left10160000Mr Jenkins: I don't know. I got the text by e-mail two weeks ago. Here’s the e-mail.
John: It’s very bad. It's absolutely rude and offensive!
Mr Jenkins: Yes, it is. At first, I didn’t want to read anymore, but then I saw the manuscript and forgot about everything. It’s in runes, the ancient alphabet which Druids used for writing about secret things and magic. I know runes very well, but the runes of this manuscript are different. It’s a code. I tried to translate it but I’ve had no luck. Now I’m asking you for your help.
Emily: Don’t worry, Mr Jenkins. We’ll do it together.
Mark: What did you say, Mr Jenkins? A runic alphabet? A secret code? Let me have a look at it!
Mr Jenkins: What’s wrong with you, MacSly? Why are you smiling?
Mark: It's our family runic alphabet. I looked for this story and I’ve found it! I'll translate it for the next lesson. But... who is it from, Mr Jenkins?
Mr Jenkins: I’ve no idea! The e-mail address is [email protected] You can never find a person through this e-mail address.
Emily: But why not?
Mr Jenkins: Because there are millions of users at hotmail.com — people can use the server from any computer in the world.
