Ms. Maggie would not take “no” for an answer. She handed Mr. Green, the grocery mouse, the three pine nuts she carried in a cart on wheels she used for her groceries. “No, Mr. Green. These are worth at least two grapes. And you offer me just one?” Ms. Maggie shook her head with a thin smile spread across her face. “Ms. Maggie. Please, if I’ve told you once, I’ve told you a hundred times. A pine nut is worth no more than half a grape. I’ll give you one and half grapes for all three.”

...nut is worth no more than half a grape I'll give you one and a half grapes forall three Miss Maggie, didn't say anything forsuch a small elderly mouse. She was also very solid in the way she stood. She knew what she wanted and what wasright and she didn't mind waiting. You are a shrewd woman, Mister Greensaid no mister green, but I do have a cousinwho is a shrew. What a lovely lady I should have her over for tea some time.Would you like to meet her Miss Maggie said all of this withoutonce blinking an eyelash, a pine nut still in her hand, extended towardsMister Green Mister, green broke out laughing? Oh No, Miss Maggie. I don'twant to meet your cousin here, two grapes for three pine nuts. You drive ahard bargain. He grabbed the pine nuts from the cartand loaded the grapes, not a hard bargain. Just a proper one. The two older mites stood there in themarket in the centre of the Tower village laughing, as they had athousand times before. Mister Green was always expecting amore profitable trade and Miss Maggie never gave in to the pressure to go anyless than she was willing and just like every time before theyended as friends say. Have you seen Hansa to day askedMister Green as Miss Maggie began to leave? Has He not been here? No, I was expecting him a bit ago. Heand dash were looking for some scraps of paper. I figured he'd be back by now Miss Maggie scrunched up her eyebrowshum. He must be having a challenging...

...time finding it then I'll. Let him knowyou're looking for him. When I see him thanks, Miss Maggie Good Day to yougood day to you too, Mister Green, just as Miss Maggie was opening herfront door. A few minutes later Hansa and dash arrived at Hans's door. What is that smell asked Miss Maggie a dash appointed at Hansa Him Hansa was covered from head to tail ina very strong smelling, blue goop. It smells like mint tea said: MissMaggie Hansa wiped his eyes a little, so hecould see more. Clearly I wish it was dash could not contain her laughter.She tilted her head to the side and just giggled Hansa was looking for somepaper for Mister Green. Well, we found it no problem. There is always somenear the cafe Nellie the cat had a stack of it waiting for Hansa when wegot there. We told her yesterday that we might be looking for some, so shefound some for us. Miss Maggie, looked confused. then. Howare you covered in toothpaste, said Hans with a Sigh Dashtook over the story, Nellie asked for a help in exchange forthe papers, there is a tuna fish canned deep in the trash pin that I can't seemto get if you'd be willing to retrieve it. For me, the paper is yours, saidNellie you mean you want us to fish for thetuna fish asked Dash. GIGGLING Nellie didn't get the joke. Yes, shesaid in a very flat voice. That's exactly what I'd like o Kay said Dash.

What side of the bend is? The tuna canin asked Hansa Nellie leaped to the edge of the bedand pointed with her front right, paw, it's just there. I tried to get itmyself, but I kept getting my legs duck. I really appreciate the help Hansa looked at Dash. It will take bothof us. I can't lift a Tunicam by myself dash thought for a moment. What, if wehoisted it out with our ribbons Nellie then spoke up. Oh, I can get itout of the bin once the two of you get it on top Hans had then climbed to the edge ofthe bed. In the same way, he had so many times before, using the locks and levers on the sideas a sort of staircase he carefully teetered on to the thin ledge dash wasright behind him. You go first said Hansa me. Why me justjump you've, never been scared before Hansa raised both his eyebrows scared.I'm not scared. I just don't want to go first, it's really full to day plus. Doyou know that little tingle at the tip of your tail, when you're not sure ofsomething? Yes, I get that too Hansa lifted his tail towards dash thetip of it was throbbing. Well, mine isn't tangling it's exploding. I feel like something bad's going tohappen. If I jump in dash understood, why don't I lower you down, then we'vedone it before Hansa thought for a moment, then hepulled the bit of ribbon from a scavenging pack. That sounds good here. He handed her. The Ribbon Nellie called up to the two mice fromthe ground is everything all right. She...

...said: Oh everything's, fine, justworking out the tingles, that's all right, Hansa said Dash. She gave Hansa a little slap on theback Whoa Whoa, I'm falling in yelled Hansa as he lost his footing onthe thin edge of the bin. He teetered back and forth standing on one footwith the other foot up in the air for balance. Both arms were thrust to thesides and his tail pointed straight up Dash. Could it stop laughing you look like flicker doing ballet. Shesaid, Hansa didn't laugh, fearing any sort ofmovement would cause him to fall in just carefully tossed me the end of theribbon. He said Dash edged a little closer to Hansathan taking one end of the ribbon. She tied it to the Red Sash she always worearound her waist. Taking the other end, she threw it to Hansa the ribbon missed his hand by an inchwhich, to a mouse is a considerable gap. Try again said Anza again and again dashed through the endof the ribbon, trying to hit Hans's hand exactly Hansa stood as still as astatue the entire time. However, each time the ribbon missed him by a little. Finally, as she threw the ribbon forthe last time, it just touched his finger tips, Hansa leaned forward and grabbed holdof the ribbon clenching it tightly with his fist. Suddenly his feet slipped from the edgeof the men and he fell forward. Oh No, he yelled out still clenching theribbon in his hand when the ribbon became tight, it pulleddash from the waist in after Hansa, together e, they fell into the bin.

Hansa asked Ash. As she sat up. Shelanded softly on the outside of a half eaten Banana Hansa. Didn't reply Hans ashe yelled out, but still no reply. All of a sudden, she felt a tug on theribbon still tied to her waist. The line went tight grabbing hold of it. She gave it alittle tug and then let it go. It went tight again. Then she felt atug from the other side. Nellie quick help. She yelled out Nellie leaped to the edge of the Ben.What is it she asked? Hans is buried under this pile of trashhelp me get him out. Nellie jumped down next a dash. The twobegan to quickly throw chunks of food empty, wrappers and pieces of plasticout of the way. Each time they moved, however, Dashfelt pulled further and further down into the pile herself Hansa. Can youhear me asked Dash instead of a sound, she receivedanother pull on the stretched ribbon. I think he's okay. After moving an apple core, a piece ofhalf eaten pie and a tin can dash and Nellie came face to face with Hansa. The only problem was Hansa could notsee them his eyes and the entire rest of hisbody was covered in sticky blue tooth paste, dash reached out with part of theribbon and wiped the toothpaste from Hans's eyes. He very carefully openedone eyelid. He tried to open the other. It was still sealed shut when he reached up to wipe it himself.He instead wiped a much larger GLOB of tooth paste right across his eyes.Again,...

...oh Hansa said Dash with a hint of bothsadness and humour in her voice. Once again, she wiped both his eyes andhe was able to see. Then she wiped off his mouth to allowhim to speak thanks dash now that he could both see Anne speakdash led out a tremendous laugh. The sight of her best friend covered inminty toothpaste was just too much to contain a hem. Are you finished laughing at meyet asked Hanza almost said Dash, who let out one moreenormous laughed. Okay, I'm finished good. Now. Can you please help me getout of here? Nellie lay down on her stomach andreached one of her paws in towards Hanza Hansa grasped the tip of one ofher long claws and held tightly all the while Dash held on to her side of theribbon. All right Nelly, I'm going to count tothree on three: let's pull with all we have ready ready, said Nelly Dash called out loud one, two, three, the two ladies pulled and pulled untilHans appealed away from the tooth paste bottle to which he was stuck. Heclimbed a little mound created from moving all the trash, just as he reached the others. Hetripped and fell forward. He was stuck face to face to a paperwrapper. Can Ye please pull me off. He mumbled dash, peeled the wrapper from his face.Thanks, said: Hansa, all right, sticky fingers, don't moveNellie you climb back on the ledge, we're going to have to hoist captaintooth paste out of the BIN before he...

...gets stuck to anything else. Nellie followed dashes directions andleaped back up to the Ledge of the Trashbin Hanza asked Nellie as she grabbed holdof the ribbon with her paw. Yes, what is it Nellie responded? Hanza? Could you take one step to your left? Hansa did what she asked andimmediately was stuck to a tin. Can Perfect, that's the tunic an you weregoing after for me. By now dash had climbed on to the LAD,with Nellie all right, Hansa, I'm going to leapdown and you'll come hoist it out, like we've done before only it'll be a little different thistime, if you touch the edge of the bin you're going to stick to it, and sojust at the last moment before you reach the top Nellie is going to grabhold of you. Don't worry she's going to hold the ribbon in her mouth, so wrapit around you a little then she'll jump down and we can get you home andcleaned up whatever you say, followed Hanza. Hewrapped the ribbon around him a little. He was challenging as the ribbon keptsticking to his sides, but he got the job done very carefully. Dash descended theoutside of the Bin Hansa lifted into the air and just asDash had explained, Nellie grabbed hold of the ribbon before Hansa. Stuck tothe side she put the ribbon in her mouth, don't worry Hansa, I don't eat mice,I'm a vegetarian said Nellie. Really. Why do you need the tuna? Canthen I'll show you when we get down replied Nelly Hansa hung from Nellie's mouth like alimp piece of stream, suddenly Nellie leaped from the edge ofthe bend and landed softly on the...

...ground below she gently set Hans Down, dash unwrapped the ribbon from bothhers and Hans's waists. What will you do now asked Nellie? Well, if I can get him home withoutgetting stuck to the cobblestones, the double doors or the rope leading up tothe passageway, I think you'll be fine. We can clean him up at his house. Hansa tried to smile, but couldn't, asthe tooth pace was beginning to harden around his mouth, Durch said Hansa. My Morse is hardening dash. Of course. Let out another laughfrom deep in her belly. Wait petter go nelly. Can I come and get the paperfrom you later? Don't you want to know what I use theTUNIC can for she asked Dash nodded. Of course. What is it for? Nellie walked away from the two micetowards the space between the trash men and a cafe wall. A moment later she returned with adifferent tuna, can hanging from her mouth when she set it down. The two micediscovered it was full of bright and shiny stones. Each one was a differentcolor of the rainbow I collect rocks Nellie said with asmile. Then she took one in her paw, a brightgreen one and stuck it to Hansa's, sticky, stomach and every one laughed Miss Maggie interrupted Dash's story.So that's why you smell like mint hanse nodded, though only a little asmuch of the tooth paste had hardened. What will you do now asked Miss Maggie? I was thinking we could stand him up inthe market. Place, maybe put a candle in his hands to light the way forothers at night,...
