Could it be your eyes? - Episode 2
17 yrs later
I looked at all sixtychildren boys and girls alike. It was a long time Sixteen years!and it was time to decide who would graduate and who would not. I looked at Soni and groaned heavily. He was the only child giving me problems all these years. "Hi karate master!" the children greeted excitedly. I looked around and gave a smile as I announced the score of every other child 100 percent and the whoops and yelps of children but when it got to Soni I announced breathlessly"20 Percent"and the rest children mumbled.
Hiding under the chair with his brown eyes,soni hid under a chair . He did not deserve to be in a school for those trained to be strong and heartless when he couldn't even hurt a fly. If he was not forced Soni would have been out of here a long time ago.
"Looks like he won't graduate!"a voice said loud enough to be heard.
His lip quivered and Soni just stared.
"Let's give Soni another chance for old times sake.... come up here boy..." I ordered. Soni mounted up the podium and looked at me.
"Soni.....if your aunt killed your mom but while in the act,she hit her head and started bleeding to death what will you do?"I ask smiling and all eyes fell on him.
The hall grew silent everyone was waiting for what I was going to say. I knew that if I said a bad response I would please uncle Carlos but I also knew lying was wrong.

. so I said in a firm voice"I'll call the ambulance and rush them both to the hospital!" I waited, looking at his angry eyes. They were not really pleased at my answer and then there were mummerings. I didn't expect the consequence to be so severe as uncle Carlos gave me a hot slap. I held my cheeks,"You!I tried giving you every Training a ninja and villian should need but since you chose to disobey me,you are hereby expelled. you shall go to a school for normal teens and live a miserable life!"he declared.
I started crying and begging him but he just walked away admist angry mutterings.
I looked at my brother again. He gave me the stink eyes. "oh come on T you Know how Soni is and I'm sure he's not going to graduate"Troy argued. "You are wrong Troy for over how many years,he has been trained and now I know he's going to come out strong"I said. "Children stop arguing and come and eat!"mom ordered from the dining. I closed my eyes and just prayed that Soni should make me proud and come home victorious.
IF YOU'RE CONFUSED SONI WENT TO A SCHOOL WHERE PEOPLE ARE TAUGHT TO BE TUFF AND ADAPT TO THE HARSH REALITY. BUT BECAUSE OF HIS KIND NATURE HE HAS REFUSED TO BE MOLDED BY THE TRAINING THUS ANNOYING HIS TEACHER.
