Oh no! There was a bar running longitude across the other bars. Could Acorn jump over it, so we could go through the pond? Sure she could! “Giddyap, Acorn!”
She leaped. She soared.
“You can’t be here!” Naomi blurted. “We aren’t allowed on this property, Emmi. We don’t have permission to be here.” Mrs. Bunch calmly explained. I felt my cheeks warm with embarrassment. So that was what Naomi was yelling about.
