Before Terry could leave, Tanner cornered him and suggested that the two of them could go to a movie. Terry laughed and replied, "Sorry squirt, but I've got a date with someone a lot cuter than you tonight. Maybe when I'm home for Christmas."
A few minutes later, you heard a crash from the boys' bedrooms. When you investigate, you see the door to Terry's room is open and his light is on. You know he's gone, so you stick your head in to see what's what. What you find is Tanner and a broken trophy.
"What's going on?" you snap?
"I hate him. Why's he gotta be so mean? Why's he want to hang out with some ol' girl, anyway?"
The trophy was most valuable player on Terry's little league team, and it meant a lot to him. Considering where the pieces are, it's hard to believe it was an accident. What kind of answer are you going to give Tanner?
