Trey walked forward. “Hey teach,” he said.

The teacher looked at him, waiting, and Trey sighed. He reached up. “Higher,” the teacher said. Trey pushed higher with his arm. “Higher,” the teacher said again.

“Thank you,” the teacher said, as he noted where Trey had reached. “Next.”

Trina stepped forward and said, “Hey teach.” She looked nervous, being half a head shorter than Trey.

“Go ahead,” the teacher said to her, and Trina lifted her arms.
