Saffron felt much more in touch after her long chat with Rowan. She caught up with all the news from her old school. In truth, it all sounded a bit tame compared with the life she was leading now.

It had been strange to go through the routine of connection without doing the dialling herself. It had also been shocking to suddenly realise she was talking to a fluffy bird, instead of into a mouthpiece, when she was deeply involved in conversation with her friend.

Mobo had eventually started to fidget, keen to get back to the nest, so she had said goodbye and given him a signal to cut the connection. Impatience was one function most people wouldn’t like in their telephones, but she wasn’t going to whinge.

When she joined the others she found Athol crawling along on his hands and knees. He swore that he had found the tracks of a long-nosed potoroo.
