The Person all caught up and Ready to Go: Me
“What are you kids doing here?!” A man shouted.
Kate and Lisa spun around and saw a policeman standing in front of them.
“We’re uh…” Kate stammered, as the pipers marched out of sight. “trying to find out if – ”
“ – bagpipes sound different under bridges.” Lisa interrupted.
Kate shot Lisa a look.
“Right. I’m sure that’s it.” The policeman said, escorting the girls up the hill.
The parade underway, the sidewalk was filled with spectators. The policeman told the girls to steer clear of the bridge, and he walked away.
Kate nudged Lisa. “If bagpipes sound different under bridges?”
“What?! I didn’t want you to tell him why we were there.”
“Yeah, once I heard the bagpipes.”
Lisa started to speak. Suddenly, spectators lunged forward, knocking her into the parade, and twelve drummers drumming swept her away.
