Tristan is a bewildering boy.He's always been such a life-wire but for the past two weeks,he's been strangely quiet.James has been quiet too but that is not unusual for him. They both seem to have been depressed since te last day of term.I'm not quite sure why.It is the summer holidays after all.Perhaps it was a mistake to choose different secondary schools for them. They're very different children but they're still twins.It's hard for the rest of us to understand quite how they feel. I must ask them again if this is what they really want.
