We joined in with the crows victory celebrations, and congratulated the redbacks on a great game, and commiserated with them for their narrow defeat. They didn’t seem too disheartened, and all their team sportively clapped us off using all eight legs.
We changed back into our normal shapes once off the field, and headed over towards where we remembered Theold Gumtree had been. But as we drew nearer we came to a steep slope we couldn’t recall, and we had to break into a run it was such a decline. It was also more slippery than it looked, and soon we were sliding and skidding at an ever greater speed. We tried to stay on our feet as long as possible, but in the end all fell into each other and toppled down the muddy hill like a tangled ball.
We fell for what seemed like an age, and thought we might never stop, but in the end we did begin to slow down, and then Elle brought us to a standstill by grabbing Bonzo and me. Bonzo turned around to me from her right arm and declared: she’s got balls!
When we got up we saw we were back on the dust sandy road, and as we dusted ourselves off we saw there was just the old gum tree with a historical display where we thought Theold Gumtree had been.
