Mrs Mum’s heard about Mossy’s parcel and she gone to look for him, so she can help him put his parcel somewhere safe until Christmas day.
She comes across a pile of Christmas presents waiting to go under the tree. But wait! What’s that little glimpse of silver grey fur on the far side, Mrs Mum decides to go look.
” Hello Mossy ” says Mrs Mum making the little bear jump ” What are you doing? ”
Mossy gets up quickly and stands in front of his parcel ” Oh Hello Mrs Mum , what are you doing here? ”
” Never mind what I’m doing ” says Mrs Mum ” Just what are you doing? ” Mossy looks everywhere but at Mrs Mum while he tries to think of what to say ” Arh Mm I was …I was… ”
“Just going to step away from the parcel ” says Mrs Mum….
MOSSY!” says Mrs Mum on seeing that some of the parcel wrappings been torn open .
Mossy sits down with a sigh ” Well it’s my parcel ” he complains
” Yes and you know you must wait until Christmas eve before you can open it ”
” That’s years away ” Moans Mossy
” It’s three days ” says Mrs Mum, Mossy brightens up ” But I know just the person to stop you looking before then ”
Mrs Mum goes to the door and calls out ,Mossy cannot hear what she says but soon footsteps can be heard hurrying up the hallway.
Mossy has what can only be called a …tantrum!!! ” NO It’s Not FAIR … that Old Nasty Viking!! Not HIM!”
Mrs Mum leaves Mossy in Walter’s capable hands.
After a while Mossy stops moaning and groaning and gets to his feet! He stares at Walter fiercely which just makes Walter chuckle and roll his eyes and then he storms off……
Walter keeps guard then he hears the tinkling of a bell!
It’s coming from behind him and to the side. He puts down his shield so that he can draw his sword quickly if needed and makes his way to the side…
He is unsurprised to see the sight of a bear sneaking past the presents towards the back .
“Are you lost lad? ” he questions with a chuckle making Mossy spin round so fast he feels all dizzy and light headed for a minute!
” Where did you come from ? ” demands Mossy feeling a little sick after turning so fast
” Give it up lad ” says Walter sternly ” Be about your business else where!”
” I’ll have you know this is my business ! ” states Mossy ” I was looking for my…… ” He tries to think of something then he smiles ” Jewel I seem to have lost it!”
Walter just looks at him like he’s simple ” Would that be a big green jewel hanging on a golden thread ? ” asks Walter in an awed voice
” Why Yes ” says Mossy entranced
” Well ” whispers Walter ” It’s…..”
” Yes ! Yes !” asks Mossy
“Hanging round your NECK!” states Walter Then taking Mossy’s arm he marches him to the door, put him outside and shuts it behind him.
Walter returns to his post in front of the presents, this is going to be easy he thinks, if I’m up against stopping Mossy getting to these.
He settles down knowing Mrs Mum will be along shortly with some Honey cakes and lemonade to help keep his strength up for the job ahead!……
