“What’s upsetting? Please, can you tell us a bit more about the fight?”
Ivy dabs her eyes with a handkerchief. “Oh! I’m sorry, children! The memory is just too painful!”
She starts to blow into the handkerchief and cry, but it’s totally fake. And believe me, I know all about fake crying. Frank does it all the time to get what he wants from Eliza and their parents.
I picked today’s TT out myself. 🙂 I just flipped through it and stopped at page 165 (and a bit of 166).
An hour later, it was time for lunch. Nobody had really won British Tortoise – Benny had wandered off the playground towards the patchy grass side area, in search of… patchy grass, basically.. which meant the kids’ team had to follow him there. Then Bjornita had been frightened by all the noise and just retreated into her shell, which meant the teachers had to curl up into little balls with their hands over their hands at the other end of the playground.
