There are dandelions in Virgil’s pockets. He feeds them to Gulliver while Ruby’s inspiration about his dilemma continues. How can he find his voice? He is too intimidated to raise his hand in class, or speak to Valencia Somerset, who attends Thursday resource room with him. Now he’s trapped and rescue seems hopeless.
Kaori is waiting for Virgil. She has a client whose fortune she’s telling. Virgil’s absence is distracting her, so she, the client and skipping rope clutching Gen head off to search.
Virgil’s beloved grandmother has second sight too. She tells him stories to inspire, and reassures him that though he is ‘Turtle’ to his parents and brothers, turtles are resilient and strong.
Time is ticking for Chet too as he seeks to prove his bravery through capturing a snake. He’s already seen off that weird little boy who goes to resource room on Thursday. If only he didn’t have the feeling he was being followed…
