Week One - Task #02. - "Not There On Time"

Postby Prof. Sindor Aloyarc » Sat Apr 01, 2023 11:32 pm

Immediately upon arrival, the scene at the party is in a state of intrinsic chaotic masterpiece.

{For the love of Jabberwocky} you shoot an ‘I-knew-this-was-a-bad-idea’ look at the tiger lilies in a clear vase on a stand by the front door, who don’t seem to be impressed by your huffiness.

Apparently Queenie’s “special order muffins” …never made it? And her friend —though they keep using that term loosely— Jack (who’d gone to retrieve them) is uncharacteristically nowhere to be found.

Half the guests are squawking feverishly about how furious Queenie will be when she finds out. You wonder where she is, given how late you’ve come yourself.

“That’s Queenie for you,” says Pilar, clicking electric green nails on the coffee table while reaching into her purse to retrieve an eyebrow pencil and mushroom shaped compact mirror.

She’s the only guest who’s lounging in a big, comfy chair, while the others are all in some state of either rushing around the enormous home, or discussing whether Jack stole the muffins himself or was, who knows, intercepted you guess.

Someone apparently said they could have sworn they’d spotted Jack at the party, which makes more sense why so many people are searching around, but that Bunny-Soo was sent to hop her way around town just in case.

You’re not used to being addressed by the most popular guy in town, especially without Queenie by his side, so it feels weird when he glides over solo to question you, then asks for your assistance.

Kingston has always been a very gentle and enthusiastic kinda guy, and the worried look on his face has you up searching around with the rest of them straight away.

Heading for the stairs, you hear Pilar being asked to help too, and can’t help but smile while shaking your head at her perfectly deadpan response.

“…Why?”

Task:
Use the following Maze to help check the house for signs of Queenie’s special muffins, then Send Me Your Solution through a private message!

Along the way you happen upon a piece of paper you oddly believe to be directed toward you. After sticking it in one of your pockets to scrutinize later, you ponder over what you’ve just read:

The guests in question (including Doris) arrived in fifteen minute increments between 4:30-5:30. Decipher who these suspects are, each of their arrival times, what they contributed to the gathering (including Lemons), and the five different kinds of tea they were drinking before you got to the party.

It was signed with the letter -K

You’re unsure of its relevance, but entirely certain it’s bound to come in handy down the line, and focus your attention once more on making your way through the winding corridors.

Alternatively you may post a bit of Creative Writing explaining some of your hunt around the house in 135 words or more, or contribute a Spill The Tea research piece in 135 words or more, sharing interesting, unusual, or little known facts in your own words about any person throughout history.

This task is worth 15 beans, with an additional 15 bonus beans for completing all Week One tasks by end of activity. Deadline is 11:59pm (HOL time) on Sunday April 30th.
