Just over a week ago Henry went to visit Fritz.
They were both very excited and Fritz was waiting for Henry on the doorstep outside his home.
Hi Henry, Fritz says as he holds out his hand
Hi Fritz, Henry replies. It is so good to be here, we have had a long car journey.
Come through Henry and lets go outside. Fritz takes Henry through the house and outside to the garden.
So what would you like to do? Fritz asks Henry.
I don't mind Henry replies shyly.
Shall we just hang around together for a little while then, while we decide what to do? Fritz asks.
Sounds like a good idea to me replies Henry. Oh look here comes Rory.
Hi guys, what are you up to? Rory asks.
Just hanging around the boys reply
They start chatting together...
Look here comes Orlando, Rory says.
Orlando wanders over... Hey guys, I thought you'd have the bike out by now
The boys go and get the bike and then spend their time doing what boys do best...inspecting it, talking over the pros and cons, pointing out various things, improvements, etc...
So dudes, whose going to ride first? Orlando asks
Henry! They all chorus, knowing how much Henry wants a bike of his own.
Henry tries the bike out for size.
Hey look at me, I want a bike JUST like this one! It is cool!
Henry rides off on it, completes a circuit and arrives back just as Rory wanders over.
Are you STILL on the bike Henry? Surely it must be my turn now? Rory asks.
Reluctantly Henry gets off the bike and gives Rory a turn.
Be careful Rory Henry calls as Rory rides off.
I will replies Rory...
What has happened here? Running repairs?
It's okay, it was just the chain come off. Rory reassures the boys as he fixes the bike. Orlando doesn't look quite so sure... Fritz is worried about his bike so has a go to test it out.
He does a couple of circuits on his bike and some tricks with Orlando and Henry looking on. Rory seems to have disappeared, perhaps worried in case the bike hasn't been fixed.
Phew! Tis cool lads, everything's okay. Fritz tells the lads.
A little while later Henry is in his element!
A motorbike! Wait until Mum sees me on this Henry thinks to himself....well actually maybe not on second thoughts, she would probably have a fit!
Hey there Henry, Caleb calls as he wanders over. Choice bike? Is it yours?
No, it is Fritz's bike. Isn't it just the best? Henry replies.
Rory wanders over to see Henry on the bike and starts chatting to Caleb as well.
Do you think Mum will get us one of these? He asks
You gotta be joking Caleb says If MY Mum won't let me have one, you can be pretty sure YOUR Mum definitely won't let you have one!
Yeah such a shame, but still it is fun to ride while we are here. Fritz is pretty relaxed about the whole thing, you'd think he'd want to hang around to make sure his bike is okay. Henry comments.
I think he has gone to have some scones with jam and cream! Rory tells the boys. I forgot that is why I'd come over, to tell you that afternoon tea is ready.
Yum, Yum! The boys cheer together Kendal's Scones Super Delicious!
