“Ew!” I shrieked. Mr Quarterbrain looked up.
“Well then, pick it up!” He sneered.
I stared at him. Why in the world would I want to pick up a maggot-infested old sandwich? I bent down to reach for it and...
“Mr Quarterbrain, you’re needed in the office,” A very familiar voice called. Anastasia! She winked at me.
“Great.” Mr Quarterbrain stomped off.
“Phew, looked like you needed help.” Anastasia laughed. For a moment no-one spoke. “Sorry about this morning.” She confessed. “It’s just that I’ve never seen anyone covered head-to-toe with green goop.”
“That’s all right,” I accepted. We hugged, and I sighed, happy to have a friend again. I wondered what would happen next.

“166,” I mumbled as I stood up and down like a jack-in-a-box.
“It’s 168! Haven’t you been paying attention, Miss McKenzie?” Mr Quarterbrain thundered.
I stood up to start again: “14.”
Everyone else repeated their number. I was bored. I walked over to my bag to sneak in a snack, turned around and freaked out when I looked across the classroom...
