The class was reticent, unusual. Everyone was revising for the year end English Examinations. I quickly took my textbook and joined them. I did not want to do badly for the exams.
"All students, please report to the examination hall." Echoed the loudspeaker. Everyone was tensed up, even me myself, event though I hardly got tensed up. My face turned as white as a ghost, my legs were as wobbly as jelly, and I felt butterflies in my stomach.
Just outside the hall, I opened my bag. To my surprise, my pencil case was not there! I started to panic, butterflies in my stomach turned into bats in my stomach!
I went up to my good friends and asked them if they could lend me a pen or two. "Too bad, not my problem!" they all said. I felt hurt, left alone, as though the whole world was against me. "Do u need some stationery?" I heard. One of my classmates was willing to lend me some stationery. " Yes!" I replied. I finally saw light through the tunnel! I felt so thankful towards him kindness and thanked him profusely.
I stepped into the hall, took in a deep breath to calm my mind. After the examinations, I went up to him and thanked him for saving my life.
When I went home that day, I realised that a good friend is a friend who supports and helps you when you are in need.
