10 RADIO BOY She puts the bottle in her bag with the pebbles and shells. She looks at the grey sky. It s going to rain again soon, she thinks. Another five minutes, and then I must go home. She sees a man and a small boy walking by the sea, and a woman walking with her dog.then the woman with the dog stops and looks at something on the beach.the woman calls the man and the boy. Now the three of them are looking at... what? Anna doesn t know.the man says to the boy, Don t go near it,tom. What is it? Anna thinks. What are they looking at? It begins to rain and she walks quickly up to the road. It is time to go home. Steve sits in the kitchen. He eats his breakfast and listens to the music on the radio. I need some shopping, his mother says. OK, Steve says. Can you go to the shop now, please? his mother says. OK, Steve says again. Here are the things we need. She gives him a list. 10

He has music in his ears. 12

13 CHAPTER 1 CHAPTER TWO The Red Bottle Anna takes her bag to her room and sits on the bed. She can hear her young brother, Andy, watching a television programme in his room. Andy is five years old. He likes to watch children s television on Saturday mornings. Anna puts the shells, pebbles and other things from the beach on her table. Shall I draw the pebbles first? she thinks. Or a shell? Or the red bottle? She looks at a big shell. That s beautiful, she says. She sits down and draws the shell on some paper. She sits down and draws the shell on some paper. 13

14 RADIO BOY She looks at it. She is not happy with it. She looks for some more paper to do it again, but she cannot find any. Andy! Where s my paper? Anna calls. No answer. Anna goes into her brother s room. Andy does not look at her. He is sitting on his bed and watching television. Where s my paper? Anna says. I want to draw. I don t know, Andy says. That s not true! Anna says. Yes, it is! Andy says. Anna s father comes into the room. What s the matter? he says. Please be quiet. I m trying to work. Anna s father is a writer. He writes books and works on a computer in one of the other rooms of the house. Andy has all my paper, Anna says. Have you, Andy? her father asks. Andy does not answer for a moment.then he says, Maybe. That means yes! Anna says. I can t draw the things from the beach, and- 14

Get some for Andy, too. He gives Anna some money. Thanks, Anna says. Her father goes to his room and Anna puts on her coat. Steve walks along the street.the shopping is in a bag in his hand. It is not raining now and there is some blue in the sky. Maybe the sun is going to come out, Steve thinks. I can wash the car, then go for a walk on the beach later. He is in South Street. He doesn t need to walk home along this street. But the Roundbay Radio building is in South Street and Steve likes to walk past it. He wears his headphones and he listens to the music. He looks at the windows of Roundbay Radio Station. Tara s in there, he thinks. Maybe only twenty or thirty metres away from me! Hi,Tara! At that moment, the music stops and Tara Mason begins to say something in his ear. 16

17 THE RED BOTTLE The Roundbay Radio building is in South Street and Steve likes to walk past it. 17

18 RADIO BOY That s Cloud Nine. And now... Oh, wait a minute. Some news is coming in... and we must go over to Mike Quinn in the newsroom.what s the news, Mike?

20 RADIO BOY Steve walks quickly on. I must do something, he thinks. I must go to the police. Maybe the girl doesn t know the news. Maybe she s going to open the bottle and- He stops and looks at the windows of the radio station. And he has an idea. Andy goes into his sister s room. These things are from the beach, he thinks. Anything interesting? Anything for me to play with? Anna is at the shops.their father is in his room. The house is quiet. Andy goes across to the table near the window.

What s the matter, Mrs Clark? she says. Andy is angry. He wants to open the red bottle, but it is very difficult. His little hands are not very strong. He likes red. It is his favourite colour. Maybe it s a nice drink, he thinks. I m going to take the bottle out into the garden and break it! 24

25 STOP! DON T BREAK IT! Anna! she calls. Anna, wait! 25
