          Shari was excited about today's game.  It was her first game since she hurt her ankle last summer.  Her teammates were excited about her return, too.
          However, when the referee blew his silver whistle something inside of Shari changed.  She froze on the field. All she could think of was the pain of her broken ankle.  The ball raced by her, but she didn't follow.  Someone on the other team got to the ball and headed for the goal.  Without Shari's help, the goalie was alone.  The other team scored the goal.
          Shari sulked back to the bench.  She was angry with herself for being afraid.  She decided to quit and go home.  Just then, her coach called her name.  He wanted her back in the game.  She was sure that he had made a mistake.  Then he called her name again.
          As she slowly walked back on the field, the coach called her once more.  He told her to remember how much she loves soccer.  Shari smiled at the memories she had of other games.  This time when the whistle blew, Shari wasn't afraid.
