Chapter 1

-For Margaret-

Margaret -or Daisy- was jumping in her bed. Her parents bought her a new mattress few weeks ago and every time she had a chance, she used it for practicing her jumping.

Her mother did not like it very much, because they had already bought more than four mattresses in the last years, so every time they caught her jumping (and lately she was caught very often), she was reprimanded.

-Jumping again?--her mother told, her hands to her waist-, are you serious? I've told you a thousand times that you must not jump in bed. The bed is for sleeping. For nothing else!

-Two hundred and ninety-nine ... and three hundred!

Exhausted, she dropped into bed. She did not know how long she had been jumping, but she had the soles of her feet in pain and the new mattress was already beginning to groan with each bounce, as it was crying out for a break.

She went to sleep and thought about her friends and classmates. She had seen her friends only a few days ago and she was already missing them. The school was over and the summer vacations were starting.

Her parents had a house in the mountains, so they would spend the summer there. On the one hand, Daisy liked the woods and forest, because she adored going out to hunt worms, grasshoppers, crickets and, with a little luck, some lizard. But on the other hand, summer in
