Maeva, the marine biologist

Maeva, the marine biologist, was waiting at the dive centre the following afternoon. After introductions were made, the resort manager, Laurent, approached and joked “I have just made a telephone call to advise the manta rays you’re coming, so they’ll be waiting for you”. We laughed and in high spirits we boarded the boat and I replied that if we saw less than ten manta rays then Laurent owed us a drink, to which he agreed.
