Finally!!!!!!!!!!! after months of waiting the day had come. The day of the O'Levels CIE results.
When I woke up monday morning my head was aching like HELL. I was so worried about my result, because in my mind I knew that I hadn't given my best in Pakistan studies and Islamiyat examinations. Maybe it was the truth or maybe it was only a stupid thought. Later it became crystal clear that it was only a stupid thought.
I went to school trying to forget that today was the day when we will be handed our CIE results.Though the results were only for two papers but they meant a lot. It was also the first time me and a lot of my friends were giving any kind of CIE papers.
The results were being given inside the school library. The students were being called in one by one. After a few minutes, my turn came. I was fidgeting nervously as I had no idea what awaited me beyond the library's door. My heart was about to jump out of my chest at any moment. It started pounding then it relaxed and this happened on and off until I was called in. I had a little chat with the middlers's section coordinator then she asked me about my expectations. I had already braced myself for this question and according to the consensus of me and my friends, I had to say an A and a B. And that is what I really expected. But what I got was really beyond my wildest dreams.
"Congratulaions, Farooq" she said while giving me that singe sheet of paper. I GOT TWO A's. Suddenly I was totally relieved. And I had never felt better in my life.
Through out my life up till now I had been a little below average students. Getting the worst possible results all the time. I never got what I expected to get.
I came out of the room and I was trembling all over. I couldn't feel my legs, my voice was unsteady and I felt weightless.
This was one of the best days of my life which I will never ever forget :).
