"Please say you'll help us, Kion! Please, oh, please, oh, please!"
"It does now. He climbed up into our tree this morning. And he wants to eat us! So will you help us, Kion? Huh? Speak up!"
"The leopard is not staying in our tree!"
"Oh, we have to stay with you. Please?"
"Maybe that leopard wasn't so bad after all."
"Oh, good! I've been trying to get across the flood plains all day! Think I could hitch a ride to Ndefu Grove?"
"Aw! Thanks, Beshte."
"Oh. Then can you drop me off over by Ndefu Grove?"
"You sure you don't mind?"
"I'm sure it will be any minute."
"Ooh! I really hope Ma Tembo finds the water soon."
