Thomas and David sat by Troy. Thomas and David both seemed a bit nervous about copying.
"I don't want to cheat. I will just do my best. This is what I get for not studying."
"I want to play baseball, but David is right. This doesn't feel right anymore."
Everyone begins staking their papers on the teacher's desk. Thomas is the last to put his paper on the pile.
"Okay class. Please put your tests up here on my desk."
The bell rings and everyone darts out of the room.....
"I just didn't know anything that was on this test. Therefore, I just didn't do it."
As David was walking out, he over heard Thomas' and the teacher's conversation.
"Thomas, before you leave, I have to ask. Why didn't you write anything on your test?
"Ms. W, I think I can explain for Thomas and also me. Honestly, the both of us didn't study for this test. I tried my best, however I also didn't write anything on paper."
"Is this true Thomas?"
"Well I do have to admit, I am a little upset you two forgot to study, however, I appreciate the honesty from the both of you. I do have to give you a consequence though. Study for the test this weekend, and then during your recess you two can come in a take the test. Does that sound like a deal?"
