As she found herself in a flurry of tourist singing to them outside the Tower of Terror, Belle in a most unusual way finally found herself met up with her detective team once again. "You! Yes, you! Aha! Watch out for that scientist on the rampage!" Belle looked over at King Candy and then up to where his highness was ecstatically gesturing. She turned and her eyes were finally open to the chaos surrounding her as Doof had some how become a giant. "What the -"- Belle could not help shouting at the sight in astonishment- some tourist still taking pictures of her while others excitedly took pictures of the scientist- thinking it was all part of a show and adaptation of Godzilla. Belle quickly ushered tourist away from the scientist and looked up at Doof bewildered and wondering if this was just the work of one of his inventions. "Aha, well miss! Where have you been?" King Candy said casually admist the chaos as Belle found himself next to him. Belle looked over at him almost blankly. Where did she begin? When they had found Poor Jim Hawkins' body, she had to take a moment for air outside- it was so much to take in that once again detectives were being targeted- and he was such a nice young man as well. When she had gathered herself and was ready to head back with the group... She couldn't find where everyone had gone. And all since then she had vainly been trying to find them. She thought it would be simple enough to just follow where a crime scene was, but the security was quick to keep as much as possible from the public's notice and treated belle like a guest when she asked questions even though she insisted she was on the investigating team! And then through it all she was fielding phone calls from Mrs. Potts who was lamenting Chip's refusing to go to school and how she feared he was becoming more rebellious as his teen years were approaching. Belle tried to calm Mrs. Potts and gently note it as normal behavior especially considering he didn't have a normal childhood.... "Aha, miss, did you even hear me?" Belle snapped back to reality at King Candy's question, insult in his tone at her appearing to ignore him. "Yes I'm sorry- I just ended up getting lost," Belle said, deciding to make a long story a short one. She nodded graciously at him, "Thank you so much for helping me not only find you but escape the scientist's latest mishap. Dare I ask what I missed?" "Aha, yes well a lot for sure and most of it gruesome!" King Candy laughed, twirling his cane giddily. "Let's see- Marie was killed, and a random guest - And the zany brave triplets are no longer with us- not like you were no longer with us but really no longer with us... Oh and most important of all, Crickee and I won a race! Aha, isn't that exciting?" Belle's face paled at King Candy's rambling synopsis. Maybe she should have stayed lost after all... OOC: I hope you don't mind me borrowing King Candy, Lady Dobbins! And yes! I will definitely try to get Belle back in the swing of things with the others now that i have time to post again! I hope I didn't go off too much in trying to explain Belle's whereabouts => and if I at all contradicted anything that has happened, please feel free to correct me!
