“Cody!” Brittany screamed. She had been crying. “I thought you weren’t coming. Your mom called.”

Brittany laughed. “Okay Timberlake, we’ll hurry.”

Cody moved to all fours. “Couldn’t bring car,” he apologized. “Too noisy. Get on back?”

“Yes,” she said, still laughing. She grabbed her purse and flung her arms around his neck. “Let’s go.”

    How do you get a chain around here? I feel weird sequelling myself, but I think Cody has potential. :)
