Flying Cockroach

One evening, a flying cockroach buzzes into our home frightening the heejie beejies out of Ojas, Tejas & their Mamma.
Mamma brandished a slipper and lead it to its certain death, shoved it out of the house using a broom and cleaned up with extra dose of domex.
Well, it ensured that the 2 stayed on the sofa for quite a while after that and gave me the opportunity to start a brand new series of tales.
Here's the first one.
One day, Flying Cockroach (FC) came to Ojas & Tejas's home. He found lot of toys lying on the floor. He quickly went out and told his friends- Ojas and Tejas don't like their toys. They throw them on the floor and never keep them in the cupboard. So FC and his friend (another FC) came home one morning when Ojas & Tejas had gone to school. FC took Tejas' new red car and his friend took Ojas' new yellow car and sat on the seat and drove away.
Ojas & Tejas came home from school and began looking for their cars.
Ojas cried- where is my yellow car? It is not there.
Tejas cried- and where is my red car? It is also not there.
Mamma told them- Let's look outside in the garden. Maybe you took them there.
They all went to the garden and saw that FC and his friend were driving Ojas' & Tejas' cars. So Mamma asked FC and his friend- Why did you take Ojas' & Tejas' cars without asking them?
FC said to Mamma- because they don't want their cars. They throw it on the floor. Tomorrow I will come and take more toys.
So Ojas & Tejas told Mamma we will never through the toys on the floor. We will keep them nicely.
So Mamma told FC and his friend- the cars are very dirty. Park them and get some water to wash the cars. How can you be driving dirty cars.
So FC & his friend parked the red car and yellow car and went to get 2 mugs with water.
Mamma quickly took the cars inside the house and closed the door.
Ojas and Tejas took the cars and kept them neatly in the toy cupboard.
So when next day FC came to steal more toys from the floor- he could not find any and went back crying- boo hoo hoo...

The story is good, but if your kids are anything like mine, that's all it will remain - a good story, with no follow-up action!
