Oh! Public Performance

- Richard Wright


Richard was a shy boy.

And he was new to the class.


The teacher asked him to

write his name and address

on the black board.

He went to the board.

But he could not write

anything.


Richard was feeling very nervous.

His hands and legs were shivering.

He felt that his muscles froze.

He could not remember anything.

His mind was blank.


His classmates laughed at him.

Richard felt more nervous.


The teacher encouraged Richard.

She asked his name. He answered.

She asked him to spell it. He did.

But when she asked him to write he was again nervous.


Richard went back to his seat.

He could hear the boys and girls laughing at him.

He felt very bad and angry.
