Chapter 5

Devon and Zora sat at a table in the cafeteria after closing working on sketch ideas.

"What about Alice in Hip-Hop Land?" Devon asked.

"That's a great idea!" Zora cheered. "I'll be Alice and you can be the Mad Hatter!"

"No," Devon said. "The Mad Scatter!"

Devon began to beatbox.

"My name is the Mad Scatter and I'm here to say, you seemed so trapped in Hip-Hop Land today!" Devon rapped.

Zora began to laugh.

"Needs work," Zora laughed.

Tawni walked into the cafeteria.

"What are you doing?" Tawni asked.

"Working on a sketch," Devon replied.

"I was talking to Zora," Tawni said coldly.

"Hey!" Zora shouted.

"Zora," Devon said. "It's fine."

"No it's not!" Zora shouted. "Devon has been nothing but kind to you and you've been nothing but rude to him! You apologize to him now!"

"Fine," Tawni said in a hateful tone. "I'm sorry."

"What will it take for you to like me?" Devon asked.

"Can you magically turn into Sonny?" Tawni asked.

"I know you miss her," Devon said. "I know everyone misses her. But please, can you give me a chance?"

Tawni looked at Devon and sat down at the table.

"So what sketch ideas do you have?" Tawni asked.

Devon smiled.

"How do you feel about Alice in Hip-Hop Land?" Devon asked.
