Alex Cardoso's been hiding. He often gets in trouble. He's hidden every time he's gotten in trouble. He's hidden himself so his parents can't yell at him. In fact, he is not a bad boy, but his parents are very strict.
He has to do four hours of homework everyday, and if he does not do it they yell at him. So he's often hidden their red pens so they couldn't check his homework.
They've had to spend time looking for the red pens, and then Alex's hidden himself. In fact, it is sort of fun for him. He's hidden in many creative ways and it is a skill for him.
