PIF: An Arranging Flowers Class, I have never forgotten

by Judy Nguyen
(VietNam)


Arrange flowers was one of many subjects we had to learn in high school. Of course, schoolboys weren't interested in this. One day, I remember, that was a last day of this subject and we had an exam: arranged a flower vase and explained the meaning of them. Our teacher encouraged us to gave a new, creative ideas.


We girls were very excited, we have bought a lots of flowers: roses, daisies, orchids...It seemed a flower garden in our class.

While we were concentrating on our jobs, some boys went around and pestered us. When there was 10 minutes left, some of us have finished our works, handed it in to our teacher and she gave us feedbacks. Only one boy, we recognized, have not finished.He was the most mischievous boy in our class. He has not bought anything. He collected a branch of bamboo without leaves, which is leftover of our friend's, and ask me for a rose. At last, his work has completed.

How surprised! It was the best one in my class with its title " Beauty and Hero".
