"This is much better than travelling by motor bike " says Mossy
" I suggest you keep quiet after what you did to my lovely new motor " grumbles Edward from the front seat.
"If you don't be quiet you WILL be sleeping in a hedge tonight!" mutter's Edward crossly.
"Now you will need to turn left at the end of the drive Percy " says Edward
"Why does Percy get to drive!" moan's Mossy from the back seat
"Why have you got the letter with you" mocks Percy
"This FAN letter " says Mossy smugly " is very important too important to just leave lying about! and anyway I am sure Lady Kendal would like to see it !"
"It's very good of you to take a turn at the driving Percy " says Edward
" My pleasure " replies Percy " I often used to drive for my previous family "
" I often used to drive for my previous family " mutters Mossy from the back seat annoyed that if he cannot drive He should at least be allowed to sit in front!
Getting to the end of the drive Percy indicates left and begins to pull out.
There's a slight bump over the paving and a groan comes from the back!
"You can always stay behind !" says Edward to Mossy
"What! I never said a word!"
"Then stop groaning. You are NOT driving and that is final!"
Mossy holds tightly to his fan letter while looking daggers at the back of Edwards head!
Finally out in the road, the bears all cheer up excited to be on their way.
"We should make good time to be at Lady Kendal's for lunch tomorrow " says Edward
They head off down the hill to the main road.
Unknown to them there is a stowaway on board
" I'm coming Lady K, I'm coming " whispers Reuben " Have your NP girls ready If I survive this bumpy badly driven journey I'm sure one of your girls will be my prefect little Miss "
He settles down to try and get some sleep before Edward and crew discover him tonight when they stop to rest..He is sure Edward will make him sleep in the hedge!
