Cashews spilled all over the table, and Sarah dropped the bag and tried to keep them from scattering farther. The silence was broken; however, when she looked up everyone in study hall was staring at her. She groaned inwardly and sunk down in her chair. The other kids looked back at their work. Luckily, Sarah saw, Mr. Jenkins hadn't noticed the nut catastrophe. She scooped all the cashews back into a pile and put them by handful back in the bag.
