Jem meanwhile was slumped over his office desk having taken a swig too much brandy in an attempt to come to terms with his lack of performance. It had been a shock to him to realise that he was not as all powerful as he had thought he was and an alcoholic stupor was his favourite way of getting through the day.

Madge meanwhile took the packet to her private room, where she opened it carefully. The last package had broken mid-flight, leading to some unexpected consequences. She did hope this one had been a little more successful. After all sucess was what it was all about.

Joey was getting rather fed up. Madge had dashed out without telling her whether or not she could go and roll around in the snow and make herself ill. With no orders to the contrary she was on her way to do so, when she was struck with a sudden idea...just what was the return address on Madge's airmail packet?

"Well, come on, let's grab it and go," said Joey, entering Madge's room. The package had been left on the bed, and she picked it up, following Robin out of the room.

A moment later, Madge and Jem entered.

"I'll ring him and let him know" smiled Jem, picking up the receiver and placing the call.

Jack, who had just prepared another parcel, answered and sighed with relief on hearing that it had arrived intact and had not been intercepted by Marie, like last parcel.

"Jem, I'm knackered and I'm going to struggle to keep this up for long!"

"Jack, my man! We're counting on you! Keep it up, please and do let us have the next consignment soon. Get some brandy, that'll revive you."

Jack grimaced as he hung up but knowing that success was imperative, set to his task with vigour never seen in a man before.

"Jem," she said. "I can't see it."

"Honestly, Madge," he said, a hurt expression coming over his face. "I know it's small, but it ought to be visible, at least."

Madge frowned and gestured at the pillow.

"I left it here! And it's gone!"

"But who would have taken it?" said Jem, tightening his grip on the turkey baster.

"I think I know..."

Madge hitched the neckline of her chemise slightly higher and strode with determination out of the room.

Jem stared at the door for some time, before his brain picked up the idea that maybe he should try and find out who the culprit was, before all of the sounds of an argument downstairs happened and he dashed to keep the peace. As he went, he didn't even notice the Robin, looking extra-innocent while holding something behind her back.

Madge stopped in her tracks, skiing was the last thing on her mind, vertically anyway.

"Why would I be skiing?"

"Well I can't think why else you'd dress like that."

Madge sighed, "Joey, someone really must have a 'little chat' with you soon. Now, have you seen Marie, I think she may have something I need rather urgently."

"I think she is in the kitchen, she usually is, but the door is locked."

Madge frowned at this news and stalked off, her little bunny tail shaking as she went.

Joey turned to unwrap the package, which she had been holding behind her back, but instead she jumped and dropped it as Robin let loose an eldritch screech.

"Robin!" she gasped. "Whatever is the matter?"

Robin appeared quite unable to speak, but only pointed, her face deathly white and her eyes wide with the sort of horror that no human being should have to endure. Joey turned round and screamed.

"Jem!" she yelled, clapping her hands over her eyes. "Please go and put some clothes on. Now! Just go!"

Jem was rather flustered by this time, noting his appearence, and Joey's comment.


Madge shook herself. 'Yes, Jem,' she said weakly. 'I think it might be aswell for you to get some clothes on. You never know how these two might be after that shock!'

Joey tried to smoother a giggle, but failed helplessly.
