Queen Marcheline and Jellatine were formally and contractually bound forever as Laotongs, kindred sisters forever and in keeping with this rare Chinese tradition they were theoretically required to learn the secret language of Nu Shu. However, neither Queen Marcheline nor Jellatine for that matter were very enthusiastic about literally learning Chinese or Nu Shu so the Queen's alternative contrivance of correspondence was New Shoe. Being the Queen she could re order things, so the order of the day as ordered by her was that they would craft and exchange pairs of platform shoes for each other with secret compartments in the heels for clandestine messages, foot notes and such whenever they wanted to share their inner most private thoughts. That would be their lexicon. I suppose it was an artful variation of the fan format from "Snowflower and the Secret Fan" and was more appropriate for these two new Laotongs because Queen Marcheline mostly wears a modern take on chopines and Jellatine mostly wears platform shoes. Jellatine, being cherry jelly-jellyfish and prone to speaking Jellonese slang insisted on calling them Jellpals as opposed to "Layo Tongs" (which is how she understood the term Laotongs.)
The first batch of secret New Shoe correspondence went thus:
It’s so neat being your Jellpal Queen Marcheline.
Oh. Is that how you spell it my Jellpal?
Laotong! Laotong! L-A-O-TONG!
Laotong/Jellpal. Jello Shmello. All Mellow ;-)
I really don’t want to have to end up your YELLpal so shall we partake of a temporary hiatus of New Shoe, until further notice, by order of the Queen, your Laotong.
I was only yanking your bell my Jell – I mean LAOTONG! Please forgive me? Please please pleeeeeease???
Oh very well then my Jell – I mean Laotong. However, my chopine collection is overflowing so I think we shall stick to the hiatus.
Yes. My Laotong – enough platform shoes for one day.
And that seriously was the day’s long correspondence of New Shoe. (BTW they didn't make all those pairs of shoes themselves, as the hours and desperation wore on they enlisted more and more help which kind of defeated the object of the whole thing which I think also contributed to the short and not so secret life span of New Shoe.)
