Sara was in the 9th grade and her friends, Tiffany, Crystal, Mary and Angela were in the 10th grade. One day Mary decided to play a prank on Sara but Tiffany, Crystal and Angela told her about it. Sara was ready to turn the game on Mary. The conversation started the usual and then Mary started to motion her plan and then she said, “I’m adopted and my adoptive parents make me clean in other people's homes so I earn". Mary kept worsening her made up story but then Sara revealed that she knew from the start. Everyone started laughing at Mary. Mary said annoyed, "You pranked me but I wanted to prank you".
