提 要
當別人有了困難的時候,適時提供幫助,「及時助人」就像冬天的陽光,溫暖人心。如果人人都肯「雪中送炭」,不急著「錦上添花」,世間就更有人情味。
Sam was a student in class 5. He was a studious as well as a naughty boy. After science class, he was cracking jokes with friends. By the time the math teacher arrived at the class, he moved back to his seat. The class started by asking several questions.
And it happened. Sam wet his pants! He forgot to go to the bathroom before class, and he was extremely ashamed.
He worried about how his classmates would think about him. His wetting pants would be the hot topic of the school! His friends would talk about the incident for years. The girls in the class would never look at him as a friend. The boys and girls would never speak to him. He would become the punch line for everyone in the class….. And Sam’s imagination kept going absurd.
The math teacher noticed some kind of uneasiness about Sam. She was watching him for 10 minutes and realized he was in some kind of trouble. Sam also found the teacher’s concern and tried to act normal.
He felt that his heart would stop pumping very soon. He silently pleaded to god, “Dear God, I really need some help here. Please come as my savior.”
In the meanwhile, Sam’s classmate Kenny asked if he can drink some water after that Kenny took his kettle and started to moving out. As he crosses Sam’s desk, he accidentally spilled the water all over Sam.
It shocked everyone and the teacher rushed to help them. She asked a student to get some towels and a mob.
Students cleaned the perimeter and helped Sam. Someone gave him a gym pant to change. The fear of ridicule acts turned out to be a sympathetic scene.
Sam was so relieved. He looked at Kenny, who stood silently in a corner, scolded by the teacher for being so careless.
After school, Sam approached Kenny and thanked him for his heart-warmed gesture. Kenny smiled and said, “Hey I love to back you up buddy! Because I also experienced the same few months before. I knew the embarrassments.
解說
山姆是小學五年級的學生,他雖好學卻也頗頑皮。科學課下課後,他和朋友笑鬧嬉戲。到數學老師出現時,他回到了自己的座位上。 上課時先問了幾個問題。
接著出事了,山姆尿溼了褲子。他忘了上課前先去洗手間,他覺得羞愧得無地自容。
他擔心同學們會怎麼看待他,他的溼褲子將成為學校的熱門話題!他的朋友們會談論這個事件好多年;班上的女生永遠不會當他是朋友;男男女女都再也不會跟他交談;他將成為班上的笑柄…… 山姆的想像變得愈來愈荒誕。
數學老師發現山姆有些不安,她觀察他十分鐘,覺得他應該有麻煩了; 山姆也發現了老師的眼光,並試圖表現「一切正常」的模樣。
他覺得自己的心臟很快就會停止跳動。
他默默地求神:「親愛的上帝,我這裡真的需要些幫助,請救救我。」
與此同時,山姆的同學肯尼,問老師他可否喝點水,然後拿起水壺走出教室。當他經過山姆的桌邊時,一不小心把水灑在山姆身上。
這下子驚動了所有人,老師趕過去幫忙,要求其中一個學生拿些毛巾和拖把過來。
學生們清理了外圍並幫助了山姆,有人給他一條運動褲更換。原本擔心被嘲笑的場景,變得充滿同情心。
山姆鬆了口氣。他看著默默地站在角落裡的肯尼,他被老師責怪太粗心。
放學後,山姆走近肯尼,感謝他暖心的舉動。肯尼笑著說:「嘿,老兄,我很樂意挺你!因為幾個月前我也經歷過同樣的事,我知道這種尷尬的感覺。」
