She was sitting straight
he was sitting next to her and close.
She took out her phone
hoping no one would know
they looked around to see if they were alone.
The teacher stood up
he looked around and started to walk
they were scared and in fear
they froze and did not talk.
She stood up straight
the boy placed on his desk a book
he kept his paper hidden
hoping the teacher wouldn't look.
His face turned pale
if only only he studied
he sat very close to her
feeling scared and worried.
He took out a pen
he saw a problem he could not solve
he tried to stay calm
but he felt his hopes dissolve.
And now the test is over and they can tell
he knew if he sat apart
he would fail.
He felt in fear and in ease
and would hope no one knows and sees
