Read the passage carefully. Then choose the correct answer.
 
Anaysh hated play dates. He tied his shoelaces already deciding to hate Rochelle, the new kid in town. If only Mother knew how stuck-up she was! Everyone in his school knew this. As he turned around to get his coat, Mithun shot water at his new red vest, specially selected for the occasion. He had finally relented to wearing it only upon his mother's insistence. "Mithun!" yelled Anaysh as he chased him around the house, hating having to entertain such childishness at his grand old age of eleven. Whoever said having a younger brother was fun!

Anaysh snatched the water gun from Mithun and dumped it behind the bushes out in front of the house. He could hear Mithun's cry erupt into a wail which would soon be accompanied by kicking and screaming. Anaysh quickly escaped through the kitchen door and walked down the street to the park.

"Hey, Anaysh! Not off on your date yet?" teased Donovan, his classmate, joining him. Anaysh walked on and pretended not to hear. "Come on, I was just kidding," he continued.

"Drop it, Don! I'm not in the mood for any of your tricks," warned Anaysh.

Donovan retrieved a plastic rose from his shirt pocket and twirled it around, enticing Anaysh to ask about it. Anaysh continued staring at it, not understanding how a plastic flower could be of use to him. "That's where you're wrong. You know how Rochelle is. You could put Rochelle in her place with this. Her mother would surely hit the roof when she comes to hear of it," he finished.

The rose had a tiny button on its short stem, hidden from view by one of its leaves. When Donovan pressed it, the petals opened up with a jerk, revealing a tiny tube inside. "You fill it with water and when she presses it, it squirts water all over her," he said.

Anaysh liked the sound of it. Perhaps, this was the perfect plan to put an end to any more play dates with girls.
