“Hey check this picture out.” Olivia said to her best friend Harper

“What is that?”

“It looks like newspaper hands holding a hamburger all made out Paper Mache.”

“Look at this its Abigail Fletcher artwork. Miss Rogers pet.”

Olivia rolled her eyes.

“Let’s get to class. I think we’ve got math’s next period. Let’s hope Abigail’s not in class today.”

However, sadly for Olivia and Harper, Abigail was there. Therefore, the girls chose to congratulate Abigail on getting her work put up around the school. Her response was “I had to pay Miss Rogers to get my work put up.”
