Monday, June 11th: 5pm KT - Sacred Scribe Desk $3975
"G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S.. I'm flyin' first class..."
"Oh no!" I think "Here I am in the gym, and my Fergie ringtone goes off!"
"...up in the sky..."
"Hello?" I whisper in an embarrassed voice as people point and laugh!
"Heyyyyy Merthyn, I have somethin' really cool, hurry over!" says a surprisingly cheerful Arte.
"I'll be right over after the gym" I say, with excitement, must be something good for him to call like this!
"Pumpin' iron, huh? Heh! Take your time, you're pretty scrawny." and starts laughing as he hangs up the phone!
I finish my work out and head straight to Arte's.
As usual, and I've told you before, Arte isn't behind the counter, so I walk around it toward the back.
No sooner than I have taken two steps past the counter, I fall down about 6 feet and everything goes dark!!
"What? Where? Who? Wh..." I'm so confused, I don't even know what question to ask!!
It's really dark and I don't have a flashlight, so I try to think calmly.
"Okay, I know this is Webkinz World and strange things happen here, but there's a logical explanation.. right? I'm still at Arte's, aren't I? What if I'm not? Where could I be? I could be...."
And there went me trying to be logical.
Then, I realized, I could use my Kinz Phone display to light up the area!!
Brilliant, right? Well, I thought so!
As I examined the area, it seemed like I was inside something that was super secure.
I looked up and it seemed to be wood and some kind of mechanism at the top keeping a door shut.
Then, I put 2 and 2 together. Super-Secure + Wood top?
"Oh no, I'm stuck inside a Super-Secure Trapdoor Toybox!"
I've seen Arte use these quite a bit, so I know there's no way out unless he lets me.
I start to worry, "What if he never finds me? Will I starve? Or worse?"
"Where is he? I don't hear him, he won't find me tonight!!" I think.
"I really hope that he sells out of Toyboxes tomorrow, and then he'll sell me to someone and they can let me out!"
"ARTE! ARTE! ART E FACT! HELP!!!!!!!!" I shout and shout, even though I know that there's no use, sound doesn't travel out of the super-secure toybox, only in!
After I calm down, it seems like I've been in here forever and I hear something outside the box...
A muffled grumble getting closer.
"Where is that guy? I told him hurry, and what does he do? Takes his time." he growls.
"And now he won't answer his Kinz Phone, I keep getting his voicemail."
"My KINZ PHONE!" I think "Of course, I can just call him!"
I look down at my phone and "..of course, cell service in these boxes either, great!"
*Clomp* *Clomp* *Clomp* *Clomp*
"...Musta gone to bed early... Be mighty nice to get some extra sleep..." he mumbles.
Arte's walking right over my box, does he not notice that this one's now closed?
"Wooooahkay, here's another one" he says as he sounds like he's carrying something heavy.
"Really.. Should've.. Called Me.. If he.. Wasn't.. Coming!!!!!" he says as he struggles with whatever he's carrying.
"Must be stocking the store for tomorrow.." I think.. "I'm doomed, he'll be too tired to come look for me and won't even know I'm missing!"
I start banging and shouting again, but of course, nothing.
Arte is working his way back, still mumbling and grumbling about "that Merthyn guy... So lazy..."
All of a sudden I get knocked to the side and fall over... The box is MOVING!
"Ehhh? What the.. I can't.. WHY IS THIS SO HEAVY?!" Arte shouts!
"The last one is ALWAYS THE HARDEST! I must be gettin' tired... HEAVE!"
"Wooooooaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!!!" Somehow, I end up upside down, standing on my head!
Then... a BRIGHT, BRIGHT LIGHT!!
"Merthyn? Merthyn? What are ya...?" Arte sounds confused and concerned at the same time.
I feel his furry paws grab me by my legs and yank me straight out of the box!
As soon as I'm on my feet I grab him and give him a huge bear hug.
"Uhh... Th... Umm... You.. Uhhh..." Arte tries to get out words but is too embarrassed by the hug!
"Thank you, Arte! I thought that Toybox was gonna be the end of me!"
"So that's why this one was so heavy!" he says, with understanding now.
"I think I pulled a muscle trying to lift you and the toybox, can you carry it over there for me?" pointing to a corner in the store, while holding his back.
"Sure, of course!" I say, feeling strong after working out.
I try to pick it up, and I can't move it even one inch!!
Arte bursts out laughing,"Havin' trouble there, Merthyn? Maybe you should go back to the gym?!" and he continues laughing.
"Very funny, Arte, who's gonna move it for you? It's so heavy!" I ask?
"Oh I'll move it, I didn't really pull a muscle, jus' wanted to see you try it!" he says, as he starts laughing again.
"Very funny, Arte! Where's the list?" I say, not forgetting the most important thing!
"On the counter, I'll finish up here, see ya tomorrow?" he asks?
"You know it" I say, as I pick up the list and head out the door!
I glance down... "Ohhhhh.. Egyptian.. No wonder he wanted me to come over... I think I'll go straight to Quizzy's!"
