Jake is walking out of school, disappointed because he got a 60 on his math test and he is afraid that he will not be able to play on the basketball team.
As Jake crawled home, his dad was waiting at the door, his dad looked a at him and asked "what did you get on your math test today? Jake said, "I got a 60 on it.
Jakes dad was very angry at Jake because he is now failing math, and that also means that he can't play on the basketball team at his school.
Jake stormed into his room with anger and emotion, he was mad because he can't be on the basketball team. His next day got worse, the big bully mike was being mean and Jake and Jake got a black eye because mike punched him and it sounded like a slap on concret.
Jake got home, and his dad asked why he had a black eye. Jake told him why and his dad then asked what he got on today's math test and he said that he got a 95 on it and his dad was proud of him.
So the next day Jake went to school and Jakes coach came up to him and he said that since he passed his math final, he could be on the basketball team, because he took time to study and get a better grade.
