On the bank Pik started to bawl. ’ Jelly called. ’ Gino voice was snagged with fear. Jelly’s heart thumped. All her instincts told her to turn back—back to where the Christmas lights beckoned and her mum and dad were laughing, unaware that she had slipped out into the night. But, despite her fear, something pulled her forward, on towards the thing in the water. She had to see it for herself. She climbed up onto the rock to gaze into the dark water on the other side. There in the shadowy depths was a pale, pale child with glass-like eyes that stared up at her, and long white hair that billowed like clouds.
Pik said. ’ ‘Give it some more,’ Gino said. ’ ‘Not too many,’ Jelly said. ’ The angel shoved the grapes into its mouth as quickly as Jelly could peel them. Gino and Pik watched, stifling fits of giggles. When they laughed the angel would hide its face against Jelly’s chest and she would have to coax it out again with another peeled grape. She was beginning to feel like a mother ape. ‘We’d better go soon,’ said Gino, suddenly serious. ’ She stroked the angel’s hair. ’ Jelly pulled out some bandages and Dettol from the plastic bag and looked around the shed for something she could use as a splint.
No,’ said Gino. ‘I mean, yes. Dad shouted at me for being out at night without asking them, but they think we were just at the playground. ’ He paused. ’ ‘Of course she will,’ said Jelly, but her heart felt squeezed. ‘What about the angel? We didn’t leave it any food or water,’ she said. ‘We’ll go tomorrow morning,’ Gino mumbled. ’ But Jelly wasn’t so sure. It was such a little thing. So small and skinny and afraid. And now she didn’t know who she was more worried about: Nonna or the angel. At least Nonna had people with her.
