"That is the biggest diamond
I have ever seen!" exclaimed Cricket. "There are so many beautiful
"Which one do you like best?"
asked Patrick, trying not to sound too curious.
"Gosh, she's not going to make
this easy," thought Patrick.
"We better catch up with Henry
and Molly," said Patrick. "See if you can find them in the tires,
I'll be right there,"
Patrick rehearsed everything
in his mind over and over.
"I hope she feels the same way
I do," said Patrick. "I'd jump through hoops for Cricket, I love
her so much."
He thought about the first night
he met her as a little stow-away in the back of the Wigglebus.
He thought of all that they had
been through since they hid her under a towel from the uprights.
He thought about the first time
they went to court.
"I am sooo nervous," he thought.
Next, he heard Henry's voice
calling to them. "Patrick, Cricket, hurry! It's time to end
"Oh dear," thought Patrick.
"If I don't ask her now, I will have to wait for Book 3. I HAVE to
ask her now!"
Meanwhile, back at the tire bay,
Wiggle was finishing up with her fitting. "These feel wonderful!"
she told the guys! I feel like I could drive 100,000 miles now!
Four new tires! My friends will never believe it!"
"You deserve it Wiggle," said
Henry and Molly arriving back at the bay. "What a wonderful way to
end Book 2. You are all ready for your next exciting adventures!"
"Do we have to end Book 2 so
soon?" asked Molly. "There have been so many wonderful adventures
for Cricket and me."
"Yes, we have to end Book 2 now,"
said Henry hurriedly. "We are on page 50. Who ever heard of
going past page 50?"
"Are we really at the end of
Book 2?" they asked. "We better wish you luck, and if anything ever happens
to these tires, you come right back, ok?" said the guys.
Henry and Molly thanked everyone
for their hard work.
"Looks like we are finished here,
and ready for our next adventures!" said Henry.
With that, the guys took Wiggle
down from her lift and waved good bye as they closed the shop.
"It's time for the end," said
Henry. "Where is Patrick? Where is Cricket? It's not
like them to miss something this impawtant!"
"Do you think this is romantic
Cricket?" asked Patrick.
"Of course it is romantic," said
Cricket. "It is just the two of us, you and me."
"Is something wrong?" asked Cricket
"I'm going to POP!" confessed
"Pop what?" asked Cricket.
"I'm going to pop the question!"
Concentrating hard to get the
right words, Patrick bent down on one knee, took out the biggest ring they
had in the whole store, and looked at Cricket with his big brown eyes.
"Cricket, will you marry me?"
Before Cricket had the chance
to believe her ears, the Wigglebus gang had reached the bottom of the page.
In fact, they had reached the end of Book Two.
"But wait!" Patrick said in a
panic. "I need to know her answer!"
What do you think Cricket will
If YOU think that waiting to
find out is difficult, imagine what poor Patrick is going through!
THE END, BOOK TWO
