The Adventures of Taco and Cheeseburger Ch. 12

by Maria Yniguez and Lindsey Michelena

Back in Bumshy Head…..

Alison gathers the ingredients from her shelves and carefully pours them into her potion, writing a check mark in the book next to each ingredient as she adds it. Once she has added them all, she stirs them up with a large spoon and waits. “This will only take about 20 minutes to brew, which is actually not long for any potion, and it’s strange because the potion is so complex. But thankfully, we don’t have to wait long”, she explains. After a 20 minutes like Alison said, the potion turns a bright green. “Perfect!” cries Alison. She carries the bucket of the potion to the barrier, with the other three following her. “Now we must pour the potion into the soil on which the barrier is resting. We only need to pour it on a little soil, not the whole barrier,” says Alison. She carefully pours the potion on the soil. Suddenly, the barrier disappears. “You did it, you did it!” cries Garroth. “Now we need to find Taco and Cheeseburger!” exclaims Laurence. “I hope they’re okay”, says Ramses. Suddenly, the barrier reappears. “No!” cries Alison. “The barrier was supposed to be taken down permanently!” She runs for the book. “Wait a minute”, she says, “This says that the potion is supposed to be purple! I obviously did something wrong!” Allison searches the book some more. “Aha, I’ve got it! I know what I did wrong! I was supposed to add malmoSINE instead of malmoSITE! That’s what gives the potion it’s purple color and it’s permanent lasting!” cries Alison. “And do you have some malmosine?” asked Ramses. “No, you can only find malmosine in the woods, and obviously we can’t go there”, says Alison. “Wait, I’ve got an idea!” exclaims Laurence. “You can make that potion again and I can leave Bumshy Head so I can help Taco and Cheeseburger. We have to make sure they’re okay.” “Ok. That will work! I still have just enough of the potion to open the barrier for a few seconds”, says Alison. “Laurence can tell Taco and Cheeseburger about what’s going on in Bumshy Head and that we’re doing all we can to take down the barrier. They can also tell you if they have any leads!” comments Garroth. “At least you can find out if they’re safe”, says Ramses. “Hey, I bet you wish you could go out, right, Garroth?” joked Laurence. “W-what?!”, mumbles Garroth. “You wanna talk to Cheeseburger! Hahaha”, Laurence continues. “W-well yeah, I am her gua-guard after all”, Garroth replies. “Sure Garroth. Suuure” Laurence laughs. Garroth tries to replies but he stutters so much he cannot be heard. Laurence starts laughing loudly. Ramses and Alison are laughing. Finally Alison says, “Okay, enough fun and games-” Garroth glares at Laurence and causes everyone to laugh again. She continues, “Okay, seriously, let’s get to work with our plan!”
