Tone Paragraph:

Daniel was nervously sitting in Trigonometry class, waiting for Mr. Kaufman to hand out the graded test that determined whether he would be taking summer school. All Daniel could think about was the countless of hour he would be wasting during the summer if he had to take summer school, stuck in a room for 5 hours everyday learning material he had already learned his junior. The whole year flashed before his eyes, and he now regretted choosing sports and parties over his Trig class. Those sports and parties were the very reason why he fell behind in class. Mr. Kaufman was just getting closer and closer and with each step closer to his desk, Daniel's palms started sweating and his leg was shaking more and more. Finally Mr. Kaufman got to his desk and gave him stern look and said, "Daniel, I want you to know that I'm disappointed." Daniel's heart just dropped, he knew he was going to summer school. Mr. Kaufman added, "I'm disappointed because I won't be teaching you Trig. this summer." Kaufman set his test done and smiled; a big red A was circled on the test. Daniel was so relieved, now his summer was going to be spent playing soccer and hanging out with friends. During the rest of the class Daniel was just smiling and thinking about all the fun he will be having come summer.

This near death experience taught Ashoke an important lesson about growing up and getting used to the adult world.
