“I’m going to have to start over, Bettie,” exclaimed an all wet Buster. “I got stuck in that rock down there under the bridge before.”
“I couldn’t see you. I thought you floated all the way down to the falls. Without me!”
“Nah, I wouldn’t do that.”
“You’re such a *bad* little man, hehe.” Buster’s cheeks turned slightly red. He rezzed the inner tube again just off the tiny island on the property of the Moai Shinto shrine and hopped in.
Soon: “Ahhh! Help Tonshi. I mean Bettie. It’s happening again. I’m *drowning*!”
Turns out this wouldn’t be the day they floated all the way down to the falls and entered the Lapara underground the secret way. They’d try again Wednesday.
