One was the flowers he grew in his balcony and his second one he kept it a secret to himself. It was Mrs. Silver. He had always hoped for doing something tremendous like saving her life from a huge gang of armed thugs. The trouble was that she loved somebody else. It was her small pet tortoise, Alfie. One day, Mr. Hoppy saw something that changed his life. “I wish he grew a bit faster” Mrs. Silver was saying to Mr. Hoppy from her balcony. An idea struck in Mr .Hoppy’s head. What if he would make Alfie grow bigger! Mrs. Silver begged him to tell her how to make him get bigger.
