"Who's got the hood?" asked Emily a little breathlessly.
"Ben has" said Paul.
"I've got the handcuffs. Gag? Who's got the gag?" asked Emily.
"Alison has" said Paul.
"Paul, are you sure your bike's not going to be too obvious with that trailer on it?" asked Emily.
"Calm down Emily. It's going to be fine, and we need to be quiet!" said Paul.
"I'm just worried" she said urgently "We don't want to let Victoria down. If this goes wrong..." she said.
"It won't. Just be cool!" said Paul.
Victoria, Emily, Alison, Paul and Ben had met up in a forest glade about halfway between the church and the den. Hurried whispers had finalised the last minute details and Victoria had left them, to act as bait. The others had hidden the stuff; hidden themselves, and were waiting. It had been a long wait.
"What if she's not coming? What if something's gone wrong?" asked Emily.
"Alison, if she says anything else - gag her!" said Paul.
"She might need us!" said Emily.
"Sssshhhh!" said Paul "There's someone coming."
They went silent as the quiet conversation approached.
"No, I wanted somewhere quiet, more private" they heard Victoria say "If I'm going to take off all my clothes I don't want to risk anyone seeing me."
They didn't hear Giles.
"You do want me to get undressed for you, don't you" she asked, sounding apprehensive suddenly.
"Yeh!" they heard Giles say.
"Are you going to take off your clothes as well?" Victoria asked as they drew closer.
"No way!" Giles said, his voice full of horror.
"I'd like to see you" said Victoria "And, you know, your thing."
Paul knew Victoria well enough to know that she was trying to keep a straight face; to keep herself from smirking and laughing.
"Girls should show themselves, not boys" said Giles "I want to see your fanny, show it to me now!" said Giles.
"I will, just a bit further. We're nearly there" said Victoria.
