Question 37. It was this book that Mr. Nam himself gave me yesterday.
Question 38. Travelling by air always makes me nervous.
I am really confused and don’t know what to do now. Just because the other day my best friend, Thao, confided her secret to me in order to ask me for advice, and she asked me to keep it secret. I gave her my advice, but I wasn’t sure it would work. Afterwards, I happened to tell it to one of my classmates with the hope that she had more perfect solution to help Thao. Then this classmate shared it with the others. As a result, Thao’s secret spread. She knew it and broke up with me. I tried to explain and apologise, but she was so angry and refused my apology.
I am now feeling very regretful, and I don’t want our friendship to come to an end this way. We’ve been good friends for years. I really hope that she will forgive me for my mistake and become friends again.
