I was glad that Finny and Rooty had finally made up .
I exited my room and saw the two standing near the staircase .
" Are you happy , now?" inquired Finny .
I punched his shoulder playfully.
"Obviously " , I replied.
Rooty gave me a sudden hug...which was very unexpected.
" I love you!" he exclaimed . I hugged him back .
" Really? What did i do ?" I inquired .
" Umm..you remember that, don't you ?"
Remember what ? " What?" I inquired .
" You are nice ...you comforted me when I was crying in the balcony" , Rooty replied .
I let go off him and smiled. Indeed, you can't hate Joe Root !
"Helllllppppp!!!!!! " someone yelled . I nearly jumped up in fright . The voice seemed to be coming from Cooky' s room .
Finny , Rooty and I ran to the chef's room. Soon his room was crowded with the whole lot of us .
Cooky was standing on his bed , shivering continously and pointing to the ground. There was a giant python!
" Get it away!" yelled Cooky .
I took a few steps forward when Swanny stopped me.
He turned to Cooky .
" Well if you want to be safe , forgive me first " , he ordered .
I looked at Cooky' s face. It was literally blushing !
" Ok" , the scared Cooky replied.
Jimmy , Rooty , Finny and I carried the heavy python to the garden . Clever Finny buried it in the ground.
I gave him a high five .
Then, I went to see Cooky .
He was standing outside his room , huffing and puffing.
" Is everything all right , now ?" I inquired .
" Yup..Broady , you know how scared I am of snakes ! " Cooky exclaimed .
I gave him a hug . " I know "
