In at number 5 !
Time: 14 mins 55 secs
Return with me now to the thrilling day of Tuesday ...
Last but one mission. I set the book down and withdraw. Above me dark clouds sweep across the scene. Come on someone go for it before it starts raining. Save the book ( and women and children of course.)
9 mins later:
An Asian man in a grey and black striped top sits down on the bench. He sits a black bag between him and Sebastian Faulks. This looks good, people with bags often go for the book.
14 mins 55 secs:
He does. (For a minute.)
He doesn't. (He sets it down again for 12 mins.)
And so on until the book has snatched him away from his world and he is pulled into it.
