"Kelly's a bully," Dave Elevenpence complained. "Always pick'n' upon me, jess cos I caint swim. Well I try to but I jess too 'eavy for water."
If you wanna know the truth of it, everybody picked on Dave Elevenpence. But for some reason Kelly picking on him because he couldn't swim riled him up big time. "I jess wish Kelly couldn' swim, then I'd push 'im in the river."
Dave complained to Kelly's ma, but she smiled. "He don' mean nutn chile, jess a game," she said.
Tweren't just a game, though and Dave Elevenpence stormed away like a downpour.
