Mike and Tim wanted to play on a soccer team. They had not played on a team before. The boys had played soccer together. They joined a team.
“Wow, this is going to be fun for us!” exclaimed Tim.
“I am a bit scared
.” replied Mike.
“Hey, you play well.” Tim said.
“Yeah, but the other guys might
be better than me.” Mike was worried
He wanted to be on a team, but he didn’t want to make mistakes. He was afraid the other team members would make fun of him.
Tim told him, “Don’t worry
, just make like they are all me. It’ll be fine. You wait and see. Let’s go to practice
The boys got to the field. They met the other players. The boys were all nice to them. No one was any better than Mike and Tim. Practice was fun.
“Told ya’ so!” Tim yelled as they ran home.
“You were right
! I’m not scared
anymore!” Mike replied.
