The next day, things were back to normal in the salvage yard. When Jake woke up, he could hear Chance downstairs laughing at what must have been Scardy Kat. After his shower, he came downstairs to see that it was indeed Scardy Kat.
“Hey buddy, I wondered when you were going to wake up,” Chance said, noticing Jake.
“Morning, buddy,” Jake replied as he headed to the fridge for breakfast.
“What do you have planned today?” Chance asked.
“Well, I have a date with Callie later,” Jake answered.
Chance turned his head away from the TV to look at Jake. With one eyebrow up he asked, “Where you taking her?”
Jake looked at Chance after the question and laughed at his friend’s curious expression.
Chance, trying not to laugh himself, started again, “Don’t laugh – where you taking her?”
“I don’t know – I was thinking someplace nice,” Jake finally answered.
“Well of course,” Chance said sarcastically. “I figured as much, but where you going to eat?”
“I don’t know – what’s good? I don’t eat out much,” Jake admitted.
“Well, I’ve heard that Italian is that best food choice for the first date.”
“What? Where did you hear that from?” Jake laughed.
Then, all of a sudden, a horn went off from outside the garage. The two looked toward the window, then to each other.
“Callie?” Chance asked.
“If it is, she’s five hours early,” Jake replied, then moved closer to see that it was the beautiful She-Kat he had helped a couple of days ago. “Ah man, she’s back. That means something went wrong. Kat’s alive – it’ll take me all day to fix that thing she’s got.”
“Who is it?” Chance asked.
“Oh, just that She-Kat who came in a couple of days ago, with that faulty exhaust pipe. You know?”
“The pretty one?”
“Yeah,” Jake said, depressed. “I don’t think I’ll have time to be with Callie today cause I’ll be stuck here fixing that.” By the time he had finished talking, Chance had already jumped out of his seat and gone over to take a look.
“Hey, buddy. I’ve got a great idea. How about you let me take care of it?” Chance asked with a romantic tone in his voice. “That way you can get to take Callie out,” he added, trying to convince Jake.
“Really, you would?” Jake asked as he turned to Chance, seeing him eye the beautiful She-Kat. “You’d do that for…” Then, he realized. “Wait a minute… I think I know what you’re after.”
Chance looked at Jake with a grin on his face. “Can you blame me?” he asked.
Jake laughed and walked over to him. “She’s all yours, buddy,” he said as he walked past him and went upstairs to get everything ready for his date with Callie.
