This is the sequel to "Ducky". I have decided to make it a
round robin so...here's the first part.
Gosalyn glared at the book in front of her. Why did she have
to sit and do homework while Dad was out having fun? She slammed the
book closed and threw it against the wall, taking satisfaction from
the loud noise it made. The resulting tremors made from the impact
caused something to fall from a shelf. She walked over to it and
grinned. It was the dimensional time portal device made by S.H.U.S.H.
Gosalyn quickly ran downstairs, then out the back door. She
then ran to the fence and easily scaled it. She walked and ran over
to beneath a window and stooped to pick up a small rock. She pitched
it and winced when the glass shattered. Luckily Mr. and Mrs.
Muddlefoot were rather...oblivious, and their oldest son Tank was
listening to loud music. So all she had to deal with was her
"Gosalyn!" Honker whispered loudly, "That's the fourth window
this week!" But the gosling was already climbing out and down the
tree that grew conveniently close to the house.
"Sorry, Honk!" she whispered back, once he had joined her on
the ground. They both quietly made their way back to her room.
"Now," Honker said in a normal voice, "What is all this about?"
Excitedly she told him her plan.
"Gosalyn! This is a 'time' portal as well as a dimensional
one. That means that...."
"Oh, come on, Honker. We can be the first to ever know all
about the humans. Besides, I kinda wanted to get to know that girl a
little better." As she spoke, she was packing things into a small
bag. "And you get to study this little doohickey."
Honker sighed but picked the device up and began making
adjustments. "I still don't think this is a good idea, Gos. After
all, we have no way of knowing exactly how much time has passed
since we last were there, and I only know how to adjust it for this
Gosalyn waved that aside. "As long as we can get back here
before my dad gets home."
The two friends stood side by side. Honker held the device in
his left hand and raised his right index finger to press the button.
Right as he pushed it, Gosalyn cried out, "Wait! I forgot to pack
food." She turned to run, which knocked the device from Honker's
hands. It fell with a clatter to Gosalyn's bedroom floor, still
active. The two children were gone.
Okay, that's the first part. Whoever wants to continue it
On to Part 2!
