sitting by the baleful bale, but to go to Granny's Attic Tearoom, so, after making the horses - (AND the donkey), comfortable for the night, that was where they headed. "Now, tell us who that girl was" demanded Amanda, once the tea was served. "She's one of those awful girls who go out on Henry's cruiser. I've seen her with Henry lots of times." answered Emilia quietly. They all looked at each other in horror.

But this violence?
"Her name is Svetlana and she also goes around with Gregorio - or whatever he calls himself"
"I think Gregorio is a Russian spy,"said Andrea thoughtfully, "He really is shifty AND he's taught Boris how to smoke - black tobacco too!" "Well" said Lindsay practically, "I can see why under age smoking could be a shifty occupation, but what other things has he done to make you suspect him? " " He is always hanging about Lord de Woodford and questioning him as to the whereabouts of his wife", Emilia said - she was really quite a nosy child and knew the staff at Foxe's Fynde quite well, and she would drop by in the hope of getting spare apples or carrots for the ponies. "Well, what is she doing?" cut in Amanda" "I haven't a clue" said Emilia airily "Sometimes he says she is up in London and sometimes he says nothing and looks really miserable." "He used to work for MI5 a while ago"chipped in Andrea, "The most well-known secret of Greconville! No-one is meant to know but everybody does" and then she grabbed the last sandwich and stuffed it in her mouth.
