Extra info for Angel Creek
Jelly, Dad and I have gone to the hospital with Nonna. I expect we won’t be around much over the next few days, at least until we know Nonna’s going to be all right. I’ll need you to help Maureen with the kids. Sorry, sweetheart. We’ll have an extra-special Christmas when everything is okay again. Love, Mum. Nonna would be all right, Jelly told herself. She had to be. She went back to Pik. ’ She steered him into the kitchen. ’ They packed bread, grapes, water, bandages and other things, and the old picnic blanket from under the stairs.
Good thinking. ’ ‘Lunch,’ her mum called. Zio Mario was back and in a foul mood. You’d think it was his mum who was in the hospital from all the fuss that Zia Pia was making over him. He strode over to the table and waited to be waited on. Jelly and Gino sat as far away from him as possible and far from Sophia, who dribbled and threw her food around. Somebody had put Nonna’s special chair by the back window, as if it was watching out for her to come home. It wasn’t a real Christmas lunch; everything felt strange without Nonna around.
The angel writhed, trying to get free, its spindly legs kicking up out of the water like rudders. ‘Hurry, Gino. ’ Gino made a grab for the tangled wing. As he touched the feathers the angel’s head burst out of the water. A terrible sound like the squeal of metal filled the tunnel. ’ The sound was unbearable. It took everything Jelly had not to drop the angel and cover her ears. ’ Gino pulled frantically at the strings of coloured plastic. ‘I’m trying,’ Jelly said. But the angel was as slippery as a fish.
