Ever since Verity was little she always thought about becoming a spy or a hero, so she always went out to this bridge and played pretend along with her 5 older brothers.
When Verity grew older, she decided that she wanted to become a spy to help save the people from the Nazis. She became best friends with the pilot, Maddie. Unfortunately, Maddie lost control over the plane and came crashing down to the field. Verity was left alone to survive.
Verity was soon taken away and was arrested by the Gestapos ; Verity was forced to confess or earn a death penalty.
She decided to save their friendship by confessing about what happened before the plane wreckage and uncovered her mission as a spy.
The Nazi investigators accepted her apology and set her friend and her back home to where they were.
Verity attended her best friend's funeral and apologized as to what happened. This shows true friendship.
