Iona was just reading a story to keep baby Yasmin and Tabatha quiet. ‘And Little Red Ridinghood said "what big teeth you have, Grandma"’, she read, when Raffay excitedly burst into the room.
‘Iona, the postman has just left a letter for you! Who on earth would want to write to you? Come on, OPEN IT!!!’
'It doesn't look like a letter. I think it is a card'
‘Wow! What a beautiful card. Look!!! It’s me and Saskia! It’s an Easter Card from my friend Saskia!’
‘Let’s see!’ Hanna and Raffay crowd round Iona to have a better look. 'That's a great photo', Hanna agrees.
‘Let me read what it says’. Raffay reads: ‘Happy Easter Iona , love from Saskia.’ ‘Hm. This Saskia is obviously flavour of the month!’
'You are just jealous, Raffay, because no one writes to you!' says Iona. 'You probably don't have any friends who can write!'
The girls put the card onto the book shelf. ‘It looks great there, Iona’, Hanna says. ‘How nice of Saskia to send you a card!’
‘I think she is my best friend,' says Iona. We’ll go and have lunch together again very soon!’
Raffay mutters: ‘LUNCH! I don't understand girls,’ and jumps on his bike.
‘Get off that bike this instance,’ says Hanna sternly. ‘You know that you are not allowed to ride it in the house!’
And off he goes...
