Abnormal evening, the eight sad faces sitting outside the Principal’s office room. All the staffs, faculties and students passing by inquiring us, but no one replies. I own one of the sad face. Time is running. Principal’s strict order not to leave the campus unless our parents talks with the administration. They asked the working parents to take permission leave and be present at school. We are waiting outside the office room sitting on the floor, ashamed to talk or face each other.
Jeba Samuel (myself), Soulwin , Joy Joseph David, Madhan , Jabez, Hari, Jeejo, Ajay (not involved in the mission as he joints the team later), Jenifer. You will get to know about each of these soldiers through the series of posts.
Few months earlier,
It is a normal day but not for us. Tomorrow is botany mid-term exam. Everyone is in fear. The first few chapters to be learned completely. Everyone is preparing for the exam. Girls are busy studying inside the class room. Principal madam is taking care of the botany subject. She asked the boys to sit outside the class and study for tomorrow’s exam. While we are studying, Principal madam is writing something on a notebook.
After few minutes, She turns her face to the boys and said,” Boys !! I’ll be back in few minutes. Don’t make noises. Sit and study and this is the question paper for tomorrow’s exam. Don’t look at this. I’ll be back”.
Principal madam leaves.
LIGHT BULB on everyone’s head.
The idea has just been planted on the head by principal madam.
We had two chances. Just to sneak inside the note for couple of seconds and learn that particular questions in 24 hrs or learn all the questions in 24 hrs and be surprised on the exam, which is not gonna happen.
One of them, slowly peaks inside the class room. The girls are so busy studying. We are so busy planning how to see that question paper.
Hari and Jeejo stood up from their place, walks toward the question notebook.
They opened the note gazed for a couple of seconds, runs back to the place and sits.
The heart starts to pump more blood. Few seconds of extreme tension.
“Whats the question…??”
“How many questions…??”
“Is she wrote Bisection of the stem..??”
Lots of whispers around me aimed at Hari and Jeejo.
Hari lifts his botany textbook and points at a paragraph. Suddenly everyone starts to study that question. Everyone became so sincere. No talking, no chatting.
Bell rang. Interval time.
“Can we share these questions with the girls..??”
“Don’t be a fool. We would be caught. So keep the mouth shut.”
“What are the other question..??”
“Don’t learn all the questions… Be wise and learn only three. Jeba, Joy and Jenifer you learn two questions.”
“Pray that she should not change the questions”
Everyone leaves the school thinking tomorrow is gonna be a big day…
to be continued…
