Will: So who were they, then?
Will: What do you mean,"who"? The ones trying to embed sweets into your skull.
Marcus: Oh, them. Just a couple of older kids. They started following me after school.
Will: Does this happen often?
Marcus: They've never chucked sweets before. They only just thought of that one.
Will: I'm not talking about sweets. I'm talking about kids trying to kill you.
Marcus: Oh, yeah, they give me a hard time, you know, about my hair and my clothes and singing stuff.
Will: And what? And singing?
Marcus: Sometimes I sing aloud without noticing.
Will: That's not a brilliant idea, is it?
Marcus: I did it without noticing. It just happens. I'm not gonna do it on purpose, am I? I'm not stupid , you know.
Will: My advice is just keep out of people's way, make yourself invisible.
Marcus: How? Is one of the machines in your kitchen an invisible machine? I don't think so. I just try not to think of it , that's all. It happens , and I wish it didn't. But that's life，isn't it? There's nothing I can do about it.
Will: No. There is something we can do about it. You're coming with me.
Marcus: I was worried Will was going to take me to the headmistress's office. But instead, he took me shopping.
