Погода нынче нелетная. Приходится компенсировать короткие прогулки ментальной нагрузкой. Собаченьки вдоволь наигрались, нанюхались, спят теперь. А у меня появилось время на почитать.📖 Люблю каникулы. 💃🏻
I found something unexpected today. 👀
It was during our evening walkies, while we were exploring a new open field. The grass in that area is tall, and it looks yellow. It might not be grass at all. And it also has bushes and vines.
While walking next to one of these, I smelled something. I decided to get closer, and I was able to recognize one of the smells—it was a rabbit. I've seen them before, and they're curious little creatures, but there was another smell I could not identify.
I don't think my Comrade was able to smell it, but he realized my interest. "What's in there, Sinatra? Wait up. Let me see." He pulled me away and started to look through the vines. Kayla got closer, too. And then, all of a sudden, the rabbit came out on the other side of the bushes! 🐇
I assumed Kayla would run after the rabbit, and she did, but she lost precious seconds. I don't think she had even noticed his presence. But while my Comrade was looking at Kayla and trying to call her back, I went into the bushes. There was another scent in there—a very different one. 🕵️♂️
The outside vines were like a curtain. Once I passed through them, the area was hollow, like a small cave, so it was easy for me to reach my objective. It was a new odor for me, but I never expected to find what I found—an old notebook.
It was open, so I read the page in front of me.
"I was surprised to learn that Clive knows how to speak Portuguese. His ship ran aground on the coast of Brazil. Awaiting repairs, in the same span it can take a child to be brought into this world, this arrogant young lad plucked up the local language.
Considering that tongue is spoken in Goa, its knowledge will serve him well, and the Company." - P
Who is P? What is that notebook doing there? 🤔
My Comrade called me. We needed to go find Kayla and make sure she didn't get lost. But she came back to us soon after, and then we headed to the cabin. I'll need to go back to that notebook.
