The Crisis Is Over

Me: Well, this all looks lovely and peaceful.

Nell: Yes. The crisis is over. All swords have been put aside.

Me: Tell me again what happened.

Nell: As you know I had reached the limit of my patience with Poppy as had John the Doberman it seems.

Me: Understandable.

Nell: I went into the living room and was about to give Poppy a piece of my mind when John marched in.

Me: Gosh.

Nell: He picked Poppy up and took her outside.

Me: Didn’t she struggle?

Nell: Of course.

Me: Thank goodness she didn’t have her sword.

Nell: Yes. David made himself extra heavy so there was no chance of her getting it.

Me: Darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy. What happened outside?

Nell: We don’t know but words were spoken and truths were told.

Me: Were kisses exchanged?

Nell: Possibly, anyway the next thing we know is Poppy has apologised to Miss Maple and she and John are engaged again.

Me: Wonderful news.

Nell: Yes, and just in time to celebrate Thanksgiving.

Me: We aren’t from the United States, Nell.

Nell: I know but we have plenty to be thankful for and any excuse for roast turkey has to be embraced.

Me: What about Timothy?

Nell: He’s gone on retreat. It’s far too dangerous for him here.

Me: I’m so glad Poppy is back to her usual self.

Nell: Yes, especially as Miss Maple will be leaving soon.

Me: Why?

Nell: You’re not going to believe this.

Me: I just might.

Nell: Miss Maple is a famous detective.

Me: I knew her name rang a bell.

Nell: Apparently a friend of hers has called on her to help with a mysterious case.

Me: How intriguing.

Nell: That’s what I said.

Me: No, you said ‘mysterious’.

Nell: Enough.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
