The offer of a free breakfast was too much for a teenager to resist - which is why he battered his ex-girlfriend to death.
Sixteen-year-old Joshua Davies has been found guilty after murdering Rebecca Aylward, 15, in October 2010.
Swansea Crown Court was told that Davies, from Aberkenfig in Wales, lured the girl to a secluded spot where he killed her to win a bet over a free breakfast, Britain's Daily Mail has reported.
"Rebecca and her mother Sonia had both been delighted when Davies, an academically gifted boy from a churchgoing family, arranged to meet her again," it reported.
"When her daughter failed to come home, Mrs Aylward's reaction was to tell her sister not to worry adding: 'She's safe, she's with Josh.'
"By that time Rebecca had been bludgeoned with a rock the size of a rugby ball - and Davies was trying to cover his tracks on Facebook."
The Mail said the "chilling case" had highlighted how Davies used the internet, text messages and "an array of social networking sites to plot her death".
"A few weeks before the murder, one of his friends had joked that he would 'buy him breakfast' if he carried out his threat," The Mail said.
"He then took a friend to the scene to show him her body," The Mail reported.
"Davies told him: 'Do you know how hard it is to break someone's neck? She was facing away from me and I thought, 'This is it, I'm going to go for it'.

A 16-year-old boy who battered his former girlfriend to death has been publicly named for the first time after being found guilty of her murder.
Swansea Crown Court heard Joshua Davies "sometimes" hated Rebecca and a friend offered to buy him breakfast after suggesting that he "get rid of her".
Davies denied murder blaming his friend but will be sentenced in September.
An order banning the identification of Joshua Davies was lifted after he was convicted by a 10-2 majority verdict following the trial.
Rebecca's family clapped and shouted "yes" as the verdict was delivered after 19 hours and 55 minutes of deliberation, which began last Friday afternoon.
The defendant's mother was in tears, but he showed no emotion as the verdict was read out.
A Schoolboy was yesterday convicted of bludgeoning to death 15-year-old Rebecca Aylward to win a free breakfast from his friends.
Joshua Davies,16, lured Aylward, his ex-girlfriend, to a wood where he battered her with a rugby ball-sized rock.
He was found guilty by a jury which deliberated for three days.
Cheers erupted from the victim’s family in public gallery as the verdict was read. Impassive Davies broke down.
The judge, Mr Justice Lloyd Jones, warned Davies he would be sentenced later for an “indefinite duration”.
Justice Jones agreed to Davies being identified for the first time, saying: “This is a crime in a small and closely-knit community and it is right that the public should know there has been a conviction and who has been convicted.”
After the hearing, Aylward’s family said: “The pain and horror of losing Rebecca in such horrendous circumstances cannot be put into words.
“Rebecca was killed in a senseless and barbaric act. She died at the hands of someone she loved and trusted. We will never forget what he did to her or forgive him for destroying our family.”
With all due respect, if this makes you "sick" you're probably not the type that would "double tap" that kid anywhere.
