Chapter Eleven
An important Meeting(1)

 

After everything had been arranged well, the Mouse Queen held a meeting with the cadres to discuss the way of their turning back into humans.
"Your Majesty. Do we have a way of becoming human again?" the assistant asked.
"Yes." the Mouse Queen was quite sure this time,which was very encouraging.
"That's great!" everyone was very happy.
"But we need help from people." the Mouse Queen said, feeling a delicacy about it.
"Who will help us?"
"People will kill us once they see us."
"If we talk to people, our secret will be exposed."
"What shall we do?"
They kept asking different questions and really felt it impossible to get help from people.
Then the assistant asked,
"Your Majesty. Why do we have to get help from people?"
The Mouse Queen admired the assistant for she had asked the right question.

 

She explained,
"I could make up mouse-maker to turn a person into a mouse,
I also know how to make up the medicine to turn the mouse back into a person again.
I have figured out a formula, but we can not make it up without people's help."
"Why not?" asked the assistant.
"First of all, we need a big iron pot which can hold 90 pounds of liquids.
We can not move such a heavy pot."
The witch mice looked at each other, they really could not move it.
"Besides, the formula needs more than a hundred of different ingredients including 3 pounds of baby's hair,3 pounds of deciduous teeth,3 pounds of baby's nail clippings."
"We also need a very important ingredient which can be bought only in China."
"what is it?"
"Powder of human's afterbirth."
"Powder of human's afterbirth!"
"This is a kind of Chinese medicine. An afterbirth is dried and ground into powder.
We have to eat it if we want to become human again,"

 


The witch mice now understood very well that they did need help from humans.
Even if anyone were willing to help, he would have to spend much time and money.
"But who would help us?" they asked.
They all stared at their leader for the answer.
"Only one person can help us." after a pause, the Mouse Queen said positively.
"Who?" Every one was pleased.
"That old oracle!"
"It's her?" every one was surprised.
"How can we find her?" asked the assistant.
"We don't have to find her. She will come herself."
 
 
An important Meeting(2)
 
 
"come herself?" every one was even more surprised.
"Why does she come to us herself?"
"She wants her grandson to turn back into a boy."
"Well, we see," most of them understood.
"She has no choice but to cooperate with us." said the Mouse Queen.
" What about the little eater's father? Won't he come to us?" asked the assistant.
"That fool knows nothing about the witch world. If I am right,
he would beg the old oracle for help."
Now the Mouse Queen began to make arrangements.
She ordered the assistant,
"From today on, you arrange some people to take turns to hide around the entrance of the hotel to keep watching,
and some others at the dinning hall around meal time.
Report once the old oracle or the fool appears."
"Yes. Your Majesty!" said the assistant.
The cadres were all happy and full of hope, they followed the assistant out.
 
 
Every day the witch mice looked forward to the arrival of Grandma.
During the first several days, they were full of hopes.
As time passed, they were more and more disappointed and began to doubt their leader's prediction.
One morning, as they were losing hope, the assistant rushed in and reported,
"Your Majesty, the fool has entered the hotel!"
The witch mice were all excited.
At noon, a witch mouse spying around the dinning hall came and reported,
"The fool went in the dinning hall, made an order and left."
The assistant said,
"Your Majesty. He must have had the food sent to the room for him to eat with the little eater."
The Mouse Queen nodded.
"What shall we do next?" the assistant asked.
" Go on waiting for the old oracle."
She ordered the assistant,
"You yourself go and spy around the hotel entrance with some people,
once the old oracle arrives, report immediately."
"Yes. Your Majesty." the assistant left.
Indeed, in the afternoon, the assistant rushed in excitedly.
"Your Majesty, there she is,you are really wise!"
In the evening, the witch mouse spying around the dinning hall reported that Grandma and Mr.Jackins were having a meal there.
The assistant reported,
"Your Majesty, before the meal, the fool sent some food to the room,
which means that the two boy mice must be in the room. What shall we do?"
The Mouse Queen meditated for a while and said,
"The old oracle will surely appear around the hotel to give us a chance to negotiate with her,
spy around the hotel and find their routines."
