Recently, a mysterious stranger knocked at our front door.
Mystery Boy: I wonder if anyone is at home.
Frank: Oh, hello little boy.
Mystery Boy: Hello Sir; my name is Luke. Me and my dog were wondering if we could have a drink of water and rest here for a minute.
Frank: What's your dog's name?
Krakatoa: Yip! Yip!
Frank: Wait here, please.
Frank: Hey Robin, there's some little hippy boy at the front door.
Robin: Did you tell him that we've already made a donation to Clean Water Action?
Frank: He's not with them. He and his dog Krakatoa just want to rest here a while.
Bowie: 'Krakatoa?' Isn't that the name of a volcano?
Robin: Very curious. Let's invite him in.
Luke: Thank you for your hospitality. We really appreciate it.
Robin: So tell us, Luke, have you been on your own for some time?
Luke: Oh yeah, quite a while; ever since we escaped.
Frank: Escaped?!? From where?
Luke: The old Reddish Mill.
Robin: You mean the Trendon factory?
Bowie: Did anyone know you left?
Luke: Boy, did they ever! I was chased for blocks and blocks by a lady named Doreen. She came after me with a tiny paintbrush, yelling "Stop young man! We must paint over those eyelashes!"
Bowie: Hey, you do have eyelashes! Robin and I have eyelashes, too.
Luke: You won't for long if Doreen catches you.
Robin: Well, I'm supposed to have eyelashes. I'm a prince.
Bowie: Yeah, and I'm a...a musician.
Luke: Ah, yeah, of course. Aren't you one of the Bay City Rollers?
Bowie: Huh? Who? No.
Benjamin Roy: Say, Luke, why don't you go upstairs and, um, freshen up. Change into some new clothes. It, ah, smell--I mean, looks, like you've been wearing that outfit for a while.
Luke: Great idea! Thank you!
Benjamin Roy: I think we should ask him to stay here. Daddy Steve won't mind; he always says the more the merrier. And Daddy John does whatever Daddy Steve says...
Robin: I think he's a bit odd. And 'Krakatoa' is a funny name for a dog.
Frank: Maybe his dog erupts.
Bowie: He's not odd; just sort of bohemian.
Emile: Bohemian, oui! Perhaps he ees an artiste like Rodolfo in 'La Bohemme.' Oh mais oui he must absolutely live 'ere wiz us. There; it ees settled.
When Luke returned, the boys told him the news.
Luke: Live you with you guys? That would be wonderful! You hear that Krakatoa? We have a new home!
Krakatoa: Yip! Yip!
