Donald walked the last three blocks home alone. He didn’t mind being alone, in fact he liked it. He thought of what he would do when he got home. He would tell his mother he needed to study and build a fort in his room.
He didn’t think of it as lying because to him studying often meant being alone with his thoughts and his grades were good so his mother didn’t nag him.
He could play with his Legos in his fort without anyone bothering him. Donald liked to build things like walls and forts. They kept people out.
