Me: Why are you lying on that hard mat?

Nell: I’m guarding the back door.

Me: Harriet is looking worried.

Nell: She has every reason to be.

Me: Why?

Nell: You’re not going to believe this.

Me: I just might.

Nell: Kev is a wanted man.

Me: He’s greatly loved.

Nell: Not like that. My friend Dorothy says there are posters all over the town.

Me: Of Kev?

Nell: Yes. Apparently they are offering a reward for any information on his whereabouts.

Me: How much?

Nell: I have no idea and that’s not the point.

Me: I’m not sure hiding in his studio in the back garden is the safest place for Kev to be at the moment.

Nell: He’s wearing a false beard and sunglasses.

Me: He still looks like Kev.

Nell: It’ll have to do until we find an alternative. Remember no visitors are allowed in the back garden however innocent they might appear to be.

Me: So, no giant stuffed rabbits then?

Nell: I worry about you sometimes. I really do.

Me: Talking of stuffed toys you know the Stuffed Tiger is probably listening to everything we’re saying, don’t you?

Nell: That’s why we’re not discussing Kev in the living room. Didn’t you read your notes?

Me: What notes?

Nell: Sally has issued everyone with notes.

Me: I didn’t get any.

Nell: Check your iBone.

Me: Oh my goodness. Someone has sent me a photo of the Wanted poster.

Nell: Let me check my emails. Yes, I have it too.

Me: Who’s the sender?

Nell: A Friend.

Me: Same here.

Nell: We need to inform Sally and Miss Maple at once.

Me: Call me suspicious but I don’t think A Friend actually is one.

Nell: Of course not. Go and get Sally right now.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
