Three Go Camping on Tokyo Moor
Most Definitely Not By Enid Blyton

We are the famous three...
We are the famous three...
Always on the case, whereever we are,
Near or far.
After an exhausting day of planning and shopping, the Famous Three
quickly consumed a hasty dinner of cold roast beef on thick slabs of
fresh bread, and bedded down in their new tents. Although convinced
that she would not sleep a wink, Hokuto was surprised to find herself
awakening out of a sound sleep to the sound of whimpers.
"That's right Pochi," a hoarse voice whispered. "Good boy. Goooooood
"Seishirou?" Hokuto whispered. "Is Pochi here?"
"Hokuto?" Seishirou's voice was hoarse. "Yes he is, but stay where you
"But I want to see him," Hokuto complained, a little louder.
"Ssshhh, he's got something in his mouth," Seishirou whispered back to
her. "I don't want to startle him. Good boy, good Pochi."
"What is it? Is he choking?" Hokuto sat up abruptly.
"A little," Seishirou said tensely. "Just give me a... ah! Yes Pochi!
Good boy! Come. Come now! Give it to me!"
There was a high-pitched whine and some rapid choking sounds. Hokuto
bit her lip in fear. "Did you get it?"
"Yes." Seishirou sounded exhausted.
"Is Pochi alright?"
"He's fine... there he goes." Seishirou sounded fond and Hokuto could
hear him thudding down onto the ground. "Ah..."
"He didn't bite you did he?"
"No," Seishirou almost seemed to find that funny. "But I don't think
he'll be coming again toni... did you hear that?"
Hokuto tensed. Could it be?
"Woooooo... AAAAHHHHH... AWOOOOOOO..."
Hokuto dashed out of her tent, clutching a pot ladle in one hand and a
torch in the other. Seishirou joined her moments later, armed with a
torch and a saucepan. The two stood there in their pajamas, trying to
ascertain where the noise was coming from. Slowly, groggily, Subaru
crawled out of the boy's tent as the cries got louder. He shone his own
torch around as the three children sought their foes.
"Where is it coming from?" Hokuto muttered.
A dark shape loomed up in front of her. "WATCH OUT!" Seishirou moved in
front of Hokuto and pushed the figure away violently. It fell away and
some sort of liquid splashed over Seishirou's body. Subaru scrambled
over and stood next to Hokuto, grabbing his own weapon, a small iron
pot, as he did so. Two more figures loomed out at them, and the twins
swung out with all their strength. Cries of pain replaced the ghostly
wails as the twins and Seishirou belaboured their foes.
"OW!" One voice cried. "Bloody kids!"
Subaru jerked in surprise. "That's the man who hit me!" He yelled.
Seishirou's face seemed to snarl in the thin torchlight as he tackled
the man who had cried out.
After the scuffle had ended, the Famous Three found that they had two
captives, both older men. The one who had first attacked them was
"Must have run off," Seishirou said as he tied the ropes they'd bought
tightly around their captives. "Never mind, the police will find him."
He knotted the ropes firmly. "There, they won't get out of those!"
"What do you think they wanted?" Hokuto asked excitedly.
"I'm sure they'll tell us in the morning," Seishirou said calmly. "Now
Subaru, are you sure you're not hurt?"
Subaru massaged his jaw slowly. "I'm fine," he said. "It's just a
little sore. Ugh, and I've got muck all over me!" He brushed at his
"I'm fine too!" Hokuto bounced with nervous energy. "Let's find out
what they wanted now!"
"Not now," Seishirou repeated. "In the morning. You two need to get
back to sleep. I'll watch them."
"Are you sure?" Subaru asked, just as Hokuto said, "Oh, I couldn't
"You say that now, but you'll feel tired in a moment," Seishirou said,
smiling at her gently.
Hokuto found herself yawning at his suggestion. "Oh well, perhaps
you're right," she said regretfully. "In the morning then. Come on
Subaru, I'm sure we can leave them in Seishirou's capable hands."
The twins crawled into Hokuto's tent, curled up around each other, and
