It took a while to get going, but the girls kept racing back to check. Following the faint line of the water creeping through the serviette, a gentle finger to see if it feels wet.
Abraca-shizzlepop! A few drips and a flurry of excitement – It made it! The water got through!
And it’s there, slowly but reliably gliding down the serviette and over to the other side.
