Jonathan Makes A Point

Me: Jonathan, Poppy and the puppies have been by the front gate for ages. Are they waiting for someone?

Nell: Diversionary Tactics.

Me: They’re just chatting.

Nell: Harriet isn’t. She’s lost her voice.

Me: You know what I mean.

Nell: Look behind them at the bird bath.

Me: It’s Walter.

Nell: Exactly.

Me: They don’t want Walter listening to their plans.

Nell: They do.

Me: I don’t understand.

Nell: We were discussing Walter at Morning Thoughts when Jonathan made an excellent point.

Me: How come I wasn’t invited?

Nell: You’re not part of Poppy’s Protection Team.

Me: Neither is Jonathan.

Nell: Yes, he is. In fact he’s going over to the Big House later to choose his hat from The Cat’s dressing up box.

Me: Why can’t I have a hat?

Nell: Do you want to know Jonathan’s point or not?

Me: I do.

Nell: Jonathan said we need to know if Walter is really a spy for the Beefies or just Naturally Curious.

Me: Naturally Curious?

Nell: Some people are.

Me: I think I might be one of them.

Nell: I think you might be right.

Me: So, how are they going to find out?

Nell: Someone is going to go to the beach alone at exactly 3pm.

Me: That’s a dreadful idea.

Nell: If they’re approached by a Beefy in whatever shape or form we will know Walter is a traitor.

Me: What do you mean by whatever shape or form?

Nell: Beefies are masters of disguise.

Me: I don’t think a long black wig or a fake moustache is going to fool anyone. Who is the someone?

Nell: That’s what they’re deciding now.

Me: Dave has made himself awfully small.

Nell: He thinks he might be too big to be chosen.

Me: I hope he’s right. Sorry.
