Riley lunged at Chel with his arms raised. He’d tossed his coat aside, which was what Chel had seen. Now, all she could see was him coming after her with a mischievous grin spread across his face.

“HEY, what are you doing, Riley?!” That’s all Chel could get out as she tried to get away from Riley. She slid off the bed and ran for the door, only to be grabbed firmly around the waist and tickled mercilessly. Chel tried to open her mouth to tell him to stop, only to start giggling.

“You humans and Rishans get down too easily!” Riley laughed.

“Riley!” Chel gasped between giggles. “Stop it!! I’m ticklish!!” She tried to squirm away, but he wasn’t giving her any opportunity to get away.
