Episode 9 – “Two Smiling Boys”
“You’re late, Warren!” Michael looked angry at Warren as he started cycling again. “I have waited ten minutes for you. We are going to be late for school!”
“Sorry, I took the long road,” Warren said. “With that climb in it?” Michael asked. Warren gave him a nod. The two boys were in the same class. Every day they peddled to school together and shared all kind of stories with each other. “Did you learn for that test today?” Warren asked Michael.
“I wanted to, but I started dancing to the music on the television instead.”
“You fool, and you need to get a good grade for French!” Michael sighed. “Yeah, I know… but I prefer English class.”
The school came into sight. Mister Merckx stood outside and saw the two boys coming. “Hurry up!” he yelled at them. The boys looked at each other and started sprinting. Michael was the first boy who entered the playground of the school.
“I won!” he screamed. He stopped his bike and Warren stopped next to him. “You won this time,” Warren said, but I will beat you in the mountains for sure. And now je veux un baguette!” Michael looked puzzled at him: “What?”
“You are so going to fail that test”, Warren said to him. And then both boys started laughing out loud as they walked into the school.
