Read part of the story (Personalized information is indicated by parentheses.)
  • (Child) rolled over in bed, saw dawn was already breaking and knew (he) would not be able to go back to sleep. (He) had tossed and turned most of the night because (he) was excited. This restlessness, however, was also partly due to an aching calf muscle. As (Child) started to get up, (he) once again felt the tightening in (his) leg. (He) rubbed (his) muscle and the tension eased. Now, fully awake, (Child) was very aware of the half-queasy, half-exhilarated feeling that came before every important (sports event). But today was not like every other sports day. Today, (Child) was competing in the last and most important (sports event) of the season. The championship was at stake!
  • While (Child) was eating breakfast, dozens of thoughts filled (his) mind. (He) imagined (his) friends and family at the (sports event) standing and cheering for (him). (He) could almost hear the announcer saying, "(Child) of (Hometown) is simply spectacular today." Then (his) thoughts turned back to reality. (Child) drank (his) orange juice and rubbed (his) leg. (He) knew it was time to leave when (he) saw (Friend) outside the kitchen window. The ride seemed unusually long this morning. When they finally reached their destination, (Child) could see several people were already warming up. (He) rushed to join (his) teammates.
  • The annoucement was made that it was time to begin. The (sports event) got off to a good start. (Child) felt winning was possible. The team was in great condition. It soon became apparent that the teams were evenly matched. First one, then the other, took the lead. With only minutes left, defeat or victory depended entirely on (Child). (His) early morning vision was coming true! Then it happened! Suddenly the dull ache in (his) leg muscle became a terrible cramp. (Child) tried to go on. Again the muscle knotted and the pain was fierce. There was no doubt about it, (he) could no longer compete. The (sports event) ended. The championship was won by the opposing team.
  • As the group gathered around the van, (Child) began to think of everything that had happened before the (sports event). (He) remembered (his) leg aching during the night and how restless (he) had been. The excitement of the championship had pushed the pain out of (his) mind until the fierce cramp had become unbearable. (Child) also thought about (his) dream of being the hero of the day. This morning's dream of stardom seemed foolish. (He) felt discouraged. (Child) and the others began to pile into the van when they saw the coach approaching. One by one they took their seats. (Child) wondered what would be said and how (Coach) would react. (He) wished (he) could disappear.
  • (Coach) stopped to talk to some of the parents. Inside the van, there was total silence. No one spoke. (Child) knew that everyone was upset. (He) was feeling very uneasy. The coach got into the van. (Child) continued staring at the floor. (Coach) broke the long silence. "We all gave our best today. All of you on the team gave 100 percent. The cheers from the rest of you gave us a real boost. (Child), how's your leg?" (Child) looked up. The coach was wonderful!! This (sports event) had meant everything to the team, yet (Coach) was more concerned with how (Child) felt.
  • (Coach) then told a hilarious story, and they all began to laugh and talk at once. With words and antics, they created an instant replay of the entire (sports event). They made fun of themselves until they were weak with laughter. The tension between them ended, and their friendship became stronger. By the time they arrived at their favorite pizza place, (Child) felt good. The aroma of the food coming from the restaurant smelled fantastic. (Child) had already decided on the medium cheese pizza and a large drink.
  • The restaurant was busy. Coaches, athletes and spectators came to eat and talk about the efforts of the teams. As they were waiting to order, a team member joked, (Child), every time we compete, you get better and better. One of these days you might even get a professional offer." They all patted (Child) on the back. No one could lose with friends like these. (Coach) put an arm around (Child) and hugged (him). "Stack them up, team," said the coach. The teammates piled one hand on top of the other. (Child) felt so good that (he) forgot the dull ache in (his) leg...
