Happy to be Home

Me: It’s so good to have Kev back again.

Nell: Yes.

Me: The first thing he wanted to do was go to the beach.

Nell: We were happy to go with him.

Me: He needed to breathe some sea air after being locked in that horrible cell.

Nell: Now, Sally has asked me to go through some of the things we discussed.

Me: If you want to remind me that I’m not supposed to tell anyone that Kev’s secretly working undercover for Sally there’s no need to.

Nell: Really? Isn’t that what you’ve just done?

Me: My followers aren’t going to tell anyone.

Nell: Are you sure about that?

Me: Yes. We’re a tight knit community. We’ll only discuss it amongst ourselves.

Nell: I hope so.

Me: I had to let them know Kev’s innocent. I can’t have anyone thinking he would do wrong.

Nell: But it’s absolutely vital that the Baddies think Kev is capable of stealing from us.

Me: I don’t really understand why.

Nell: It’s best you know as little as possible.

Me: Sally said you were a target.

Nell: Yes, because of my royal connections.

Me: And Sally knew they were planning to steal your tiara and pearls so Kev hid them but made it look like he’d stolen them.

Nell: Yes.

Me: But what about the Stuffed Animals?

Nell: Kev wanted to draw attention to himself.

Me: Why?

Nell: In the hope that the Baddies would approach him to work for them.

Me: And did they?

Nell: I wouldn’t worry about that now.

Me: It’s Valentine’s Day today, Nell.

Nell: Yes, I know.

Me: Did you get any cards?

Nell: I might have done.

Me: Who from?

Nell: Never you mind. Just go and cuddle your Valentine and be thankful he’s home.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
