From Kristin to Juan

Kristin bit her lip anxiously, before scribbling a note on spare lined paper.

Dear Juan,

I know we don’t know each other well, but I need to ask you something. This is a little embarrassing to admit, but I’m finding Spanish a bit difficult. Would it be possible for you to tutor me?


PS – Could we keep this just between us too?

Her fingers shook a little, as she placed the paper in an envelope (which she also kept spares of) and wrote on the front:

Adressed to Juan (Ben could you please pass this to him?)

Kristin then waited until the teacher’s head was facing the blackboard before passing the note to the desk behind her. She couldn’t think of anything more humiliating that being caught exchanging notes by a teacher – especially if he read her note.
