Fear of the unknown

Talon was walking to school one day. He wondered what would happen today.

He put his bag down and went inside the classroom.

The teacher today was Mrs Robin. She was their music teacher usually. But today she was there to watch them while the main teacher had an appointment they couldn’t change.

“Good morning class,” Sang Mrs Robin.

“Good morning!” the children replied in sing-song voices.

Mrs Robin always brightened their days.

“Today we will be learning something new!” Mrs Robin smiled.

“I noticed that we have been having trouble trying new things,” she said.

“So I will be talking about fear, courage and bravery.”

“As some of you may know. My husband Isaac works at the local space station.”

“He confronts his fears every day!” She declared.

“For you see. Isaac is unfortunately afraid of heights!” She laughed.

The class looked around and wondered where she was going with this.

Talon smiled. He always enjoyed hearing Mrs Robin’s stories. He also wanted to meet Mr Robin.

“Well class, I think we should each share a moment when we faced our fears or were brave and courageous!” Mrs Robin suggested.

Talon sighed as the class formed a circle.

He was nervous about sharing with the class!
