It was an open day at Papa's work so naturally I came along so he could show me around. Ma didn't come; she had to stay at home and look after grandpa.

It wasn't particularly attractive, the reactor but then, I suppose it wasn't built to look pretty.

Standing at a third floor window, I could see quite a long way but I wasn't watching the view, no. What caught my eye was a small girl walking towards the reactor. She looked around, apparently quite scared. However her parents didn't notice it, they were excited.

What was she thinking? Did she think her parents would leave her here?

She whispered to her papa. He whispered back. Now she was no longer scared, just curious.

This was when I noticed a small puppy - a spaniel I think - trotting along in front, loyally, I thought.

The End
