Sophie Elizabeth comes across an unknown bear sitting in the dayroom.
" Hello " she smiles " Who are you?"
" About time " complains the little bear " I had to fight my way out of that box before I expired in all this heat!"
" Oh dear !" says Sophie Elizabeth shocked at the little bears words " I'm so sorry but no one was expecting you "
" That's because I am a surprise" states the bear " you can read that note " he points at the note beside his box.
"Oh how lovely " says Sophie on reading the note " You are to live with us now"
"Well " says the little bear importantly " That depends on the quality of your clan!"
" Really " asks Sophie
" Yes " states the bear " I cannot just belong to any old body you know!"
" Oh " says Sophie " Is there a certain type of Sasha you have to belong to to?"
The little bear produces a photo " Do you have one of these?" he asks excitedly
" Oh A Panda ! Yes " says Sophie
" No not a Panda ! " says the bear " A studio doll ! "
"Oh No " says Sophie " did have an NP girl, Anastasia for a while but she moved on"
The little bear sighs deeply " No Studio doll or Np ! Just what have you got"
" Well , we have lots of nice Sasha's "
" Well Lets meet some so I can make my selection " says the bear grumpily
Sophie calls in Callico Kate for the little bear to meet.
" Hello " says Callie " I do not have a bear at the moment " she says shyly.
" Mm and you still don't " says the little bear rudely " NEXT!"
"How rude !" says Callie turning to leave the room only to hear the little bear call after her.
" And find a brush ! You look like you've been pulled through a hedge backwards!"
" Oh this is much better " says the little bear as Verity enters " Hello dear your a dungarees girl I believe!"
"Why yes " replies Verity
" What year? "
" Oh dear never mind, thank you NEXT!"
"What a funny little bear !" thinks Verity as she leaves the room.Sophie tells the little bear to stop being so rude or she'll put him on a bus back to his last home!
"At last!" cries the little bear as Belinda walks into the room , he quickly stands up
" Good afternoon " he says to Belinda " It's a pleasure to meet you "
He shakes hands with Belinda " My names Reuben and I am looking for a new owner and it could be you !" he says smugly " you are a 68 single fringe? "
" Why yes " replies Belinda impressed with Reuben's knowledge.
"Well " he starts to say " today's your lucky day, you can..."
A voice asks "What is going on here ? "
Belinda turns to see that Edward the Panda's arrived " This is Reuben Edward, he's come to live here and is picking his new little miss"
" Is he now " says Edward sternly " We'll see about that !" and he hurries over to the chair where he climbs up next to Reuben.
Reuben's not to happy to find a Panda in residence! Three times he'd tried to get rid of Steve's studio girl's Panda and each time he'd been saved and returned to her! No one seemed to realise that it was his destiny to belong to a Studio girl or Np !
" Well " says Edward staring Reuben in the eye " In this house the Little Misses or Mrs Mum decides which bear belongs to who, NOT the bear "
"Now look here Jedward !" says Reuben " I am one of bramber bears finest and therefore must belong to only the most refined of Sasha's "
Edward was still in shock at being called Jedward! so the little bear Reuben gets to continue " do you know there is no Studio doll or NP in this place! What sort of establishment are you running here?"
Edward takes TWO deep breathes before he speaks in a low and extremely menacing voice
"This establishment is of the finest quality to be found and should you require my boot up your backside to see you on your way I will be MORE than HAPPY to oblige"
Reuben realises he is in extreme danger and keeps quiet as Edward continues " Now I suggest you park your arse and wait until you little miss PICKS YOU"
and with that Edward turns and leaves the room.
Reuben finds himself all alone and parks his ...bottom back on the chair. ' Mm ' he thinks ' I'll have to watch that little Panda he looks a bit mean ' he sighs ' no studio ...no Np...he may have to set his sights lower....he could always spend his time following that single fringe girl what's her name about, then may be she'll pick him for her bear......suddenly he shudders what if a waif picks him! quickly he hurries off after that single fringe girl, now what was her name Yaminda? Jamima? Subinda? .....
I have to thank Steve for his lovely and unexpected birthday gift, you can see Steve he is going to fit right in, shame he got a bit spoiled at yours before he arrived :)
