Glancing down at the two shattered booths, Leopold's mouth quivered in dismay: Both Aria and Taylorella sprang up from the ground, brushed loose particles off their clothing, and fluttered around like furious hornets. Revved up with enough energy to power a whole fleet of warships for five billion years, they searched seventeen hopper cars from top to bottom; and then made their way to another series of hoppers lined up on the main tracks and ready for departure. Quickly latching onto the exterior handles, Aria and Taylorella hoisted themselves up on the last car of one train and progressively skipped to each subsequent unit with the ferocious tenacity of a starved arctic fox. Every once in a while, Aria and Taylorella thought they had spotted Leopold's head; therefore, the two would climb inside the train and clobber the mistaken object; which only turned out to be many pygmalions clustered tightly together. Meanwhile, Leopold's forearms shivered uncontrollably and his teeth rattled behind those sky high leaves. Clenching his body as near to the branches as he could, Leopold calmed his mind a tad bit.
