Suddenly there was a terrible squeal and the angel scuttled out from behind the door. Jelly fell against the side of the shed as the angel clambered up her, clawing at her T-shirt and drooling into her face. Its breath was as foul as dirty vase water. ‘Get it off me! ’ she pleaded, her heart banging around in her chest, but Gino was laughing so hard he could barely stand up. Pik peered around the door, sniggering. ‘It only wants you, Jelly,’ Gino said. ‘Not me. ’ Jelly pulled at the angel, but it was holding on so tight its skinny fingertips were bruising her ribs.

Jack glared at him. ’ The boy shrugged. ‘Why would you want to hang around school on the holidays? ’ He flicked his long black fringe out of his eyes and shot Jelly a grin before he and Budgie wheeled off down the street.

And Gino would be the one to cop it. She almost felt sorry for him then.
