Ham and Co. were never meant to be written into the Orb. In fact the story never had an Orb at all.
The entire chapter was hacked from beginning to end. Unfortunately, someone is trying to write Ham,
Laine and Mike out of Fickletitious. The original story line sent the Trio to find their next clue at Leo’s
Luscious Lizard Lips Jam factory and solve a series of 3 jig-saw puzzles enabling you to receive your next
download. That never happened. They never took the tour of the factory, they never found the puzzles
and they never will. All 3 jig-saw puzzles, Ham’s, Laine’s and Mike’s were incinerated in the Orb crash.
The last chapter was an exhausting battle of the pen as Ham’s Writer tried desperately to save The Trio
as another hostile writer simultaneously tried to eliminate them. The outcome is still unknown, the orb
exploded on impact and Mike is right. There is only a 1 in a billion chance of survival!
Ham, Laine, and Mike were each expected to solve 1 of the 3 puzzles. Each puzzle will result in a portion
of the final answer. Once all 3 puzzles are solved they will yield an answer. Just as Ham could not
complete all 3 puzzles himself…neither can you. You’ll need help from others!
