Jailed but Defiant

Me: You and Poppy look rather down in the dumps. Has there been any news?

Nell: Of sorts, and you’re not going to believe this.

Me: Is it about Kev? Is he okay?

Nell: Yes and No, not really.

Me: Just tell me.

Nell: Have you seen the Daily Growl this morning?

Me: No. I’ve been writing.

Nell: I don’t know how they got hold of the photos but they’re on the front page.

Me: Show me.

Nell: Come downstairs and have a quick look at them with a nice cup of sweet tea and some hot buttered toast.

Me: I don’t want any toast and I don’t like sugar in my tea.

Nell: You might need it.

Me: Oh, alright.

Nell: David is waiting in the living room to give you physical and moral support.

Me: Goodness me. Where are they?

Nell: Here.

Me: Oh no. Kev looks like a criminal and he’s in a horrible heartless cell.

Nell: Yes. It is rather nasty. On the upside he looks more annoyed than worried.

Me: Yes, he does look a bit defiant.

Nell: He definitely isn’t sorry.

Me: No.

Nell: Unlike The Cat.

Me: Is The Cat locked up too?

Nell: No, it’s been allowed home but it’s still helping the police with their enquiries.

Me: Why is Kev still in there then?

Nell: He isn’t helping the police with their enquiries at all.

Me: You don’t think he’s tapping his nose at them, do you?

Nell: It’s a distinct possibility.

Me: We have to get him out.

Nell: Yes. Henry and Horst are on the case.

Me: Henry and Horst?

Nell: They used to be solicitors in a former life. Woodlouse and Woodlouse.

Me: I’ve heard it all now.

Nell: I said you wouldn’t believe it.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
