Earlier, after school, my friends and I had gone out to buy a secret Christmas present for our other friend, Kate, who was moving schools next year. We went to a busy store that was full of Christmas themed gifts, but also, there was a TV crew. We didn’t think it mattered. We were wrong.
Now, I’m looking, horrified, at the TV, at my friends and I holding up Kate’s future present and saying how much she would love it. We seemed to be on the television. Our gift wasn’t a secret anymore, there is absolutely no doubt about it.
