Matt Falsely Accuses Jonathan Of Stealing
There are two middle school students who are really good friends: Matt and Jonathan.
Imagine that one day you go to your locker to get your lunch money. Much to your surprise, the lunch money is not there. Your immediate impulse is to imagine that someone has stolen your lunch money. But who?
Next thing you know, you look up and see one of your really good friends brandishing money around. Naturally, you think it must be yours. Right away, you demand, "Give it back?"
As for your friend, it really is his money. He was just holding it up as if to say, "I have my lunch money. Go get yours and let's get to lunch. I'm starving!"
That is how the story of Matt and Jonathan begins. Due to this misunderstanding, Matt ends up punching Jonathan in the nose.
If you were Jonathan, would you ever forgive Matt? Find out what happens by reading the story included in the link at the bottom of the hub.
