Learning the Truth

Me: Why are you and Poppy looking so serious?

Nell: There was a revelation at Morning Thoughts that has left us no alternative.

Me: But I only told my friends and they all promised to keep quiet.

Nell: Good grief. It’s not about you. Why do you think Poppy has been making bacon sandwiches?

Me: Friday treats?

Nell: No. David is Learning the Truth.

Me: I’m not sure that’s a good idea, Nell, even with a plate of bacon sandwiches on the side.

Nell: We have no choice. David discovered something incriminating in Sally’s bag.

Me: I presume you mean Bad Sally.

Nell: Stop saying that. Yes.

Me: A knife?

Nell: Much worse.

Me: Not a gun?

Nell: No. A half eaten piece of Cornish Yarg.

Me: She hasn’t eaten Henry, has she?

Nell: Would you stop. Henry is somewhere else entirely. This was another piece.

Me: But how do you know?

Nell: Because Horst just heard from him.

Me: Good. So is it to do with sharing then?

Nell: What are you talking about?

Me: Was David upset because Bad Sally didn’t share?

Nell: No. David knows Cornish Yarg is Hunter’s favourite cheese.

Me: I see.

Nell: You don’t though, do you?

Me: Not really.

Nell: David thinks Hunter is trying to recruit Sally by offering her cheese. He says it explains her odd behaviour.

Me: He has a point.

Nell: But she isn’t Sally, is she?

Me: No.

Nell: He wants to reason with her.

Me: That could be very dangerous.

Nell: I know. Which is why David is with Charlie and Knitwear Wolf right now.

Me: My poor Big Brave Beautiful Boy. What did Henry say?

Nell: ‘There’s more than one.’

Me: Is that all?

Nell: It’s Louse Code. You have to be brief.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
