Tales of the woods V : The rescue (part 2)
In Robearbil’s house Sandra was very anxious. She couldn’t sit around waiting any more. She was walking back and forth trying to calm herself.
“You should eat something, Mrs Sandra” Robearbell said while bringing a tray with some food.
“I am not hungry at all, thank you Roberbell”
“Eat something when you like. I am leaving the tray over here”
Sandra forced herself to eat, acknowledging Roberbell was right.
Meanwhile, at Castle Plun-Darr there was an unusual activity. The Mutants were talking about their prominent plans concerning their little Thunderian hostage. It was quite a catch. Although they hadn't seen the little tiger boy before, they were sure that he was a wreched Thunderian.
-We can bring the Thundercats to their knees, if we play our cards well, yess ....
-Yes, Slithe, ho, ho, ho. The Thundercats won't be able to resist saving an innocent Thunderian boy.
-You are forgetting something, Monkian. The power of the Eye of Thundera. How are we supposed to overcome it and defeat the Thundercats?
-Ho, ho, Jackalman, always optimistic!
-He is right at one thing, Monkian. We must thing of a way to resist the power of the Eye of Thundera. This calls for an alliance with Mumm-ra, yess...
-You go talk with that mummy, Slithe, ho , ho..
-I'm going. Beware of any intruders. Those wreched Thundercats might try to free our hostage, yess!
Tygra overheard the Mutants' conversation from the adjacent corridor. He had made himself invisible to avoid being seen during the rescue mission he was on. Slithe moved towards one of the vehicles at Castle Plun-Darr and took off for Mumm-ra's pyramid.
"I must move quickly and free the boy before Mumm-ra comes here" Tygra thought. Before heading for the dungeons, he had something else to do. He approached the door of the room the Mutants were in and let a white coloured pellet slip through the keyhole. It went to the ground without making any noise and started spreading some kind of gas. Sleeping gas it was. " That should slow them down", Tygra thought.He went down some stone made stairs. They led to the dungeons as he had estimated. Noone was there to guard the door to the basement. Tygra unlocked it and descended another set of stairs, until he arrived to a narrow corridor. There were cell doors at both sides of it. He peaked into every cell, until he saw a boy chained to the wall. The keys to his cell were hanging near Tygra, so he unlocked the door and whispered to the stunned cub. "Don't be afraid. I am a friend. I am invisible and I've come to get you out of here. He easily broke the chains with his bare hands and Tim was free at last.
"We must hurry because more bad people will come. They mustn't find us here" Tygra told Tim. They moved cautiously in Castle Plun-Darr towards its exit. They managed to flee. As they were passing near the room where the Mutants had been sitting, Tygra looked through the keyhole. He saw them sleeping tight.
Outside Castle Plun-Darr, they met Lion-o. Tygra made himself visible again and they all got in the Thundertank heading for the Bearbil village.
"Thank Jaga, everything is all right now" Lion-o said.
"Lion-o, call Robearbil. Let's see if the boy's mother is still in the Bearbil village", Tygra said.
Indeed Lion-o operated the communicator and called Robearbil.
"Lion-o here. Do you read me, Robearbil?"
"I read you , Lion-o. Where are you?"
"We are coming to your village. The Thunderian boy is with us , safe. Is the Thunderian woman still with you?"
"Yes , Lion-o, she is here with us. We are waiting for you."
"See you soon!"
Lion-o turned to Tygra and Tim. The Bearbils are waiting for us along with the Thunderian woman. You will soon see your mother again, boy."
"Thank you both very much for saving me from those frightening people. Who are you?" Tim asked Lion-o.
"I am Lion-o, lord of the Thundercats and this is my comrade, Tygra."
Tim was staring at them, his eyes wide open. "You are Thundercats? The ones that once ruled Thundera?"
"Indeed.We left Thundera long ago,as it was destroyed."Lion-o answered.
"My mom and I left Thundera alone on our spaceship." Tim said. Then, he turned to Tygra. "You are Tygra of the Thundercats, the one who designed the Catslair?"
"Yes. You haven't told us your name, though." Tygra told Tim. The boy didn't seem to hear Tygra's question, so stunned he seemed.
"What's up, boy? Why did you lose your voice? You seem quite surprised " Tygra noticed.
"My mother talked a lot about the Thundercats and especially about you." Tim told him.
"This doesn't seem strange, as you come from Thundera which is our home planet, too." Tygra said.
" The thing is that my mother claims that you are her brother." Tim finally said.
"Wait a moment, boy. What is your mother's name?" Tygra asked, visibly moved.
"My mother's name is Sandra" Tim answered.
"Sandra! Indeed , I have a sister named Sandra. I have many siblings, you know."
"Are you my uncle, then?" Tim wanted to know.
"Probably. Let 's meet your mother first and we will find out, ok?"Tygra said.
"Meanwhile let's hear your name,boy!" Lion-o said.
"Sorry, I haven't introduced myself yet. My name is Tim"
The roofs of the Bearbil village were soon emerging from the woods. Inside Robearbil’s house, Sandra woke up by the sound of a distant roar. She had lain in a bed after having heard the good news about Tim’s rescue, not really intending to sleep. However, exhausted as she was by her worry and her frantic run beforehand, she soon fell asleep. At first, she thought the sound was thunder, but as the noice grew closer, she realized that it was a vehicle’s sound.
“It must be the Thundercats” she thought. Sandra stood up and ran out of the house. The Thundertank stopped and its passengers jumped out. Tim did so too and his mother ran to him. She closed him in her arms crying in relief. They remained like that for some moments, when Sandra finally let go of Tim. “ Oh, baby, I was so afraid.. I am so stupid to have left you alone for so long in this unknown to us planet” she said. Then Sandra turned to the Thundercats “How can I ever thank you enough ? You saved my son!”
“ It is our pleasure that finally all went well “ Lion-o answered.
Sandra then laid her eyes upon Tygra who was staring her in astonishment ever since he had got out of the Thundertank. She was just as amazed as he was. He finally spoke to her:
“Sandra.. is that really you, Sandra, my sister?”
“Yes, Tygra, it is me. Am I so glad to see you! I never believed I would see you again!” They fell in each other’s arms and stayed there for a while, yet not daring to believe at their senses.
Tygra and Sandra were members of a large family. They had spent their childhood years together before Tygra was chosen to become a Thundercat and was taken away from his family to be trained.
Lion-o clearing his throat brought them back to reality and Tygra looked down on Tim, smiling. “Come here, Tim. It seems you are my nephew, after all”. The boy shyly approached and Tygra hugged him too.
Then Sandra , Tim and the Thundercats thanked the Bearbils for their support and their help in finding each other. The Thundercats along with Tim and Sandra jumped into the Thundertank and marched for the Catslair.
