You guys must give a lot of parties because you all have really good ideas! I can hardly wait to see what Spec and Skeeter choose to do for the celebration party!
Tra and Skeeter and I hung out on Friday with some of you. It was so great to see everyone. I was expecting Spec would show up but then he sent me a message saying he had been flying back to Sarillion and he saw a string of Warrior Drones being sent to Machoo his home planet. They were frozen by Greedy Cloud.
It is so horrible what the Darkness does – he clouds people to do what he wants. Have you seen that happen on Earth? Someone you like - your best friend or your sister or your Dad go from being really nice to being angry or snobby or greedy. It’s like they become a different person and you don’t know why. And if you don’t look out, you begin to be unhappy or sad or mean and then you become infected with cloud sickness too.
Like the other day I was hanging out with Tra and we were having a good time. I was showing her how to frost a cake and decorate it. I LOVE to cook and I am so excited about getting a big feast together for the party. This was her first time frosting a cake and we were laughing because she got frosting on her nose. The bag that had the frosting in it backfired and pink frosting came out and landed right on her face. She looked really silly using her tongue to try lick off the frosting. Well all of the sudden she went from laughing to saying to me, “Kimma, it isn’t so funny and don’t laugh at me. You always look so good and I don’t. No matter what I do I always end up looking awful and I make a mess of myself. I didn’t use to care but now it is awful because it always seems like I look stupid right when Skeeter is around.” Then she stamped her foot, threw down the pastry bag and ran out of the kitchen down to her Hovercraft. I was really surprised. I wasn’t laughing at her and I never think she looks bad. She just looks rumpled sometimes because she works out so much and fights the Clouds. But I never said she looked awful. I was just about to start feeling bad myself because she had run away and I have so little time to hang out with friends because of all that I have to do around the Palace, but then my Patience Plant Baby spoke up.
He said, “Kimma, hold on there. Don’t start feeling bad yourself. Tra isn’t mad at you. Did you notice the Cloud mist around her? I think she has been attached by Jealousy Cloud.”
I went to the window and looked down where Tra was getting her Hovercraft ready. He was right! I could see the green mist around her. I knew right away what I had to do. I wasn’t going to get sucked into the Cloud mist and I was going to get rid of it around her. I went running downstairs to catch up with her and brought along my Humor Plant Baby. We both did silly things – I pretended to run into the wall and knock myself out and Humor PB slid down the bannister and went flying past her outside until he was stopped by a tree branch which caused him then to spin around and around the branch. I guess the two of us looked pretty messed up and Tra went from frowning to laughing so hard she had to sit down on the ground.
“Ah ha,” I called out. “Now who looks messed up and stupid?” and I weaved left and right and pretended to fall right into her arms! “Try that next time Skeeter is around and see if he cares what you look like!” I gave her a big wink and she blushed, now I knew for sure what the real issue was. She has a crush on Skeeter and she is afraid he won’t like her!
Oh, I have to go, but I’ll tell you more about Spec and the Warrior Drones soon!
Do you know anyone who has been infected by Cloud Sickness and have you been able to get them out of their mist?
