Jess awoke to the sound of a scream. “Not again,” she thought. She threw on a robe and ran down the hall toward Eddy’s room.
Tom and Cindy met her in the hallway. “Eddy again?”
They got to Eddy’s door just as he walked out. “Sorry,” he apologized. “4:55, right on time. At least this time she didn’t bite off my nose.”
“What did she …? Oh, never mind,” Jess replied.
“Now that we’re all up, why don’t I make some breakfast?” Tom offered.
“Maxine and I will help,” Cindy chimed in.
“What about Wolf?” Maxine interrupted. “He needs to go out first.”
“I’ll take him out,” Eddy replied. “I woke you all up.”
“Agreed.” They responded in unison.
Eddy grabbed a shotgun and went through the ritual of checking the security cameras before heading up the stairs to the roof. The rest converged on the kitchen and began making hot coffee, scrambled eggs, bacon, English muffins, and juice. By the time Eddy and Wolf got back down breakfast was ready.
“It’s a gorgeous day outside. A little colder than it was yesterday. The wind has swung around and is coming in from the north.”
“A perfect day for going to the mall,” Jess replied.
“If you say so,” Eddy answered. “Still keen to get the camera gear?”
“Yes, but we should makeup a shopping list first.”
“I thought we were going to finish watching yesterday’s videos?”
“Okay, okay, everyone meet back here in five minutes,” Jess replied. “Videos first, then the mall.”
