It had been a long journey and the Wabbit was rather tired. He
had checked in at special hotel run by members of an Order sympathetic to the
aspirations of rabbits and he had even received a special rabbit discount. So leaving
his small bag for the porter, he hopped through the cloisters. The Wabbit felt a sense of peace descend on his fur. The
last mission had, for some reason, left him exhausted so the Wabbit looked forward to a fortnight of complete rest.
Lovely Lapinette had been most specific on this matter. "Definitely no adventures!" she had instructed. "Check," the Wabbit remembered
replying. "And no thinking of adventures," she
had added with a raised paw. "Check!" The Wabbit
had responded with vigour. "No carrying adventure paraphernalia in your fur!" Lapinette had prodded him in the ribs and as
the Wabbit said "Check," several items had fallen on the ground, including an
automatic, a screwdriver kit, a roll of duct tape and a small emergency coffee
pot. The Wabbit recalled Lapinette saying, "You can hang on to the coffee pot," and he felt under his fur to make sure it was still there. "A holiday is not an
excuse to be stressed!" Lapinette had hopped up and down waving her paws
around. "And you’re not allowed to have a watch!" The Wabbit grinned because he
knew there were so many clocks in the street that he didn’t need one. "Checkedy
check check check," he had cried and loped off.
