They are helping mum put away the backdrop for a photo shoot she's just done.
" I cannot believe all this rain we are having!" says Jocelyn
" I know " replies Cornelia " I think it came back with us from Lady K's , we never have such cold rain down here in September!"
"Come on we'd better move this map before Mum calls us!"
They start to tell him all about their time at Lady K's.
They are still telling him as they finish!
" Yes " Jocelyn says " Lady K had the most beautiful Rocking horse I got to ride it!"
" Really " say Cornelia " Where was I ! I did not get a ride "
" You were out watching Mum and Dad take photo's"
" Oh No I would have loved a ride on a rocking horse !" says Cornelia
"Well why don't you have a ride on ours then " says Zak
" Dah! We don't have a rocking horse " says Cornelia
" Just you wait here " says Zak going off.
Zak returns dragging a small wooden rocking horse!
The girls are stunned .
" Where did you get him? " asks Jocelyn walking over.
"Mum's got lots of things all over the place, that's why she wants a studio to keep them all in!" Zak tells them while Jocelyn admires the horse
" Oh you are so sweet " she says looking him over " I cannot believe we have not had you to play with before!"
Zak helps Jocelyn on to the horse to have a ride.
" Oh he is just perfect " laughs Jocelyn " I loved Auntie Kendal's but he was very very big and did worry I might fall "
" Whose next ? " asks Jocelyn getting ready to get down
" Me " says Cornelia excitedly holding up her hand " My turn next "
Zak does not mind, Toby and him have been playing with the horse for months.
" Oh this is so great " cries Cornelia rocking back and forth " I love it! Giddy up !"
"We need to give him a name " says Jocelyn
" Yes " cries Cornelia rocking quickly " Reuben !"
"Reuben ! " cry the others in surprise
" Not the horse silly " says Cornelia " Reuben !"
Looking over the others see Reuben walking past.
" Back are you !" calls Zak " Hattie's been looking for you "
" Your in big trouble " says Zak moving round the horse to watch the little bear go past.
" Don't bother me boy! I have decisions to make !" says Reuben over his shoulder
"Yes well one of them had better be what you are going to tell Hattie about stowing away to see lady K's NPs" says Zak " She going to give you a right telling off !"
Reuben continues walking, thinking " She's got to find me first!" and he hurries away....
