“Today’s math test was quite easy. I was worried for no reason" said Sarah to her friends. The results were out and Sarah got the highest marks in that test. The teacher told everybody to be prepared for the next test. Sarah thought that as the first test was very easy so the second test will also be easy. After the class Sarah’s friends invited her for a group study but she suggested them that as the first test was easy, so the second one will also be easy and if they want they can come along with her to watch movie. But her friends refused and she went alone to watch the movie.

Next day when she got the question paper she couldn't write anything. She got her results and she failed. She was talking with her friends, "How could Ms. Lauren make the question paper of the second test so hard? The first one was so easy. She didn't do this thing right. I scored the highest marks in the first test and failed in the second test."

Ms. Lauren heard her talking, broke their conversation and said, “Sarah! Did I say that because the first test was easy, so the second test will also be easy?” Sarah said "No. But ..."Ms. Lauren said "No! No but. I didn't say that the second test would be easy. On the contrary, I said that everyone should be prepared for the second test." Sarah apologized to Ms. Lauren and promised to do well in the next test.

Sarah became very sad. When she entered the house, she went straight to her room and locked the door. She spend the day in her room. Then Sarah's mother called her for dinner. Sarah goes downstairs to have dinner. Sarah has a younger brother named Michael. Sarah and Michael sit at the table washing their hands. Michael started crying after seeing the food. Sarah’s mother asked him, "What happened, Michael?” He replied "Mommy, why did you cook vegetables today? You could cook egg curry or any other meat! You made a beef curry yesterday. That was very tasty.” Sarah’s mother explained "Michael! Your body will suffer from lack of nutrition if you eat fun foods all the time. You can't eat the same food all the time. Sarah yelled in excitement, "That's right! That's what Ms. Lauren was trying to explain to me! Mommy, pack my food and put it on the table. I’ll do math now, after finishing, I will eat."

Then Sarah sat down and did the entire math. The next day Sarah went to Ms. Lauren and said "Thank you! Thank you very much for telling me my mistake. I realized my mistake and am trying to correct it.” Ms. Lauren said, "I'm glad you understood your mistake and corrected it, and that's why I'll give you another chance!” Sarah asked "What kind of chance?” Ms. Lauren said "You will get another chance to give your second test! I hope you will give a good test this time. After the class, come to me to give the test and then go home.” Sarah dances in joy. Sarah used this chance and did very good result in the repeat test.
