LFR May 14 Number 515

Welcome to the Laws Family Register. 


“Ok” said Emily Brown and with an audible “pop” both she and the cottage disappeared, and Robert found himself back on the steps with the cat, which looked up at him, gave him a cheshire-cat smile, said “Meow” and disappeared gradually before his eyes starting at the tail, till all that was left was the smile.

Robert returned to the harbour, met up with Emma and returned to the cottage and his wife, later that evening Robert led Emma down to the car park, opened up their trusty ragtop landrover and set off for the church, and sure enough as the church clock struck midnight out popped Emily Brown with Rufus at her side, hr opened the back of the truck and they clambered in.

 “Ok, said Robert Where do I find Mariah?’  

‘They are in a barn between Penhargard and Helland’ said Rufus, ‘but beware the farmer is not a happy bunny’. So when we get near it, Emily and I will go for them, we can move swiftly even in the dark.’

It was a strange journey with Rufus looking over Roberts shoulder with his whiskers tickling Roberts left ear every time one of them moved, as they bounced through the lanes. After half an hour they came into Bodmin, just as they crossed the main road
A police car pulled out of a side road blocking their path, they came to a halt as two large policemen approached the truck.

“Where’ you going?’ demanded one, as the other peered into the dark interior of the truck.

“Tredirrick” replied Robert ‘going out to see to some sheep’ lambs y know alwas come at night,’ Emily Brown pretended to be a sheepdog growling and barking in the back, which seemed to placate him.

As they backed off he said ‘Escaped convict from the prison been seen, an’ that man-eating tiger been seen too, you just watch yourself, y’ hear.

‘Ok, nite’ replied Robert. As he moved off away they waved him though their roadblock.
