D’arby was puffed when he got home because he’d run some of the way (at least he’d tried to run all the downhill bits). As he approached the house he was relieved to see that there were still lights on.
When Fanta heard the door opening she came to look. Fanta got a fright when she first saw D’arby, until she realised he was wearing a disguise. Then she started laughing, but she soon became serious again.
“What happened?” asked Fanta.
“Syafika started vomiting so she went to Anthony’s place to stay the night” said D’arby.
“What? Why? Why didn’t she go home?” asked Fanta.
“I don’t know. She told me to go home” said D’arby.
“How did she seem when she told you that?” asked Fanta.
“Bossy” said D’arby.
Fanta was quiet for a few seconds. D’arby was relieved to see that Fanta didn’t look worried.
“I think she will be fine” said Fanta eventually. “We can track her down in the morning”
“But what if Anthony poisoned her?” asked D’arby.
“Why would he do that?” asked Fanta.
“I don’t know. Maybe he is a psychopath” said D’arby.
“Maybe he is, but why would he poison Syafika so publicly?” asked Fanta. “Don’t panic. Just go to sleep and rest so you are ready for whatever happens tomorrow”.
D’arby thought there must be more to say but couldn’t think of anything so he just said “Ok” and went to take off his disguise.
