Velvet knew how she’d find out…
@ Verlie’s birthday party, Velvet made sure Verlie was the 1st to eat from the black fairy cake & made sure that she was there to cut the slice. As she handed the plate ‘cross the table, Velvet watched the slice closely for signs o’ movement, oddity. But it looked like an ordinary cake.
Then she watched Verlie closely as she scarfed the slice down thoughtlessly, an opaque smile on Velvet’s face.
“Mmm, it’s good,” said Verlie.
Velvet’s smile tightened. “Yes. Very.”
But with drumming fingers, Velvet thought, Now we’ll see 100% where that last oatmeal cookie went & what a lying horse you are.
