Henzelโ€™s POV

It was 6:45 in the morning, while I was asleep. not only me but also all my family members were asleep, as we went to bed so late yesterday.

Just then, my friend Abel called me. He always calls me on my phone to wake me up for school. Heโ€™s more like an alarm to me. I attended the call.

Me: Hey dude, whatsup? (Half awake.)

Abel: Henzel, why werenโ€™t you attending the phone? I was trying you since 6:30. The school is about to start. Itโ€™s about to be 7โ€™O Clock. Donโ€™t be late.

Me: Yeah, Iโ€™m coming.

I hung the call and jumped out of my bed.

I took a sudden bath, put on my uniform, and grabbed my bag while going to the kitchen.

Though there were many members in our family, the morning felt quite peaceful, silent, and calm as everyone was asleep except me.

It was when I went to the kitchen I understood that there is nothing cooked for me to eat. I glanced at the clock. Itโ€™s 6:55. Anyhow, Iโ€™m gonna be late, then why canโ€™t I be more late? I opened the refrigerator, and I saw a big cake box. I took it out and opened it to find out a chocolate cake, with chocolate cake pops, chocolate cake balls, and chocolate cakesicles next to it. I had a piece from each. I had a great meal.

Just to be aware of the time, I glanced at the clock. Oh No! Itโ€™s 7:10. Iโ€™m ten minutes late. I was sure, if Iโ€™m gonna walk to school as usual I would be more late. To my luck, I saw Drake in his roomโ€™s balcony.

โ€œHey Drake, are you free right now?โ€

โ€œYeah, whatโ€™s the matter?โ€ He asked.

โ€œCan you drop me at school? Please.. Iโ€™m already ten minutes late.โ€ I pleaded.

โ€œOkay, wait a sec.โ€ He said.

It took him five minutes to come. He gave me a lift in his car.

On our way to school, I opened my bag to put my phone in it. It was then, I realized that my bag only contain a notebook.

โ€œUhโ€ฆ Drake would you please stop the car?โ€ I asked.

โ€œWhatโ€™s it?โ€ He stopped the car.

โ€œIโ€™ll walk from here, you can go,โ€ I said getting out of the car.

โ€œGet in, Iโ€™ll drop you.โ€

โ€œItโ€™s okay, itโ€™s a short walk from here to school. I can walk.โ€ I smiled.

โ€œOkayโ€ He started the car to leave.

โ€œUh... Drake.โ€ I called him as he was about to leave.

He raised an eyebrow at me.

โ€œCan you give me some dollars? I forgot to take my pen. Iโ€™ll buy it from the supply store near the school if youโ€™ll give me the money.โ€ I said.

โ€œOkay, here you go,โ€ He said giving me $ 20.

I walked over to the supply store and bought a pen, and walked over to my class. As I had no watch with me I was not aware of the time.

I came and stood in front of my classโ€™ entrance. I saw everyone scribbling something. Oh, the teacher has already started giving notes!

โ€œMaโ€™am, may I get in?โ€ I asked the teacher who was roaming around the class.

โ€œHenzel! Where were you? Donโ€™t you know you have an exam today?โ€ The teacher asked

What? exam? Uhoh?
