THE BATTLE FOR THE CASTLE 45 Lawrence watched from below. "I'm going to head back to work. " "Yeah," William said. " As he watched his father's back disappear, he had a sudden urge to run after him and clap him on the shoulder or something. Just for a minute. Just when he remembered he wouldn't be seeing him for a while. But he didn't do it. Jason was watching. "Your father's weird," Jason said. "I know. But at least he didn't hassle us about the bikes. " Jason moved his bike over so that it faced the castle entrance.
William tossed him an apple. "This is like feeding the animals in the zoo," he said. When Jason finished the apple, he stood up. "Watch this," he said, hurling the core way out into the river. "Maybe you shouldn't have done that," William said. "Why not? " "It's funny, the river looks kind of dirty. " William pulled his binoculars out of his backpack and scanned the surface of the water. " "I don't see anything. " Jason asked. "Stuff. I can't really tell what it is. '' He followed it up to the edge of the river.
Well, hang onto me while we go up the steps. " William felt Jason's fingers slip through his belt loop. Like blind people, they slowly felt their way up the staircase inside the north tower. When they reached the top, William raised his hand. "Wait," he whispered. " For a moment, they heard nothing. And then the same faint scratching floated up to them, this time from the direction of the south tower. They tiptoed along the walk until they stood right above the strange noise. William shone the light over the side of the wall and it came to rest on the glossy dark fur of an animal.
