Playing In The Class

One day i was still in primary school,we were playing it the class during break time but as were playing the black board fold on my hand and i got a fracture.But because i knew that it was my problem because our teacher always advising us not to playing the class.So i did report anybody and on top of that i didn't speak anything on that day.When i went back home at lunch time i did show the hand to my mother and didn't speak anything. But which i was about to go back home,one of the pupils pushed me on the hand which was injured,but as i cried so loudly one of the teachers called me and asked me what had happened to my hand, i explained him but i didn't told him the truth because i knew that when i tell him the truth,i will first Cain me but he started treating my hand up to when i came back to its original position,and i was so happy with that teacher because he did all that without money but just helped from the deep pain all that i had so i thank my teacher from that spirit that he had.
