Well, he wasn’t getting any warmer just standing there, Jacoby thought. He started trotting towards Romeo’s den. Now that he was outside, he might as well go hang out with his friend. Maybe together, they could figure out why Tessie and Angel didn’t approve of their being friends.
Moving was helping to warm him up, but Jacoby was still chilly. Fortunately, Romeo’s den was not far away. His pace quickened as he saw the familiar metal web. “Hey, Romeo! Romeo, are you there?” Jacoby yowled.
Romeo appeared and slithered underneath the fence. “Jake? What are you doing here? Where’s your human?”
“I kind of snuck out. I’m here alone. I just wanted to talk to you.”
“You did? Why? What’s going on?” Romeo asked.
“Can I come in, first?” Jacoby countered. “I’m kind of cold.”
