Encouraging links between students and school staff around the globe
“Now don’t forget,” said the woman. She gave me the envelope. “Promise you’ll remember. Give this to your dad the instant you get home, all right?”
“I’ll remember,” I said.
But then at school, I forgot my maths homework, and got put in detention, and then I got into a row with Ms Rasheed because I didn’t go, and I had a fight with my best friend, and went off in a huff to the park with Allie and Jamie and Fatima, and we had a mud fight, which was brilliant, and then when I got home my mum yelled at me because I was covered in mud, and in the chaos I forgot all about the envelope at the bottom of my bag.
And it wasn’t until the next week, when my dad wasn’t there, and the police were asking me all those questions, that I remembered.
