There was a collective slurp followed by a Whizz, Wang, Whooo and a rather worrying Urrrrr.
The utterer of the urrrrr attracted their attention, as he was usually the quieter of the four.
‘You seem troubled,’ said the Wang.
‘Disturbed?’ asked the Whizz
‘What it is?’ asked the Whooo
‘Have you seen them?’ asked the Urrrrr
‘Who?’ asked the Whizz
‘Them,’ replied the Urrrrr
‘What about them?’ asked the Whooo

‘Enough,’ said the Whizz, ‘we are visitors and we can’t upset them.’
‘Well we can’t blend in,’ said the Wang
‘Who’d want to?’ exclaimed the Urrrrr. ‘When’s the next ship home?’
‘Tuesday,’ said the Whizz….
A gloom settled upon them.
As the gloom settled comfortably around them they let out a collective slurp.
