Narrator: "In the summer, the workcrews cut the long grass along the roads, raking it up for heaps to dry in the sun.
At this time of year, Pipsqueak stops where they have been cutting. The men give them to the changelings, and he takes them to the station.
Braeburn then takes them to the hills for the farmers to feed their stock."
Narrator: "Pipsqueak gave a ghostly whistle."
Pipsqueak: "Don't be frightened, Spike!"
Narrator: "He laughed."
Pipsqueak: "It's only me!"
Spike: "Your ugly fizz is enough to frighten anyone!"
Narrator: "Said Spike."
Spike: "You're like..."
Pipsqueak: "Ugly, indeed! I'm..."
Spike: "A white caterpillar with brown spots!"
Narrator: "Continued Spike firmly."
Spike: "You crawl like one, too."
Pipsqueak: "I don't!"
Spike: "Who's been late every afternoon this week?"
Pipsqueak: "It's the hay!"
Spike: "I can't help that."
Narrator: "Said Spike."
Spike: "Time's time, and Hoity Toity's relying on me to keep it! I can't if you crawl about in the hay till all hours!"
Pipsqueak: "'White caterpillar' indeed!"
Narrator: "Fumed Pipsqueak, as he set off to collect some hay to take to the harbor."
Pipsqueak: "Everyone says I'm handsome, or at least nearly everyone. Anyway, my tail is better than Spike's scales. Spike says I'm always late."
Narrator: "He grumbled."
Pipsqueak: "I'm never late, or at least only a few minutes. What's that to Spike? He can always catch up time further on."
Narrator: "All the same, he and his driver decided to start home early.
Then came trouble."
"A crate of treacle was upset all over Pipsqueak.
Pipsqueak was cross.
He was still sticky when he puffed away.
The wind was blowing fiercely."
Pipsqueak's Driver: "Look at that!"
Narrator: "Exclaimed the driver.
The wind caught the piled hay, tossing it up and over the road. The path climbed here."
Pipsqueak's Driver: "Take a run at it, Pipsqueak!"
Narrator: "His driver advised.
Pipsqueak gathered speed, but the hay made the road slippery, and his hooves wouldn't grip. Time after time, he stalled with spinning hooves and had to wait till the path ahead was cleared before he could start again.
Everyone was waiting. Spike seethed impatiently."
Spike: "Ten minutes late! I warned him! Passengers will complain, and Hoity Toity..."
Narrator: "Then, they all saw Pipsqueak. They laughed and shouted."
Pipsqueak: "Sorry I'm late!"
Narrator: "Pipsqueak panted."
Spike: "Look what's crawled out of the hay!"
Narrator: "Teased Spike."
Pipsqueak: "What's wrong?"
Narrator: "Asked Pipsqueak."
Spike: "Talk about hairy caterpillars!"
Narrator: "Puffed Spike."
Spike: "It's worth being late to have seen you."
Narrator: "When Pipsqueak came home, his driver showed him what he looked like in a mirror."
Pipsqueak: "Bust my hooves! No wonder they all laughed. I'm just like a woolly bear! Please clean me before Braeburn comes."
Narrator: "But it was no good. Spike told Braeburn all about it.
Instead of talking about sensible things like playing ghosts, Spike and Braeburn made jokes about woolly bear caterpillars, and other creatures which crawl about in hay. They laughed a lot, but Pipsqueak thought they were being really silly indeed."
