Nell: Leave it be. We are dealing with it. Poppy is cross examining and I am presiding over the proceedings from the couch.
Me: Dealing with what?
Nell: The hole in the carpet.
Nell: David is giving evidence now.
Me: And Harriet?
Nell: She has already been questioned.
Me: So who did it? Was it Dave, or Harriet.
Nell: The jury is out.
Me: What jury?
Nell: Good grief. You don’t think there is a real jury do you? I’m not going to get the farmer’s sheepdogs in here.
Me: Have they got a defence? Should I help?
Nell: Mutley put in a good word.
Me: Will you let me know?
Nell: After the sentencing.
Me: But Nell…
Nell: Silence in court.
