Adventure on the Orient Express!



After emerging from my secret garden, I was greeted with a post from my dear friend Muse Swings. She invited me on an adventure.....adventure on the Orient Express luxury train. She said all of our friends will be there. Oh how exciting! I simply must buy some new clothes!. The latest fashions no less.

I went shopping and bought all the latest, oh such fun it was.

Then, I secured my passage,


Packed my trunks, I know, I know, but I told you, I bought alot of clothes!

After meeting all the ladies at the train station, we were shown our rooms, OH MY GOSH, this room is beautiful, this simply can't be the room I booked. The steward assured me it was......hummmm, I'll deal with it later....



After setting things to right in my room, I decided to meet the ladies for some refreshments in the dining room. But no one had arrived yet so I slipped out and thought I'd go to the Card room for a minute, see what's happening.

Oh, my... I saw the most dashingly handsome man EVER! I heard someone call his name. I think it was.....James and oh the look he gave me. It was like he could see right through me. I flushed and quickly rejoined the ladies.

I just had to show you the gorgeous view of Prague from the train. After the ladies and I had lunch we had decided to take a stroll to see and be seen. We so enjoyed looking out over Prague. We quickly decided to go to our rooms and freshen up to meet up later for dinner.

As I entered my room I saw something sparkle from the corner of my eye. I turned and my dressing table was covered in JEWELS! THE most gorgeous jewels I have ever seen. I quickly turned and looked about but no one was there. I looked again at the jewels and I noticed a note tucked underneath the most gorgeous diamond necklace I ever saw.


It said, "This necklace does not compare to your beauty, but I would be most pleased if you would adorn it and meet me for dinner at 8:00pm, signed "J"" OMGosh! What is going on here. I rang the Steward and he had no idea how these got here. I could have sworn I saw him smile as he turned to leave.

I tried to locate my friends but they were not in their rooms, hump, where would they go and not invite me! I simply HAD to tell someone. After searching for a bit with no luck, I mean the train is NOT THAT BIG I decided to give up. I went back to my room and just stared and fingered the jewels, ok, so I tried them on too. I sat down in my chair and read over the note again. 8pm was less then an hour away. I decided I would take this adventure, since this trip WAS supposed to be an adventure.

I went to the dining car and was lead to a table for two.

I sat with my back to the wall so I could see anyone who entered the room. I was then presented with my dinner, ordered for me no less,



The waiter poured me a glass of champagne


I looked over to the next table, were they talking about me? Is this some kind of conspiracy? WHERE ARE MY FRIENDS?!!!

The mysterious "J" sent a note via the waiter that he was very sorry, something came up and he could not make it. He hoped I enjoyed the dinner and champagne and the waiter said as he turned to leave, "The gentleman said you looked ravishing in that necklace". WHAT! he has seen me? I said to myself.

As I stepped inside my door, I found an envelope. I opened it and there was a picture with a note. "If you need anything, these people are your private servants"




OMYGOSH, this was just too much. I layed down on my bed for a bit of a rest.

Knock, Knock. I was aroused by knocking at my door. I groggily got up and opened my door and there was Janeen standing there. "Ready for dinner?" she said. I said, "Dinner? I already had dinner, come in, look at......" I quickly looked around, where were the jewels? That's ok, there's the card, where was the envelope with the card! arrrg, where was the picture showing the servants! Gone, all of it. Janeen says impatiently, "What's wrong with you, didn't you get my note that dinner is at 8:00pm? Hurry up, it's almost time to go and we must meet the ladies for dinner."

That was when it hit me. I was DREAMING!!!! I had laid down for a bit of a nap after lunch and Oh my, what a trip this is going to be.....

Awesome!

Thank you for taking me through this dream journey... it's so wonderfully scribed and so reallllllll!!!!!!!!!

I hope I am the first person to read this post.

RoyalTLady said...

Mel,

I don't think I could sleep at all if I were to own such a priceless jewelery!

GrandmaK said...

I'm already enjoying the journey. Can hardly wait for the next installment! Soon I hope! Cathy

Janeen said...

Dahling, this is fabulous! Better than Ms. Christie who is also on the train. I swear I saw her sitting in the lounge, she left her writing papers, a ivory pen and a box of chocolates. I'm looking for Marie as I hear she has quite the hand for inscriptions, perhaps she knows who sent you the note?

Sparky ♥ ∞ said...

You packed as many clothes as I did. I was afraid I didn't have enough ...
I like the dream! That was excellent. :o)
Let's go back to the jewelry and scrumptious food ... YEAH! ♥ ∞

MuseSwings said...

Oh the mystery, the jewels, the mysterious man. Are you sure this was all a dream??? Have you seen Lavinia perchance? She may have some explaining to do......The fortuitous thing is you can do eveything all over again! I'll meet you and Janeen for tea in the Pullman car.

Marie Reed said...

There you are young lady! Your sister has been worried sick looking for you! She's utterly frazzled. There's been a murder and she couldn't find you anywhere. I'm glad that you are safe! We'll have to ring Jean Michel. I think that Janeen needs a hot cup of earl grey!

petra michelle; Whose role is it anyway? said...

I just found out who the mystery man is -- Ian Fleming! Would you care to saunter over and introduce ourselves? With your jewels and my script to play James Bond, how can he resist? ;)

Lyn said...

When you were sitting with James..see the way he averted his eyes? That's because he was looking at me!
That bed can hold a commune..simply gorgeous...
See you at the bar!!!

Tea Time With Melody said...

Well, he might have stood me up at dinner for you Lyn, but I have the jewels! I will wear a sample for you to oogle at over drinks.

Poetikat said...

Between you and Sparky and your bags, we'll be lucky if the train can shift!
That view of Prague is absolutely wonderful; I can't wait to see it!

lmerie said...

Marvelous dream!! Thank your for the wonderful trip (great for one like me who lacks imagination!!)

Janeen said...

I'm so glad your okay, I was looking all over for you asking the ladies if they had seen you. I heard our hostess with the mostest Muses' passport is a forgery! Lock your jewels! They are insured aren't they?

soulbrush said...

senita is still crying and won't come out of her bedroom, and joe is lying unconscious on the bathroom floor, and the quads are screaming....help........

Debby said...

Dreaming? With this cast of players, it won't be long before the nightmare begins.

Lavinia said...

Melody oh my! I was green with envy...I loved everything right up to the part where Janeen knocked on your door. What a spoilsport she is! Ignore that knock and go back to meeting the mysterious J! IF you can walk under the weight of all those diamond carats that is....

Janeen said...

ha ha ~ Makes up for all the times we shared a room growing up.

Marie Reed said...

I missed tea because I was sleeping behind the bar... all that champagne caught up with me...i have a dreadful hangover... but wait.. I have a huge lump on my head.. my memory is returning... Janeen smashed me over the noggin with a bottle of bubbly! Quelle Horreur!

Janeen said...

Nope, nope, it wasn't me! I was locked in my room and couldn't call out! I swear! Dahling Marie, I'm buying drinks for everyone~ meet us in the dining car. Let's put a cold compress on your forehead.

steviewren said...

Oh no! You've been the victim of a "dream sequence." I've read all about this rare phenomenon, but until now I've never met anyone who was a casualty of one. My dear, I do hope you are sufficiently recovered to be able to resume the trip. I hear that there a more than a few scoundrels aboard the train. See you in the dining car later! ta ta

Janeen said...

Guess who's coming to dinner? Muse says James is escorting HER to dinner. I don't think so, he asked you first... dream invitations count you know.

Lavinia said...

Catfight in the dinner car! Who will James dine with!!

Teresa R said...

Marvelous!! Much as I love diamonds and Sean Connery, the picture that most captured me was the Surf and Turf dinner. Drool! LOL!

Janeen said...

Sis, head to Lavinia~ she's posted a nightcap to finish off her evening.

I'm glad you joined us today! Your first blog adventure and you did VERY WELL! I had so much fun today, didn't you? I look forward to our next bloggy adventure! A toast of champagne to you dahling! (glasses tink)

Rob-bear said...

Navigated over to her from Gutsy Writer's blog. Must say you're quite the writer, too. Though I suspect that, when concocted this event, you'd been drinking something other than tea!

Michelle said...

Wow! This was a great post, Melody!! Now I want to go on the Orient Express. Lol! Let me gather a few thousand first. I love that bed!

The Dutchess said...
