Shawn pulled a blanket off of the bed to find Ralph curled up in the fetal position. He appeared to be sleeping.

"Gosh-darn it!"
Bobby mused, somewhat annoyed. "Look, he was there the whole time." Bobby was annoyed. He gave Ralph a shove.

"w..w..w..w..wh?" Ralph said groggily. "i...i..i...i..i..i..did the homwork..." Ralph said sleepily, still sleeping.

Shawn breathed out a sigh of relief, glad to see Ralph was okay. Of course, there was still the matter of his homework. "Can we see?" He looked around for a notebook like the one he'd seen yesterday.

Shawn grabbed an adjacent notebook that was on the floor, turning through the pages until he found Ralph's writing. While he was reading the assignment, Ralph confirmed to Shawn the results of Ralph's sloppy answers and handwriting.

"i..i..bent the an..an..an..antenna on Dad's car." Ralph said. "Now..it's..it's..it's..broken. Don't tell your Dad." He said, referring to Shawn's Dad as his own Dad and Shawn's Dad in one pair of sentences.

"Sheesh. That's nothing. What do you have to do?" Bobby asked Shawn.

Shawn smiled at Ralph. "Good job - you're getting better at writing." He looked through his own bed for some sort of homework of his own.

Shawn reached under the bed, pawed around for the notebook and drew it out. He flipped through several pages and then found the new entry:

What it is: You light bag of poo and put it on Old man Kasich porch and ring door bell
Then you got answer on next page two qustions to write answer to:

Shawn went to the window and squinted out towards Old Man Kasich's house before looking back at Ralph and Bobby. This wasn't a nice thing to do, but if he did it right, hopefully his parents would never have to find out. Plus, he already knew where the lighter was, at least. "Hmm, looks like I've gotta ding dong ditch Old Man Kasich's house with a flaming bag of dog poop. What did you get, Bobby?"

Bobby and Ralph laughed. "Ha! You said ding dong!" Bobby cried with laughter.

After settling down, Ralph expressed fear that Shawn might get caught if he vandalized the Old Man's house. Bobby got straight to the point, announcing his homework with frankness "I have to stomp on Mrs. Peabody's flower garden. I think she's the old woman that lives down the block."

Shawn considered the tasks ahead of them. Like the previous day's homework, Shawn found himself more concerned with how to get away with these pranks than any problems with doing them in the first place. "Hmm, do you know if Mrs. Peabody's flower garden is in her front or backyard? If it's the back, maybe Ralph and I can knock on the door to distract her or something.""

"It's in the backyard for sure. I've seen her watering the yard. I'm pretty sure she does it every morning. She's an old woman and they like that kind of stuff. But, if you guys knock on the front door, what are you going to say? How are you going to keep her busy? I mean she doesn't know you and I don't know how many flowers I need to stomp."

Shawn considered Bobby’s questions for a moment. It was tricky, but he thought he saw a way. “Hmm, maybe we could say we’re collecting for a canned food drive? We could even visit a few other places first to make it seem realistic. It wouldn’t even be a lie if we dropped anything we get off at the church. And if you don’t know how many flowers, what does the homework say? If it just says ‘flowers’, then you only gotta do two, right?”

"Now you're talking! Now you know. And knowing is half the battle. G.I. Joe!" Bobby exclaimed.
"Now lets go get some cans and go to the church. We're under deep cover"

Shawn grinned back. "All right, we've got a plan now!" He looked over at the still groggy Ralph. "Are you up for this, Ralph?"

Ralph came forward with a small, shuffle. His stomach poked out from underneath a shirt that was too tight and too small. "Y..y...yes. W...we...we...we...need to b...b...b...be careful, OK? I...if...y..y...you...g...g...guys promise..." Ralph finished, hoping for some additional and unspecified assurance.

Shawn bent down a little so that he was eye-to-eye with Ralph. "Sure, Ralph, what do you need us to promise?"

Ralph went on to explain for the first time how he had seen things in The Master Maker's tent. Through sputtering starts and fits, he gradually told a tale of how good kids had made choices and done things that made them turn into 'bad boys'. Ralph wanted to make sure that they weren't going down a path that would make them into bad kids.

"OK?"

Shawn listened to Ralph’a story with a combination of confusion and interest. “But why does the Master Maker care about whether anyone is a good or bad boy? And were all these kids there, or did you just hear about them?” So far, in his experience the Circus has been more indiscriminately murderous. They didn’t really seem to care much about his behaviour.

"That's Ok Ralph, you can waste time. It's Ok because we need you." Bobby said the words without any malice or sarcasm. But after listening to what he uttered he gave a strange look, probably the result of the contradiction between what he had said and the wish Shawn had made.

"Ok. What homework do we tackle first?"

"Hmm, let's do yours first, Bobby. We could even stop by Old Man Kasich's place - like a scouting mission." Shawn tried to brush past Bobby's odd bit of contradiction, hoping he wouldn't think about it too much. He wasn't sure how Bobby might treat Ralph now after his wish, but keeping the two from fighting was really important to him.

"So it's a matter of stomping the Old Bag's flower garden first then?" Bobby asked, raising his eyebrows in Shawn's direction to see if he was game to tackle this portion of the homework.

Shawn nodded seriously, glad Bobby seemingly had let his moment of confusion slide. "Yeah - Ralph and I will get the wagon, we can grab some pamphlets from the church, and then we'll go door to door! We'll go down the street, so Mrs. Peabody's comes after Old Man Kasich's."

"Right!" Bobby agreed with an animated, enthusiastic grin.
