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. It rocked gently under the water, a thin white dress caught up around its knees. And it had wings. Great white feathered wings like a pelican’s, one of them bunched up and tangled in river rubbish. Jelly felt her heart slide sideways. ’ She realised what she was seeing. ’ She heard them stop. ’ Gino called. Jelly looked back at the creature. It was still there.
Jelly’s dreaming was interrupted by a voice calling from below. She peered through the apricot leaves and saw her cousins, Gino and Pik, staring up at her. Pik was chewing on his fingers as usual, his sooty black hair sticking up everywhere. Gino’s legs stuck out of his shorts like chopsticks. Every summer he shot up like a bean sprout, and now he was taller than Jelly, though he was a year younger. ‘Hey,’ he called again. ’ Jelly frowned. She swung down through the branches, landing in front of the boys with a soft thud.
