*Sue, in class the next day, holds up a paper and reads from it with a cheerful smile.*
Sue: So I hope you learned a thing or two about the bacteria that crawls in our skin.
*Paulo, Sue, Mike, Daisy and Lucy stand together at the front of the classroom, smiling placidly as their classmates clap for their group presentation.*
*Their teacher, a poodle with fluffy hair, looks at the group with a kind smile.*
Poodle teacher: Very good. And that’s all for today!
Poodle teacher: Class dismissed! Have a wonderful afternoon!
*The students clamor as everyone packs up to leave. Paulo has an excited smile on his face. Mike props his schoolbag up on his desk. His arm is bandaged.*
*Sue sighs, annoyed.*
Sue: For all the trouble we went through finding our way back from that museum, we better ace this one..
*Daisy frowns as she notices Mike getting up to leave.*
*Daisy catches up to Mike.*
*Mike looks at her.*
*Daisy twiddles her fingers, looking down and blushing. Behind them, more of their classmates leave.*
Mike: What’s wrong?
*Daisy looks up at Mike, tearful.*
Daisy: I’m.. sorry about yesterday.
*Mike stares blankly.*
*Mike smiles and takes Daisy’s hands in his.*
Mike: For what?
*Daisy’s eyes go wide. She blushes.*
*Daisy smiles, looking lovestruck.*
*She hugs him tight.*
Daisy: This is why I like you so much, Mikie!!
*Mike is winded by the force of Daisy’s hug. His face gets squished up against the side of Daisy’s head.*
Paulo: So I totally beat up some thugs.
*Paulo, standing behind them, grins smugly at David, his arms folded. David looks awestruck.*
