Mr. Big realized his plan would not be easy pull off. He had disliked the ban on sodas from the vey beginning. His plan was to steal all soda machines in the world. There was, however, a big problem.

On the day of the long-anticipated Pelham Elementary School 4th grade geography bee, the children lined up to answer their questions. Bob was the 3rd child in line and was asked if Jackson was the capital of Mississippi or Missouri. Even though the answer to the question was Mississippi, Bob said Missouri and was out of the geography bee. He was asked to sit down and cheer on his friends. Bob still had fun, though, because he got to cheer on his friend Billy, who won the bee! Besides, there was always next time for Bob to win.

The spooky looking plant looked as it was staring at me, screaming for it to be set free, but how? I thought for a long time, while the other children where throwing blockes or having a spitting contest I was thinking of a plan to help something, something that our world needs. It came to me, I could plant the plant! It would spread its seeds and create more of itself. It was pouring outside, perfect. How could I get it outside with twenty eyes constently looking at me and without me coming back in wet.
