et out of here!” Alex shouted. “This is the boys’ bathroom!”
Kaylee had followed Alex around for exactly three weeks. It was common for Alex to take washroom breaks, especially when Mrs. Oxford had a spelling test. However, it was not common for a little girl to follow him into the boy’s bathroom.
“But I’m not finished talking to you.” Kaylee folded her arms and frowned.
Alex could not believe what was happening. “I don’t care! I need to pee!”
“So? Pee. Your ears still work when you pee, you know. Do you want to know how I know?”
Alex had to do something. He had to do something immediately. The problem was he didn’t know what to do. He’d planned to complain to her teacher, but Kaylee refused to tell him what class she was in. Alex even tried talking to Principal Gordon, but he was always too busy.

“Are you avoiding another spelling test? Is that why you’re in here? Do you drink a lot of water? Is that why you pee a lot?”
“No! Go away.”
“Are you going to wash your hands when you’re done? The bathroom has germs everywhere. Want to know how I know?”
“Are you going to play with me at recess?”
“No. I’m not. Go.”
“I’m not leaving until you say ‘yes.’”
