“Sophie, don’t cry she must be here somewhere.” Felicity had an idea and walked over to her own drawer. “You can have my Pink and Purple Pup until we find yours. Oh, hang on a minute; she’s got pushed right to the back.” Felicity stretched her arm in as far as she could. Her fingers found its soft material but, in so doing, nudged it and it fell down the back of the drawer. “Bother!”
Sophie took a deep, ragged breath and joined her sister. “Perhaps she’s fallen down into the drawer below,” she suggested, pulling open the one underneath, and saw Pink and Purple Pup falling down behind that drawer. This kept happening with each drawer they pulled out until all the drawers had been removed.
“Sophie! You'll never guess what? Here’s your pup too!” shrieked Felicity, pulling both toys out with a flourish.
“Oh thank you! Sophie exclaimed, while hugging and kissing her pup - too delighted at being reunited with her to wonder how on earth she’d got there.
“Oops, so much for not making a mess though,” Felicity said, surveying all the drawers strewn haphazardly on the floor around them.
“We’d better get this lot put back before a teacher sees it,” Sophie said, bending to pick up a drawer. As she did so, she noticed a book hidden in the shadows under the unit and took it out to show her sister.
“It’s been here a while by the look of it. It’s covered with dust!” Felicity took it for a closer inspection and gently wiped the grime from its bindings, revealing a plain brown leather cover.
