Rehan and Arsalan

     Rehan and Arsalan were best friends and they lived in a very beautiful green village. They always went to school together and both of them were always studying together. Rehan was trying very hard in his studies but Arsalan didn’t pay attention to his studies. Arsalan was always busy playing games. After many months, final exams were close. Rehan was more focused on his studies than usual because he wanted to pass the third grade with good grades. Rehan told his good friend Arsalan to focus on his studies and not play games for a while, but Arsalan did not listen to his advice. Rehan passed his third grade tests with the highest scores.  But Arsalan was more focused on his games than studies so, because of that, he didn’t pass the third grade.  

     The next year, Rehan was in fourth grade but Arslan was still in third grade. They couldn’t play and study together anymore because they were in different grades. That made Arsalan very sad because Rehan was his best friend but now he could not spend any more time with him. So Arsalan became committed to his studies because he wanted to pass the third grade so he could join the fourth grade with Rehan.  Written by Anisgul
