The Conflict

One day Wallace got assigned afternoon detention, during football practice with Mr.Fogleman at the gym. Mr.Fogleman was actually directing a play when Wallace was supposed to come for detention, so Wallace had to observe the play for finishing his "incomplete." While at drama ( for the next month, because he didn't finish it yet ) he noticed some vandalisms at the set. Rachel and Nathanial automatically jumped to conclusions thinking it was Wallace, but the rest of the drama team didn't think the same. One certain vandalism occurs, and Wallace was framed, with that conflict, it turned about the whole school furious at him.
