  • People come and go, in and out of the waiting room.
    They always choose the nice, comfortable sofas to sit on.

  • Kador is lying in the skip waiting to be carted off and tipped into the land-fill site.

    Kanker comes, finds some plastic bottle tops and scuttles off.

    Rath comes, collects some insulating material and scampers away.

    Goolan comes, cocks her head to one side, has a good look, but flies away.

    Pyth yw an poynt?mutters Kador, “What is the point?”

  • Then, Kador catches the eye of Gwarior Rugbi, limping past on his crutches.

    Ober da! shouts Gwarior Rugbi, “Proper job!”

    Gwarior Rugbi rescues Kador from the skip.

  • Back in his shed, Gwarior Rugbi is working away with his tools, fixing Kador to a large fibre-glass board.

  • “I may not be able to stand up without crutches” says Gwarior Rugbi, “but I can still go surfing!”

    Gwarior launches Kador into the whirling waves.

    Kador seems a lot happier now.

    Ober da! shouts Kador, “Proper job! OBER DA!”
