Ben ran over to the bike rack. "Jessy, guess what?"
Jessy waved goodbye to her dad and turned to lock up her bike. "What?" She took off her helmet and smiled at him.
"You know my robot I've been building?"
"Of course." Jessy looked interested.
"Well..." Ben looked around to make sure no one was listening. He spoke in a whisper. "I know this sounds crazy, but it really works."
Troy laughs. "The North Pole is a long way from here."
"Our spaceship is very fast!" Googol says.
Troy's eyes light up. "You have a spaceship?"
"It's on the roof of your house," Googolplex says.
Troy looks at Pippa. "We could go with them if they promise to have us back before dinner."
