Inspiration (Part 5)
The next day I proudly passed up my four-page (front and back) response. My prelude dwarfed the others in my row. My classmates turned their bewildered heads at me as they felt my paper in their hands.

I froze. What if she reads mine? What will my classmates think? Nah, she won't read it. What do I care if she reads it anyway ? But secretly I desperately wanted her to read it and like it, but I never admitted that to myself.
Friday finally arrived. I was standing outside Mrs. Christianson's door waiting to get in. That was another first.
