The sun warmed Tod’s skin as he wandered through the various tables, stopping every now and then to examine something extra pretty. He had no artistic skill to speak of himself, but he enjoyed seeing the cool things people made and listening to all the happy chatter of the people wandering about.
There was a lovely little tree sculpture made out of twisted wire and bits of sea glass. Tod touched it carefully, examining it from every angle. Maybe he could get it for Mama Tweed’s birthday? It wasn’t for a while, but she might like it and then he wouldn’t be scrambling at the last moment like always.
He checked the price and winced. Maybe not. He only had enough money in his pocket for an ice cream or some other small snack else. He’d come back tomorrow with enough to see if the tree was still for sale.
Ice cream now on his mind, Tod set off in search of one of the ice cream stalls. Beaches and Cream had to have one somewhere. If not, maybe he’d walk over to them and sit on the beach for a while.
Tod had been keeping an eye out for if a friend was around, everyone on the island seemed to be around, so that was how the face caught his eye. His head whipped around. For a second he thought he’d imagined it, a trick of the mind or the heat and blur of faces making him confused. But then he saw the face again and no, it was real.
Copper Slade. Copper Slade really and truly standing there, just a few yards from Tod. He’d grown since Tod had last seen him. Well obviously, they’d just been children, Tod had grown too. He was taller, more muscular. A man, no longer a boy. But it was still Copper. Tod would have recognized his childhood best friend anywhere.
Heart suddenly inexplicably pounding, excitement, that’s what it had to be, Tod blurted out, “Copper!” He was beaming uncontrollably and gave a mad wave. “Copper, hi!”
TAG: COPPER SLADE | NOTES: let the drama begin! side note: picked the festival because a) why not and b) more people = harder to run away ;)
