Shh! No - up here. Higher - come on, right at the top. That's right, you can see me now. Hello.

I've been waiting for you for a long time. Two years it's been - no, three now - since my last visitor. He was a lovely man - an old vicar, I think he was - took me back home and kept me in his cozy sitting room. I was sad to leave him, but I had to come back. I needed to wait for you.

Because you're different, aren't you? With you, I could go places - see things - travel the world. And while we go, I can show you new wonders, tell you tales you've never imagines. Interested? I knew you would be.

Yes, the ladder's a little too short, but I have faith in you. Come on - reach up. I'm right here on the top shelf. Just... reach... out...
