After the math exam came the English exam. Before the test began, everyone sat quietly at their desks, reviewing the information in their textbooks. Only Victor acted very nervous. He anxiously flipped back and forth in his book, and Jimmy saw that Victor seemed different. He asked Victor, “What’s wrong?” Victor said nothing and just shook his head.
As everyone was preparing for the test, Victor suddenly lay on his desk and began to cry. The sound of his cries got the attention of Teacher Rolin and all of Victor’s classmates. Teacher Rolin ran to Victor’s side, kneeled down, and asked him, “Victor, what’s wrong? What happened?”
Victor raised his head, his eyes wet with tears, and said, “The test is beginning, and I feel so nervous and scared. My English isn’t very good. I’m worried I’ll do poorly. I couldn’t hold it in and started crying.”
Teacher Rolin patted Victor on the head and said, “Everyone is a little nervous when they take tests, but if you take your studies seriously and review the lessons, you won’t have any problems during the test. Just do your best, and don’t give yourself too much pressure.”
Jimmy and the other classmates also came over to comfort Victor. Iris said to him, “If you feel nervous, just close your eyes and breathe.” Victor did as she said, and it seemed he wasn’t so nervous anymore.
Then the bell rang, and everyone got ready to begin the test. Because of everyone’s encouragement, he was again confident, stopped crying, smiled, and began walking to the test area. He overcame his nervousness.
After they completed their test, the summer vacation would begin. What would happen during the vacation? Let's find out next week. See you then.
Goodnight. Sweet dreams.
