It really was rather annoying. It was wearing her parents down to a frazzle. Aurelia wanted to try the local hedge maze. She was only nine years old. She wanted to do it on her own.
It was summer time. Every time they drove passed the maze place Aurelia would pester her parents.
“Can I go in the maze on my own?”
“I want to go in the maze.”
“Let me do the maze.”
“Monica went in the maze.”
“Muriel went in the maze.”
“Why am I the only one not to have done the maze?”
Enough is enough! Aurelia’s mother stopped the car (she was driving).
“Here’s four dollars,” said her father. “We’ll pick you up in an hour.”
That was seventeen hours ago.
