LFR May 8 Number 509

Welcome to the Laws Family Register. 

He woke suddenly to Emma shaking him.

          “Dad, Wake up.” she said gently, “You've been asleep for hours its past eleven o'clock, and I want to ask you something before I go to bed, and something else, I've a message for you from Mum.”

          “What is it?” He said, rubbing his eyes, and as he did so, he saw that Emma was in her dressing gown and ready for bed.

          “Firstly, Mum says her train will get into Tregorran Junction at ten o’clock tomorrow, and we're not to be late, --- or there'll be trouble!” she then added with a little giggle. “Just joking, Dad.”

“Secondly I've been upstairs watching the river and there's lots of lights, can you come & explain what they all mean.”    

          “Ok! Let's go and see.” Robert replied as he turned to follow Emma who was already climbing the narrow stairs to her room at the top of the house.

At one end of her room, was a bow-fronted window that looked out over the river in all directions.

          “Now what am I supposed to be looking at.” He said, making himself comfortable on the window box.

          “Look there.” Emma said, pointing into the blackness, do you see it?”

          Robert looked and saw nothing unfamiliar. “Just the red & green navigational lights showing the channel”

          “No” Emma said, “Look there, higher up, someone's flashing a light.” and then she pointed seawards. “Look someone is flashing back.”

          “I do believe you're right." Robert said, “I wonder who they are, and what they are up to.” As the light twinkled from the clifftop, across the inky black water.

          “Right young lady, time you got some sleep.” He pulled back the blankets and added. “I’ll pop in later and tuck you in.” Robert said.

When he did some 15 minutes later, Emma was sound asleep.
