Together Again

Me: When Sally’s car pulled into the drive I thought Dave was going to explode with joy.

Nell: You squealed.

Me: I know I did. I was trying ever so hard not to, but it just happened. Where are they now?

Nell: They’ve gone for a walk. Some alone time.

Me: It has all been very busy since she arrived.

Nell: David wanted to introduce her to everyone.

Me: He is so proud of her. Darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy.

Nell: He’s lucky she could visit.

Me: How did she manage that?

Nell: Official business. Don’t ask me what about.

Me: Spy stuff I expect. I wonder if Harriet knows.

Nell: Of course she does.

Me: Talking of spying, did I see a couple of envelopes addressed to you?

Nell: You might have done.

Me: You have secret admirers.

Nell: Just silly nonsense.

Me: Have you looked at them?

Nell: Of course not. Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day.

Me: I noticed Romeo delivering red roses to Susan. Does Malcolm mind?

Nell: No, but Terry does. He has given Romeo a stern warning.

Me: I think Terry should keep out of it.

Nell: Susan is his sister. He is naturally protective.

Me: Any sign of Squawk?

Nell: You are not going to believe this.

Me: What?

Nell: Susan has asked Poppy if we can invite Squawk to our Valentine’s luncheon tomorrow.

Me: Luncheon?

Nell: She says she needs to get to know him. He might be a bad Beefy but he is still her half brother, just like Terry.

Me: Good for Susan. She is such a kind seagull.

Nell: And Sally supported her.

Me: Did she now?

Nell: Yes. Terry is most unhappy about it.

Me: Isn’t he invited?

Nell: Of course he is. That’s not the point.

Me: No. Sorry.
