Quandary Resolution 7769
rede, Imbolc, portend, rabbit hole, n.

Now, draw near my dears and let me just rede it to you, as it happened, on that fateful day of Imbolc, the Second of February, in the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand and Nineteen, just as the snows began to fall on what was forecast to be the coldest night of the Winter (so far!) portending strange and mysterious events that would change my life, and those of my companions, Lulu Broon, Jasmine Juniper-Green and Little Levy Balquhidder's two Best Friends Forever, Luc Action Man and Columbine Action Woman – both back to toy-size, I carried Columbine in my back-pack and Lulu had Luc in hers, Jasmine had the bottle of Laphroaig; Lulu, Jasmine and I left Levy's house in Priors Walk and took the Bogle Burn road which runs past the new Borders Crematorium and the old Waird's Cemetery towards Rhymer's Stone, but taking the turn-off to the right which would lead us round the North Eildon and up to the shoulder between that and Mid Hill, there we were to look for what Little Levy called a Rabbit Hole, but assured us that we would be able to squeeze through; once in The Cavern, according to Little Levy, it would be a simple matter of using a compass and counting steps to find the entrance to Tunnel 39 which would take us to our destination; what none of us knew was that in 2038 CE, on Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, two young women were being taken forcibly to a similar Worm-Hole to be transported through Time only, to the same place but in 2084 - the very same Space/Time location as us!
