As Emma got off the bus, she closed her eyes and took a deep breath. Oh yes! This was how it ought to smell. Of manure, petrol and damp earth. Of summer holidays with Dolly. Emma happily turned off her mobile phone; blissfully there had never been any mobile reception in this village! She flung her rucksack on to her back and hopped across the road. She spat in the village pond, jumped into two puddles, and then she was at her grandmother’s garden gate. Everything was the same as ever.
