The tramp gazed at the lion head. He heard the voice again:”Find the gate with the lion head. Look closely. It will bring you luck.”

Hardy had some issues with finding the right gate and lion. He found two without any sign of luck.

The one in front of him winked at him. He looked away and then back. Yes, it showed some movement. The mouth was slowly saying something. Hardy concentrated on the lion. He went closer.

” Put your hand in my mouth.”

He slowly reached, a strong hand pushed him forward. The next moment an arm went around his neck:

”Where are the diamonds? Tell me or….”

Hardy could not remember much. The arm let go and the police were all over the attacker. He felt something heavy hit his head.

Voices started calling: “Hardy, are you okay. Well done. We caught all of them.”

    Ineke, you are getting better and better at your writing. The lovely book of short stories you gave me when we met, might really be sought after in time! Well done! And congratulations on the new job. Working with children, as you know, is so tiring, but very satisfying!

      Thank you for your kind words. This year I made a book for writing class on all the dogs I can remember since 1952. Ending it with Trompie. Working with children is very rewarding but at moment my body tells my that I’ve been on my feet for at least 4 hours a day.

            OH that is so encouraging to hear. And yes, do take that nap. I guess that if you work close by, it will be a way to manage the physical strain whilst still enjoying the job and the kids. Kids always bring a smile to my face!

              I enjoined the three days. Very tired but I’ll get used to it. The school just behind the quilt shop and tea garden where we had the lovely scones and tea. About 10 minutes drive.

                Yes, I remember the quilt shop and beautiful scones. It is one of the nicest moments from my NZ trip. All the better because I got to meet my lovely blogger friend!! Just make sure you take plenty of Vitamin C as kids often like to share their germs around! I got quite sick when I worked with kids! And the girls at my work are often sick. I take mega dose of Vit c and have been okay of recent times.

                  Thanks I’ll get Vit C because some of the kids have runny noses and there is one coughing also. I agree that meeting with you is one of my high lights too.

    I guess putting his hand in the lion’s mouth did bring him luck……the luck of the bad people getting caught.
    Good story. 😃
