Signs and portents

As we walked away from school this afternoon, Pearl suddenly stopped dead.  “Oh!  I was going to ask my teacher whether I could take my book home to finish what I was writing…”

I raised an eyebrow.  Asking for homework?  On the first Monday of the school year?  “Off you go, then, he’ll still be there.”

She scampered away, and soon returned happily clutching her writing book.

Looks like it should be a good year.
