At "Story Telling Time" Hank told the others about his day's work. He was very proud of himself. The others were interested, but then George, a little bored, interrupted.

"Sigrid, Rebecca, Bobby, Northumberland and myself brought up some more artifacts near 'ShipRock.'"
"But I'm not finished talking about my day," protested Hank.
 
"You can tell us more when George is finished," promised George. He then began to go into storytelling mode.
 
"If they don't like what I do for the Harbour nor respect me," thought Hank angrily, "then I shall just go away."
 
It wasn't until everybody was asleep that Hank left, and went to the Old Docks. He woke up one of the cranes, and after asking for lifting, the crane, assisted by another hoisted Hank out of the water and behind the old warehouse.
 
 
The next day at the "Morning Work Meeting" the tugs and Sigrid were surprised to find that Hank wasn't there.
 
"Maybe he went to refill his tank," assumed George.
 
"Or to visit with Rebecca or another one of his friends," assumed Foduck.
 
Ten minutes passed before the meeting began, and by that time Hank had still not showed up. The Dispatcher was surprised.
 
"Nevertheless, we shall get work done without Hank. I shall have Constance and Nautilus search for him."
 
Then he gave out the first assignments for everyone. They all went their ways, with their worries of Hank at the back of their mind echoing their concern. George and Foduck brought a floating crane with a wrecking ball tot he Old Warehouse Docks. Pearl was on hand.
 
"On my cue, swing," ordered Pearl. "Three...two...one...swing!"
 
The crane released the wrecking, which flew across, and nailed the warehouse in a big BANG! The warehouse began to fall sideways. Behind it sat Hank, who got hit by all the rubble. The cranes were surprised.
 
"Before you demolish another building, we have to tell you something."
 
They explained that Hank was hiding behind the warehouse that was just demolished.
 
"We tried to tell you, but you didn't listen, and now poor Hank is damaged."
 
"Oh dear," sighed Pearl. "Dig him out at once!"
 
So construction vehicles came, and once all the rubble was removed, they revealed that Hank was indeed hit by the rubble. His hull was damaged, along with popped bumpers, and a completely broken smokestack and horn.
 
"Why were you hiding back here," demanded Foduck. "We were all worried about you."
 
"Because nobody seemed to care about me," blurted out Hank.
 
He told them all everything.
 
"We're very sorry. We'll try our best to show how much we appreciate your work."
 
"And if you ever feel any negative emotions again," added George, "please tell someone about them. We don't want you getting yourself into trouble like you did today."
 
 
So Hank was taken to the Repair Dock, and once he was repaired he got hoisted back intot he water. He is a much happier tugboat now. He still has his fair share of bad days, but he's more open about his feelings, which has made his friendships more meaningful than ever before.
