    She was worried when they started to sprout, but Mysta was there for her. She stood with her when Honeymoon revealed the change to Junior.

    While he lacks Mysta and Honeymoon’s zapping prowess, Tracy is the biggest threat to the plotters. This will likely place him in peril. And lest we forget, Marina has been invited to a meeting…

    Unlike Tracy, Mysta is not married. Still, I suspect she will resist any temptation. Ro-Zan is a bad egg and Mysta is a good judge of character.

    Ghote and Sail are not connected to the deep space Lunarians. The contingent searching for a new home assures that there is a relatively small population in New Moon Valley, which alters the dynamic of a faction plotting violence. Given the excellent images currently coming from the James Webb Space Telescope, deep space is in the news and of great interest to many. The “chosen ones” may come into play in a different story at a future date. Love seeing so many Space Coupes. Team Tracy does Gould proud.

    Thorin says that “many” did not want to live on earth. Others likely preferred it to the unknowns of setting off into deep space. Honeymoon’s grandparents likely wanted to stay, having family here. The plotters have violent aims of conquest that may have little or nothing to do with not being chosen. They see themselves as superior and fit to rule humans.

    There is a faction of the Lunarian community that wishes to undertake a violent conquest. Ro-Zan is one of the leaders. They meet secretly in a hidden location. It seems that Marina is invited to the next meeting, which suggests recruitment is underway. Tracy has been observing activity in the city. He has deduced that the city is warmed by an underground lava flow, the source of which is likely Mt. Erebus. While Thorin apparently favors peaceful immigration to areas beyond New Moon Valley, a minority of council members oppose this. They are likely part of the faction meeting in secret to denigrate humans and plot a violent conquest. Thus, we see Space Coupes secured and guarded.

    In moving freely and observing activity in the city, Tracy has noticed that the population is about half of what he would have expected (given the population back when Junior married Moon Maid). Why? No corpses were observed when Diet Smith flew Tracy and Honeymoon to Moon Valley some time back. Unless the pyramid is now a burial site, about half of the community relocated elsewhere. Where? Listen up. Thorin is about to tell what exactly “not exactly” means…

    Thanks to all for the generous likes. Very much appreciated.

    Reality of mystery puts Tracy in a bind

    Seems the numbers don’t add up. No wish to be unkind.

    Relocation. Population now smaller than before

    Destruction of Moon Valley changed their lives forever more.

    Lunarian longevity remains the stuff of lore

    What we have here a mystery. A puzzle to the core.

    The council it can feud and fuss, but traitors have no place

    Made many adjustments when they traveled here from space.

    Thorin now shall share the truth, which sometimes is elusive

    Simple answers won’t suffice. The facts are not conducive.

    One thing is undeniable. Insurrectionists are traitors

    Rue the day they may have their way, the dishonest, violent haters.
