I have something to tell you

Nell: Close the door. I have something important to discuss with you.

Me: What’s happened?

Nell: You are not going to believe this.

Me: I just might.

Nell: What I’m about to tell you is in the strictest confidence.

Me: That’s a bit difficult.

Nell: If you tell anyone they will have to swear to keep it to themselves.

Me: Ok.

Nell: Henry has been in touch with Horst using Louse Code.

Me: What’s Louse Code?

Nell: I think it’s done with leaves, sticks and vibrations but I am not sure. Anyway, that’s not the point. Henry is alive.

Me: What did Henry say?

Nell: It was rather shocking.

Me: Please just tell me what he said.

Nell: ‘It’s not Sally.’

Me: What?

Nell: That’s all, apart from ‘Min’ at the end.

Me: Min?

Nell: Min is Henry’s nickname because he’s so small. It’s a family secret so Horst knows it’s definitely him.

Me: Clever.

Nell: The question is, what does it mean?

Me: Sally didn’t do it?

Nell: Or, Sally isn’t Sally.

Me: But if Sally isn’t Sally, then who is she? And how come she looks like Sally?

Nell: That is what we mean to find out.

Me: But how are we going to do that?

Nell: Handsome is in a meeting right now with Charlie, Horst and Knitwear Wolf.

Me: But we have to tell Dave. My Big Brave Beautiful Boy is in danger.

Nell: Harriet has been informed and is watching over David until we know more.

Me: But Dave needs to know.

Nell: There is a high probability that David will reveal the truth if he’s told. We have to consider Henry and Sally’s safety too.

Me: True.

Nell: Don’t worry. We will come up with a plan. We always do.

Me: You’re right. Sorry.
