While two teenagers house sit their neighbor's house, an incident occurs.
Debbie shrugged. "I didn't make you do it, Kace," she uttered casually. "You made yourself do it."
"You pushed me and made me spill my fruit punch!" she accused Debbie.
"It was an accident!" Debbie's voice raised as she began to get annoyed.
"Ugh! Why do you have to be such a klutz, sometimes?" Kaci threw her hands up in frustration.
Debbie rolled her eyes and mocked her friend's outburst. "Why do you have to be such a klutz sometimes?"
"This isn't funny!" Kaci snapped. "We need to find a way to fix this!" She frantically scanned the room to find something to clean the mess up. She then bolted towards the kitchen and grabbed a packet of towelettes from the granite counter.
"I don't see why you're making such a big deal out of this," Debbie stated as Kaci returned to the living room. "It's just a small stain."
Ignoring her, Kaci tore open the packet and tried with the best of her ability to wipe off the debris. The harder she had rubbed, the larger the stain grew.
Tears began to form in her eyes. "Oh, my God! This is hopeless! What is she going to say? What is she going to do?"
"Relax, Kace," Debbie stated. "We only have a few hours until Mrs. Ruff comes back. I don't think it will take us that long to remove a stain."
As she tried to calm her friend down, a knock on the door sounded.
"Hello, girls!" a middle-aged woman's voice rang on the other side of the door. "It's me, Mrs. Ruff. May I come in?"
