The mysterious First Aid box in schoolEmily and Anastasia meet up at corridor during the recess. "Why did Mrs. Martin bring that box and put it on the classroom cupboard?",asked Emily drinking her chocolate milk. "We are going to find out in some minutes. Evil Mrs. Martin has swallowed half of our recess period for some demo- demi- ..", stuttered Anastasia. "It is called demonstration dummy", Emily laughed.
"Yes. That. I saw a red cross on it. The symbol looks like a chain that mom wears to church", said Anastasia. Emily says,"It has nothing to do with church. There was a fire symbol and skulls and bones too. There were also symbols of knives and blood. I bet something scary is inside the box. Shall we open it?"
Anastasia is visually irritated by the observations and implications of her friend. She always thought Emily was such a show off. "I would never do that. We should listen to elders. We don't know what could be inside it", Anastasia says unwilling to budge to Emily's ideas. "You are scared even before opening the box. Chicken!", Emily mocks her newly made friend. Emily tosses the packet of chocolate milk near the dustbin, but it misses and falls on floor. This action sparked anger in Anastasia. All of her boxed up frustration came out. "Pick it up and put it in trash! Now!", Anastasia scorned.
"Huh? What has gotten into you suddenly?", before Emily could complete, Anastasia pinches her ears and pulls her towards the bin. "Do it", she demanded Emily, who was shook by this sudden uprising. Her denial slowly grew into anger and both friends pummel each other in school corridor. Other students rush to stop the duel but Anastasia pushes Emily into their classroom. Emily gets launched onto the cupboard. Impact, made the first aid box placed on the cupboard, to fall on Emily's head, further hurting her. Mrs. Martin, following the time and chaos in class appeared near the door. She saw that Emily has cuts on her face from Anastasia's nails.
She gave both girls a terrorizing look and the duel was resolved. Chaos diffused and classroom filled up with students. Mrs. Martin opens the first aid box and says ,"Our friend Emily will now be the volunteer for my demonstration." First aid box was no longer a mystery.
