After School

On Tuesday afternoon, David walked home from school with his friend, Robert. Robert bounced his expensive new football and said, “How about a game of football?” “I can’t,” said David, “I have to do my homework first.” “I don’t want to do mine because it’s too boring,” said Robert, and he ran to play football with their friends. This made David unhappy because he wanted to play, too, but he walked home to do his homework. The next day in class, Robert whispered to David, “Can I see your homework?” But it was too late: the teacher said, “Robert, what’s the matter? Why are you whispering? Did you do your homework?” Robert didn’t move and he didn’t speak. “Robert,” said the teacher, “Give me your book, please.” “I’m sorry, I didn’t do my homework,” answered Robert, and he gave her the book. The teacher was angry and said, “You know that if you don’t do your homework you must stay here after class and finish it.” Later that afternoon, Robert sat in the empty classroom. He did his homework slowly. He could hear his friends in the playground. On Thursday he did his homework first and then he enjoyed a game of football with his friends.
