The Rock and The Sea
Last year, the school play was Robin Hood and Megan and Jack had been trees. Megan was Tree 2 and Jack was Tree 3. Megan had to sway more than Jack because Tree 2 got more of the wind. This year their teacher, Miss Fletcher, announced that they were to do a Greek tragedy. When she said tragedy she raised her arms in the air and looked up. Megan and Jack looked up as well but all they could see were some scattered pieces of chewing gum stuck to the ceiling.

They’re both careful not to be as surprised as the other is.
