Sara Wins

Me: Harriet seems on edge this morning.

Nell: How was the house viewing yesterday?

Me: It’s a definite potential.

Nell: Nice views of Kingsbridge town?

Me: How would you know that?

Nell: Just guessing.

Me: Guessing?

Nell: Views are important to you.

Me: When Kev and I arrived at the house there was a seagull on the roof.

Nell: It’s Kingsbridge. There are seagulls everywhere.

Me: It looked remarkably like Miss Penny Lane.

Nell: They all look the same to me.

Me: She ducked down when she saw us.

Nell: Beefies are sly.

Me: She wasn’t a Beefy.

Nell: They’re recruiting females now, you know.

Me: Another odd thing happened when we were in the garden.

Nell: A Beefy attack?

Me: No. A helicopter flew over.

Nell: That’s not odd. They fly over all the time. We’re by the sea. It’ll be the RNLI rescuing someone, I expect.

Me: It wasn’t the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.

Nell: How do you know?

Me: It was being flown by a chocolate Labrador.

Nell: How on earth could you have seen that?

Me: I knew it.

Nell: It’ll be the Royal National Labrador Institution then.

Me: It was Harriet.

Nell: Don’t be silly. Harriet was here all the time.

Me: I thought you were going to say Harriet can’t fly helicopters.

Nell: No. She can fly helicopters. Poppy taught her and she got her licence recently.

Me: Why didn’t you tell me?

Nell: You’d only have worried.

Me: So, what were they doing there?

Nell: Who?

Me: Harriet, Miss Penny Lane and Henry and Horst.

Nell: How did you know Henry and Horst were there too?

Me: They’re not going to miss out on a surveillance mission, are they?

Nell: Okay, you’re right. We wanted to see the house.

Me: I win. Sorry.
