What? exam? Uhoh?

โ€œExam? Oops. Forgot to take leaveโ€ I said with widened eyes. Unfortunately, I was a little louder that everyone heard it. I suddenly covered my mouth with my hand.

โ€œHenzel! What?โ€ She asked.

โ€œNothing madam.โ€

โ€œHmโ€ฆ go and sit.โ€ She said giving me an answer paper and a question paper.

I hold the paper and stood there not knowing what to do.

Just then Abel stood up in his place, โ€œMaโ€™am, additional sheet.โ€

I stood there helpless.

โ€œWhy are you standing here like a fool? Go sit and right.โ€ The teacher said.

I walked over to Abel and sat next to him. I gazed all around the class not knowing what to do.

โ€œHenzel! Start the exam.โ€ The teacher said.

I was so shocked. I had studied nothing for the exam.

โ€œMaโ€™am, Arenโ€™t latecomers eliminated from the examination?โ€ I asked in order to avoid attending the exam.

โ€œItโ€™s okay, you may write the exam.โ€ The teacher said.

I was certain I would flunk the exam because I had done nothing to prepare.

I chose to look at Abelโ€™s paper and write since I couldnโ€™t think of any other way to pass the exam.

โ€œAbel, Abel!โ€ I called him making sure that the teacher canโ€™t hear.

But she heard it. โ€œHenzel, write what you know, not what Abel knows. And you know what, I hate copycats.โ€

โ€œMaโ€™am, am I disqualified?โ€ I asked.

โ€œWhat? For what reason?โ€

โ€œMaโ€™am, I cheated in the exam and you caught it. So it means Iโ€™m disqualified. Right?โ€ I asked.

โ€œHenzel, no matter how hard you try, I will make you write the exam. Thatโ€™s for sure.โ€ said the teacher.

โ€œSorry maโ€™am, It was my sisterโ€™s wedding yesterday.โ€

โ€œThen you must have taken leave.โ€

โ€œI forgot,โ€ He said.

โ€œForgot what?โ€

โ€œI forgot to take leave,โ€

The teacher looked at him confused. โ€œOkay, your time starts nowโ€

I was trapped in every way.

I donโ€™t know what to write. At last, I wrote whatever I know from every single subject. I took almost seven sheets of paper and was done with the exam on time.
