MP035: Hot Tea Cures All Grudges

Sunrise

Grandfather Pork Bun, through his wealth of connections, negotiated their quick return home first thing in the morning. Father Pork Bun was waiting eagerly for them outside the house, and wasted no time in allowing everyone to freshen up.

By lunchtime both the Dumpling and the Pork Bun Clans were sat round the table. The young couple served tea to their respective elders as a mark of respect and humble apology. Soon the latest news of the missing pair spread through the village – thanks to the newly installed, ultra shiny gossip balloon generator 2.0!

The gossip balloon machine explodes in a burst of colours

The Dum Sum Village’s gossip balloon machine explodes in a burst of colours caused by the overload of recent sightings. In that little part of the world life suddenly seemed so peaceful and silence was felt for the first time in a long while..

Makeshift Raft

So far so good for Miss Pork Bun and Mr Dumpling so have managed to reach the mainland undetected in the dead of night. The Puff Pastry Police on Dim Sum Island may not be known for their high success rates at solving cases but the Mainland Patrol were quite the opposite.

Inside was a miniature model of Dim Sum Village’s noticeboard with a missing poster bearing their faces.

The poster read:
‘Police are concerned for the safety and welfare of two individuals: Mr Dumpling and Miss Pork Bun, who were reported missing on Thursday 7th May.

Mr Dumpling is 19 years old and is described as 10cm tall and slim build. He was last seen wearing a grey t-shirt and jeans.

Miss Pork Bun is 18 years old and is described as 9cm tall and also of a slim build. She was last seen wearing her favorite pink outfit with matching handbag.

Both were last seen leaving their respective houses. It is believed that their disappearances are linked.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Mr Dumpling and Miss Pork Bun is urged to contact the Dim Sim Village Police.’

It would appear that there was not a soul who does not know about their disappearance.
