Maybelienes Sheep part 3

Sheep happen to be very lucky animals, as they had just stumbled across the house that Tom lived in.

Sean stared down at the house, with his eyes twitching taking in every detail. he noticed that was a big widow open in the roof of the house, which also just happened to be above toms bed.

He paused for thought as a stiff breeze ruffled through his neck, 'How do we get down there?' he was thinking.

'How are we going to get the letter down there?' asked the other sheep.

Now sheep arent just lucky animals, but they are also are quite excellent at hauding things. They would often raid the farm shed usually taking the entire contents that they would sneak out tools hidden under their wool.

The sheep were so crafty that Maybelienes family did not notice them sneaking out of the farm shed, I mean seriously they would not notice a thing. Maybelienes dad would often moan about having to go and replace all the tools in his shed.

'who are these damn fiends?' ho would often shout out loud at the sight of a freshly emptied shed. this would often cause him to go into a stress because it meant that he had to go into the land of somewhere to find replacements.

Of course no one would expect an animal like a sheep to take his tools for they are flea bitten animals.

Sean had earlier raided the farm shed, and he had come across a large roll of rope

'well, I have an idea!' he said puffing out his chest 'you see this long pile of rope I have this long role of rope'.


'And you see that tree over there over hanging the cliff' he said pointing to a burnt out tree that over hang the edge of the cliff.

'Yes' pondered the other sheep

'Well with this rope and all of your strength then you can lift me. and i bet that trees strong enough to take my weight' he said eyeing up the tree.

'Yes and'

'Well you can tie me up in the rope cant you?'

'Ah yeah'

So they set about trying to tie Sean up in the rope. now as you can imagine for a creature with no hands then tying things up are quite difficult, infact it almost turned into mission impossible with various sheep almost choking because of getting the rope caught around their necks as they were trying to hold Sean down.

'Keep steady Sean'

'Ah your strangling me' he said almost furiously as he he started to buck around.

after a while he was successfully tied up all ready to be lowered down the cliff. all of the other sheep grappled the rope in their mouths, even the lambs who could hardly even fit the rope in their mouths were grappling hold of it!

The tree helped take the strain of the rope as they were ready to lift Sean up into the air.

'Are you sure this can take your weight Sean?' asked randy looking inquisitively at the burnt out

'of course it will' he said with careless I know every thing tone in his voice


'Well I am not that heavy I am as light as feather1' now this was certainly an understatement as even though Sean was quite light the last time he was weighed, it was a year ago.

Maybelienes dad used to weigh the sheep once a year, just to keep for records sake. its fair to say Sean had put on quite a bit of weight. He secretly had quite a sweet tooth and was addicted to Chcolate Chip Cookies, he couldnt resist having a nibble on them.

he would often go in search of them in the farmhouse kitchen, leaving behind a messy state in the kitchen he was completely addicted.

So the sheep heaved and just about managed to lift Sean off of the, and Sean then managed to swing himself so that they could lower him down.

'Right now thrn lower me down nice gentle please?'

and so they lowered Sean down the cliff face

'Watch it!' shouted sean as he was almost in inadvertently swung into the Cliff face

sean was admitedly starting to be overcome by the feeling of responcibility as he could see the open window on the roof of the house getting nearer and nearer.

He felt like as if it was starting to become a now or never style situation, there was no bottling it now!

Running through his head were a myriad of thoughts, like is this the right place? and can I really carry this off?

As the window came closer his ears began to be pinned back with fear and a nervouse tension.

He quite literally squeezed through the open window, he could see a young lad lying on a scruffled bed.

toms room was your adverage lads room really, messy with clothes piled everywhere ans posters of various idols lined his walls.

Sean was lowered down so he hovered only inches above the bed. Sean then span himself around so he could drop the letter on a near by bedside cabinet and so he dropped the letter off

'I'm ready hoist me up' he hollered up at the other sheep.

Now sheep can be a little slow at reacting to things sometimes, so they let him hang for a while.

This could admittedly been quite embarrassing, as he was hanging only inches above toms head, I mean what would have happened if he had waken up with Sean hovering above his head. it could have been really embarrassing
'Oi get me up' he shouted

And after while they hoisted him up, thwacking his head against the frame of the open window.

Maybelienes Sheep part 2

Sean rounded up the other sheep just after sunset and lead them off over the hills, you it is important for the farmer not to see them leave as it would cause the farmer to be anxious.

But off they went, over the hills, trundling along the roads and trudging through swamp filled paths.

'Do you know where we are going?' asked one of the sheep.

'Of course I know where I am going, I know this area like the back of my fleece' Sean replied in typical bullish fashion. Of course he really has no clue as to where he was going, its just the usual male matcho bravado of must bee right all the time and never admit to being lost. In that way sheep share a lot with certain human beings with the males claiming to be the dominant ones.

After a while they came to a big wood and by this point the sheep were hopelessly lost.

They pass a tree where a Torney Owl purched, standing up on high in the branches

'Excuse me' bleated the Sheep.

The Owl twitched 'Twita-who are you?', he said as his beaded eyes scaled over the sheep.

The Owls are considered to be the brightest animals around and have an infinite knowledge of this land, they will literally know everything about the land.

'Do you know the way to Toms place?' asked Sean

'Its twit-a-woo miles over that way and far, far away. Over the hills in Mandaley' the owl said with an outstretched wing pointing to a thicket hill.

'Thank you' said the sheep.

So off they went with Sean taking the lead as they began to make the upward climb up the steep slope of the hill, making their way through rough foliage and scaling rocky faces.

Sean was doing his best to keep all everyone of the sheep in check.

'Are you alright?' He shouted to the back of the flock when scaling a particularly sharp drop.

He knew it was important to keep the sheep together as wolves lurked in the woods.

'Sean we need a break as the nippers are tired' said one sheep referring to her lambs. So they stopped on the edge of a near by brook where they took a short rest.

Sean was admittedly a sheep who took responsibility to heart. This admittedly did make him at times a bit paranoid as he watched over the flock, flinching as he kept on thinking that wolves were near by.

He had had bad experiences in the past with the battles with the wolves, they had really scarred him and had made him in way suspicious of all movement.

'Right, wakey, wakey' said Sean poking the other sheep to wake them up.

'We have got to get going' he said as the other sheep took to their feet.

'We cant be too far now as there is a little opening over there, said Sean pointing over to a clearing.

He lead the sheep away from the brook and through the clearing which paved the way for a big open field which was guarded by a battered withern Scare Crow.

'who goes there?' creaked a voice as the Sheep approached The scarecrow.

'We are very lost sheep, looking for Toms place. Do you know where it is?'

The Scarecrow turned its head creating a creaking sound as he mooved

'you see the trail of smoke in the sky coming from the corner of the field'

The sheep looked up and sure enough there was a trail of smoke in the sky coming from one corner of the field. The Sheep were used to seeing lines of smoke coming from the farm house, but they had never see it quite so thick.

'Follow the trail it will lead to his house' said the Scarecrow flailing a withered hand.

'Thank you' said the Sheep.

as they made their way across the field little knowing they were about to come to the border of Somewhere and Nowhere.

Upon the other side of the field the sheep came to a sharp cliff drop. sean peeped his head over the drop following the smoke trail to a house that lay directly bellow the cliff.

Now I know what you are probably thinking, who would be daft enough to build a house directly underneath a cliff? well all I can say is that people were so desperate to be a part of Somewhere that they would quite literally build anywhere. They built on The sides of mountains, buses, Trees, quite literally anywhere. Some poor sod even built a house on top of an aeroplane.

The air was black from all the smoke, the sheep weren't quite used to its intensity.
The longer Sean peered off the edge of the cliff the more he noticed the big buildings in the background towering into the skies.

'Where Are We Sean' asked the Sheep

'We are Somewhere' said sean in a puzzled tone


'You know where, we came from Nowhere so this Must be Somewhere' he said eyeing up the mass forrest of buildings rising up ine distance.
