    There were too many orchids looking in on the scene. The old bulbo was snorting his disapproval and shaking his (insert nomiclature here). Several phals were snickering and whispering. Joey languished in his hope that Ruby half lips was still his gal, but he had only a dream.

    Suddenly the sun broke through the leaden clouds and brightened the orchid room. The lowly spurned newcomer reached tenatively toward the healing light. A breath (and a bit' o scotch)..... we all have our weaknesses......
    and Chester still lurked.......

    The light cart was insufferable - the priggish Cattleyas snorted and tsked their disapproval. The Odontoglossums wouldn't speak with her, and the Brassia went so far as to suggest she'd probably give them all a fungus.

    With no blooms left, Ruby no lip had only her torn and battered leaves - hardly beautiful - but at least she carried his children...

    But, wait... Joey the noid was an intergenic... how could it be? The newcomer, in the same alliance with Joey, felt smug and secure with her developing pods.... but Ruby - a queen of the paphs... is it possible?? The first Paphiodontosidium??? Or - had Chester managed to get some pollen from one of the other Cart Dwellers on his whiskers during the fray????

    "You'll not have those 'chids in this house!" boomed the old bulbo to Ruby Lacklip. "And YOU, you little embarrasing twit!" he turned snidely to the newcomer. "How DARE you bring your spawn into this community!"
    The others on the light cart twitched and nodded their agreement. "We must make a plan," whispered the brassy brassia.
    Joey strained to hear their conversation.....

    "No need," the old Bulbo scoffed. "I have the situation completely under control." His irritation was plain in his voice. It was enough he had to tolerate the sickening sweet fragrances of those around him. Why couldn't they smell manlier? It was enough he was addressed by mere hybrids - he, a species of superior parentage. He had been here the longest. He was clearly meant to rule this rabble, and rule he would. Not only did he possess the intellect to lead, he also possessed a secret. And he would use that secret to drive off the offensive NOID's. ...He spoke cat.

    Chester snickered at all the hoddy toddy sniping and bickering going on up on the plant shelves. He knew the Bulbo could speak cat. The old busy body had tried several times to communicate with him. Chester would just ignore him and twitch his tail in annoyance. He knew the high class named variety and species plants were plotting against the trio of lovers, but he had BIGGER plans than that cooking in that evil cat brain of his.

    Now where is that can of spray that the old lady sprays only after putting all of the plants out on the veronda and closing all of the doors and windows. There MUST be something about that stuff that should prove useful.......

    As Chester left the room and headed towards the garage, no doubt in search of more mischief, Joey felt the overpowering fetor of the old bulbo enter his trunk to the point he could taste him.

    Secretly though, Joey admired the old, root-bound beast for the way he could fill the room with the putrid stench of carrion. He was powerful, yes, but worse he spoke CAT. And now - dear, slightly, ever-so damaged, Ruby no-lip, was sagging in her pot with a swelling pod next to this brute. "What ever will I do?" - Joey surmised. He had no plan. And then, like an emergency broadcast system alarm test bursting through the television as you are just quietly dozing off in front of the news in your comfy chair, a round white leather ball with red stitching, shattered through the window and smashed into the old bulbo's fragile, clay container knocking him, Ruby no-lip, and an seedling phrag. kovachii hybrid all to the floor.

    In the other room, the stunned caretaker chipped her tooth on her scotch glass as she was taken by surprise by the ruckus happening in her 'orchid sanctuary'.
