Kevin turned to Stargirl. "You know, ever since you showed up at school this year, we've been wanting to put you on the Hot Seat."
Stargirl stared at him. She turned to the live camera. Her eyes were growing wider.
...as her horrified eyes swung down over the side of the chair, the Hot Seat, saw the painted flames... "EEEEEEEEEEEEYIKES!"
The rat leaped from Kevin's shirt. The camera caught her standing now on the front edge of the stage, bending over with her rear end to the camera, flapping herhand behind her, fanning her smoking fanny.
Chico dived. He was flat on the floor, feeding the live screen a brilliant shot of the rat heading over to the jury, the jury members scrambling, taking off, climbing onto their seats.
