By Yvonne Mizrahi Shelly is a very quiet girl. She is very good at sports. One day, loud and popular girl Lauren was in a tennis tournament and needed a partner. Lauren decided to ask Shelly because she is good at sports. Shelly agreed and practiced with Lauren every day. She also taught her how to do a volley, and helped her with her backhand. Finally, the day of the tournament was here and Shelly and Lauren won the whole tournament. The next day at school, Lauren decided to make a club. When Shelly asked to be in it, Lauren denied. Shelly felt terrible. The problem is that Shelly had just helped Lauren with her tennis and helped her win the tournament. Lauren had not acted very generously back to Shelly. The least she could have done was let her in the club. A bad friend uses others. A good friend cares for others.
