Nell: What a charming owl.
Me: Yes. He seemed nice. Where is Dave?
Nell: Out checking the perimeters.
Me: What does that mean?
Nell: I have no idea, but Robin asked him to.
Me: Is a robin involved now?
Nell: No. Robin Hoot our owl advisor.
Me: Oh, is that his name?
Nell: Yes. I’m glad we decided to tell him the truth. We are far stronger working together.
Me: So what happened?
Nell: Apparently two of the younger owls, Tawny Tim and Barney, were out flying and noticed the hats. They reported back to HQ and Robin was sent to investigate.
Me: So where do we go from here?
Nell: Well, fortunately for us, the owls can’t stand the Beefies either, so as soon as they heard what was happening they offered to help.
Me: What did the Beefies do to them?
Nell: Stephen Seagull made disparaging remarks about their boss. A big mistake. You do not want to get on the wrong side of an owl and definitely not that one.
Me: Who is the boss then?
Nell: Owl Pacino. You must have heard of him.
Me: The name certainly rings a bell.
Nell: Anyway, Robin says it’s not a problem at all and in return for some of Poppy’s scones he can include us in their patrol.
Me: So owl’s well that ends well.
