It was near the end of daycare, Alex was fighting with Thomas (as usual) and Mr. Washington was trying in vain to stop them. Vain was a word Alex taught Hercules, it sounded really important. Alex said that there were many ways to use the word “vain” but his favorite way is when you try really hard to do something but you fail. In fact, Alex and Hercules used it when writing the spy oath.
Today was a proud day for Hercules. Today was the day Peggy gra-ju-ated from spy training. He loved training Peggy, she was like a little spy sister to him, and she was going out into the real world to spy on strangers and make the world a better place. Today she was receiving her first o-ffi-shi-al a-sign -ment. Peggy was jumping up and down with excitement, the cer-ee-mo-ny was about to begin! Everybody gathered around to watch. Even Alex and T.jeff stopped fighting! That showed how much of a big deal this was. Mr. Washington breathed a sigh of relief. Then again Peggy was also jumping up and down with nervousness. Spy’s had a big re-spons-a-bil-i-ty. They needed to use the in-for-ma-shun they found to solve problems. But if you let the wrong person hear even a little of the in-for-ma-shun you found, it can create problems even bigger than the first. Peggy learned that the hard way. She cringed at the memory of when she accidently let Samuel know that Alex was going to prank Gorge. But that was then she was ready now.
