.oOOo.

‘Wiggins, they’re not allowed to hold us for more than a day without charges.’

‘Says who?’

‘I read it somewhere.’

READ it?!? Since when can YOU read?’

‘Remember that time when Mr Holmes had me run errands for Doc Watson when he was all banged up?’

‘Yeah.’

‘All Doc Watson wanted was someone to read him the newspaper. I couldn’t, so he taught me. Now I can read almost anything.’

‘Why did you keep it a secret?’

‘You know how the others get. I woulda never lived it down.’

‘...Fred, when we get outta gaol, would you read to me?’



.oOOo.

Well done, Fred. Street kids who can read? They won't be expecting that!

Mmm...I wonder if teaching the kids some basic medical aid would be a good idea or just an incentive to not be very careful.
