“Hang on,”  said Monkey, who had just arrived at the scene. ” Did you say, you disappeared? We thought you had been taken hostage!”

“That was the idea” admitted Foxy Lady. “I wanted to frame Top Dog and hoped he would be put away. He has done so much damage to the Dedeworld”

“You are crazy!” Monkey shook his head in disbelieve. “Do you know what you did to us? We thought you were dead!”

“Sometimes I think it would be better if I was,” replied Foxy Lady despondently.

“Don’t say such things” Benevolent King cut in on the conversation. “I really believe you would benefit from professional help!”

Foxy Lady hung her head and mumbled “you can’t reason with Top Dog.”

“We all know that,” said Benevolent King, “he just makes up stories as he pleases. It is easiest just to ignore.”

“I couldn’t do it any longer. With his verbal diarrhoea he pushed me until I had to push back” she confessed now. “It was the final straw and I am not proud of it. Hence my disappearance.”

When Foxy Lady got up she realised the figures were only dwarfs. “Are you good or evil” she asked the one that looked like the eldest.

“If you believe in us, we are good” said the stone man “and if you don’t believe, we use our discretion.”

Foxy had so many more questions and continued. “What are you doing here?” she asked.

“We are curing here for a month.”

“And then?”

“We will find a new home.”

“Can I come with you?”

“Hold your horses lady, we don’t even know you. Are you good or evil?” the elder replied.

“Of course I am good!” said Foxy Lady indignantly.

“No, you are not!” called Benevolent King who finally caught up, “you tried to push Top Dog of the shelf.”

“And you reckon that was a good deed, do you?” the stone man wanted to know.

After Foxy Lady was positively identified amongst the Lil’Dedes at the computer, she realised, it was time to move on again. Unfortunately, the Dedes don’t have much stamina and she soon collapsed exhausted in the wet area of the studio. The Dedes are not water tight and so she was sure, nobody would come looking for her here. Unfortunately, when she opened her eyes this morning she realised she was lying at the feet of the stone men, the artist’s latest creations. Some grim looking characters, oh oh.

Can you believe it? Look at the snout on the right hand side. Does this look familiar? What’s happening?
There has been tremendous activity in the Lil’Dede household lately. The smaller finger puppet cousins of the Dedes set up shop on a website for New Zealand crafted goods. They have been tossing up between etsy and felt.co.nz and in the end the went for local. Anyone in the world can buy here though. And look who is helping them! If I get my hands on this Lady she will have to answer a few questions. In the meantime… the shop is called beyond_dedes.felt.co.nz

It looks like the Dede followers are divided. Some want to solve the mystery and want to know what happened to Foxy Lady and others trust she is okay and knows what she is doing. @meinsteingut sent the picture of this old fox, who looks so very surprised, indeed. “Leave the girl alone” he said “we foxes have the reputation for being cunning and sly for a reason.” Then he continued to collect chestnuts for winter.

My friend @fossickandforage found this character when she was fossicking about. Of course she had to ask whether he was hiding Foxy Lady under his blanket. He admitted he had gone to the bike shed that night, as he really wanted to check her out. Sadly Foxy Lady never showed up. I guess that is whay he looks so sad.

Benevolent King pondered how he could trick Norman T Newbie and Top Dog into giving him a sample of their handwriting. This would solve the problem of who has written the notes. While he was still trying to figure out how to go about, we got this picture from our follower @from_delphine She is adament she has spotted the tail end of Foxy Lady on her balcony. What do you reckon? Has anybody else seen her?

After Norman T Newbie and Top Dog had left, Benevolent King picked up the discarded postcard. “Mhm” he thought, “the handwriting looks very familiar!” but he wasn’t sure where he had seen it. One thing was for sure though, the sender of the love note and the postcard were the same.

Top Dog took Norman T Newbie aside and whispered with great statisfaction: “Brilliant, everyone believes that we are truly concerned about Foxy Lady.” He rubbed his hands and added “but I can tell you, if she ever shows up again, I will make sure she goes straight to prison!”

“If she ever shows up again,” repeated Norman T Newbie with a sly smile.
