For one minute after Jennings opened his eyes
that morning he could not understand why he had woken up so early. Then
he remembered. It was his birthday! He wanted to jump out of bed and
tell the boys about it. But all the boys in the dormitory of Linbury
Court Boarding School were still sleeping.
The following morning Jennings and Darbishire
hung the first issue of the Form Three Times on the notice-board. There
were a lot of boys near it and they liked the newspaper. There was only
one boy who did not like it.
Jennings hurried from the football field and
went to Mr Wilkins' room. He opened the door and went in. He looked at
the fireplace. A fire was laid and Jennings understood that Mr Wilkins
was going to light the fire. "It's a good thing I've come now," he
The next morning Jennings was sitting at his
breakfast with a sad face. "There is no second-hand bookshop nearer then
Dungambury," thought Jennings, "and Mr Carter will never give
Darbishire and me permission to go so far. And if we can reach
Dunhambury, shall we find a second-hand bookshop where we can sell the
book for a hundred pounds or.. ten shillings?"
|"I've had enough of that Form Three," Mr
Wilkins said to Mr Carter when he went into the staff room after his
algebra lesson. "I gave them an easy problem this morning, and nobody
could give me the right answer. Well, I'm going to make them come to the
classroom on Saturday afternoon, believe me!"
|When Venables was going to school from Linbury,
Mr Wilkins was gathering Form Three for the detention class. He wanted
to begin the lesson at a quarter past four sharp, or better some minutes
earlier. "Margaret's letter doesn't say what time she is coming," he
thought, "but I think she will arrive at about five o'clock."
The next morning Jennings was standing in front
of the Headmaster. To his surprise the Headmaster said very little
about the false alarm, because before that Mr Carter had had a
conversation with the Headmaster during which he pointed out to Mr
Pemberton that the boys had acted with the best of intentions.
