The children watched with bated breath as the magician plunged the final sword into the crate. He covered it with a red robe and swirled it around.
‘Voila!’ he said, opening the crate to reveal nothing but the swords.
The children gasped. ‘Where’s Billy?’ asked one.
‘A magician never tells,’ said the magician. He grinned and shut the crate, taking time to remove the swords.
No one saw the blood seeping through the back on to the grass.
