“Oh my! I finally won the lottery!” Keil blurted as he turned around with a gigantic smile. “Gee whiz, I wish it was me that had one.” Alex pouted. “Golly Keil, are you going to share with me?” Trisha asked. “Wow! That’s a lot of money. You sure you don’t want me to have any?” Sadie said with a sly grin. “Jeepers, all this money that I now have gives me the shivers.” Keil spoke quietly. ‘Hey! Share with me!” Jackson screamed from across the room. “No, he’s giving it to me!” Caolan hollered back at Jackson. “Hush! As you can see, Keil will be giving me that ticket. “ Cera said with a calm, confident voice. “Excuse me the bell has rung and it’s time to read. Mr. Oberlander would you please come to my desk.” Mrs. Scott ordered as everyone pretended to read as they saw Keil get up and go to Mrs. Scott’s desk. “Mr. Oberlander, if you give me that ticket, you will have an A for the rest of the year. “
