Colin lay still and fell into a fitful half sleep. All of a sudden there was a knock on the door and Colin woke up with a start,
“Come In,” he said weakly. The door opened with a jerk and Mary wandered in pathetically with Judith the maid following behind.
“Hello again,” she said.
“I thought I told you to get out!” he bellowed furiously.
“Judith told me to come and say sorry for using gum language.” As soon as Mary said that Lenordo’s carriage rolled into the driveway. Lenordo hopped out of the carriage and into the home but they didn’t hear him. But a figure stormed up the stairs and smacked the door down!
“Who stole my tiger skin coat!?” said Lenordo, his eyes in fire.
“It was Colin,” Mary stuttered staring into Lenordo’s flaming eyes. “He wanted it because he was cold,”
“You wait here boy!” said Lenordo in a low growling voices. “I’m going to get my cane!”
“Please no, oh please please no. I don’t want to be slated,” begged Colin.
“Well too bad boy!” said Lenordo with a wicked smile on his face!
