HELOISE

“Why are we stopping?”  Heloise questioned.

“Heloise!  Did you happen to notice the motor cut off?”  Brian said in disgust as he got out of the truck.

“Oh great! That’s all we need, water everywhere.”  he shirked.

“Is there a leak?”

“Yes, Queen of the obvious, there is a leak.”

“How did that happen?”  Heloise asked.

“I guess the water just decided to leave the radiator, Heloise!”

“But, we have to get to the bank before they close. Let’s take a bus.”

“Heloise, the last bus has gone.  We can borrow one of Jim’s cars from the garage.  At least we can walk there!”

“Jim said you can have some of his fruit while you wait for me to bring the car around here.”

“What kind of fruit?”  I’m starving, she said.

“You can have apple or apple!”

“Very funny!  I guess I’ll take apple.”

“Hurry up Heloise, the bank’s going to close soon and we need to cash this check.”

“I’m trying, I’m trying.  It’s hard to get in this so called…car.  If it were any smaller it would be a fruit crate on wheels!”

“Don’t complain.  It’s free. “

“That’s good, I like free.”

“I know you do, now let’s go get this check cashed.”

“Yes, your Majesty!”
