Another Idea

I had such a lovely day with Sofia yesterday.

We went over the back fields exploring. I've never been that far away before, it's over the back gardens at the back of us, across the road and through another set of gardens before you are there.

I remember Daddy saying once when he was little he'd go exploring over there, I can see the attraction. Half big fields, lots of trees and as the motorway yesterday was closed because of a fallen bridge it as all shrouded in quietness.

We both lay and sunbathed amongst the wild grass and meadow flowers, the sun beating down on us. We both fell asleep.

When we woke up we went to have a little wander and see what was happening on the motorway, I've been on one before when Daddy brought me home but I'd never seen one from a distance, eerie.

We then took a slow wander home, not really saying much just enjoying each others company.

I hated to say goodnight but it was late by the time we got home and we was both hungry.

I was enjoying reliving our time together however...


...it looks like River has another idea.

Pssting At Me From Within The Foliage

"Psst!"

I quickly scanned the garden. Nothing

"PSST!"

It came again, this time my hearing hadn't quiet settled to resting to I was able to pin point the sound to somewhere in the direction of the Peace Garden.

"PSST, PSST, PSST, PSST, PSST!"

Quick as a dash my eyes spotted Sofia pssting at me from within the foliage.

I quickly ran over to her, smile on my face.

"I've missed you, where you been?" Before I could think caution the words were out my mouth. Sofia smiled back at me.

"Me to." She bent her head slightly to hide an independent smile. I smiled out and in, it was lovely to see her.

"Are you OK, I've been worried about you."

No filter this morning for me.

"Yes I'm fine, I just needed to keep a low profile for a while, till some of the heat died down."

I nodded, "Did you hear about George?"

Sofia nodded a sad look over her face. "Yes Mogsie came and told us. He was a nice fellow."

I nodded, "A really good friend to me."

"To all." Sofia chimed in we both nodded a silence joining the wind bristling in the trees.

Sofia broke the silence, "I'm sorry if you were worried but things were getting to out of control with Flash and all that."

"I know, it's been very quiet recently."

"A temporary truce I think Mogsie said, out of respect for George. Chameleon came and delivered the message to Mogsie and Mogsie came and told us."

"That would explain it." I wasn't sure what to say, I suddenly felt very self conscious.

"Doublay's decided he needs to get completely out of the district, did you know."

I shook my head, my lips not moving but inside frustrated, one of the potential new Coven of 3 now gone for sure. I know Ginger Cat was on the case and their were still Theo and me but we needed as many witches familiars as possible to come and help. I still didn't say anything.

"Come, follow me, let's have some fun, we've not done that for a while." Her smile warmed.

"Come on then, what do you have in mind?"

"Whatever comes along."

With that Sofia was off over the back wall, me quickly behind.

There's A Difference Between Knowing Something...

I see someone who is need of some good sunbathing tips.


Never sit outside directly in the sun without protection, I thought everyone knew that.


But then again I guess there's a difference between knowing something and putting in into practice.

"River, out of the sun!"
