Rick, Danus and Moses had followed Sun into the jungle. They had to slow down when they noticed Moses was coming along but they soon picked up their pace. No one noticed they were missing for Jake hadn’t calmed down yet.
“I want to know who did it if not you Mesa. The last time, you scribbled in my maths book. Would you deny that as well?
Now Mesa had a short temper and when angry, his face turned all
puffy and you could literally see the smoke in his nostrils if you were close enough. He was quite hungry, and this made him angrier.
“I already told you before,I didn’t throw the banana and I’m not a 5year old to be scribbling in your book!”
He stormed off to the room with Toro on his heels. The remaining boys ran off to play before Jake remembered they were there. The girls stood at a corner,analyzing the mess.
“Boys are always rowdy! I wonder how ma handles them” Kanya said
“When I grow up and have children, I want only girls”
Marilyn laughed, “it’s quite rare to see a family with only girls. Let’s start cleaning after them as always. I wish They learned to be more tidy.”
‘Well I still want that rare family with a good husband and three girls ” Britney concluded.
It was at this not so good a time that Jenna came to visit. Jake was sitting on the front steps, looking miserable. He knew he’d get a proper scolding when ma got back. He muttered a “good day ma’am” as she went in. Jenna wasn’t in the least prepared for the sight she was about to see;eggs and gravy on the walls,mashed biscuits,more eggs, a substantial amount of water on the floor and the girls trying to clean the place.
“Good God!” She exclaimed startling the girls who hadn’t noticed her. “Where’s ma and Rick and the other boys? ”
“Ma’s gone to the post office and i think the boys are playing outside” Britney answered.
“Marilyn, what exactly happened here?”
“Someone threw half a banana on Jake’s face while he was talking. He thought it was Mesa and threw a biscuit at him. Angry,Mesa threw his plate of food which landed on the wall. That’s how it started ”
“I see they’ve been very naughty. Call me all the boys now” Jenna said. She somehow trusted Rick had nothing to do with it, but what would she do with them especially now ma was away?
In a few minutes, running to meet her were the twins,Wheeze,the girls and Jake. They hadn’t seen Danus, Rick,Moses,Mesa and Toro. They weren’t in the house. Extremely worried, Jenna ordered them to stay put till she came back, she was going to meet ma at the post office.
Meanwhile Rick,Danus and Moses had finally caught up with Sun the monkey. What did he want to show them? Where were Mesa and Toro? Did they change plans? What did ma do to Jake when she got back?
