Riley frowned and thought for a moment. "Oh, maybe that's not the right word. Um...oh, I dunno. It's some kind of disease. Mummy told me about it."

"Oh, umm. Do you mean leukimeia?" Lydia asked, sure of herself.

"No, that's too long. It sounded like babies." Riley shook her head, tapping her chin in thought. "Only animals get it, but they can pass it on to people if we touch them."

"Umm..." Lydia thought. She put her hand on her chin and started saying words quietly. "Abies, babies, cabies, daybies..."

Daisy stepped back with her eyes wide, she held her arms out. "Rabies. Mommy was telling me about this the other day." She eyed the dog.

Caleb rolled his eyes scoffing. "Please... He looks like a friendly dog." He tilted his head a little watching it.

"He's got a collar." Jackson pointed out, and slowly walked over to the dog. "Hiya, buddy." He said gently, making no move to pet it or get closer. If there was one thing Jackson understood, it was animals.

Riley watched curiously. She'd read about how to approach scared dogs, but Jackson was doing it exactly right. And she knew for a fact he hadn't read about it.

Caleb bent down and stroked his fur and smiled. "Aren't you a lovely?" He said softly.

Daisy watched them and smiled, she found it adorable when Jackson was in his element.

The dog wagged its tail, and Jackson reached forward to scratch behind its ears. After a moment he lowered his hand to look at the tags. "Well, he is a she. And her name is Ruby."

Riley took a hesitant step forward and glanced over at Daisy. She smiled a bit when she saw her expression, but didn't say anything.

"Well whoever owns Ruby will be probably be looking for her." Daniel said stepping forward with his arms crossed. "Does it have a number?"

(Just asking when do you think we'll be moving forward?)

Daisy's cheeks coloured red as she turned to face Riley, she couldn't hide the smile she had.

"No, just her name. Maybe she'll follow us back to your house." Jackson said, looking back at Daniel. "We can try to find her family from there. Make posters and things." He suggested, petting Ruby's head.

Riley giggled but looked away, shaking her head.

"Perhaps. Come on then. I would presume people are looking for us." Daniel said jerking his head.

Caleb got up and nodded. "Lets. I'm starving and I think ruby is too." He smiled.

Jackson nodded and walked off, patting his leg and calling Ruby. Ruby trotted after him, tail still wagging.

Riley half walked/half skipped over to Daisy.

(Oh, I forgot to answer your question. I think after Charlotte comes back in we may skip ahead.)

(Yeah sure that sounds good :) Okay then :) and are we still playing the parents?)

Caleb walked beside Jackson, he had his hands in his pockets. "That's the first time I actually seen you smile." He said cooly.

Daisy pushed back her fringe and smiled as Riley was by her side. "Hey Riley..." She said nervously.

(Yeah!)

Jackson looked over at him and shrugged. "I smile loads. You're just never around." He said, lying.

Riley grinned at her. "Hi Daisy. How was your day?"

"Oh yeah Jackson? What do you like smiling to then?" Caleb asked using his shoulder to poke him.

"It's been a fine day so far... And yours?" Daisy said in a slow manner, she kept her hands behind her back and kept walking.

"Archie?!" Kathryne called out from downstairs.
