The Sambabus got them to the Ravenslair Park, which is the permanent home to Lovedove and Bubbles’ Circus, in good time, helped partly by the morning’s lighter-than-usual volume of traffic; Ellova Palava parked at the end of the road that led to the edge of the hill that overlooked portacabins, which served as homes for the circus entertainers.

“Oh, it’s not open…” Bubblegum groaned, noticing the outside of the big tent was deserted.

“It’s nearly ten in the morning, Bubblegum,” Matthew Mist said as he stepped out of the sliding door of the Sambabus, “of course the circus isn’t open… who goes to the circus at ten in the morning?”

“We do,” Ellova said curtly, “now remember – find Valentine, get her, and bring her back by any means necessary.”

All five went separate ways after deciding who should check where – Bubblegum was to look in the smaller tents around the side of the big tent, Ellova needed to knock on the portacabins, Matthew was given the entertainer’s vehicles to check, Rust was tasked with searching the woods that surrounded the circus site, and The Opposite Man had to get into the big tent itself to have a look in there – with all bases covered they were bound to find Madam Valentine somewhere.

Bubblegum opened the first tent she arrived at slowly, she was certain she could hear something growling inside, “I hope they don’t have guard dogs…” she whispered, “I’m not too keen on guard dogs…”, she took two steps inside and froze; her fears about her date with the guard dogs not being realised, as she stood face to face with a tiger.

  1. Cats, including big cats, freeze when confronted with two points of attack at once, they cannot decide which to go after first. That’s why the lion/tiger tamer always has a chair/stool, with 3 or four legs pointed at the cats, in one hand and something else in the other hand, usually a whip or pistol. If there are a couple of such things handy, she’ll get out of it just fine.

    1. I’ve seen cats freeze, Mimi, but never thought of the two points of attack aspect before. Bubblegum, on the other hand, has her own way of dealing with ‘issues’! 🙂
