"Mr. Speedy squirmed in his seat. He had to relieve himself, but where? Needing to get Anne's attention he first barked, then jumped off the chair and lifted his leg on the waiter who was taking the order from the next table.
The cockatiel shouted, 'Shame on you, you canine beast!'
As Speedy was to Carlo and Anne, the cockatiel was to the patron at the neighboring table. He perched next to the man on a specially mounted bird-stand.
At The Infinity Club, all were welcomed and fed.
Cowering, Speedy hid under Anne's chair. He heard Mr. Infinity's Voice within.
Speedy, your instincts will be subdued. I Forgive you, as does ST Mercy, on whom you relieved yourself. He is not only a waiter; his Spirit resides within a young palm tree. He is known as a Spirit Twig. There are many of his kind working on earth at this time. They Speak Through Me, for all plant life He will bring both you and the cockatiel, Intelligent Juice of New Knowledge.
Mr. Infinity turned Attention to what appeared to be a mouthy, judgmental cockatiel. His Voice BOOMED. This time not within, as in a telepathic gentleness, but as THUNDER. Remember all is not as it appears.
EVIL SPIRIT, BE GONE!
All the patrons jumped at the sound. There was not a cloud in the sky, or a thunderhead to be see.
A dusty, smoke-like entity could be witnessed emerging from the possessed bird, and then, it blinked out of view just above his head.
Mr. Infinity Said, That is much better. Many spirits have much to learn.
The cockatiel, to his owner's surprise said, 'Polly wants a cracker.'
Everyone laughed in relief.
Poor innocent ones are easy prey for these wayward spirits. I Will Have None of this nonsense in The Infinity Club, nor in Heaven.
"Mr. Speedy came from under the chair, his tail wagging. If he could have shown a smile on his face, he would have. His curiosity matched both Carlo's and Anne's on the purpose and contents of the bright yellow dome.
Anne asked Carlo. 'What do you think is in there; do you see a door?'
'Your guess is as good as mine,' He answered. 'It resembles a large glass punch bowl. Can you see through it?'
'No, only reflection of the garden and us! Look at that; do you see the others?' She asked.
Carlo stared at the dome, squinting his eyes. He saw only himself, Anne and Mr. Speedy. All the tables were there, with the plants and the strange waiters. It was surreal watching them float effortlessly on their roots from table to table. He looked at Anne and also noticed almost all the tables were full, but the guests not reflected.
'No, only us. I don't think this place is on earth. Nothing is. Where are we?'
He wondered what time it was. His watch had stopped at noon.
Before Anne could answer, ST Patience arrived holding a gigantic tray made of bamboo. It must have been very heavy. On it were nine, transparent containers for liquids. Each one was monogrammed with the recipients name written in white letters. The containers were made of an unknown material, which reminded Anne of golden carnival glass, but light and delicate. Behind him, ST Mercy followed with another tray, holding only two similar containers.
For Carlo's table, the names on six of the containers were his own, which included all the drinks offered on the menu!
Anne's was on the Leafy Tea Served in a Gourd, and Mr. Speedy written on Intelligent Juice of New Knowledge. A gourd sat next to the nine containers for Anne's tea.
ST Patience poured Some Things Fishy into the brook where the school of fish quickly gulped the liquid. Bubbles popped to the surface and floated in rainbow colors down stream.
ST Mercy stood at the next table to the right, and first served Polly Intelligent Juice of New Knowledge. He carefully poured it into a smaller cup hanging near the perch. To spill this Juice was not a good idea. Per Mr. Infinity's Instructions, the STs had poured this on the ground throughout the garden at daybreak. A double dose in one day would be too much for the ground dwellers.
Polly's owner had not yet ordered, but received the same drink. He dared not say anything, after what Mr. Infinity Said to Polly. On the container - in white letters- his name sparkled. Fred.
Everyone being thirsty, drank. This was when Anne noticed the sun had not moved from overhead since they had been seated. The line to get into The Infinity Club was roping down the beach as far as she could see. Carlo followed her gaze.
'Oh my,' he thought. 'How am I going to drink and eat the entire menu?'
He had the feeling Mr. Infinity would Require him to finish every last drop and bite.
