“Are you absolutely positive no one knows about this place?” Jane whispered.
Ted gestured at the empty parking lot overgrown with weeds. “Just look at it. Come on. We’re totally safe!”
They wandered inside the building, and Jane noted the broken windows and faded graffiti. “Guess you’re right.”
“Let’s get comfy,” Ted said. He shook out a ratty old beach blanket onto the dirty floor and motioned for Jane to take a seat.
“I’m a bit nervous,” she admitted as she opened her backpack. She had buried today’s supplies at the bottom, just in case.
Ted took out his own collection. “I promise you they won’t find us here.”
“They’d better not.” Jane sighed as she gazed as the lurid cover of her romance novel. “We’ll both get kicked out of the exclusive literature society if we’re caught reading smut and comics.”
“Mmhmm,” Ted said, already lost in spidey world.
