Astro’s Adventures: The Great Escape – Inside the Checkout
Just as he spoke, a light flashed from under one of the buildings and then disappeared again.
“There,” pointed Alfie and they began to climb out of the hole.
They both made their way over to where Indy had been waiting for them and crawled under the house. Alfie didn’t quite fit and his rear end stuck out and up into the air.
Both Indy and Digger shook their heads, grabbed Alfie by his front legs and pulled him under. He cried as his back hit the bottom of the building and a piece of wood broke off. “Shhhhh,” they growled at him in unison.
Dingo Finds a New Home
Dingo sat outside the office and whimpered and shook his body. Every now and then, he made a loud yelp and twitched. It didn’t take long before the receptionist came out and saw him. She was a young woman who wore far too much make up and read romance novels aloud when no one was around. She didn’t like dogs much. She kept several cats at home and actually preferred their company to any dog until now…
“Oh my goodness, Oh my goodness!!” she cooed. “Isn’t he adorable? Oh my, how did you get in here? You poor little thing!” She picked him up and took him inside. Dingo shook and shivered. She wrapped him in a blanket and placed him in a basket near her desk. As she was tucking the blanket around him, the warden bustled through the door with Sumo.
“You’ll never guess what I just found…” they both spoke together. The warden looked at Dingo and the receptionist stared at Sumo.
“Well, I never,” the warden scratched his head. “Two volunteers in one day!”
Back at Control Centre, Hans sent a brief message to Commander Rocky which read: All Operatives are in place.
