Heightened Heights returned home to a victorious reception after being AWOL – Absent With Official Leave – to find the kingdom in disarray. The elephant in the room was a gold scandal that had occurred at Sausage Airport and required immediate resolution. Because all of the Indunas were giving contradictory responses, it was decided to utilize CCTV – Catch Criminals Using Traditional Voodoo.
Every Jim and Jack went to the More Languish conference center, where a voodoo doctor notorious for charming people with a mysterious mirror was stationed. From journalists to politicians, the masses volunteered to be covered with white powder in order to view the perpetrators in the legendary mystical mirror.
While waiting for the CCTV screening, security staff, airport employees, mine experts, jerabos, engineers, pilots, immigration specialists, and political cadres freely mixed.
The traditional doctor was unequivocal in his prediction that the guilty would fail to see the entire episode on CCTV. He requested the assembled to assist him in identifying the perpetrators of such a horrible crime. In his address, the astute witch doctor indicated that only those who waited until the end of the screening were innocent.
The air was thick with expectancy as the mysterious mirror began to project the arrival of the two jets. All airport officials were the first to exit the screening room. Those from the control tower and the entire security detail including the triple shoes walked out with bowed heads after watching themselves on CCTV.
The cadres who had mined the precious stones were the next to walk out. Their departure was followed by a team that had incorrectly named the gold zinc. It was now time for the bank tellers who had wrongly counted the money to leave. There was chaos as pilots, engineers, and immigration experts, fled to the exit as the CCTV zeroed in on them.
At this point, the witchdoctor threatened to turn off the CCTV as the entire conference center with its thousands became depopulated. By the time the screening was over the facility was empty, except for only two people. The outspoken former ambassador to Cush was left starring at Heightened Heights. You two are innocent, announced the bemused witchdoctor.
My only worry now is how long it will take us to arraign all the videoed culprits including the soul jars!
