Emma, can I confess something to you?
Sure, Ron. Your secrets are always safe with me.
So I have a classmate that I caught cheating on our exam earlier.
Oh, my. What did you do?
Nothing. I just shrugged it off and kept quiet because he warned me. What do you think I should do?
If I were you, I would tell it to my teacher first thing in the morning tomorrow.
Maybe that’s really the right thing to do.
Yes. What your classmate did is absolutely wrong and must not be tolerated.
How about his threat?
