\"Ah-choo!\" Sneezed Daniel. \"The race is in two more days...\" Thought Daniel. Daniel thought that no matter what, he has to win. Jennifer came in and walked up to him. \"You're not getting a cold, are you?\" Asked Jennifer, handing him a tissue. \"N-no...\" Replied Daniel. If he caught a cold, this would be awful timing. He has to win, no matter what.
\"I'm going to stay after school today to practice for the race.\" Said Daniel. Jennifer felt bad, she got him into this mess... \"Don't worry.\" Said Daniel. \"I'll win no matter what!\"
\"Be careful!\" Said Jennifer. \"I'll see you tomorrow!\" Daniel nodded and left out the door.
Daniel went to the field and started to practice. He did a few stretches then started to run. After an hour, he flopped down onto the grass breathing heavily. He took a sip of water from the water bottle in his backpack. Daniel sneezed again. He laid on the grass for about five minutes, thinking it's about time to go home. Suddenly, Jennifer's image came into his mind.
\"...Maybe a little longer.\" Thought Daniel. So he practiced for 30 more minutes.
Meanwhile, Jennifer, who was walking home, ran into Kevin. \"What do you want?\" Asked Jennifer. It sounded low and mean to her, but she wasn't trying to be mean.
\"I'm serious about you...\" He said coming closer. \"I'll give up if I lose, but just know I'm serious.\" He stared into Jennifer's eyes, as if trying to tell her without words.
\"Sorry, I don't feel the same way!\" Said Jennifer. \"But don't worry, after you lose, we can still be friends!\"
Kevin just stared at her while she had a happy face on. \"...Is she nuts?\" Thought Kevin to himself. \"I confess my love to her, and she brings up the word 'friends'???\" Kevin sighed sadly.
\"Either way, I won't lose!\" Said Kevin.
\"Bring it!\" Said Jennifer.
Let the race...begin!
