Penny Bloom Meets a Helmeted Boy

Penny Bloom took a step to the left as the rubber ball whizzed past her head. She looked over her right shoulder and only saw a tree. She looked over her other shoulder and saw a head sticking out from behind the tree. It quickly retreated. She picked up the ball and walked towards the tree. "I know you're there," she said. "You don't know anything," the tree replied. Penny walked around the tree. A short boy in a football helmet stared up at her. "I'm keeping this," she said, holding up the rubber ball in her hand. Before the boy had a chance to protest, Penny ran off with the ball. A small "No!" followed her all the way home.
