Episode 38: A chat with the professor

Prof. Lewis: Come in Helen, sit down. Now how are you?
Helen: Fine really. Honestly, I'm fine.

Prof. Lewis: Are you? That's not what your marks are saying to me. They tell a very different story. You failed this mid-term test quite badly. Even John, who seems to do no work at all in class, managed to do so much better than you.

Helen: Humph!

Prof. Lewis: Is there something you want to talk about?

Helen: No, it's nothing.

Prof. Lewis: You and John just don't seem as close as you used to be. Is there something wrong?

Helen: No, it's just that....Oh I don't know.

Prof. Lewis: Helen, I'm here to help. Now why don't you just tell me what's on your mind.
