Bitter gasped. "But I haven't set anything lately!"
"Well then, you need to remember where each and every single one of your pranks have been set! Because I swear..." I glanced down and saw the puddle. "Did you have an accident?!"
Bitter reared back with affront, "NO! I've been potty-trained since I was a baby!"

"Umm.. wait... what did you hear?" I asked.
Bella whispered the rumor to me and my mouth dropped. "Let me assure you, that is far from the truth!"
This was like some sort of horrible telephone game where the message gets more and more twisted!
"Anything for you, Simone!"
Kerry frowned and scratched his head. "Ohhh.... yeah...."
"Says who?" I joked.
