Chester and his best friend Owen had
their own way of doing things. They did everything
together. When they cut their sandwiches, it was always
diagonally. When they rode their bikes, they always use hand
signals. If Chester is hungry, Owen is hungry too.
They dressed as things that went together for Halloween.
They shared the same Christmas list. They were two of a
kind. They were two peas in a pod.

If she called them on the phone, they disguised their voices and said
they weren't home. They did not want anything to do with Lilly.
Then one day
some older boys were bullying Chester and Owen. Lilly jumped out
of the bushes in one of her disguises and scared the older boys
away. After that, when Lilly asked Chester and Owen to play they
said yes. Then it was Chester and Owen and Lilly. That's
the way it was.
