“Jade, I can’t do this,” she had said desperately, “Can you help me?”
For days Jade thought about it. Doing Olivia’s test would be cheating and morally wrong. Jade would feel guilty, and so would Olivia. But if not, Olivia’s dreams of attending art school and becoming a singer would be crushed. Jade remembered all the things the two had planned to do. She recalled the day that the two besties had decided to form a girl band after taking vocal lessons at art school. Jade and Olivia had picked out their band name, and had already custom-designed their outfits together, promising each other that they would buy it once they had the money saved up. Their whole life was planned out! Jade couldn’t risk losing everything over a stupid SAT test.
Jade and Olivia looked so similar that people thought they were twins; sometimes even their mothers confused their daughters. The test proctors would not know the difference.
Still, if Jade did this, their relationship would be based on a lie. However ‘stupid’ the test was, Jade knew that she would feel guilty about cheating.
The night before the test, Jade tossed and turned, wondering what her decision would be. By the morning, Jade had made up her mind and decided to call Olivia.
What did Jade say? That, dear reader, is entirely up to your imagination!
