She glances at the clock again. TWO MINUTES. It feels like a century but only two minutes have passed.
She looks back at her desk.
It’s the last test.
She just needs to complete this one…last…test.
She looks again at the clock on the wall. It’s almost time. Only five minutes left.
She begins to get uneasy in her seat.
She shifts her weight from one side to the other.
Her pencil hits the wooden top repeatedly.
She hurriedly scribbles in one final answer.
Her heart rate is picking up.
She can feel the excitement swelling inside her.
As she looks at the other classmates, they too are unsettled. A murmur roams through the classroom as papers get shifted and feet are shuffled underneath the desks.
Eyes glance warily at each other as if the fear of it never happening actually comes true.
Is it possible that the time is slowing down?
Will it ever come to an end??
And then….in a moment of utter silence; every breath is held and every appendage is stilled….
The bell rings!!
Papers fly, screams erupt and summer vacation has finally arrived.
