‘For goodness sake Nat. Can you name one good reason why they would not grant you this visa?’ said Poppy raising her eyes to the sky.
‘Well, you never know. I’ve had a few scares along the way.’
‘Having to prove I was British because I was born abroad. It never occurred to me before.’
‘Wait. What? What did you say?’
Too late Natasha realised she’d let this little puppy out. For years she had been so careful not to reveal too much about herself and now she was blabbing all her little secrets. Poppy was not going to let this one go. She’d stopped walking and stood, her arms crossed, waiting for an explanation.
