Joseph would tell stories to any child who visited their house. Today's story was a true story about how a young man from the West End stopped a tragedy from befalling a family. "One look," Joseph stated, "and the man could tell anything about something!"
"Like a person?" Skye questioned, eyes wide with interest.
Joseph nodded. "Exactly. One look at you, Skye, and he could probably tell you probably what town in Japan you came from!"
"Sugoi! That must take a lot of talent!" Skye remarked sounding amazed.
"Perhaps mice in this end of London would be treated more fairly in the eyes of law if someone like that mouse would pay attention to us." Noel commented, wondering whom this mysterious mouse was.
Skye wondered to herself as well. 'But,' She thought to herself, 'this also would mean everyone would be convicted more easily...'
She shrugged the thought off and looked at a clock on the wall. "I should head back to the flat, Mary and the others don't like me to be out very late."
"I'd hope not. Off you go, my dear." Noel stated as she hugged Skye.
After receiving a bear hug from Joseph, Skye waved good-bye and headed to the flat. She felt a bit uneasy though, for she had the strangest suspicion she was being followed. She ignored this thought and quickly rushed to the flat.
The others had already fallen asleep for the night. After hiding away her bag of treats, Skye went to sleep in her corner clutching her locket with her mum's portrait. Dreams of a mouse who protected the people of the alley and all of East End filled her head throughout the night.
