She closed her eyes only to open
them again and have to sit up in bed as the phone rang. She leant
over to the phone which was on a small wooden table beside her and
picked it up, wondering who would phone at this time of night.
I have a favour to ask you, came a deep voice at the other end of
What sort of
favour? Who is this?
Skinner. Look a few members of staff have become ill and we need
someone to cover. You will be paid of course.
Principal Skinner replied. Lisa sighed but agreed to do it anyway
even on such short notice. They quickly said bye and Lisa placed the
phone down. She fell backwards on to her bed so she was lying on her
back staring up at the ceiling. She soon fell to sleep and didnt
wake up until eight thirty the next morning.
