In Lucy's Bedroom

“I like the skull,” said Jenny. “That’s really cool. Is it real?”

“Of course it’s real.” Lucy ran her fingers over the carved bone. “I’m not sure what all the symbols mean, though. He told me once but I’ve forgotten.”

“Who told you?” Jenny squatted so that she could look directly into the dark, empty sockets. It gave her the un-nerving feeling that it was staring back and she shuddered. “Your dad?”

“No. He doesn’t know I’ve got it. I don’t think he’d approve.” Lucy winked and patted the skull like a favoured pet. “Ebul told me himself, didn’t you?”

It is a beautiful skull, no wonder Lucy 'borrowed' it!
