Interrogator: Does the Marquis have any family – or is he in some kind of relationship?

Lady Bonny (sighing): I wish he were…
  Well, that is also a difficult story. He seems to have lived a life of solitude until recently.

  He still travels a lot.

Lady Bonny:   Every October he usually disappears from Pontelli or Oleon or wherever he is at that time of year.

 Nobody knows exactly where he is going...

... but it seems to be important to him. 

Lady Bonny continues: But to get back to your question - recently it seems, that the Marquis has met someone special

    Over in Eslandola’s colonies – in the city of Pontelli -  there was a grand reception at the Mayor’s palace.

    For some reason the Marquis was also there, awaiting to meet his old friend Colonel Brickinson.

Interrogator: His drinking buddy?

Lady Bonny: The same.

    Brickinson arrived accompanied by a young lady from Terreli.

Brickinson: Lucy, may I introduce you to a friend a mine, the Marquis Eek d’Ape.

Lucy: Oh, a monkey.

(Everyone, except Brickinson,  looked a bit indignant at this unbelievable uttering)

Lucy:  Here, have a banana! Catch!

(Everyone frowned upon this insult.)

The Marquis, however, seemed to take no offense.

    Since then, Lucy and the Marquis have often been seen together. They seem to get along quite well. (sigh)

Interrogator: Another of his platonic relationships?

Lady Bonny: Yes. But why does he not go out with me? (sigh)

 


In case you wondered what has happened to Lucy...

That was my favorite chapter in this storyline.

Aha!  This is the reappearance we've all been waiting for... well, this and the assassin. :pir-grin:   I love the torsos for those grenadiers.  Also a great simple ESL flag design!

The assassin has drowned... I think. 

"Oh, a monkey" - this is my take on the "emperor's new clothes" :pir_laugh2:  Lucy sees what noone else dares to see.

Yepp, this is why I like this episode. It is about his old and his new friends - and life goes on! :pir-sweet:

Is King Fernando the one with the white wig and the dark green cape? Does he want a banana too?

Yepp, the one on the left with cape and wig. He is not a Marquis, however.

The banana is already taken, King Fernando will have to look somewhere else. :pir_laugh2:
