"Ahem, if I may interrupt . . . . Van will be arriving on the train in 20 minutes. If you intend to be on time for your appointment with him at Drummond's Apothecary, we must leave now" stated Lumen.
"Ah, yes, let us go. I wouldn't want to keep my brother waiting!" replied Choco, "He's traveled a long way to come and help us. It will be good to see him again. It's been years since we've worked together."
And with that, they started on their way to the Apothecary . . . . .

And here is an update on our debonair Choco, resplendent in his brocade coat!
That coat took much of the afternoon, too! I also had to adjust Henri's cape as she was most displeased with the way it looked. Fussy little broad, but a good egg! I still have the details on Choco's coat to finish as well as Lumen. Once they are complete I will give my attention to Henri. And who is this Van, Choco's brother? Just keeps getting more interesting as we go! Please note that the story is revealing itself to me little by little, and it does not appear to be writing itself in chronological order.
Since the story is not yet written, here's your chance to play a part - leave me a comment, tell me how you think things are going to play out, what's going to happen next, where the story line is going to go! I will do my best to work some part of your comments into the story line (please, just don't go too crazy)!! I am not sure how much I'll get done over the weekend, but I will try to get in one more "installment" for the impatient among you! ; )
