Lesson 076 He's suddenly lost his confidence
He's suddenly lost his confidence
Ms. Saito: Hi, RoboCorpus.
RoboCorpus: Hi, Ms. Saito. Where is Boon?
Ms. Saito: He’s not coming today. He says he feels sick.
RoboCorpus: I’m sorry to hear that.
Ms. Saito: There’s something wrong with him. It’s not just a cold or a fever.
RoboCorpus: What do you mean?
Ms. Saito: He’s suddenly lost his confidence. He is so worried about losing the contest and losing face.
RoboCorpus: Can I talk to him? I want to encourage him.
Ms. Saito: Sure. But you must come to school to see him tomorrow.
Sylphie: Oh, no. Maybe Boon is being influenced by the Negatives.
Jukichi: Yes, that’s probably why he started thinking negatively!
Lex: We must rescue Boon!
