Blindfolds and Bacon

Me: Is that Poppy playing Cheeky Animals with Dave?

Nell: Yes, and she just made a fresh batch of scones.

Me: What happened?

Nell: Sally asked Knitwear Wolf to take Poppy and Terry to see Squawk.

Me: Where is Squawk?

Nell: In a secret location. The breakthrough came when Knitwear Wolf tried to blindfold Poppy.

Me: Why did he do that? Is he the Baddie?

Nell: Don’t be silly. Sally can’t risk anyone knowing where Squawk is, so she asked Knitwear Wolf to make sure they couldn’t see where they were going.

Me: Poppy won’t have liked that.

Nell: Terry was fine about it, but Poppy shouted: ‘No!’ and went wild.

Me: Nobody likes a blindfold, Nell.

Nell: It turns out that Poppy was blindfolded and tied up for days.

Me: So she never saw her attackers?

Nell: No. They put headphones on her, too. She had to listen to the Bee Gees non stop.

Me: Oh dear. Poppy is more of a heavy metal fan.

Nell: That’s not the point.

Me: So, Poppy can’t really tell us much?

Nell: She knows there were birds around as she felt feathers and claws when she was being clipped.

Me: How dreadful. What about Terry?

Nell: He can’t remember anything. Apparently, one minute he was on his way to meet me in the field and the next thing he knew he was in a hut with Poppy and the bacon.

Me: He was probably drugged.

Nell: Maybe.

Me: Why didn’t they take the bacon?

Nell: I have no idea.

Me: And what happened when Poppy confronted Squawk?

Nell: Indeed.

Me: Aren’t you going to tell me?

Nell: I have a Zoom session with my Pilates group. Chat later.

Me: But, Nell.

Nell: You know the importance of regular exercise.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
