George and Jamal followed him; they all sat around the breakfast bar, as Drew began to rummage through the fridge.
“Start from the beginning George and I swear it better be good, or I’m out of here.” Jamal said.
“But you’re his best friend.” Drew said reproachfully his mouth full of what looked like butter.
“Whatever, best friends aren’t supposed to make other best friends go to prison and die.” Jamal said.
“That’s true.” Drew said nodding as he turned back to the fridge.
“Well it all started when Miss Levy came over –”
“Miss Levy?!” Drew and Jamal both said at the same time.
“Shush!” George said anxiously, glancing at the door to his left.
Jamal jumped out of his seat.
“A teacher?! You kidnapped a teacher?” He looked at George with a mixture of disbelief and amazement.
“It’s always the quiet ones.” Drew said nodding wisely.
“Shut up Drew.” George said.
“Actually he has a point G, how you gonna kidnap a teacher?” Jamal laughed suddenly, “a legit teacher!” He laughed so loudly that both Drew and George joined him; soon the kitchen was full of their laughter.
“Seriously though.” Jamal said still laughing.
They all jumped as someone pounded on the front the door.
“It’s the police!” George hissed quietly, exchanging a fearful glance with Jamal.
“No it’s Sharlene; she’s here to tutor you.” Drew said simply, his mouth still full of food.
George turned to him in surprise.
“It’s right here on the fridge, Sharlene five to six, tutor George in science. Do you need help in science?” Drew asked.
George jumped off his stool, and the others followed him to the door, he opened it a creak.
“Hey, Sharlene, I don’t need tutoring today, I’m erm I’m sick.” George said, through the crack in the door.
Sharlene rolled her eyes.Follow @Anzy_aa
