Scout just started school and was heading home. She didn't leave with Jem because he has to stay at school longer than her.
Time to go home, Jem doesn't get out till 3
While Scout was walking home she passes by the Radley place and there's a tree planted in front of it. There's a knot hole in the tree and Scout notices that something is inside.
Scout gets home and doesn't really know what to do with the gum or if she should tell Jem about it. Eventually Scout makes up her mind that she will eat the gum and tells Jem about it when he gets home.
Should i tell Jem about the gum?
Jem and Scout walk home together from school one day and Scout plans on pointing out the tree to Jem.
"Come on Scout lets go."
"Let me show you the tree."
"What the heck is this?"
Jem and Scout check out the knot hole again and find new things waiting for them. This time they found two coins. They took the coins home and continued to walk home.
"What's in there Jem?"
"What are we going to do about this? Tell Atticus?"
Scout and Jem bring home the coins they found and decide to keep this hidden gift giving thing a secret.
"No! Are you crazy both of us will get in trouble."
