The Invitation-Introduction



It’s Saturday morning, and your mum’s telling you to take your little sister to the park. “Unless you want to help me mop the floor,” she adds. You get it – the park wins.

With your skateboard tucked under your arm, and your sister trailing behind on her rollerblades, you head out the door and down the footpath. “I’ll work on my grind while Carly practices her backwards skate,” you think, “and we’ll head home in time for lunch and computer games.”

Then an envelope catches your eye. It’s lying beside some bushes, half-covered with leaves, but it looks intact and rather official. You pick it up as Carly skates to a halt behind you. “What’s that letter?” she says. The front reads:

To The Finder
Tulledon Lane

“It’s for you, then,” says Carly. “This is Tulledon Lane, Hatbottom, and you’re definitely The Finder. Go on – open it!”

There’s no arguing with that logic, so you slit the envelope open and pull out the letter inside. It reads:

“Thankyou for accepting our invitation. Please be advised that our driver will pick you up promptly at 2pm, Saturday, on the corner of Tulledon Lane and Thack Street. You are to bring one guest, four ping-pong balls, and a packet of paper clips.”

Carly looks at you. “What’s this about accepting an invitation?”

“I don’t know,” you say, truthfully. “I don’t remember accepting anything.”

“Well that’s pretty strange,” she says. “What are you going to do?”

          That’s why we put the Start over link. 🙂 One thing I did was open the links in new pages too, that helped me. I had the same problem. 🙂 Thanks for reading!
