What is Going On?

Nell: Don’t try and stop us.

Me: It’s a bad idea, Nell.

Nell: David and I are going to the island. Look at him, he’s bowed down with worry.

Me: He’s standing on the small table again.

Nell: He needs to be by the window.

Me: Yes, but not on the table.

Nell: His sister and his fiancé are missing. The poor animal is distraught.

Me: They’re not exactly missing. We’re fairly sure they’re at the Burgh Island Hotel.

Nell: Jim the Farm Dog isn’t happy.

Me: A farmer’s life isn’t an easy one.

Nell: No. The Beefies say a pretty chocolate brown Labrador was seen having dinner at the Burgh Island hotel with a lion.

Me: That lion is a proper gigolo.

Nell: That’s not the point. First Sally now Harriet.

Me: Exactly. The cheek of it.

Nell: What are she and Sally doing there?

Me: Harriet left a message telling us not to worry and she’ll be in touch.

Nell: That was yesterday.

Me: She’s probably busy.

Nell: Doing what?

Me: Having dinner with lions.

Nell: We don’t even know who the lion is.

Me: It’s obviously Lionel King.

Nell: There’s more than one lion, you know.

Me: Not living at the Burgh Island Hotel with a penchant for a pretty lady, especially one who’s out of bounds.

Nell: What do you mean?

Me: Lionel enjoys causing mayhem. Ask Rupert.

Nell: What’s Rupert got to do with this?

Me: Lionel is constantly trying to steal you away from him.

Nell: Nonsense.

Me: You know it and I know it. I hope this isn’t all about you, Nell.

Nell: About me?

Me: Maybe Lionel is trying to make you jealous?

Nell: Ridiculous.

Me: And maybe he’s succeeding?

Nell: Sally and Harriet wouldn’t be involved in that.

Me: No. Sorry.
