Jamie typed furiously. She wasn’t going to let Mark get away with embarrassing her in front of the whole class. They’d hated each other since the third grade when they met at recess, but she thought they’d come to a stalemate.

Jamie stopped typing and admired her work. It was perfect. She took a drink of soda and laughed. This would make up for the clown incident.
