    Bella said to her friend on the road, “What are you doing Silky?” Silky said on the busy road, “Just trying to avoid all this traffic, because my ducklings ran on the road with no warning!”
    “Wow they must be a handful to deal with because of all the safety,” Yelled Bella over the noisy and dangerous traffic. “We did not mean to, we were just having some adventures with Abbey, Penny and Troy, you know we are sisters and brothers,” quacked the youngest of all the ducklings who is Sam. As a big red Ferrari comes their way in the parking spots. “Argh we are going to die. Mummy what are we going to do?” yelled Abbey from the end closest to the Ferrari. When the Ferrari was coming faster the man in the car yelled, “Oi, what are you ducks doing on the road.” He yelled over the screech of the wheel stopping the car. He jumped out and he carried the ducks all home safe.

    “Yay we are alive,” quacked Penny. “I always would of protected you anyway so don’t worry, everything is all right.”

    “Hey Sir Ducsulot are you going home?”
    “Yes Duck Vader, it’s my night to do the dishes.”
    “How do you do the dishes with no thumbs?”
    “It’s hard but I like to challenge myself.”
    “How did you get the name Sir Ducksulot anyway?”
    “Well I’m a prince so that’s how I got it.”
    “Hey Sir Ducsulot I need a taxi home can you take me?”
    “No. What about your wings silly sausage.”
    “Oh yeah I forgot about those!”
    “Lets not talk on the road we might get hit!”
    “Great idea.”
    “So what are your kids names?”
    “Judy, Quacko ,Marla,Beakie and Quaskie as you might think Quacko and Quasi are twins.”
    “Bye Duck Vader see you next Quack!”

    “Come over here and stay on the safe side of the white saftey-line baby ducklings!”
    “NO! We want an adventure with Daddy duck!”
    “I will say this ONE more time: Stay on the safe side of the Safety white line or you will be hit!”
    “Aoooh. OK..”
    “Good on you little Ducklings – come to me now”.
    So Eeeky, Quacky, Peeky waddled after Mother Duck all the way home along with Papa Duck.
    Their adventure was a splash in the pond on a Banana Boat Ride!

      “Hey Edna, why did the duck cross the road?” said Harry.

      “Because we need to go shopping,” groaned Edna as they waddled across the road with their ducklings.

      “No, to get to the other side, as there is a police car following us,” whispered Harry afraid of the policeman.

      “Huh, where? Oh no, save my ducklings,” panicked Edna.

      “Be quiet and act normal Edna. Don’t turn around,” explained Harry as he tried to round the ducklings together.

      “Oops too late,” said Edna, as the siren went weeeooooweeeooo and the policeman got out of the car and shouted, “Y’all ain’t getting dose wings ip.”

      “I have no idea what he just said but I guess we won’t be crossing the road to go shopping after all,” sighed Edna.

    Mum duck: “Come on you four listen to your father.”
    Baby duck: “Do we have to go any further? My small webbed feet are killing me.”
    1 Baby duck: “Can’t we just sleep on the grass for the night?”
    Dad duck: “Well I suppose it wouldn’t hurt to sleep on the grass for one night, any way my feet are killing me too!”

    “Going home Gilbert?”
    “Yep, are you?”
    “No, just taking the ducklings out for a walk.”
    “I wish I had ducklings”
    “You know it’s hard work Susan.”
    “But it’s so boring at home nothing to do, no one to talk and play with.”
    “Straight line duckling, straight line, told you it’s hard work.”
    “Okay I get how it’s hard to have ducklings.”

    The three little Ducks said, “What are these cars doing around us?” The Dad Duck said,”I don’t know.” The Mum Duck said, “I don’t know too.” The little Ducks said, “We are scared that the cars are going to run us over.” And they ran away. The Mum and Dad duck followed them and said, “Where are you going?” the little Ducks said, “Somewhere safer.”

    “Hey Pluck-a-Duck, do you think we have caused enough trouble for the morning?” said Lucky Duck.

    “No, I think we should continue and stop the afternoon traffic also,” said Pluck-a-Duck. The ducklings were quite amused about how silly their mum and dad were, until…..
    Pluck-a-Duck quaked at the top of his beak, “Everyone hurry and waddle as fast as you can to the nearest barnyard, the police are on our tails”. They all waddled as fast as they could, dodging all the traffic and the police officers.

    “Great escape team, we have even made it onto tonight’s news,” said Lucky Duck.

    Pluck-a-Duck replies in a cheeky voice, “Let’s say we do this all over again tomorrow……..”

    “Get off the road love otherwise you and the ducklings might get hurt,” exclaimed Mr Duck.

    “Well darling this police car is nicely waiting behind us,” softly said Mrs Duck.

    “YES but it can’t wait forever,” yelled Mr Duck over the loud and noisy traffic.

    “Hey mum, daddy is right we might get run over,” yelled Chirpy.

    “Quick we all need to get off the road before we get squashed by a car. We have to get back to the river and quick,” said mother duck. “Come on ducklings,” she said.
    The Father duck said, “We need to get back to the river so we can eat, I am starving and I am sure the rest of you are as well. I hope there are some little kids there ready to feed us some bread!”

    ”Henrietta, I’ve told you many times you need to walk on this side of the white-line. Can’t you see that you’ve caused a traffic jam?”

    ”Golly gosh Cyril, you exaggerate everything. There’s no traffic jam, the cars are just admiring our beautiful ducklings.”

    “Lets just keep walking off the road, down the hill, across the path and over to the lake, so we can swim eat and relax.”
