The Adventures of Taco and Cheeseburger Ch.4


Back in Bumshy Head…..

Laurence is running up to Ramses, saying, “I saw them! I saw Taco and Cheeseburger through the barrier!” Ramses replies, “WHAT! Did you- what did-!!!! Okay, just tell me everything!” Laurene takes a breath and says, “I was walking around the barrier, seeing if there was any way through, and then I saw them. We tried to talk but the barrier is also sound proof, I guess. I eventually waved bye and they left, so I ran to YOU and here we are now. How are we gonna take down the barrier? We need to get it down! Someone might be out to get Taco and Cheeseburger-” Ramses stops him in mid-sentence and says, “Okay, listen, we WILL find a way to take down the barrier. If we freak out we won’t be able to help at all.” Laurence calms down and says, “But HOW are we gonna take it down? We have nothing to work with”. Ramses tries to start speaking but then stops. He’s right. We have no leads at all on how to solve this. I’ll still try to get though, thinks Ramses, even if it’s the last thing I do. Ok i’m being over dramatic.

In the woods…..

Taco is saying, “Ugh, I can’t believe we couldn’t talk to Laurence! I wish we were able too!” Cheeseburger replies, “I can’t believe that the barrier is SOUND PROOF too! On the other hand, our only lead on this mystery is gone, so what now?” Taco takes a breath and says, “I don’t know. That’s one of the reasons why I wish we were able to talk to Laurence. Maybe he, Ramses, Garroth, and Dante have a lead on this whole thing”. Cheeseburger replies, “Yeah, maybe, but if he NEEDED to tell us something, he would have held up a sign or something. He wouldn’t have just walked away”. Taco sighs and says, “You’re probably right. Okay, so now what?”. Cheeseburger replies, “Well, I guess we should just walk around the forest and explore because this will be our home for who knows how long. We probably need to calm down, we can start thinking of a way back into Bumshy Head when we have.” Cheeseburger is rather is surprise at how calm she sounds. In fact, inside, she is not calm at all. She is panicking. There is a siren inside her head going off, and she is being the exact opposite of optimistic. WHY AM I BEING SO CALM!!!! Cheeseburger says in her mind.

Taco, on the other hand, is more calm on the inside. (We said more calm, not completely calm.) She tries to think happy thoughts, but all that pops up in her head is Bumshy Head and her friends that are there. That just reminds her that they will never see it again. Stop being so negative, Taco thinks, We will obviously find a way back in … at least I hope we will. If we don’t … Suddenly Taco’s thoughts are interrupted by Cheeseburger tapping on her shoulder while saying, “Come on Taco let’s camp out in the woods for now”. Taco and Cheeseburger wander into the woods. Who knows what awaits them? But right now, all the girls are thinking about is a way back into Bumshy Head.

Meanwhile, as the girls are wandering the woods, little do they know that they are being watched. A cat is standing very still, watching them. As he is watching them from afar, he can’t believe how well his plan is going. He says to himself, “Soon the world will be rid of them. Soon. Very soon”.
