Mangohead and the Zaboca Thief S01E01

"Mangohead!" Ma Ramsawak called from outside the house. "Come downstairs, people here to see you!"
Mangohead groaned and rolled over onto his side. What time was it? Casting an eye on the large, green digits of the digital clock that sat atop his wardrobe, he noted that the time was around a quarter past seven; far too early to be stirring on a Saturday morning. Still, if he decided not to respond to his mother, there would be hell to pay later. If there was one thing every single village child knew, it was not to cross Ma Ramsawak, and Mangohead being her son, knew that far better than any other.

He heaved himself out of bed with a concerted effort and rubbed the sleep out of his eyes as his feet unconsciously shuffled for his flip-flops. Having more or less got the elusive rubber-and-plastic accoutrements on, he half walked, half stumbled out the front door and down the stairs.
