“What a goallllllll!” exclaimed Judah.
Judah and his friends were playing football, when they heard a loud scream. They looked around to see what was going on and saw Walk-bout George grabbing Miss Veronica’s small, sparkling, gold bag. He ran off and poor Miss Veronica fell.
“Tief! Tief!” she screamed. “De man tief me bag!”
When Miss Veronica got up, she ran straight to the police station, while the children chased Walk-bout George.
The children ran after Walk-bout George to the nearby cricket field. They crouched behind a sprawling dumbs tree and waited. As soon as the police arrived, they pounced on Walk-bout George, pinning him to the ground. He was so surprised, he dropped the bag. Sergeant Jonathan, one of the policemen, grabbed Walk-bout George and cuffed him. As the police took Mr. George to the police car, Miss Veronica walked over to the five friends.
“Tanks fu me bag. Tek dis five dalla and get sudden fu drink!” she said, with a smile.
“Thank you, Miss Veronica,” replied Judah.
He then turned to friends to his tired friends and asked, “What are we going to get?”
“Tambran ice-pop, of course!” shouted the friends.
