The case of the missing R3

24 Jun

Another tooth, another letter, another treasure.

Second missing tooth in this big grin! As usual on Bible Study night. What is it with these kids and losing teeth on the evening that I’m busy!!!??

Nonetheless, the swashbuckler was available enough and did come to deliver his treasure in the form of a few coins and a half burned letter.

Oh the delight of the next morning of finding the letter and the money. Running to the bedroom at an unwanted hour of the morning, shouting “look look, the swashbuckler came and left me some treasure. R17!!” … and the irresistible desire to say ‘Nooo, I have given you R20!!’ but settling for a “How generous of him! You’re sure you found everything??”

Oh well, who cares! The fantasy dream is still very much alive. Too soon they realised that the handwriting looks quite familiar, the burnt look of the paper is a déja-vu and reality strikes.

Bitter-sweet.

    It must be so hard to resist the urge to say something about the missing R3, well done on maintaining character 🙂

    I LOVE that! A pirate! Fabulous idea! And the burnt paper is such a nice touch. I’m sure Killian just loves that. It must be right up his street. Congratulations sweet boy on losing that tooth.
