After Calma announced MoME officially closed, Shadow made her way back to the table where Iris and Bob were sitting, while LK and Salem went around congratulating all the contestants and sponsors, except for Fred. LK deemed it unwise to let Salem get too close to the raccoons, so she sent a congratulatory note along with several tankards of grog to their table.
Strolling over to where Iris, Bob and Shadow sat, she looked at Salem. "Are you going to help Iris at MoST next year? Along with Shadow, of course!" she hastily added.
"Are you going to JUDGE at MoST next year?" Salem countered.
LK shrugged. "I will if Calma needs me," she replied. "Might be fun to do it again."
Arriving at the table, they saw Bob looking dazed but happy, clutching his awards as though he were afraid someone would change their mind, and take them away. Iris' expression was a mixture of pride, happiness and relief. "Good job you three." LK greeted them."You really pulled it off." Iris sighed. "I understand Gamling's having a private after party," she said. "Were you invited?"
"Yes. all the judges and Calma were," LK replied. "I guess we'll go for a little while. Bad manners not to show up after all, but I'm really not crazy about barbecue." "Well I am," Salem stated firmly. "We'll make sure we bring back extra for you," he added looking at Shadow.
"OK Salem, spill!" LK ordered. "Where and when did you two go in the TARDIS, and what did you do?" "TARDIS?" Iris echoed. "Where did they get a TARDIS?"
"It was one of the gifts from Gamling to Salem," LK explained. "It wasn't a REAL TARDIS, but somehow these two, with the help of someone named Jack got it working." Iris groaned, and muttered something about having to have a long, serious talk with Jack. "So" LK continued, "Tell me. What did you do?"
"Not much," Salem said indifferently, "We just went back to the beginning of MoME when Calma was making the arrangements for the rooms and the food and such. It seems Shadow," he admitted with grudging admiration, "has a real talent for mimicry. She imitated Louis' voice perfectly, and, on his authority, had all the expenses for MoME charged to his Uncle Guido's organization instead of Calma's MoME account. And the bill was not to be sent until the contest was completely over, just in case there were any delays. Calma will have plenty of money for MoST next year," he finished brightly. "She'll be able to rent an entire planet if she wants."
LK stared dumbstruck. Finally she blurted, "Their Uncle Guido is gonna pound the living daylights out of those two when they get home!"
"One can only hope," Salem smirked, as Shadow interjected, "Remember we only said WE wouldn't do them any physical harm. We never promised no one else would."
LK began to laugh. She couldn't help it. Iris joined in, and after a moment, so did Bob. He wasn't quite sure what was funny, but he knew his ordeal was over. He was going home. That was enough.
