They were discussing how Jessica was burned, nobody knew.
It was hot day outside, when Jeff, Rich, and Tom were outside running across the gym yard.
Courtney, Darlene and someone else were going to shoot hoops, Mrs. Brower turned to Jeff, Rich and Tom, the whistle sticking between her two teeth..
Tom's face went red. He wanted this conversation to stop.It was so dumb to him. So he decided to interrupt them and bring up a new topic.
Tom blurted out that he was gonna nominate Courtney. He even said that he liked her. Tom didn't even know why he was saying this. Rich's face grew suddenly.
While Tom got off topic, he started talking about Courtney. Telling Jeff that he wanted to pass by Courtney's house when they ride in the Cobra.
Before we start social studies , Sister Margaret Christopher has suggested that the classes join in a special prayer for all candidates in the real elections this year. A prayer that they may make the right decisions and will guide us and help us lead safe and prosperous lives in our state and our country. all the grades are doing it. So, hands, everyone.
When everyone was getting in circle, holding eachothers hands, Jeff refused to hold Jessica's. Jeff just put both his hands in his pockets.
Tom didn't refuse though. He grabbed her hand tightly. He realized it was not the burn side, he told to himself. Mrs. Tracey called out Jeff's name, but he did not respond. Jessica told Mrs.Tracey to go on with the prayer.
