Edward seeing that Mossy was looking a little…upset, sits down and talks calmly and softly.
” Miss Ginny will be so happy when you get back home, she’s kept your place on her bed ready for you to have a nice rest ” Mossy just stares at Edward, which makes the little Panda very worried he continues talking ” I see you managed to get Mrs Miggins to give you one of her lovely cakes !”

” Yes ” whispers Mossy ” She said I looked very scared and needed something nice to perk me up ”
” Well than was very nice of her ” says Edward soothingly ” Why were you scared? ”
” Because I saw her!”
” Who? ” asks Edward ” Mrs Miggin’s? she’s a nice lady ! why would you be scared of her? ”

Mossy looks away before saying ” I saw her…you know…the one the sage told us was coming ”
Edward’s confused for a moment then remembers being with Mossy in the garden in the summer and being told some one was coming to stay and hide in the village.
“Well ” he says bracingly ” I am sure we will cope with whoever ‘she’ is! So you have no need to worry”
” But I saw some thing else!” trembles Mossy..

Edward moves round and gives Mossy a big hug ” What ever it is we’ll face it together ”
” It .. ” whispers Mossy ” It….coming…It’s……a Viking hoard …blood thirsty Vikings with swords and shields to do for us in our beds ! ” finishes Mossy in a rush.
Edwards sighs ” Well I am sure we can defeat any Viking horde that attacks the village ” not believing Mossy sure he’s been watching dvd’s he shouldn’t have  ” any way I’d just let Gertie and Aimee loose on them and they’d soon be running off home!”
That makes Mossy smile.

“Come On ” says Edward getting to his feet and helping Mossy up ” If the Viking’s are coming we’d best go tell Gertie and Aimee to keep watch. If they get past Gertie and her moaning and Aimee and her question’s
we’ll need Mrs Mum, Nothing will get past Mrs Mum !”
The thought of some Vikings daring to wave  swords at Mrs Mum , finally makes Mossy giggle and get to his feet, he’s going to make sure Miss Ginny and Him stay right beside Mrs Mum until the danger’s passed. He’s not sure about the other problem but he’ll worry about that when it appears!

Edward helps Mossy off home ” Let’s get you a nice cup of tea with a big spoonful of honey to go with your cake, then you can have a long rest in bed ”
” Mm Honey tea sounds lovely but I am sleeping in Mrs Mum’s bed and so is Ginny !” he states firmly
Edward wonders what Mrs Mum will say to that!!!
