Hannah and Kate are acquaintances that sit behind one another in English class. Hannah is more of an independent individual while Kate is the polar opposite.
What does she want now? I've told her over and over to pay attention when Mr. Smith is talking!
Hey, Kate! Are you ready for another great day of learning?
The two of them were making small-talk before the tardy bell rang.
I guess so. You know I don't really like this class.
The bell rang and Hannah began to listen to the teacher lecture. She began to take some notes while Kate was off in a daze.
I wonder what I'll have for a snack today after school...
Once the teacher stopped talking, Kate came back to reality and noticed that she had missed the lecture. She began tapping on Hannah's back to get the notes.
Hannah finally turns around, annoyed at Kate's tapping.
What do you need this time, Kate?
I'm sorry Hannah, but I didn't get any of the notes that we were just supposed to take. Can I copy yours down?
I guess, although I feel like you are using me when you ask for notes because I am known to have good grades and get things done. I need for you to take some responsibility and stay focused during class.
I'm really sorry, but sometimes his voice makes me want to not focus!!! I promise that I will try harder to maintain focus throughout this class. Thank you!!!
Hannah has to take a deep breath and realize that this is how it will be the rest of the year, regardless of how many times she consults Kate about her lack of focus.
