Bold Negotiations

She stood still in the silent night watching the waves ebb away. They would be back shortly, with full strength. She walked along the sea shore, randomly picking up pebbles, debating with herself. She had tossed and turned the questions over all day, wondering if she could gather courage

The day dawned. She walked up to the desk and boldly negotiated with her teacher for the 2 marks that would enable her to apply to the college of her dreams.
