Cole quickly picks up a backpack and then the cat and goes

out – closing the door behind him.


Don’t anybody go in my room

today – I’m working on a project.

Marlowe steps out the front door of the toy house and begins

to explore the room. He goes into every corner and every

dark space looking for a crack or a hole or some other enemy

who might wait for him in the night.

On a kitchen plate on the edge of Cole’s desk Marlowe finds

a piece of pizza and after smelling it and licking it he

sits down on the desk with the pizza in his hands and looks

out the window as he eats.

Marlowe takes the pizza and drags it into the toy house and

realizes that he still is holding onto the pizza. He pushes

the piece up above his head and places it in Cole’s hand.

The old pizza which was on my desk.

Wow, this is soo cool. I’m Cole.

Nothing happens so Cole points to himself with his

other hand and repeats,


I’m Cole. Guess you don’t speak
