write your own ending of the story. (8- 10 lines)
Henry Blodgett looked at his wristwatch and saw that it was two oĂ¢â‚¬â“¢clock in the morning. In despair, he slammed shut the textbook heĂ¢â‚¬â“¢d been studying and let his head sink onto his arms on the table in front of him. He knew heĂ¢â‚¬â“¢d never pass that examination tomorrow; the more he studied geometry the less he understood it. Mathematics in general had always been difficult for him and now he was finding that geometry was impossible for him to learn. And if he flunked it, he was through with college; heĂ¢â‚¬â“¢d flunked three other courses in his first two years and another failure this year would, under college rules, cause automatic expulsion. He wanted that college degree badly, too, since it was indispensable for the career heĂ¢â‚¬â“¢d chosen and worked toward. Only a miracle could save him now. He sat up suddenly as an idea struck him. Why not try magic? The occult had always interested him. He had books on it and heĂ¢â‚¬â“¢d often read the simple instructions on how to conjure up a demon and make it obey his will. Up to now, heĂ¢â‚¬â“¢d always figured that it was a bit risky and so had never
actually tried it. But this was an emergency and might be worth the slight risk. Only through black magic could he suddenly become an expert in a subject that had always been difficult for him. From the shelf he quickly took out his best book on black magic, found the right page and refreshed his memory on the few simple things he had to do.[Ă¢â‚¬Â¦]
