Pooh hummed a little as he walked along the rocks of a quickened riverbank stream. He bounced from foot to foot as he landed on each rock, a smile growing upon his teddy bear face. He could hear rapids up ahead, the current getting stronger and that stopped him a little and he brought a paw up to his mouth.
“Now that noise means something,” he said quietly to himself. “Although its not a buzzing noise... and it certainly isn’t my tummy rumbling... but I don’t think I’ve... I don’t know if I’ve... what could it be!” Deciding to take a closer look he moved towards a log, that was used like a bridge crossing the huge river.
He stopped on the log bridge and glanced down at the rushing river below and his eyes widened... the water vanished over great big falls. Deciding this was no where a bear of very little brain should be, he moved back, just as a breeze ruffled his fur and knocked him off balance.
“Oh!” he cried out in surprise, losing his footing and falling. “Oh help!” He tried to grasp a tree branch that was jutting out but his paws didn’t reach it, instead his red shirt caught on a tiny twig and it slowly started to unravel.
“Oh bother...” he said looking down at the rapids that he knew he’d fall into soon. He reached for the untangling red string and felt himself lower closer. This wasn’t good! Not at all!
“HELP!” he called out as he was once again lowered more. “Oh I do hope somebody hears me...”
Willy nilly silly old bear.

Since Riley had seen most of the parks already he decided to go see Animal Kingdom and see all the wild life and such. Now normally he didn’t like all this outdoors stuff but he decided he might as well see what all the fuss was all about.
As Riley walked around he had to admit that the scenery was beautiful. ‘Not only that but the atmosphere was great too, what with the birds singing, the cries for help, the… wait what was that’ Riley thought as he heard the distinct cries for help. Impulse taking over Riley ran to where he thought the noise was coming from. Once their he found a huge waterfall and a bear hanging on to a branch with only his shirt. “Don’t worry I’ll help” Riley said trying not to let his own nervousness show as he got on the ground and reached out a hand to the bear. Unfortunately he couldn’t get closer than a few inches from the bears hand. “I think you’ll have to reach” Riley said trying to sound calm as he looked around to try to find a branch or anything that could be used to pull the bear up.

Pooh was sure he was going to fall in and the rapids below him didn’t look too friendly... in fact they didn’t look friendly at all. The rocks that poked out above the river looked like they’d hurt to bump into and he’d bumped into a lot of things before... but being a bear stuffed with fluff and sawdust, he knew he’d be tossed around quite a bit. With a sigh he felt his shirt tear a bit more and he crossed his legs seeing the water get a little bit closer.
The voice came out of nowhere and it startled Pooh, as most things did, but the voice seemed friendly, helpful and not one he recognized either. He saw the offered, outstretched hand and reached his own paw up towards it, stretching a little.
“Bother,” he grunted as his paw was an inch short. He uncrossed his legs and wiggled them a little trying to see if that helped and slowly... closer... Pooh’s paw wrapped a little around Riley’s fingers just as his shirt unravelled a bit more and he was sent forward, now only hanging by Riley’s fingers.
“Oh!” he cried out and glanced over his shoulder down at the falls and rapids. “Oh my goodness.” He felt the wind whip up around him, could barely hear the trees rustling and his paw slipped from Riley’s, panic filling his black teddy bear eyes.
He hit the water and vanished for all of a second before returning to the surface in an array of bubbles and flailing golden yellow arms. He caught sight of Riley at the side of the river bank as he neared closer to the impending doom but he was swept near to the edge of the river and tried desperately to find something to cling too.
“Oh boooottthhhherrr!” he cried as he saw the falls getting closer.
