?You stole Freddie!? Billy yelled, pushing George in the chest.
George stumbled backwards, slipped and fell in the mud. All the other kids began laughing as George sat there looking up at a furious Billy.
?I didn?t steal Freddie.? George tried to hold back the tears. ?Why would I want him??
?To get me into trouble.? Billy kicked at the mud, splashing more over George.
