It’s the middle of the night and the mumzels are busy gathering food and stuff for them to use. Cookie and Neo going to a residential area with many houses. They had heard that there was a neighborhood party of people with a lot of food with a lot of leftovers and they want to stock up on enough food for a Mumzel party at the end of this week.
It’s Qeeun lucia’s birthday and that’s why the Mumzels want to organize a big party for her.
Cookie has made a whole list of things they want and Neo is busy making a cart to take all the things with him, he made it from branches and the wheels he uses bottle caps he put everything together with ropes .
The moment Neo has finished with the cart, the two of them head for the neighborhood. very carefully they cross the road from the forest. luckily because it is night there are few cars on the road. Neo pushes the cart forward while Cookie sits quietly in the cart and points the way where she wants to collect the stuff.
Because cookie is more common in residential areas, so she knows best where the stuff is often.
She was also present at the people ’s neighborhood party . she had watched from the roof all day . look Neo says cookie , 3 houses further and there was the neighborhood party . there was a large table with many tasty things. Which we can use for our own party.
Neo has trouble pushing the cart as cookie isn’t the lightest of the bunch either.
“Cookie can you help me? “ Cookie looks at Neo in surprise . not actually she says .. but because you insist so I help you push . we’re almost there.
Look Neo here we have to enter the gate.
Neo and cooki carefully look under the fence . because you never know who knows there might be a cat or a dog.
They are often sweet animals, but some dogs are very watchful and start barking and some cats sometimes mistake us for Mice.
So it is not always safe to just enter a garden of Humans.
Especially not if they have those big spotlights that come on when something moves.
Cookie soon sees that the coast is clear and they go out into the garden together.
They leave the cart at the Gate .. look Neo, says Cookie do you see that table there?
All the good food was there this afternoon.
Silently the two mumzels sneak to the table and indeed there are all kinds of leftover food.
Neo finds a few cookie crumbs and peanuts and Cookie has found a piece of meat.
There are also a few half tomatoes. quickly Neo and Cookie grab as much as they can and put all the food on the cart. suddenly Neo also sees a very nice coin with a head on it..
The coin is heavy but very nice as a present for Qeeun Lucia , cookie can you help me ? asks Neo .. and Cookie arrives . first she puts the last tomatoes on the cart.
Neo is waiting with the coin at the Table and Cookie walks over to him.
Suddenly cookie stops and looks very anxiously at Neo.
Neo sees cookie and asks what’s going on? Why did you stop and look so weird..?
Neo look very carefully behind you..
Neo turns around very carefully and suddenly looks into 2 very big eyes ..
Behind him is a very large owl on a fence watching Neo .
Uuhhh Cookie what do I do now..? I can’t move anymore..
Come to me very carefully Neo .. ! says cookie..
I’ll keep an eye on the owl. While the owl is staring at the Mumzels with wide eyes .
Immediately that owl thinks we are Mice and before we know we have turned into an owl ball.
Neo very carefully walks back and holds the coin he had in his hands. Because we really don’t want to pass up the coin.
Step by step he comes closer Cookie ..
Just a little bit more Cookie says .. you are almost with me and when I immediately call YES the two of us quickly run to the gate. there I saw a place where we can hide.
Neo is almost there but before Cookie could say yes , the owl starts to move and flies right at the 2 Mumzels .
Neo and cookie are so startled that Neo drops the coin and together they run towards the Gate .
The owl comes closer and closer if Neo only manages to make it .. because cookie already had a small head start and sees the possibility to take shelter at the gate .
The owl sticks out its claws to grab Neo and almost has him.
Come run Neo! run ! shouts Cookie.. and Neo makes one last jump to duck under the Gate and at the same moment they hear a loud bang..
Terrified with fear and full of adrenaline, Neo and Cookie carefully watch what that bang was.
And they see the owl with stars above his head lying on the ground.
Would that stupid owl have flown into the fence ..?
We were lucky… Neo and Cookie quickly grab the self-made cart with stuff and run again
