Poppy knows a Secret

Nell: Poppy is looking sly and confident.

Me: What do you mean?

Nell: She is walking around in a feathered hat and high boots.

Me: Gosh.

Nell: Carrying her sword.

Me: I wonder why.

Nell: Do you really?

Me: What’s that supposed to mean?

Nell: On being questioned, she said ‘Ask Sara.’

Me: Oh dear.

Nell: So?

Me: I didn’t know she was there.

Nell: Where?

Me: On my pillow. She made herself look small.

Nell: She is small.

Me: She must have heard everything.

Nell: She seems pretty pleased with herself.

Me: Well, you know that final surprise?

Nell: You mean the one we weren’t telling anyone about yet?

Me: Yes. That one. I might have gone and told BBC Radio Devon.

Nell: I beg your pardon?

Me: They asked me to update them so I told them about the Christmas Special and Pippa invited me to do a pre-recorded interview about it for her morning show.

Nell: So that’s what you were doing upstairs secretly on Wednesday? Chatting to the BBC?

Me: Yes. Pippa loves the book, by the way, and the Christmas Special. She is a big fan of ours.

Nell: That’s lovely.

Me: She even played an excerpt from it.

Nell: Most kind.

Me: But now the secret is out.

Nell: Except none of us heard it, apart from Poppy and all of Devon, of course.

Me: I didn’t know it was going out yesterday morning until it was too late. Pippa texted me but I don’t always get texts.

Nell: It’s a Devon thing.

Me: Kev is going to download my interview and put it online so everyone can hear it.

Nell: You’re going to have to mention it in tomorrow’s conversation, too. Poppy will burst if you don’t.

Me: Yes, I will. Sorry.
