I hopped after Clarissa as fast as I could, out of the burrow, and down to the field.
All the other rabbits were already there, looking up in horror. Oh, bless my ears and whiskers! In front of us was the biggest, tallest, hugest fence you ever did see.
"Whatever are we going to do?" wailed Clarissa. "How are we going to get our carrots?"
"Don't panic," said Nigel Floppyears. "We'll find a way! Us rabbits aren't put off this easily."
"If only we rabbits were capable of flying!" I said.
"Why, Bob Tail Rabbit," said Nigel, "I think you've got it! Wait here, everyone." Nigel rushed to his workshop. Bang! Saw! Ow! Huff! Puff! A few moments later, he reappeared. "Look, this is what we need!"
"It's a cap, and it's able to fly! I'll be over the fence in seconds. Winston: the scissors!"
We watched Nigel rise into the air.
Up, until he was just a speck in the sky...
...and then not even that.
After a while, Clarissa said, "Of course, Nigel has found a way to get up... but how is he going to get down again...?"
