She when to the hob and turned it on to full, then turned to her left and reached down into the back of the cupboard. She groaned as she heaved a heavy chrome pot to the sink. She filled the pot with water, placed it upon the stove.

Once Freddie had eaten most of his meal he sat down his cutlery and sat up rigidly in his chair.'I've got something to tell you' He said quietly.
