Hidebound Hump Day — Cornelis Drebbel 8

Time to catch up with Cornelis Drebble, Copper and the Woman in Trousers….something very strange is coming towards them as they prepare to leave the house… her is a recap to bring you up to date before you read Wednesday’s episode.

Previously with Copper, the Alchemist, and the Woman in Trousers

Cornelis Drebbel, the alchemist, and Felicity, the woman in trousers met a curious little girl with hair the color of a new penny — Copper.  At her home, they found an unknown dead man in the study, and Copper’s father was missing.  People from a hateful orphanage showed up with the sheriff, trying to take the girl away.  Although they shouldn’t have had any idea she was on her own.  Then some naughty chimps burst into the house and dragged away the corpse.

Chapter 7.  

Previously our heroes found papers and drawings done by Leonardo da Vinci himself!  Yet time was running out for them to get away from Copper’s home before the sheriff (or someone worse) returned.  Complicating things was the fact that they had no transportation.  Then they found an old road locomotive… but it wasn’t working.  Can Cornelis use a trick of alchemy to get it working?

“What is it?” I asked once I could see Cornelis Drebbel properly again.

“There are people coming.  More than one group.  From more than one direction,” he said sounding like he was still trying to understand what he saw.  “We have to hurry.”

All aboard!
