Reeds - Round 11
The headmaster smiled and followed Claire inside.
"Is this the young man you were speaking of?" he announced when he walked in.
Claire beamed at her first born. "Yes, this is Charles." Then, motioning to Charles, she said, "Charles, meet the headmaster. He came to see if you and Wilbur might attend Crumplebottom's Academy."
Claire waved him away and continued her tour.
"Done!" Charles yelled.
"Then it's tickle time!" Wilbur yelled as he rushed in and started tickling his little brother.
Charles giggled. "Hey! Guess what!" he announced after they'd stopped. "Mom got us into private school! Isn't that great?!"
Wilbur tried to act cool. "No big deal," he said, but inside he was excited. He couldn't wait to transfer schools! It'd be so much easier to get into college!
"Sorry Dad," he mumbled.
