The disused building was their secret place.
If a message was left through the makeshift letter box, a mark was made on the wall outside and when retrieved, rubbed away.
Each had their own special mark, so there was no chance of a message being missed or sign ignored. Rendezvous could be arranged and it worked well for everyone.
This arrangement was in place for twenty years. The last mark was still just visible and the unopened letter stood on its edge at the bottom of the drop where it had fallen before the final bomb dropped.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
