‘This is great,’ she thought. ‘Every time I do something today, it feels a little bit more like I’m a hero in my own story.’
Ellis climbed down from the chair and started to explain everything that had happened so far to Doodah. Which was not an easy thing to do.
To begin with, Davey started with his ‘Pardons?’ and ‘Are yous?’ again.
‘And then I heard Falcon Boy’s voice,’ said Ellis.
‘Pardon?’ said Davey.
‘Falcon Boy,’ said Ellis, pointing at Falcon Boy.
‘Are you?’ said Davey.
Falcon Boy went to say something. Ellis put her hand on his arm. She smiled.
‘Pop stars like you have lots of big jobs to do,’ Ellis said pointedly.
‘Do we?’ sniggered Davey. ‘Really big jobs?’ Donny sniggered as well.
‘You do,’ said Ellis unperturbed, ‘and do you know what your biggest job of all is?’
Davey was sniggering too much to answer. He shook his head.
‘Your biggest job is to inspire all the children in the world to be the very best they can possibly ever be and not,’ said Ellis firmly, ‘to be as stupid and annoying as you are being now.’
Davey stopped sniggering. Donny didn’t but Davey shot him a fierce look.
‘She’s right, you know,’ said Deirdre, suitably stung on behalf of global pop stars everywhere by the image that Davey was currently projecting. ‘Will you both please just pack it in and listen to what she has to say?’
‘Pardon?’ Davey couldn’t resist one more. Deirdre looked fierce enough to eat the pop star whole; bones, boots and all.
‘Sorry Deirdre,’ said Davey and Donny together. ‘Sorry Ellis.’
