Helen phones her landlord to see if it’s possible for Alice to keep a cat in the flat. However, there’s something unusual about the landlord’s name.
|Helen:||Hi, dad it’s Helen|
|Dad:||Hello my dear, how are you?|
|Helen:||Studying hard as ever, dad. Can I ask you something as our landlord? Our lease says that we’re not allowed animals in the flat. Well, is there a way that we could get around that? You see, Alice found this kitten and everyone really wants to keep her.|
|Dad:||You have a cat in my flat? Oh Helen, why can’t you ever obey the rules?|
|Helen:||Oh dad! Please, won’t you bend them for me?|
|Dad:||Just this once.|
|Tim:||Kitty, did you hear what I just heard? She called the landlord “dad”. What a dark horse Helen is!|
