“It’s not fair!” The children shouted in unison, banging their fists on the desks and stamping their feet, filling the classroom with sounds of chaos.
“Why did Priscilla win 1st place for her project?” Bobby asked, standing up from his seat, crossing his arms over his chest defiantly.
“Sit down, Bobby!” Ms. Vaughan commanded. When he complied, she continued. “I thought Priscilla’s project was the most creative and showed the most attention to detail.”
The last bell rang. Once the classroom was empty, Ms. Vaughan slipped off her shoes and put her feet up on the desk. Bobby’s project really was better than Priscilla’s. But he was a little smart-mouthed brat, always giving her a hard time. Until he adjusted his attitude, he wouldn’t be getting any prizes from her. Priscilla made her job easier. She unwrapped a chocolate from her secret stash, looked out the window, and counted the days until summer.
