Within days they meet local wildlife biologist, Chet Boone. This is what happens after the three of them share pizza and a song together:
“You’re humming that Brown Eyed Girl song aren’t you?” Nick asked.
“Hmm. So I was. It’s an old song from way back. I’ve always liked it.” She pulled into the carport and engaged the Jeep’s parking brake. The pine trees were fragrant. Several branches touched the metal roof of the carport. They made a shushing sound when the wind blew. It also sent their tangy green fragrance into the Jeep’s open windows. “We may regret not having a garage when it snows this winter,” she said.
“I think he likes you,” Nick replied.
Ella stopped with her finger on the automatic window button. The windows stopped halfway up. “Chet Boone?”
Nick rolled his eyes. “No. The Incredible Hulk.”
