The boys peeked out of the upstairs window. They watched their teacher make her way up the path towards the front door. They saw her hesitate and look at the knocker, mystified. She reached out and lifted the ring of the knocker. A spray of water shot out of the gargoyle’s mouth and hit her right between the eyes. She jumped back in shock, turned and marched back down the path. Her ridged back indicated that the boys would be in for it at school tomorrow. They didn’t see this though. They were rolling around the floor of the upstairs bedroom, howling with laughter.
