“Maybe I should put Harey inside in case the winds start up later this afternoon, before we get back,” Nessa said. “He’d be safer there than in the greenhouse, since we haven’t had a chance to cover the windows.”
“Why not take him with us?” Jack stuck the sandwiches and drinks into the knapsack. “As you said, he might be able to show us the way.”
Nessa and Tenspot both rolled their eyes.
“I saw that.”
“You really are crazy,” Tenspot said, but he loped around the side of the house and came back carrying the rabbit, along with a cat-sized harness and leash. He set Harey on the ground. “Listen up, fella. Jack wants you to find the Fountain of Youth.”
Harey settled on his haunches and nibbled a blade of grass.
Tenspot grinned. “Looks like we’ll have to find the Fountain on our own. He’s not much help.”
Harey chose that moment to swallow the last bite of grass, perform three binkies in quick succession, and zoom from comatose to jet-propelled. He tore past the greenhouse, shot into the undergrowth, and disappeared.
