With our supplies packed we were ready to go. Everything was going perfectly as we set the space shuttle up in the back garden using the drain pipe as a guide pole and the patio as a launch pad.
Molly and I were strapped in and about to blast off. Molly shouted “Start the launch count down from 20 seconds, 20. 19. 18. 17. 16. 15…..”
“Ding dong” the door bell went. When my dad went to answer it, it was the post man with a very fat letter that said “Urgent!” printed onto the cover of the envelope. He opened the letter and his face went as white as a ghost. I tried to make out what it said on the letter but all I could see was the word “BILL” in big red letters with a large string of numbers next to it.
