“Oh god,” said Grace in tones of mild horror, “what is that? A lizard? What’s it doing in our house?”

“She’s a crested gecko,” Frankie told her. “I’m adopting her.”

“In our house?” Grace repeated.

“She can live in my studio if you’re going to be like that.”

Grace peered at it. “So what, you don’t believe in normal pets?”

“Penelope is perfectly normal. Here, hold her for a sec.”

There was a brief scream.

“Oh. She’s very warm.”

Frankie dropped a kiss on Grace’s cheek. “I knew you’d like her. I’ll set up her tank in the living room.”
