Faith with Grace and Bear

Today, I went on an adventure with my friend Grace and Bear. Bear knew a friend from back in his forest days named Duck. They ran into each other again across the pond, and Duck's gone into the sight-seeing business. He's started up his own operation where he carries people around London on his back, and he offered to give the three of us a tour.

Little did we know that there was a man in a red jacket was trying to sabotage duck's business!

As we were driving along London, we saw some great things! We caught a glimpse of Parliment, Westminster, and Big Ben. But then we saw a great big Ferris Wheel! Bear asked Duck "Duck, what's the huge Ferris wheel doing in London?"

Duck said, "Well that's the London Eye. She makes sure that all London visitors are safe as long as they stay within her sight."

Bear sat thoughtfully. "How does she keep you safe?"

"You see," Duck replied, "Big Ben and London Eye are in love, but they can't be together because of the river. Big Ben shows his love for her by chiming every hour, and by protecting the people that the Eye cares about."


"By chiming to get their attention."

"Oh..." said bear, giving me a quizzical look.

Our journey continued passed Charring Cross and over Trafalgar's Sq.

"And now to the water!" cried Duck.

Duck descended into the water and splashed us a little. "Duck!" the three of us teased. All of the sudden, we heared Big Ben's enourmous chime's. "What was that for?" Bear whimpered, "It's not a quarter time or the hour!"

Duck was suddenly alarmed. He was sinking lower than normal! He sunk so low that the emergency exit's only exit was to the river!

"What's that under Duck's wing?" asked Grace noticing Duck's uneveness. As soon as she did, a man in a red jacket started pulling out Duck's feathers!

"He's trying to thwart me! Quick! Roar like a lion!" We started roaring like lions (bear being the best of all) and all of a sudden, the Scotland Yard Lions appeared on the walls of the canal, terrifying the man in the red coat so much that he fell off of Duck and was caught up in a fisher's net by the London Water Patrol.

"Man! Glad that's over!" said Bear.

"Me, too," sighed Duck, shaking his head. "That guy's been after me for weeks. I'll see you in the court room," he shouted across the river. We finished just in time for Duck's next visitors to board. We said our good-byes and let him get on his way.

Grace's eyes were still closed with fright, but Bear soothed her. "You can open your eyes now, Grace. It's all okay."

And now the world knows of the beautiful London Eye and the adoring Big Ben.
