Story Contest 2018 #1 - Outstanding Stories (Sub-junior) »


“Math” is one of the outstanding stories of the first biannual International Short Story Contest 2018 written by Kefas Makavela Lawalata, Sekolah Citra Berkat, Indonesia.


On Tuesday, October 17th 2017, I and my friends had a math exam, but it was too hard. So I decided to review the math that I’ve been studying. I started learning more about addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Today is the day I will have an exam. Before coming, I will definitely pray to GOD. Why? Because I want to get hundred (100) point. While I’m working with my exam, I saw one of my friends cheating, and I told it to my teacher Ms. Lina. Hearing this news, Ms. Lina became upset and my friend got scolding.

On the same day, the exam sheet has been shared, and I got hundred point and I’m so happy, and my parents - too.

Next day we had a national math contest at school. I wanted to join that contest so badly. So I needed to learn more about the math every night at home.

Today is the day, before the contest I pray to GOD. I know it’s so hard, but I don’t want to give up, I CAN DO IT!!!

On Wednesday, November 17th 2017, the test sheet was distributed and I got 100 again. My family was so excited. And my friends stopped calling “ugly”. My friends call me “THE MATHMAN LEVEL 1000”. So that’s why I like math. So do not be surprised if I like to get math homework.

No matter I was working math for term 1 and terms 2. I remained like math homework and school assignment. So math will be my favorite subject from playground till the end of my life. Now it’s January 10th 2018. I got new materials That started from integers into symmetry. And I got a sheet written “register your name for a high math championship contest”. I registered myself. The contest will be start in February 1st 2018.

In January 31st 2018, I got sick. I was so disappointed because I eat too much ice cream. Tomorrow, I keep following the contest. I see an outlier. I can work a test because it’s too easy. I treated in hospital in February 2nd 2018. I keep praying till can go home with healthy state.

February 19th 2018, the news announced and I became number 1 champion.. My big family is so excited. Now, my dream is not be an animator but I want to be a mathematic man. I want to tell this story to all my friends. But, before that, I want to ask this moment. I have a friend, his name is Qwertyuiop Frinoby Daughterdan (Qwerty). He asked me “If you want to be a mathematic man, you should remember what I said (Reach your goal correctly and honestly)”. I want to tell you all guys, I’m not cheat. But I want to study. If I cheat anybody, I will not get A+. Now, for the student who cannot study in school, I can teach them all who want to study hard.
