Chapter 29: The Fox's Name

"Excuse me, Mr. Fox, so, you can speak?" Mike asked.

The fox looked curiously up at Mike.

"No need to be so formal."

"Oh, thanks. I'm Mike, and this is my brother Johnny."

"Nice to meet you. I am Lucius."

"No way! Like the guy in the Batman movies! That's really your name?" Mike replied.

"Haha, no, that's just a joke. I saw that movie last night and I thought it would be funny."

"Hmm," Mike said. "So, what is your name?"

The fox looked around. "I don't have one, I guess. No one's ever asked me before."

"Well, we will call you 'the fox' for now, until you think of a name you like."

"Oh, wow, 'the fox' that's so clever! Never would have thought of that one..." said the fox.

Johnny frowned. "Maybe we should just call you 'the jerk.'"
