It was the first day of school, it was raining, cold and Jess could think of a thousand things she’d rather be doing than going to boring old school.
So in protest she decided to take the morning off. She wandered around the park, playing in the puddles of water and generally felt justified in her decision to wop the first day back. She thought if she was clever she might be able to avoid going forever.
By lunch time she was thinking she missed her friends. If there was one benefit in attending school, it was her friends and the time she spent with them. By 1pm she was feeling very bored. She walked back towards the school and saw her friends having fun and enjoying the stories they told each other.
Tomorrow, as much as she hated to admit it, she would bite the bullet and front up.
