Whatever it was on the end of the line, it was fairly heavy. JS struggled to get it out of the water and up to the airship. Lifting it gingerly into the cabin, he found a black leather Gladstone bag with his name on the side.
"Well JS, what is it?"
"It's that old Gladstone bag that was stolen from my office some time ago. I wonder how it got into the fish pond here."
"Oh but if its been under water all this time, whatever is in it must be totally ruined by now."
JS looked at the bag with amusement. "No, I don't think so. It is made of the finest Quillan leathers hand seleted and carefully fitted to be waterproof when the bag is properly closed."
Elyn guided the airship to a higher altitude before joining Sprocket to open the satchel. He carefuly opened the bag and produced two new model communicating devices from the bag. The larger one was obviously meant for desk use, but Elyn immediately fell in love with the smaller one.
"Oh JS, it's lovely. Can I claim this as my own? You know it would make communicating with you so much easier."
J Sprocket smiled at his ever faithful lover and principal minion. "Of course, my dear, consider it yours. But before you can carry it away, we'll have to make sure it's compatable with the rest of our communications gear."
Elyn had just picked up the device when it began to chime. Tentatively, she pushed a button and raised the device to her ear. "Hello?"
"Hello. Did you know that the FBI reports there is a breakin every fifteen seconds? Please listen and we'll explain how you can purchase a new security system from PDQ Security systems..."
