KAHLILA GIBRAN AND LEVITATION Part 2 :— The Royston Vasey Years
This was preceeded by a troubled part of Kahlila’s life. A certain person tried to kill her off twice, only mine and Tindinks efforts saved her and finally, when she was made homeless by her blog being closed down, she moved to Royston Vasey.
She lived at the pub for a while then she converted the end of the upstairs room in The Shed into a cosy little flat.
Though it tended to get a bit crammed with various gadgets she had built
Master Li had problems at first with the heating arrangements but they got sorted out eventually.
The first time the people of Royston Vasey became really aware of her arrival was when there were several cases of children in the area being found floating several feet above the ground. After questioning it emerged that the common factor was that all the children confessed to having been cheeky to a lady in a Top Hat and Goggles.
During her discussions with Master Li on Levitation Kahlila Gibran suggested they try a combined attempt at Levitation to see if the could raise one of Li’s sheep higher than their individual five feet. The result surprised them both as the height reached was not just double five feet but some multiple of it.
They tried standing at the top of a slope and found they could “fly” the sheep at a considerable height above Colne Valley and control its speed and direction to an extent. Kahlila wrote up their experiment in the Journal of the British Levitation Society.
While Kahlila is very serious about Levitation there are times when her mischievious sense of humour makes her use it for a bit of fun. At the last Royston Vasey Fancy Dress parade she used the fact she can levitate herself up to about five feet from the ground. She dressed up as a witch and made out it was the broomstick that had the magic powers.
She would have probably got the First prize too but for the fact that Nellie Bickersdyke was Lady Godiva. Nellie’s long golden wig was blown off by the wind and all Royston Vasey saw her predicament. They gave her the prize to cover her embarrassment.
