We walked down the hall, both nervous and in anticipation; after hours of studying we just wanted to be done with it as soon as posible. I opened the door to the inner corridor and saw the profesor standing in front of his office.

“You're here for the exam, right?“ he asked.

“Indeed we are.“ I answered.

“Why, come inside and lets get this over with.“

Half an hour or so later we came out of his office with our heads raised high, proud of ourselves and happy because it went very well.

  4. Nicely done.

    Also good to see you doing a post that isn't 100 words. Is this the start of a run of things a little longer?
