Jake and Jackie Learn to Respect Authority
By Beth Beutler
  

1     Jake and Jackie slumped in their chairs. This was the third time this week that the principal had called the entire student body together to "talk." There had been several items stolen from other students in the past two weeks, and the principal was getting tired of it.
 
2     Jake whispered to Jackie. "I am tired of these assemblies."
 
3     "Me too!" Jackie whispered back.
 
4     Ms. Johnson looked at Jake and Jackie sharply. Jake and Jackie slumped further in their chairs. Ms. Johnson tapped them on the shoulders and motioned for them to sit up.
 
5     Jake and Jackie sighed and sat up straighter. Jackie quickly rolled her eyes at Jake, quietly making fun of Ms. Johnson. Throughout the assembly, they made gestures and faces and tried not to laugh.
 
6     Finally, after what seemed like over an hour, the Principal dismissed the students.
 
7     "I'm glad that's finally over!" Jake said.
 
8     "Me too! I thought he'd never stop!" Jackie replied.
 
9     As they walked back to class, their favorite teacher, Mr. Mullen, came up to them. "Hi, Jake and Jackie. How are you today?"
 
10     "Great!" they replied.
 
11     "I wondered if I might speak to both of you after school?" asked Mr. Mullen.
