The plan included going to Karlson's house. Smidge had always wanted to go to his house. He didn't asked permission to his parents. His house was in the roof of his house. When Smidge got there he was a little disappointed. Smidge imagined something way better like with more fun. Then they started a game. The game had to do with something of being ill. Karlson wasn't treating Smidge good enough. Smidge got a little upset and mad at him.
