Most often, when an emergency alarm goes off, its because something bad or dangerous has happened.
But when the POSARONA alarm goes off and the whisper reaches the ears of Poppy, Saffron, Rose and Nana, it does NOT mean that anything bad or dangerous has happened.
When the POSARONA whisper is sent out by Marigold, it means that its time for Poppy and Saffron and Nana and Rose to take a holiday together. Not just any holiday. A Helpful Holiday.
When Nana and the Girls set out on a PoSaRoNa, they have 8 things to do before their PoSaRoNa is over.
These are the 8 things they need to do on a POSARONA.
Do something OUTRAGEOUS.
Do something very SENSIBLE.
Do something AWESOME.
Do something REMARKABLE
Be very OBSERVANT and notice something other Beings haven’t noticed.
Fill a NEED.
Do something AMAZING.
When they are on a POSARONA, they bring their Posarona Bags with them. Each bag has different things in it and you can be sure there’s a good deal of magic in there. Marigold has sent the whisper out and the four of them are on Nana’s Tower rooftop and ready to fly!
The POSARONAs can change into anything they want. They can travel in lots of different ways.
But they always start by FLYING from the top of the Tower.
They always start by laughing because they LOVE getting away together – just the four of them.
They always start by singing. It’s a happy time for a helpful holiday.
They never know how long a POSARONA will take because some jobs are very quick and others are longer. Some Good Deeds are just little ones and some are VERY big.
The first thing the POSARONAs came across was a little disturbance of the Peace. They were just flying down low over the Creek when they saw Lappy Rabbit and Terence Toad at the Log Bridge. Both were dressed in their best Coffee at Poppy’s Place Clothes and they were both heading in the same direction. They are usually very good friends so it was a surprise to hear them YELLING.
It was even more of a surprise to see them pushing and shoving.
It was actually a SHOCK to see Terence use his walking stick to hurtle Lappy into the water.
It was a bigger shock to see Terence sitting on the log and smiling while Lappy tried to swim. Rabbits are not the BEST swimmers in Triflora.
The POSARONA swooped down and set to work to bring Peace.
First of all they pulled Lappy out of the water and sat him down on the Log Bridge beside Terence. Its not easy to bring peace to a Dead Bunny.
Then the POSARONA went into action. It was TIME TO BRING PEACE.
POPPY did the Detective work. She asked question after question till she found out what had REALLY been happening. It turned out that Lappy had been teasing Terence about living half of his life in the water. Lappy had been CROAKING at Terence. Now, Terence is not at all ashamed of being amphibious. It’s a wonderful thing to be. But he did not like being teased so he shoved Lappy into the water and then said:
Very nasty indeed.
ROSE used her dancing and singing to create a peaceful atmosphere. The 2 PeaceBreakers looked rather surprised when she began dancing right there on the water and along the log but it certainly stopped their complaining. They had never seen anything like it.
SAFFRON waited till they were calm and then she climbed onto the log and sat right in the middle of the Rabbit and the Frog and had a good talk with them in Bunny Speak and Frog Croak. Soon, all three of them were holding hands and things were peaceful again.
NANA was very pleased with her girls. They were excellent PEACE BRINGERS. But just to make sure that it would be a Lasting Peace, she turned and look straight at Lappy and straight at Terence – and THEN – SHE RAISED HER LEFT EYEBROW and gave them THE LOOK.
Poppy had sent a message back to her Place as soon as she had finished asking questions. Poppy’s People are in most place in Triflora and the message passed back as quickly as a rabbit can fall into a creek. Before long a little cart came along and Lappy and Terence were given a lift all the way to the Village.
Its one thing to Bring Peace and another thing to Keep the Peace.
Cherie, the White Horse and Sweet Selina would keep an eye on these two rascals for a day or two.
The POSARONA had completed the first one of their Missions. They all smiled and hugged and clapped hands and said TEAMWORK!
