Edward had been missing for a day or so, he would not tell the other bears where he was going with his little Miss Paige, but he’d said he would be back Saturday at 4 pm sharp!
The other bears had missed him, well not that new bear Reuben but the others.
Well at 4 pm sharp look what turns into the drive!!!!
It’s Edward driving his new car A Morris Minor!
He drives swiftly up the drive turns and parks next to Mrs Mum’s Micra.
He waits a while expecting some of the bears to have come to see if he’s back! Then he calls out ” HELLO!”
” ANYONE HOME?” still no answer so finally he gives up and goes in search of someone.
While Edwards in the house Mossy discovers the car on the drive and is soon checking it out and climbing all over the seats!
Then Reuben appears…
“Ello Gov! wanna buya mota ? ” ask Mossy in his best cockney accent ( He’s always wanted to pretend he’s on only fools and horses !) ” Only in this verra mornin and cheap as chips!!”
Reuben looks the car over while Mossy grins at him from the seat.
“Come on Gov! ” says Mossy getting well into character ” Only one owner me dear ole ma!”
Reuben ignores the little bears ravings and checks the bonnet.
Come On Gov aint got all blooming day! Lets call it a Pony and it’s yours !”
“What an earth are you raving about!” exclaims Reuben ” It’s a car not a pony!”
“Come on mate Lets get you in so you can try it fur ya self!”
Mossy shoves Reuben over the door into the car!
” I aint ..I mean… I am not your mate ! ” says Reuben’s muffled voice from the depths of the front seat
“Strike a light Mate.. I mean Gov It could have been blooming made fur ya! ”
Reuben looks at Mossy with a steely glint in his eye ” I cannot get my feet under the dashboard !”
” And ?” asks a bewildered Mossy ” That’s a problem?”
“Yes You FOOL!” shouts Reuben ” I cannot drive if I cannot reach the pedals”
Mossy thinks for a minute ” No problem what ya need is a driva !”
” Do you mean a chauffeur? ”
While Reuben wonders who Trevor is, Mossy goes off and returns with Hugo, they all change seats , with Reuben sitting in the back , Mossy in the front passenger seat and Hugo in the driving seat.
Reuben likes the idea of arriving at Lady K’s in style !
“Right ” says Mossy ” Lets go for a test drive ! Fire her up Hugo and head for the hills ! ”
Hugo starts the car and heads off in a weaving pattern down the drive .
As the car lurches from one side of the drive to the other Reuben’s thrown back into his seat!
Picking up speed as they head towards the end of the drive and the open road Reuben asks ” How long have you held your driving licence Hugo ? ”
” Oh what’s a driving licence? ” says Hugo ” But I have had lots of practice on the dodgems !”
they hit the road and speed away with Reuben’s shouts of “STOP THIS CAR NOW!” being carried on the wind…
Edward returns with Percy to show off his new car but the space is empty!
Edward legs go all wobbly and he has to sit down ” I’ve been robbed ! ” he whispers…..
