Hide and Seek

Me: Why is Harriet sitting up there?

Nell: She is counting to 100.

Me: Why?

Nell: To give Dave and Poppy time to hide. They are playing hide and seek.

Me: Can I play?

Nell: No. Mutley and I aren’t playing this time either. Three is enough. David counts as two already, to be honest. I just hope he doesn’t try and get in the dustbin again.

Me: I bet Poppy is good at it.

Nell: She has an unfair advantage as a Maltese cross but she is extremely skilled.

Me: I can imagine.

Nell: The best one was when she climbed into Jonathan Sky’s cot and sat there like one of his toys. Dave looked everywhere and never spotted her.

Me: Clever. Do you ever play?

Nell: Now and again, but I prefer to read the papers on a Sunday. 

Me: Is that David trying to fit under the sofa?

Nell: Don’t draw attention. Could you pass me the Sunday Times please?

Me: Of course. Sorry.
