With no sign of the missing individuals the two families are deeply worried. But then as if to answer their prays sightings all over Dim Sum Island were reported.
‘The forest on the island is so dense but I’m sure I saw them near the Tea Fortune Teller’s house.’
‘Oh dear! They gave me such a fright- one minute snooping around the soybean fields and then suddenly, gone!’
Ms Egg Tart:
‘I saw her at the foot of the hills. I’m sure she was Miss Pork Bun. She had such a striking resemblance to the image on the village notice board.’
After the very public row between the Dumpling and Pork Bun Clan it is not a surprise that they were the talk of the village.
Have you just stumbled across the Monster Parade and want to know what’s just happened in the Dim Sum World?
Start by taking at look at Monster Parade entry number 21: Love is in the Air!
Today has been a day of rejection. I hope things look more optimistic tomorrow.
Time passed painfully slowly for Mr Dumpling’s parents, who found themselves looking at their wall of family photos and reminiscing about happier times..
They felt so helpless sitting there waiting for news. All that went through their minds was: “There must be something we can do….”
And so they went to the Soybean Bank to assess the family fortune. After raiding deep into their vaults, a reward of 10000 soy was posted for any useful information that would lead to the location of Mr Dumpling.
Miss Pork Bun’s family felt they could not be left behind and promptly doubled the reward for information relating to her.
It was not long until things escalate as the two family’s long running feud resurfaced and the village noticeboard was completely covered, leaving the local puff pastry police looking rather bewildered.
That morning Miss Pork Bun found a package outside her tent waiting to be opened. She took it to the pond, where Mr Dumpling was fishing for their breakfast, to unwrap it together.
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.
