Everyone disappeared into the undergrowth and followed Harry’s long green hosepipe as it continued to get fatter and fatter.
“Here’s the tap!” called Queenie at last and suddenly, Spencer the spanner, who’d heard all the commotion, appeared right beside her.
CLONK!! With one quick blow, the tap turned off and Harry’s fat body subsided.
“Oh…Thank you!” said Queenie, now more interested in Spencer than she was in Harry, “You’re so strong and so brave and so handsome.”
“Just doing my job,” smiled Spencer.
Harry bounced over and looped out of his knots. He wanted to play higgledy-piggled with Queenie…
But now she only had eyes for Spencer… leaving Harry feeling a bit of a drip.
Harry. Romance was obviously…. KNOT meant to be.
