Hi, it’s Greenygrey. I/we have decided to call ourselves I from now on, as I feel at one after the enforced separation that inspired Grey’s classic comedy-fantasy, travel-quest, comedy-travel, fantasy-quest Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps epic. And I don’t want to keep confusing you with double meanings when we could just use one!
And I’m still a non-gender Greenygrey werewolf; the last of our kind as far as we know. I might have given the impression I was male yesterday; I must have been in a male mood. Anyway, enough flannel for today, as we’ve got lots to blog you this week, and this one has Werewolf of Oz written all over it. It’s still free to borrow on Kindle for Amazon Prime members by the way, as well as on sale at the lowest price we could choose.
So without further ado, here it is for you to view:
27. FINDING ELLE ON THE HIGHWAY TO HELL
Bonzo didn’t like the sound of that, not fancying hell anymore, and rushed off to buy another two jumpers. Once he was wearing them, he said, ‘They might bring more luck on the Highway to Hell, and anyway, it Ain’t No Fun Waiting Round To Be A Millionaire in a Dog Eat Dog world.’ He pulled his third jumper right up to his jaw, and I heard him whisper to it, ‘I’m Up To My Neck In You.’
We said our Nitmiluk goodbyes, and Bonzo pulled his jumper down far enough to show a big smile. I smiled back, before we headed out into the unknowns of the outback.
Meeting Elle in Outback Hell
We left civilisation behind and headed into the outback. There was nothing but big wide open space ahead, and it all looked red; even the dust sandy path had an ochre coating. We travelled as fast as possible; like bats into hell.
I was beginning to question whether this could really be the correct direction for me to meet my destiny. It looked as if we were on the road to nowhere, and there was nothing of interest ahead.
That was until I saw a crouching human shape emerge out of the dust ahead. We stopped when we arrived in its proximity, and asked if we could be of assistance. It replied in a withering female voice that we should leave her, as she wasn’t worth bothering about.
’Ell of a Job Persuading Elle
Bonzo and I looked at each other, before discussing the matter. We quickly decided that we couldn’t leave her all alone in this harsh environment, and invited her along.
She refused at first, but Bonzo said we weren’t going to leave without her. After a few minutes thinking, she said she would, but only for our sakes; because she couldn’t slow us down any more than not starting.
We laughed, and welcomed her to our Ozyssey.
