As Bertie and Croc made their way round the darkening square they both felt a buzz of excitement. Even though the sun had now set, the air was still warm and there were plenty of people moving around the square.
Bertie took some time to admire the fountains and the rows of large pillars. Croc kept looking behind him at the building in the hope of seeing the mystery figure once more.
Bertie knew their time in Rome was coming to an end. An experienced traveller just seems to know when it is time to move on, or go home and rest to get ready for the next adventure. He wasn’t going to miss the heat of the city but he was going to miss the architecture. How round every corner there was something new to look at and capture his attention. He felt a very honoured bear indeed to have had the opportunity to visit such a historic city.
As Bertie continued to look at the fountain he noticed the outlines of the figures on top of the pillars. They were lit by lights just underneath them and they gave him a weird chill even though the air was warm. Suddenly, rainbows appeared around the lights. Bertie blinked and rubbed his eyes. When he opened them again the rainbows had gone. Bertie liked rainbows, they always made him feel happy inside. He shook his head wondering whether the trip had worn him out and he was seeing things. It was only when he looked back at the photographs that were taken he realised he may have seen something just as magical as Croc did a few moments before!
