Jasmin shinned back down the tree; two more batteries stolen for her collection. She grinned broadly and hurried to her next target.
Her mobile phone vibrated and she checked it as she loped through the trees. It was a text message from Damien "RV 1 - ten mins". She thumbed a speedy "OK" and sent it without breaking step. Ten minutes would be pushing it, but she'd be there.
Victoria was still tapping furiously at her laptop, conducting tests, while the others sat around impatiently waiting for the boys to return.
"Why don't you go and play outside" suggested Victoria, without looking up.
"I can't" said Angela "I haven't got any clothes on!"
"It'll do you good, get some fresh air and some sun on your skin. Go on, give me some peace" said Victoria, still not looking up.
"Come on" said Emily getting up "Let's leave Victoria to her work. We can fidget just as impatiently outside."
Alison and Amy got up too, happy to go outside and play, but Angela remained seated, her hands over her groin.
"Come on Angela, you were outside naked before" said Emily.
"I've got the cameras covered darling, no-one's going to see you except the gang" added Victoria.
Angela rose reluctantly and followed the other girls outside.
"Who's Jack going to be for?" asked Amy "Is he for me or for Angela?"
"I guess that depends on Jack" said Emily.
"'Cos, we've now got another girl" said Amy.
"I know, but we've got Luke joining too, and Michael, so we'll have more boys soon" said Emily.
"But that might be ages" said Amy.
"I thought you'd gone off boys?" said Emily.
"A bit, but I still want to play with them" aid Amy.
"You can play with Jack if you want said Angela "I could just watch."
"You can always play with Ben" Alison said to Angela "So long as you give him back when I want him."
"Or Paul" said Emily "If Victoria doesn't want him."
"You make them sound like toys" said Angela with a laugh.
"Well, they are really" said Alison "Just very cute and clever toys."
"At least they don't need batteries" said Amy.
"No, but they do sometimes need winding up" said Emily.
They sat themselves on the grass by the stream. Angela looked round nervously.
"No-one's going to see you, darling" said Emily.
"I'll get undressed as well if you like" said Amy, pulling her top off.
"Me too, then we can all be naked together" said Alison.
