''Now now Spec, I will tell you about it later, but right now your sister and I need your help to seal these windows!'' said Lahzar.
''Please grandfather,'' said Spec, ''just one little story!''
''Spec, you heard what Grandfather Lahzar said. Let's get to work!'' sighed Tra.
By now, Grandfather Lahzar and Tra were a little fed up with Spec, but neither of them said anything. ''Spec, did you hear what I just said?'' shouted Tra.
"Even if I did, it wouldn't have been interesting!'' Spec shouted back.
''Children, there isn't any need for all this arguing. Now I'm going to go and get a cup of coffee and when I come back I want you to have sorted this out. Do you understand?'' said Grandfather Lahzar sternly.
''But grandfather -" started Spec and Tra.
''No buts,'' said Grandfather Lahzar.
''Yes grandfather,'' grumbled Tra and Spec.
When Lahzar had gone, Tra noticed something strange about Spec. ''Spec, what's that strange cloud on your head?'' she asked. ''Oh no! Let me guess. You bumped into Sloth Cloud when we were walking here. Didn't you hear mum telling us to be careful of the Clouds of Darkness?'' exclaimed Tra.
"Um, I might have," whispered Spec quietly.
"Spec, you can be a pain sometimes! We better tell Grandfather right away.''
Spec didn't want to tell Grandfather Lahzar because he thought he would be in trouble! He certainly didn't want to get into trouble because his mum said that if he did he wouldn't be allowed to go to his friend's house next week! He told Tra this, but she said he didn't have to tell Grandfather because the same thing had happened to her before and she knew what it was like.
''I've got an idea!'' said Tra suddenly. ''We can ask my Plant Baby for help!" So Tra went off to find her.
Spec just sat there thinking of how silly he was for walking into Sloth Cloud. When Tra got back, her Persistence Plant Baby was ready. ''I know!'' exclaimed Persistence Plant Baby, ''Why doesn't Spec write it down on a piece of paper and give it to Grandfather Lahzar? Then he might understand Spec's point of view!''
It was a wonderful plan. So Tra lent Spec her best notebook and pen so that he could write it down. When Spec had done this, she quietly snuck into the kitchen and put it by the kettle. Grandfather Lahzar would surely find it there. Eventually, he found the note, was a bit disappointed, but forgave Spec and promised not to tell his mother. Spec was incredibly pleased at that and thanked Tra for helping him. He thanked her Persistence Plant Baby for her wonderful idea. And of course, Spec thanked Grandfather Lahzar for being, well, for being his grandfather!
