After that, the Walltalkers climbed back up the slide. It was much harder to climb up than go down properly, but they did it in the end. At the top, they climbed out and into the Slide Room. There, all three collapsed. The wall was waiting nearby.
After all three got up, Mr. Walltalker said he had an idea. He whispered it to Reba. Reba nodded, grinning. Mr. Walltalker left, and soon came in driving his car. The ample ground held its weight.
After Mr. Walltalker climbed out, Mrs. Walltalker bent down so she was face-to-face with Reba. "Remember how you said you were an orphan?" When Reba remained silent, she continued, "We have decided to adopt you. The choice has been placed before you. Will you come home with us?"
"Yes," Reba replied, offering the car a glance.
"It is settled, then," said Mrs. Walltalker. "Who were your parents?"
"I don't have any," Reba said. "You know that."
Mrs. Walltalker nodded. Hopefully her new daughter would tell her more later.
"Where is your hometown?" Reba asked.
"Provo," said Mrs. Walltalker. "We live in Provo, Utah."
"One of the slides leads to Provo!" said Reba. "I'll take you there. It can hold your--well, now our car too." With the last sentence, she was mostly talking to Mrs. Walltalker. "We'll be home in no time."
Mr. Walltalker got behind the car and pushed on it. It rolled into the slide and disappeared into the long, dark tube.
"You first," said Mr. Walltalker. Mrs. Walltalker climbed in and went down the slide home, soon to be followed by Mr. Walltalker, the wall, and their new daughter, Reba Silo Walltalker.
