She sat on the hedge today, enjoying the view but feeling afraid. She’d heard talk about how some of the scarecrows down the street had been taken or injured last year. So when she was asked if she’d like to go and sit in the sunshine somewhere peaceful she jumped at the chance. She sat smiling on the back of Eric’s bike and took the long ride from Stone Cross to Pevensey Bay. Mum, Janice had a tear in her eye as her beautiful girl waved goodbye. Now Rosie May sits overlooking the allotments, and brings a smile to the faces of the passers by using the footpath.
