Following on from the last post, here are the three story endings (which adventure did YOU choose?): OPTION 1: Pupster chases a snake Okay I admit it - it wasn't my brainiest idea.

Hard ground everywhere. No, not everywhere, but it took so long to get to where it was soft underfoot and smelt like the Earth. Even… Continue reading City Visit
