I don't have a title for this. Can you suggest one?

Who told him?
"Brady Coons is a big fat liar!" I screamed across the lunch room. The stoplight on the wall was a yellow from the loud lunchroom noise, but with my announcemnt, the room fell silent and the light turned green.
With all eyes on me, I stalked over to Brady.
"Take it back!" I shouted.
"You will take it back or else."
The lunch lady, Mrs. Grubmacher was starting to make her way over. I'd have to do this quick.
"Or else what?"
I did the only thing I could think of that would really irk him. I kissed him full on the lips. He sputtered and began a sort of flailing dance to try to get the cootie girl germs off him. His friends had backed up. None of them wanted to be near him and risk Cooties.
Then to seal the deal forever I repeated the dreaded words, "Circle Circle Knife Knife, Now you got them all your life."
I sat waiting outside Principal Jergin's office and smiled on the inside. How much trouble could I really be in? I didn't hit him after all. I just kissed him. And it was worth it. Now, no one would ever think that I "liked" Brady. My secret was safe; It was a brilliant plan.
