As the school year ended we heard whispers that teacher Hannah was transferring to another school. I felt sad, because we all really liked her.
Summer vacation didn't seem quite as good when we faced the fact that at the end of it we wouldn't be welcomed back to school by Hannah. A few weeks before school started we heard who would be taking Hannah's place. LV's sister Lydia. I wasn't sure what to think about that news. I really liked Lydia and wondered if LV would have to be nicer to everyone now or if Lydia would stick up for her kid brother.
School started and I was pleased to see that Lydia made LV stay after school everyday to help her straighten everything up before she went home. It seemed so nice to be able to walk home from school without worrying about having to put up with LV.
The fall days were beautiful and we soon were settled in a comfortable routine with our new teacher. With weather so beautiful recess was usually spent playing baseball. I still hadn't learned to really enjoy recess but had found my own little niche in baseball. They bent the rules a little bit teacher Lydia was the pitcher and I got to be on first base no matter who was up to bat. I was pretty good at it and always felt a little smug when I helped get someone out.
There were a few boys who were really good at playing and they hardly ever made an out. So when the day finally came that I managed to get LV out I was especially happy. He looked thoroughly disgusted and walked over to Eli a little second grade boy who practically worshipped him and whispered something to him. I didn't pay too much attention to them and focused on the game we were playing until I felt something slip into my hand. When I looked Eli quickly ran away and I just as quickly dropped the nasty horse _______ that had been placed in my hand. LV stood there laughing and I felt disgusted knowing that he had gotten Eli to do his dirty work. Our truce was about to be broken and I vowed to get even with him somehow.

Oooooh, LV liked you, I'll bet you dollars to donuts. Makin' people do his dirty work - clever kiddo. I'm just a little bit curious where LV is now. Hmmmmm... I'm glad you got him out though, sometimes it's nice to just have a tiny bit of power!! You go girl ~ ♥ReplyDelete
Childhood squabbles are a must in growing up.ReplyDelete
G'day, sweet friend ~ Another wonderful story ... we've probably all felt like this at one time or another.ReplyDelete
Have a loving weekend.
Oh my goodness, I think he likes you too, but to put poo in your hand...you have a good day :o)ReplyDelete
LV is a big stinker!! I can't wait to hear how you got even with the little devil - Hee HeeReplyDelete
I want to hear more about LV. I had to read back to the truce post since I am new to your blog. I am so enjoying it. I do hope you got him back... that was just mean!ReplyDelete
I don't know if he liked you or not but if a boy did those things to me I sure wouldn't like him.ReplyDelete
I really can't help wondering what made LV do such hateful things. I hope he changed.
It's very obvious he had a crush on you. That's how boys operate. In some strange way, they still do.ReplyDelete
I hope you found a really good way to pay LV back:) How well I remember those childish tricks and torments.ReplyDelete
I don't care what the others say about LV having a crush on you, I say he's a pill and needs a good paddling. So there.ReplyDelete
Ahhhh, getting even. I've felt that before. LOLReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by my blog!
