Ann was doing her morning run when she thought about the letter. Maybe it was just some trick being played by some kid at school.

“What’s the time?” Ann asked a lady in her early thirties.

“About ten past seven,” replied the lady.

“And the date?”

“19th of March.”


She ran down the street at full speed and turned into the back lane where she planned to take the emergency shortcut. As she pelted down the lane she jumped over a bin, ducked under two clothes lines and kicked down a really high bin and continued running. At the end of the lane there was a two metre high fence which she leaped at full speed and hoisted herself over. She landed in the swimming pool where her mother was doing laps. SPLASH! She landed next to her mother.

“OH…Hi mum,” she said in a sorry kind of tone.

“What on earth, Miss,” her mother asked crankily.


“To your room and pack to leave for J.T.S. NOW!”

“Yes mum, sorry mum, didn’t mean it aunty,” Ann mumbled.

“DON’T CALL ME THAT!” she raged.

“Ok,” sighed Ann as she climbed out of the water.
