Quilly Three Word Challenge#8

Words for Three Word Thursday are;
nescience-absence of knowledge

This story will continue from Raven's Challenge mini.

There were propinquity in the small cafes such as the Poets Corner. Sandy Shore had nescience of gypsy folk lore. She went to table after table asking questions, hoping the young man would show himself to her, but she began to hear susurrus. The questioning was not random on her part, as she went to the tables where the llama would stand next to. She avoided the tables where the panther hung out, and she was getting annoyed that her penguin was not helping in her search.
The statement, "Here is the penguin companion, " made her look to where the voice came from.
There was the young man with the striped shirt. He motioned for her to sit down at the table, which had two other people at it. At last someone who could give her some answers. The young man introduced his companions, Janice and Stan. The panther now came to the table, so she supposed that one Janice or Stan was connected to it. The waiter came to the table and Sandy gave her order.
A loud explosion interrupted her first question. Smoke and fire were coming from the kitchen area. The invisible animals herded their companions out of the burning building to safety. Sandy was not sure if the others in the building could see the animals, or not but they followed them out without panic.

This story will continue in Raven's Challenge.

I'm really enjoying the way you have continued to give us little pieces of the big story, adding more characters to it as you go. Gives us something to look forward to each week.
