11/30/2012 - At 9 a.m. Emily’s and Edie’s Ex Orphan group came to the Stockades to drink, but did not stay long, heading out to search for the Youngsters. They first went to the Middle Waterhole, where they did not find them, but detected their presence when the Youngsters accessed the Big Waterhole. The Ex Orphans hurried there and plunged in without hesitation, which at first scared the Youngsters who began to exit the waterhole, until they realized that it was Emily’s Unit, when they returned to join them. Icholta enjoyed playing with Taveta while Edie engaged Mzima in a wrestling match, after which Mzima took on Mpala and Seraa. Mzima remained with the Ex Orphans for a long time before joining his colleagues as they made their way back in the evening. It was a very Happy Ending to the month.
