The Green-Eyed Monster
By Kathleen W. Redman

1     "Mr. Lockman! Mr. Lockman!" John shouted.
2     Mr. Lockman turned around and found John at the other end of the hall. He waited for John to catch up with him.
3     "What's up, John?" Mr. Lockman asked.
4     "I could just punch that Darion right in the eye!" John said.
5     "Wow! Why are you feeling so violent?" Mr. Lockman asked.
6     "I don't know. Well, I do know, but I don't want to tell you. Well, maybe I could tell you if you promise you won't laugh at me. Are you sure you can keep your word? I mean, it would be awful if you told anyone and . . ."
7     "Whoa, John. Slow down a little bit. Take a deep breath. Of course I won't laugh at you. I never tell anyone what someone else says to me. And, yes, I do keep my word. Now what is it that is bad enough to make you want to punch Darion?" Mr. Lockman looked very serious.
8     "Oh." John took a deep breath. "Well, you know Michele. I really like her a lot. She is pretty and she talks to me and she is nice to me. I really like her."
9     "I understand," Mr. Lockman smiled. "Michele is special to you."
10     "Yes, that's right," John said. "We have been friends for a long time, but she is better than just a friend."
11     "I've got it," Mr. Lockman said. "What does this have to do with Darion?"
12     John's face turned a little bit red. "That stupid Darion! He decided to be nice to Michele. I know he did it just to make me mad!"
