Hands up, this isn’t my best. It was completed on my 30 minute lunch break. I was partly reminiscing about school, my partner in crime during the school days (who played the cello) and one of my favourite Bond moments. So I apologise to those who don’t get the vague reference, I hope you enjoy it anyway.

Nothing to Declare
“The lighter one”
“Do you think they would notice it missing?”
“Nah, not if we’re quick”
Beth stood on the tips of her toes and peered out of the tiny window. “Snow is looking pretty thick at the moment, perfect conditions”
“You keep a watch whilst I get the case”
Jess dashed into the adjoining cupboard and fought through the various instruments to drag out the cello case. It was nearly the size of her.
“Psst” she heard from Beth “Mrs Newel is coming, get out of there”
Hearing her teacher’s heels walk down the hallway, Jess quickly put the case back and joined Beth back by the cellos.
“We’ll try again tomorrow” whispered Beth “I bet Bond never had this much trouble”
