The next time we saw light, was the day that we met Scott and René.
We had no idea where we were, but we noticed that we had stopped moving and had been sitting still in the box for a little while. The trip here had been a very bumpy and very scary one, but we made it alive and that was the important thing. Not knowing what was going to happen next, however, was very disconcerting.
A short while later, we felt the box being picked up yet again; but this time it was different. We were turned one way and then the next (over and over) and finally after hearing this horrible ripping noise, we saw the light! Through the bubble wrap, I saw a hand reach in like a human claw machine and pull Gbob out of the box. Seconds later, the hand reached back in and pulled me out as well.
We were still wrapped in the bubble wrap, but we were now lying on a table in what appeared to be a home. I could see two humans hovering over us talking, but I could not make out what they were saying. Then, the male human picked up a knife and grabbed Gbob off the table. Forgetting that humans can’t hear Gnomish (the official language of Gnomes), I tried to scream, but the sound fell on silent ears. But in watching the male human carefully use the knife to slit the tape holding the bubble wrap together, and then gently unwrap Gbob and place him carefully onto the table, a sense of relief washed over me. The male human then picked me up and did the exact same thing.
Their faces were so happy and kind as they looked down upon us. Any fear that had been building up inside us washed away. They leaned down to us, and the female said, “They are so cute.” “I wonder what their names are,” asked the male. “I don’t know,” said the female, “but we should at least introduce ourselves to them.” And with that, the male human told us his name was Scott and the female human told us that her name was René. They welcomed us to their home and told us that we were going to be joining them on their adventures together. And that is how we became a part of their family. LETS PARTY!!!!
