…THE ISLAND OF ROMBOWLA AND THE RACKLESNORG.
Arlo Twittle part 4.
THE STRANGE MRS. BUTCHER.
It was a warm and sunny day in the middle of July. The school holidays had started and as usual, Arlo had found himself packed off for the day to Mrs. Butcher.
He walked up the broken, cobbled path to the front door, rang the bell and waited. Four cats were fast asleep on the windowsill. Others, he noticed, were charging around the front garden chasing butterflies.
Hearing Mrs. Butcher slip slapping up the corridor in her slippers, he turned back to the door, which opened with a loud creak.
“Hello Arlo, come in, come in,” she said pulling the door further open.
How does she do that? He thought. It always surprised him how she knew. It wasn’t as if she could see him.
He gave up trying to work out the “how’s-and-whys”, stepped in to the hall and headed along the tiny corridor to the kitchen. Mrs. Butcher slip-slap-shuffled behind.
“So, what shall we do today,” she asked.
Arlo shrugged his shoulders and shook his head.
“Don’t know. Well, we will have to think of something,” she added as she leant on the table. “How about a game of snap?” Arlo sat at the table while she went off to get the cards.
