Steven read the list again and shook his head. “I have no idea what Kasey is asking for on this Chris, I can’t read her writing and you all say doctors can’t write legible. Rid bug gun slones? Tepid dig?” He grinned. “I think the last one is code for warm dirt.” He handed him the list.
Chris took it and looked at it for a minute using the light from his cell phone. Steven smirked at him with an ‘I told you so’ look.
Chris grinned at him. “That’s red bag of gem stones, laptop and dog, as in our puppy that has probably eaten its way out of the house by now. It’s probably a good thing she bought a giant feeder and water dispenser or I’d have to charge myself with animal abuse.”
Dexter took the list. “We’re bringing pets back?”
Dade nodded. “Good thing the only pet any of us have is a puppy huh?”
Dexter nodded and looked at the list again. He looked up at them. “We’re going to need a tractor trailer for all of this.”
Steven scratched his head in thought. “Well I’m thinking we’ll take the most important and tell them we couldn’t find the rest or something.”
Dade laughed. “Yeah, because I want to go back to Cora and admit to her I have no idea where anything is.”
Steven frowned. “You have a point.”
Chris took the list back from Dexter and studied it. “Who put Yule tree on here?” He looked at all of them. “They want us to go hack down a tree and sneak it back?” He unzipped his coat further. “Whose hand writing is this?” He handed the list back up to Steven.
Steven studied it and then held it over where Dade could see it. “Do you know?” He glanced at it twice then back to the road and shook his head.
Dexter reached up and took the list and looked at it again. “It doesn’t match anyone’s on here.”
Dade looked at him in the rearview mirror. “Right so the spirit living with the sixteen of us wants a tree.” His voice trailed off at the end and he glanced back in the mirror at Dexter and Chris then back over to Steven. The other three men all had the same look on their face. He cleared his throat. “So anyone know where we can get a tree?”
