Sue : It's really very unfair ! Why should she be receiving the prize when she is no more than a cheat ?

Theresa : Are you sure ? You may have been mistaken.

Sue : No chance of that ! I saw her. She took out a card with some small writing scribbled on it. She looked at it and then put it back in her pinafore pocket.

Theresa : But why didn't you tell Cik Zubaidah then ?

Sue : You know how it is. I don't like carrying tales to teachers. I don't like cheating but, actually, it wasn't really any of my business. I felt quite sorry for her too, I suppose. She always does so badly.

Theresa : But when she got the highest marks in class, you should have said something.

Sue : I told you. I thought it was none of my business. Even if she did get higher marks than me ...

Theresa : You should have guessed that she would win the Geography prize.

Sue : I thought that the marks for the whole year's test results were also going to be considered. How was I to know that they would decide to base their choice on the Final Exam only ?

Theresa : Well, we can't let her get away with it. Let's go and tell Cik Zubaidah now. She always tells us that, as she is our form teacher, we should go to her with all our problems.

Sue : Well, actually, I really hate carrying tales, you know. And, it seems odd to dig up old happenings like this. How can Cik Zubaidah take action on something that happened so long ago ?

Theresa : It seems to me like we've no choice.

Sue : Maybe we should just leave her to her own conscience. Hey, I've got an idea !

Theresa : Well ?

Sue : Why don't we talk to Ai Ling personally, instead. We can tell her that one of us saw her cheating ...

Theresa : And if she doesn't own up, we will tell on her ?

Sue : Well, maybe we can just say that we all know what she did and that we think she shouldn't get the prize.

Theresa : And if she doesn't do anything about it ?

Sue : Well, it'll be up to her. But, I think, if I were here, I'd rather own up.
