The answer is obvious

Me: What are you two looking for?

Nell: Even while swimming one must stay alert. The Black Claw could be anywhere.

Me: I don’t like the sound of that.

Nell: Reports have come in from trusted friends of animals behaving badly.

Me: Oh dear.

Nell: A certain Flossy Mae from Georgia in the US tipped over the rubbish bin and she would never have done that under normal circumstances.

Me: How shocking.

Nell: Yes. She doesn’t know what came over her.

Me: Gosh.

Nell: Fortunately she called our Helpline and spoke to our Chief Advisor who was able to help.

Me: We have a Helpline?

Nell: Of course. Animals need to be able to turn to us for advice when they feel the badness coming on.

Me: Who is the Chief Advisor? Mutley?

Nell: Mutley can’t hear. There is no point in phoning him.

Me: It can’t be Alejandro as his English isn’t that good. Gladys doesn’t do advice and Harriet’s busy being a spy.

Nell: The answer is obvious.

Me: It is?

Nell: Yes. It’s David. He knows all about making mistakes, he has a heart of gold and winning ways.

Me: And a lovely telephone voice.

Nell: Yes. Just what is needed.

Me: Do you know I wondered why he was walking around with headphones talking to himself.

Nell: He’s been taking calls all morning. Poppy had to make him several bacon sandwiches as his energy levels were low.

Me: They would be. I’m so glad he isn’t Left Out anymore.

Nell: Yes. He is safely involved.

Me: So what happens next? I heard Sally is on her way from London.

Nell: Yes. She is meeting with the surveillance team on the ground.

Me: Gladys and Alejandro?

Nell: No. Henry and Horst. Do keep up.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
