The boys tested for 8th Kyu on the 30th of November, Henry was so nervous he was about to cry. Nicholas treated it like any other day, no worries or thoughts about it.
Large class testing together, the senseis were slightly overwhelmed, people kept showing up. They didn't turn them away like I would have, there is a reason why they want the performance sheets turned in 3 days before testing. .
