Meanwhile in Laverstone
Jenny knocked, looking down at her phone while she waited for Penny to open the door. Three pages of FaceSpace updates later, she knocked again. Still no reply. “Oh, come on, girl. We're going to be late.” She tapped out a message on her phone and his send. In the house she heard the ping of Penny's phone. She leaned down to the letterbox and pushed it open, setting her mouth over the gap. “Penny. Hurry up.”
Bobbing her head down, she peered through the slit. A cat Jenny didn't recognise stared at her from half way up the stairs but she could see no other evidence of her friend. “Puss puss puss?” What she'd do if the cat came to her she had no idea. It wasn't as if she could stick her hand through the letterbox and pet it. It was a nice cat. Mostly black with a white patch under the chin as if it had been caught stealing milk. Cute. Black tail. Red socks.
Jenny looked again.
