Meanwhile, Back on the Nile
Queen Catshepsut the Golden: Before we return to Egypt, we will stop and visit Cosmo’s Garden.
Beatrixia: Will we have time to share a cup of tea with Trevor-Hotep?
The Queen: I don’t see why not. We’ll have cookies as well.
Beatrixia: Trevor calls them biscuits.
Lupinium: Rumor has it some Blossoms of Blessing have gone missing.
Elvis-Anum: I wonder who could have stolen them? Strange no one’s seen User-Brad lately.
At Cosmo’s Garden
Trevor-Hotep: Welcome, friends! Avenger and Emma are here as well, picking out flowers for their wedding.
The Queen: Looking forward to it.
Trevor-Hotep: I have an unexpected guest as well. A rather bedraggled User-Brad took shelter from the recent storm.
Beatrixia: Brad, you look like something the Human dragged in. Looking for more Blossoms of Blessing?
User-Brad: Alas, I may have been tempted to take a few blossoms for my lady, but I have learned my lesson.
All (sotto voce): (Sure you have.)
From Don McLean: American Pie
Sigh, sigh, Captain Nimble, oh my!
Lost at sea, how can it be? How did he even try?
Now Princess and Angora, they both cry,
And Brad, he continues to lie,
Brad, he continues to lie.
Did you set sail in the midst of a storm?
And subject your lady to her father’s scorn?
What about your kittens, why did you go?
Now I know that Princess is your love!
And haven’t you traveled quite enough?
You love each each other so,
But still you had to go!
Kit and Bandit will both do their best,
To find you so everyone can rest,
But we must all face one hard test,
’Cause this is Our Nine Lives!
The Royal Procurers have their own sources of which we know not.
Queen Mags: Thank you for all your supplies.
Queen Catshepsut the Golden: We were glad to bring you the best of all our dumpsters. Now Sophititi and Iron-Glove can get started on their project as predicted by Baba-Stet.
Queen Cat: Oh, you mean the wedding bells for Avenger and Emma-Peelia?
Tabith-Isis: Maat-Tilda and I want to help with creating Emma’s wedding veil and Avenger’s Tux. Where is the happy couple, by the way?
Iron-Glove: You don’t need to buy the way. You’re welcome to as much as you want for free.
Tabith-Isis: That’s great.
Enter the Head Beaver, Theo-Bromide
Theo: I’ve brought some wood for a fire, and these fine mice have crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate bars.
Queen Cat: Where did my Royal Procures get these items?
Alice-Ata: We’ll never tell.
Queen Cat: Oh well, I don’t think I want to know anyway.
Queen Mags: Ready for s’mores, anyone?
Let There Be Peace on Earth
Let me help all my friends,
And let it all start with me,
Let me help all my friends
An example please let me be!
With direction from high above
Brothers all are we!
Let me give my brother
The help that he really needs!
Let me start by helping now!
No matter what it takes,
Let this be my solemn vow!
To help my friends and bring joy to my friends
Each moment to share with glee!
And let it begin with me!!!
This is such wonderful news.
Meanwhile Back on the Nile
Queen Mags: Welcome to the Land of Afar, Your Majesty.
Queen Catshepsut the Golden:Thank you, Your Majesty. We bring the supplies you requested. Also this little girl.
Queen Mags: Wonderful! Her family has been worried sick.
Enter the Rabbit Family
Mom Rabbit: Bunny! We’ve been so worried!
Big Brother Rabbit: Sis!
Bunny: Bro! I are Bunny!
Bro: You is baby!
Bunny: I are Bunny! I are Bunny!
Papa Rabbit: Now no fighting, kids or no carrot cake tonight.
Queen Catshepsut: So typical. One minute they miss each other the next they’re fighting. Do you need anyone to help chop wood?
Mags: We have the Beaver Crew. We’ll leave it to them.
Sending prayers, good thoughts, and purrs.
As performed by Helen Reddy: I am Woman
I are bunny, he me roar
With teeth to many to ignore,
I can gnaw a carrot or burrow in the ground
I know I cannot fail
From floppy ears to cotton tail,
I are bunny, I are the best around!
Oh yes, I am cute,
But I can inflict a lot of pain,
I can make bunny eyes,
And carrots I will gain,
If I have to,
I can do anything!
I are cute,
I can run real fast,
I Are Bunny!
Queen Catshepsut the Golden: On our way. Is everyone ready?
Puckmosis: Everything is packed and everyone is here.
The Queen: Good. On the way to Afar for some choicest trash talk.
Ta-Natash: Your Majesty, there are three desert rats ahead.
The Queen: Rats, state your business. We have dealt with desert rats before.
Head Rats: Oh those guys. A bunch of juvenile delinquents. No, we need your help. We found this tiny rabbit wandered off from Afar.
The Queen: That’s where we’re headed. Yes, we’ll take care of the little one.
The Queen: What is your name, little one?
Baby Rabbit: I are bunny.
