The office was too small. They’d just employed a bunch of temps and crammed them into the corner by the window.

‘Check this out!’ shouted Jeremy, pointing outside. Everyone but Julia rushed to the window. She just rolled her eyes.

She never liked short men. Jeremy and his brother were only 6 inches tall. She had a good two inches over both of them.

But when Jeremy and Simon began clambering over the temps, Julia stretched her slender wooden body across the room to have a look.

‘Is that it? A bearded man? And he’s not even using a proper computer!’
