Emily had an idea. She told it to their teacher. She knew that both girls always went on every field trip. Her idea: over night "friendship field trip" to the field. This field trip was going to be odd, because the teacher would divide the children into pairs (Cleo and Elise together, of course). One person in every pair was supposed to bring a tent, and each child would bring their own sleeping bag.
Mrs. Windwick agreed that they needed to get Cleo and Elise to be friends and started dividing the children. Cleo and Elise were so disappointed to be a pair. After a long time of fighting (half an hour and 82 seconds) they finally decided that Elise would bring the tent. The field trip was supposed to be in a week on Tuesday to Wednesday. Everybody was excited, except for Cleo and Elise.
