Good Clean Earth
By Mary L. Bushong
  

1     Thirteen-year-old Julio kicked the tire with the toe of his shoe. "Where do you want this thing?" he asked Mr. Domingo.
 
2     "All the old tires go in the back of Mr. Jackson's pickup truck," said Mr. Domingo.
 
3     Julio began to pull up the tire from where it rested partially buried in the dead leaves and grass. Tyrone came over to give him a hand.
 
4     "Do you think we might find what's left of a body here somewhere?" Tyrone asked.
 
5     "Ewwww," said Angelica who was picking up garbage. "That is so gross! What made you think of that?"
 
6     "They have stuff like that on TV shows all the time," said Tyrone.
 
7     "TV! This is not TV!" said Angelica.
 
8     "I know, but I plan on being a forensic investigator when I'm out of school," said Tyrone. "Think about what great experience it would be!"
