The Takeaway

Me: You’re back early from dinner.

Nell: Yes.

Me: Is everything ok?

Nell: Not really.

Me: What happened?

Nell: It all started well. Champagne and those little canapés from Barks and Spencer.

Me: I like those.

Nell: But the main course was quite a shock.

Me: Was it offal? It’s very “in” at the moment.

Nell: What are you talking about? No. It was a takeaway.

Me: That’s disappointing and rather lazy. He could have made an effort.

Nell: From Starbeaks.

Me: No? I can’t believe it. What was it like?

Nell: I didn’t eat it. I left. John is Poppy’s fiancé. He is family and so is Jago. I’m not supporting the Beefies.

Me: Quite right. What did Sebastian say?

Nell: He said I was overreacting and he will call me tomorrow.

Me: What are you going to do?

Nell: I am not going to do anything. But Mutley needs to try and remember how he knows Sebastian. Something isn’t right.

Me: Yes.

Nell: In the meantime, please try not to let your imagination run away with you. It was just a takeaway.

Me: Yes. It’s all a bit fishy though, isn’t it?

Nell: Enough.

Me: Sorry.
