" Jayhawk asked few moments later, sticking his head back out of the door.
"We'll never fit."
"It's too small."
"How do the two of you fit?"

"Oh, stop being so strict, come in and put your boots away in the hallway. There's fluffy slippers for everyone. Cook is busy making snacks and drinks are served in the library"

They looked at Jayhawk as if he was mad. Then Civis peeked and started laughing.
"COme on people, there more than enough room for every one. Even Tusky!"

All were sitting comfortably in the Library. The Lizard of Oz noticed that some of his guests had empty plates or glasses.

"Can I withdraw what you haven't eaten?" he asked Jayhawk.

"Certainly," the angel said, "I wouldn't want anymore of these tasteless treats." So he reached for the plate and took three more cheese and cracker snacks. The Lizard appreciated the complement and smiled at Jayhawk.

"May I empty your glass?" he said politely to Civis.

"No thank you," answered Civis. So the Lizard picked up the pitcher of 'punchless' and poured Civis another glass empty.

Tim the Great glanced around at the hundreds of books placed on shelves all around the room. "You certainly have very few books. Have you spent little time reading them?"

The Lizard glanced at Tim and answered immediately. "Thank you for noticing my exceedingly small collection. Yes, master Tim, I spend as little time as possible each day in my library. I have learned almost nothing by spending this time with them."

"Cool," said Tim.

"I'm sorry," said the Lizard. "Shall I turn the chiller on?"

"Yes, really. It's just an expression," said Tim hurriedly.

"Well everyone, I hope you are all exceedingly hungry and thirsty now," said the Lizard of Oz. "I understand you have come to Ozmosis to look elsewhere for me. How can I be of disservice to you?"

The members of the group looked at each other to see who would speak first...

(Quick note to Bobishkindaguy: just hop into a story whenever you see an opening. Read the thread, and add your own bit of the story. That's how it works.)

Everyone was suddenly distracted by a rattling sound. They looked round to see Incontinentia shaking 2 aspirin out of a bottle for herself, and 2 pachaderm-sized headache tablets out of a large clay vase for Tusky.

She looked up at them. "Sorry, folks, but all this backwards-thinking is giving us a headache. We can't make heads or tails of what transpires! Doesn't *anyone* speak properly here?"

The Lizard of Oz stepped forward and asked "Would you like some water to knock back those aspirin with?"

"THAT'S what I'm on about!" Incon gasped. "This fellow spoke clearly, why can't anyone else in Oz? And, by the way, yes thank you - I'd love a glass of water. And a bucket of the stuff for Tusky."

Civis leaned over to her and whispered "...got any more of those aspirin...?"

Suddenly...

The Lizard got back in the conversation. After a few minutes Incontinetia looked at him and said:
"Where's my water?"
"But you said you wanted some"
"So where is it?"
"What?
"The water!"
"Hűh, you just told me you wanted some, so why are so quiet about it?"

Incontinentia looked at the scaly man, then put her head on Jayhawks shoulder and started crying. The angel patted her gently.
"Why's she so happy?" the Lizzard asked.
"She's happy because she can understand everything in our silence."
"Oh, happy girl, shan't I get her nothing to give her a headache?"
"Please, don't"

A little later Jayhawk handed the still sniffing governess a glass of water and a small pill.
"Thank you, sniff. We'll go out side for a minute."
Incona and Tusky left.

"Don't come back" the lizard yelled after them.
Incon started sobbing again.
Tusky turned round and threw him a withering glare.
