Sorry, folks, Deb's been a bit under the weather and didn't get any more questions posted in a timely manner! But, she is better now, so here is question number 3!
At the beginning of last year, Freckles braved the Unexplored Territory (the area that Deb calls the Kitchen/Dining Room). She took refuge under a tree to check everything out. Suddenly, a terrible monster bellowed and Freckles quickly discovered another portal leading away from the Territory. She considered whether she should venture even farther from her Home Place.
Question: What Did Freckles Do? Did she go through the strange new portal or did she turn around and head for home?
Bonus Question: Who made the strange bellowing sound?
The answer to both questions will be found in the comment section!
