Long ago in a small town in Venezuela, an archery school decided to hold an archery competition. The winner will be given a flag with the number 1 written on it. The most favorite to win the tournament was a boy named Akio. He was a sort of a legend. Another boy named Calvin participated in the tournament - however, he was not as good as Akio. Akio used to always tease Calvin. “I bet you can’t win,” said Akio to Calvin, but Calvin ignored him.


On the 13th of April, the tournament started. The teacher, Mr. Clack took all the archery items and put them on the archery field.


The tournament started and everybody get ready with their bows and arrows.


Are you ready?” said Mr. Clack.

“Yes, we are.”

Are you steady?” 

“Yes, we are.”

“Gooooooooo!!!”

Everybody got ready with their bows and arrows.

Akio thought that - since I am a legend, I can easily win - even with my eyes closed. So he closed his eyes and shot the arrow. However, the arrow missed its mark.


Then Calvin thought “I’ll try my best”. So with full concentration -he shot the arrow. And the arrow hits the bull’s eye.


When the result was declared - Calvin came first and Akio came last.


Then Calvin went to Akio and said “is that all you can do and dare to tease me?”. Akio felt very ashamed. Then Akio heard the crowd cheering “ Hip Hip Hurray” for the winner- Calvin.


Akio was worried that his stepmother will give him a good beating - if he told her the results. So he asked Calvin and asked if they could trade flags. “No way - would a winner trade for a loser’s flag,” said Calvin.

 

Akio felt very embarrassed and promised never to be arrogant anymore.
