- It all began with a whopping parcel of tuck which Horace Coker of the Fifth received from his Aunt. Bunter, being very fond of tuck, in no time at all had that parcel cached in the old Cloisters where he could deal with it at his leisure. Unfortunately he was seen by Mr. Prout who naturally arranged for Mr Quelch to deliver some resounding whacks on Bunter's seat.He vowed revenge, announcing his intention of bestowing a raw egg on Mr. Prout. Coker, also in trouble with Mr. Prout expressed his annoyance by throwing a tomato at him for which Bunter got the blame and was promptly sacked. Bunter didn't take this lightly and was soon back at Greyfriars.
