Me: It seems all wrong to be down on the beach without Kev.
Nell: Yes, but I’m afraid it’s far too risky for him to be out and about at the moment.
Me: Even with the false beard and sunglasses?
Nell: He’s not wearing those anymore.
Nell: There was a photo of him in disguise in the Daily Growl this morning. Didn’t you see it?
Me: No. It really must be someone very close to home. How else could they have taken a photo?
Nell: It isn’t a real photo. It was photoshopped. He’s wearing that stripy t-shirt again.
Me: But they still had to know about the beard and sunglasses.
Nell: True. Well spotted.
Me: Don’t you mean striped?
Nell: I shall ignore that.
Me: I wonder who did the photoshopping.
Nell: Several Beefies wearing binoculars have been seen circling our property so I’m guessing they are behind it.
Nell: Yes, we’ve had to move him twice already today.
Me: Where is he now?
Nell: Best not to tell you until we’ve tracked down the culprit.
Me: We know it’s A Friend.
Nell: Yes, but we don’t know who A Friend is.
Me: It’s obvious to me.
Nell: Kindly stop accusing Lionel. He’s doing everything he can to help.
Me: Is Kev hiding on Burgh Island?
Nell: Why do you think that?
Me: You keep glancing over there.
Nell: It’s a beautiful island.
Me: He wouldn’t be staying in Lionel’s suite, would he?
Nell: Stop speculating please.
Me: What are you and Harriet looking for in that seaweed, by the way?
Nell: Jewellery, of course. We’re always on the lookout for clues.
Me: Oh, I thought you might have been doing your usual sniffari.
Nell: Now is not the time for sniffaris.
Me: No. Sorry.
