Uh-oh. A snag. 

Vincent remembers loaning most of his old Captain Marvel comic books to Mouse – and his Batman, Superman, Steel Sterling and, ummm, Wonder Woman comics as well. 
Which means Mouse likely shouldn't be delivering his messages to Catherine.

Or hers to him.

But Mouse is the swiftest and the most willing messenger.

Hmmmm ...


Picture of Vincent's shelf crowded with toys. Two decoder rings are nestled there.

His Little Orphan Annie decoder ring! Yes!! 
He had two of them somewhere … here they are.

One for him; one for Catherine. 
She'll need the code setting … 

Hmmmm, again.

 He remembered how to use it. 
He set a letter and a number. The dial spun in his hands. 

Oh the words came swiftly and sweet! 

My Love, he began ...17, 22, 21, 9, 23, 7

 He set Catherine's decoder ring to the proper code, wrapped it in brown paper and tied it with string. 
He tapped once for Kipper, entrusting him with the parcel. I must tend to another task and 
I need your help, he told Kipper. 

Take this above for me, please, he asked. 

He tapped again for Mouse who was tickled to be back in his good graces, given yet another chance. Mouse tucked the message into a pocket, patted it, scampered off.

An hour later, Vincent returned to his chamber, his heart full again, another message begging to be penned, umm, coded.

But where was HIS decoder ring?

There were two – one went Above with Kipper – 
but now there were none!
