Nell: Waiting for the Beast.
Nell: No, not David. Don’t be silly.
Me: You mean the Beast from the East.
Nell: I do.
Me: Bit scary.
Nell: It’s snow and cold winds. That’s all.
Me: What if we run out of supplies?
Me: Or the power is cut?
Nell: We have candles and logs for the wood burner.
Me: I will have to cuddle you for warmth, Nell.
Nell: You will not.
Me: How will I survive?
Nell: Actually this is where David will triumph.
Me: Of course! Dave loves cuddles.
Nell: He does.
Me: I’ll just cuddle Dave all day.
Nell: I think you will find yourself in a queue.
Me: Dave loves me.
Nell: Yes, he does but Harriet means everything to David as you well know. Why do you think he confessed to misdemeanours during the trial?
Me: I don’t know.
Nell: He was trying to take the focus off his sister. This is also why he only received a warning.
Me: I see. So Harriet comes first.
Nell: She does. Fortunately there is a lot of David to go round and he gets on her nerves so he will be over to warm you up very soon.
