” A dear friend” replies Reuben

” It’s a very long tale ” sighs Reuben dramatically
” Woo ” cries Mossy ” I love tales, I’ll sit here and you can tell me all !”

“…and I was led to believe that the village was filled with quality Sasha’s and Gregor’s ” Reuben carries on, while Mossy listens wide eyed!

“Only to find I have been duped ! ” he throws his arms up “It’s really full of Sasha of suspicious origins and age! why I could NEVER lower my standards to be the bear of a ….WAIF!” he says the last word with disgust!”
“Really Waif ?” asks Mossy not at all sure what a waif is but can tell by Reuben’s tone it’s not someone he wants to come across.

“Now ” says Reuben dismissively ” I must finish my letter so It can catch the first post in the morning, I must escape from here as soon as possible ” he returns to his letter while Mossy leaves.

Mossy goes in search of his little Miss Ginny, he finds her cleaning out her lunch box ready for school in the morning.
” Miss Ginny ” says Mossy sitting down at the table can I ask you something? ”

” Have you ever met ” he lowers his voice ” a ……waif?”

Ginny laughs ” Yes Lots ! Why I’m a waif ”
“Never!” gasps Mossy

“Yes Look! ” says Ginny holding back her fringe to show the missing rows underneath
“NO!” cries Mossy raising his arms in distress
” It’s nothing to worry about ” says Ginny reassuringly ” Waif just means someone whose not perfect ”
” Oh !” says Mossy ” Like me then ! Edward is always saying ‘ he mimic’s Edward ‘you know perfectly well Mossy ‘ and I never do know perfectly well!”
Mossy jumps out the chair and onto the table

He gives Ginny a big hug and a kiss. “What’s that for?” giggles Ginny
” Because I LOVE WAIFS!” says Mossy ” And you most of all!” and gives her a second kiss so she knows for sure!

Then looking very angry Mossy turns away and heads for the door . “Where are you going? ” calls Ginny after him
But Mossy does not answer just hurries off!

Finding Reuben just where he left him Mossy climbs on to the seat and….
