The importance of plot development



'I'm sure it is!' mooed Norma. 'It's the casket that you found when you fell off the cliff, that we decided to return to its rightful owner, so we could claim the reward, that was later stolen from us by the pirates, that they've carried with them since, but have now obviously, inadvertently, dropped, while fleeing with all of their stolen pointy swords.'

'..........Well done!' said Horace.

'Thanks,' gasped Norma.

'.....................So what now?' 

'I think you'd better recover it.'

Horace took a closer look at the casket.

'The bush looks a bit thorny,' he said.

'Does it?' replied Norma.

'Do you have any hoof mittens?'

'Not on me.'

'..............................................Could you knit me some?'

'I don't think we have time right now,' said Norma. 'I'm sure if you're quick.'

So Horace was.

'And now you could bring it up here,' suggested Norma.

So Horace did.

And then they waited.

'.....................................Who are we waiting for?' whispered Horace.

'Not sure?' replied Norma.

But it was Camille.......................and she arrived after a few minutes.

'Mon crikey!' she exclaimed upon seeing the casket.

'Is it yours?' asked Norma.

'I think,' replied Camille, 'it probably is!'
