The rainy day

PC Richard was happy. Now his friend the milkman was happy, too. So was his daughter. “Happy birthday, PC Richard! Happy birthday to you!” said the milkman, giving him a carton of cream for his birthday tea. “How lovely!” said Mr Jones. It was just what he needed. They were all humans and not animals. They never were. It was the mechanic who said the milk float was fixed. “Hurry up, Sarah!” said the milkman to his daughter. It was so nice to see him again. The car was not badly broken, but nothing much. The mechanic said it just needed an oil change. His barber came to his house to take Mr Jones to his shop on the green to give him a hair cut for his birthday.

He decided to go out to a cafe with the milkman, who was his old friend. They had a lot to catch up on and they enjoyed their coffee and cake. They laughed and reminisced about their past adventures and shared their hopes for the future. He felt happy and grateful for having such a good friend in his life. They also went for a ride on his milk float, which was fun and nostalgic.

As they were driving along the countryside, they saw a familiar face waving at them from a car. It was King Edward, who had visited PC Richard’s village last year and had become friends with him. He had promised to come back and see him again, and he had kept his word. He pulled over and greeted them warmly.

“Hello, PC Richard! Hello, Mr Milkman! How are you doing? I’m so glad to see you again!” he said.

“Hello, Your Majesty! We’re doing fine, thank you. How are you?” they said.

“I’m doing well, thank you. I’m on my way to London for some official business, but I wanted to stop by and say hello to you first. You’re such a good friend to me, PC Richard. You showed me kindness and hospitality when I visited your village last year. You made me feel welcome and happy. You taught me how to enjoy the simple things in life.”

“That’s very kind of you to say, Your Majesty. You’re too generous. You’re a good friend to me, too. You showed me respect and friendship when you visited my village last year. You made me feel proud and honored. You taught me how to appreciate the big things in life.”

They smiled at each other and hugged.

“Would you like to join us for a cup of tea, Your Majesty?” asked PC Richard.

“I would love that, thank you,” said King Edward.

They got back on the milk float and drove to the nearest cafe.

They had a lovely time together, chatting and laughing like old friends.

They didn’t notice that the sky was getting dark and cloudy.

Suddenly, it started to rain heavily.

“Oh dear, it’s raining cats and dogs!” exclaimed PC Richard.

“We better get going before we get soaked!” said the milkman.

“Indeed, we better hurry!” agreed King Edward.

They finished their tea and got ready to leave.

“Thank you for your company, Your Majesty. It was a pleasure to see you again,” said PC Richard.

“Thank you for your hospitality, PC Richard. It was a joy to see you again,” said King Edward.

They hugged and said goodbye.

“Take care of yourself, Your Majesty. I hope to see you again soon,” said PC Richard.

“You too, PC Richard. I’ll come and see you next year,” said King Edward. But next time i will bring my daughter Princess Jill

then King Edward went home back to his castle
They parted ways with a smile and a wave.

PC Richard got back on his milk float with his friend the milkman and his daughter Sarah.

They drove back home in the rain, feeling happy and content.

They had had a wonderful birthday celebration with their friends.
