5. The Wabbit & Lapinette in the Lost Park

"What took you so long?" asked Lapinette, who had materialised back in the park some minutes before. "I've been waiting a while," she smiled. "I don't know," said the Wabbit and he checked his fur to make sure that everything was there. "I was stuck in some kind of time buffer and things appeared and whirled around and disappeared." The Wabbit paused as he tried to remember. "And I saw some wabbits I once knew, but as soon as I spoke to them, they vanished." he said. "You couldn't just have a normal trip for once!" exclaimed Lapinette. "And break with tradition?” replied the Wabbit and he chortled. "Don't you think there's something familiar about that tree trunk," asked Lapinette. "Spooky," said the Wabbit and he looked around, half expecting Lag, the prehistoric wabbit, to come cart-wheeling through. "The time portal must be around here somewhere," said the Wabbit and he looked to right and left. "Do you want to go back?" said Lapinette. "No, not really," said the Wabbit. "It was beautiful and interesting, but a little quiet for my liking." "You prefer the city," said Lapinette. "More cafes," said the Wabbit. "We could go back in time and open one," said Lapinette." "The Time Lag Cafe," laughed the Wabbit. "Temporal aperitivo please!" giggled Lapinette. "Of all the joints in all of Space and all of Time, she walks into this one," drawled the Wabbit. How they laughed as they hopped home but though they were to search many times for that park, they never found it again.
