After passing my high school exam, I promoted to the next class that was 11-C. My roll number was 49 in alphabetical order. Most of us thought that after high school, now we have time to relax. One day after some peaceful months, our class teacher announced the date of our half yearly exam. Like other Hindi Medium schools, our school also conducted a half-yearly and yearly exam and the half-yearly exam was essential as its marks added to our final exam. Though my group and I did not bother about that, we already joined our class teacher coaching class for getting good marks in the final exam. However, one person in my class was very bothered about it. This guy lived in the same area where I lived. We played a lot of cricket together but hardly talk to each other for long and he was the best player in my area. Eventually, we were in the same class but never chatted with each other.
So, One-day our exam started with Hindi paper and we both got the same exam hall, he was seated beside me. During the exam, I figured out that he actually wanted to help me in objective type questions and quickly I took his help as he was brighter in our class. Finally, the exam finished and we headed to our home. In same day evening, he came to me at my house and we chatted for a while and then he told me the reason why today he helped me, he offered me one deal that he would help me for the whole exam but I need to help him for English paper. He heard from someone that I was good in English as I got good marks in High school, and he wanted me to help him to get good marks in English papers. I took a long breath and accepted the deal, which was appropriate at that moment, I knew that our English papers were in the end.
As promised, he helped me during all the exams and at the end, English paper came. Examiner spread the question paper to us and I checked that paper was damn tough, I hardly knew the answers and someone else was also waiting for my call. Frankly speaking, I felt ashamed at that moment. He continuously asked me questions and I just gave my solemn look to him. Eventually, he got to knew that whatever he heard about me was bullshit and started the paper by himself. In the other hand, whatever I knew, I answered it and had been waiting for the time to end. I accepted that I would fail in this exam. When only one hour left I turned my head to him and we looked at each other for a while and he smiled and showed me his copy and I did not want to leave that golden opportunity and copied everything I could see and the exam went over.
After a few days, We got our results, he got 3rd position in our class and I also passed with average marks.
To sum up, I always think about, why he helped me at that time??Maybe he played well cricket than me but that day my good fortune also played well.
