Jenny was a cheerleader. She could do flips, jumps and execute the most daring tricks. During a practice routine she heard horns and sirens. When she realised they came from her friend Sarah's house she got dead scared... (but not for the reason you think...)
Since she was in school, she could not leave it to see what was happening but it was all she could think about during her next class. Suddenly her principal came in and called her into his office to talk to her. This is bad news she thought. Her principal told her that Sarah had been in a car accident on her way home from a doctors appointment. Someone had crashed into her!
They were being interviewed. Jenny was really scared now. And Sarah had well, you know, died.
The police figured that Sarah's neighbour was responsible for her death for putting a bold coloured sign on the side of the road - therefore distracting the driver.
The next day Jenny was in her bedroom when she remembered the week before when Sarah had been asked out by a boy Jenny had been crushing on for weeks, and Sarah accepted! What cheek! Suddenly the phone rang. It was Sarah's ex-boyfriend, Jenny's crush, asking her out! Of course she said yes! Oohh a bonus, Jenny thought! Jenny lifted a page from underneath her bed. It read:
1)Pay Jason to crash into Sarah's car. x
2)Look sad about it. x
3)Make a date with Josh.
And as she put an x on the last line she laughed.
The next day she sat in court watching an innocent man get arrested. And as she did this she smiled to herself and sat in silence....
