The Adventure of the Tea-Cup

Arabel, Year 4

One sunny day, in Fairfax House there was a china tea-cup being drunk by the rich lady and her friend. They were talking about where they put the tea caddy key. They said they put it in the antique tea-pot. The tea-cup thought that, because the servants were not allowed to have some tea, even just the tiniest bit, and now he knew where the key was, he could make the servant her first cup of tea! So in the night, at about nine o’clock, the cup started his mission. He went up and down and all around, then asked the tea-pot for the key. After that, he made the perfect tea and served it to the servant in the morning!
