Prospective Student

With his head held up high, John went on a treacherous climb  up the towering mountains. Muscles were aching, fingers were sweating and legs was shaking, but that didn't stop John from trying to reach the Dojo.  Struggling to hang on tight to the lofty peaks, John felt terrified. He started to doubt taking the journey to his dream, getting taught by the amazing master of Kung Fu. “Should I keep on going,” he thought to himself.

John pulled himself up and carried on with a lot of courage. After dangling for hours John finally made it to the huge Dojo. “Pheew,” he said as he wiped the sweat off his forehead. He made his way to the massive door and knocked twice while his palms were sweating as he really exited to join the crew.

Suddenly the master of the Dojo came out and looked at John with his googly eyes like an owl. John didn't know what to do so he bowed down uselessly. The master pointed to the left and slammed the door with a thump. John’s heart was crushed but he didn't want to leave. He persevered and put everything to the strenuous climb just to reach the Dojo, he wasn't going to leave so easily so he meditated day and night to prove that he’s worthy. During his meditation he opened his eyes, just to see the master standing at the doorstep with his hand out pointing to the left again. John felt very sad so he walked away with his head down, even though John was feeling rejected he was very angry that the master didn't even care about him. He clenched his fist, scrunched up his eyes and walked back to the big door. 

With a lot of anger he fiercely kicked down the door. The master was standing right in front of him but John was really angry. John showed his kung fu skills and waited for the master to strike a punch but the master just stood there and looked at him like John was stupid. The master pointed to the left again but this time John looked to the left only to see that there was a sign saying use the left side entrance. John stood there and smiled at the master like an idiot.
