But they hadn’t been there very long when Victor started to feel unwell. Iris asked him, “Victor, we’re going to go fly our kites. Would you like to go?” Victor shook his head, held his stomach, and sat down.
“My stomach hurts. You guys go ahead.”
Victor sat on the park bench and rested a while. He saw everyone happily flying their kites and felt jealous. His stomach didn’t hurt that much, he thought, so he prepared to go join them, but just then, Pandora walked over with some ice cream. “Victor, does your stomach still hurt?”
Victor looked at the ice cream in Pandora’s hand, and began to drool. “Pandora, where’d you buy your ice cream?” Pandora pointed to the store.
Victor ran to the store and bought five ice creams, which he ate quickly and happily. Once finished, though, his stomach began to hurt even more! He held his stomach, and began rolling on the ground.
Pandora called over Teacher Rolin, who asked “Victor, had you eaten anything before this?”
Victor thought. “Yes, three packs of spicy ramen, two sodas, and… then these five ice creams.”
Teacher Rolin sighed. “Victor, eating a suitable amount is fine, but your stomach was hurting because you ate too much. Of course it hurt, and then you ate five ice creams, so of course it hurt even more. You must eat moderate portions. Don’t eat too much, or you’ll lose your health. How will you learn and play if you’re not healthy?”
Victor nodded. Teacher Rolin sent Victor to the hospital. Under the doctor’s care, Victor began to feel better.
After the start of the new semester, though, the school curriculum became more difficult. Why? We’ll find out next week.
