Why, if I were to tell you some of the things I舗ve got up to in my time舒舗 舖Please don舗t,舗 Nova interrupted. 舖I mean, please don舗t bother yourself. You should save your energy. 舗 舖Of course. 舗 舖Maybe you should go and get a cardie? 舗 Brilliant! Nova congratulated herself on her ploy. While Miss Eve was off getting herself a cardigan, Nova would be out of there faster than a rat up a drainpipe. Perfect! 舖No thanks. I舗m just fine,舗 replied Miss Eve. She linked arms with Nova and set a brisk pace for the door.
Or maybe they couldn舗t care less one way or the other. We picked up smooth stones and skimmed them across the rough water as the storm bashed at us. It was better than going home. Sooner or later, we舗d have to turn round and head back. If we were lucky, Dad would be round the pub and we舗d be able to change our clothes without ructions. If we were lucky. And once again, it舗d be left to me to cook up some pasta or some bacon, beans and toast for dinner 舑 which was OK as long as we could eat our dinner in peace before Dad got home.
Nova? Nova, stop it. What舗s the matter? 舗 Mum ran in from the kitchen. 舖What舗s happened? 舗 Liam shouted above the din, fading out to disappear altogether. Nova舗s head was spinning and she felt sick. Was she going to faint? Was this what it was like to be on the verge of fainting? Her heart was trembling and her blood was racing and everything around her was moving in and out of her vision like a telly moving back and forth on roller skates. Nova took a deep breath, then another, still staring into the space where Liam had just been.
