A Lesson Begins

Just walked to the small grove of hemlocks outside of the town. Jester had told him to be there at noon, but he had decided to get there early. He was excited, and wanted to impress the company that he would be running with.

As he came into clearing where the old stone bench sat, he was disappointed to see that DouseThyFlame, Willow, and Jester were already there, laughing loudly with mugs of ale. There went his plan to look good, he thought.

“Well look who it is!” shouted Willow. “Welcome! Did yeh bring everythin’ we told yeh to?”

Just’s face dropped and panic begin to settle in. He began to rack his brain. What had he been told to bring? He couldn’t remember Jester telling him anything other than the time and place. What had he forgot? Already he was looking like an ass. “I, uh,” he fumbled. “Er, I didn’-”

The three burst out laughing. “It’s too easy!” DouseThyFlame choked between big laughs. “Yeh really brought us a fresh one, Jester!”

“Everyone starts fresh, Douse,” she replied. “Even if it was so long ago you cannot remember!” She winked at him. “Just- you’re fine. We don’t bring anything except for sharp eyes when we Scout. But don’t mistake their jokes for a lack of knowledge. When it comes to today, I need you to listen carefully to everything they say.”

“Correct, young Just.” Willow said, in an overtly formal tone. “Everything.” He winked and laughed. “Are you ready to run?” He looked at Just, suddenly serious.

“Yes,” Just replied.

“Great. Let us begin. Follow us, and we will explain as we go.”

They set off into the woods in a line at a brisk clip, Willow up front, followed by Jester, Douse, and Just tailing behind.

Your hares humbly submit the EWH3 entry to the 2014 Tour duh Hash:

Everyone get your favorite taxi cab app ready, because you’re going to need help getting home after you turn up for this week’s trail, inspired by Lil’ Jon himself.  Yup, it’s time to get UberCrunk, so keep your volume at 11, because, honestly, is there a reason to turn down??????

When: 6:45 PM Thursday June 12, 2014. Pack away at 7:15!

Where: Potomac Ave Metro (Blue/Orange Line). Follow marks to the start!
