“But, I have no desire to move!”
“I don’t want to sound rude, but I told you not to settle there. I’ve been in this spot for over six months and no one has bothered me.”

“Well, I can keep a look-out, and give you a signal to make a run for it if she gets close.”
“What about my family? The little ones won’t be able to move as quickly. I’m afraid I may lose them.”

The owner was determined to canvas every corner, crevice, and hidden surface. The friends looked at each other in horror as they realized their fate. At least they would be taking the journey together this time!
