Encouraging links between students and school staff around the globe
Emily Wild checked her watch. ‘We’d better start back soon. It’ll be dark in an hour.’
The three friends – and Drift, of course – had rowed across the bay from Castle Key and spent the day exploring the tiny island, with its deserted coves and ruined monastery. They had brought a picnic and made a campfire and swum from the sandy beach.
‘Yeah, it’s definitely time to go,’ Jack said, giving the biscuit tin a shake. ‘We’ve run out of food.’
Emily was helping Scott load the bags into the rowing boat when Drift looked up from digging under a pile of seaweed and gave an excited bark. She ran to his side to see. ‘Drift’s found something!’ she called to the boys, picking up an old bottle and turning it over in her hands. The glass was smooth and thick and green. ‘There’s something inside it,’ she added.
‘Lemonade?’ Jack asked hopefully.
Ignoring his brother, Scott leaned over Emily’s shoulder. ‘It looks like a little roll of paper.’
