It was the interval.
Tarun was in the canteen.
He was with his friend Nikhil.
All of a sudden the school bell rang.
There was a commotion to get out of the canteen.
Nikhil and Tarun made their way out with difficulty.
“Hurry up, lets run,” Nikhil urged after coming out of the canteen.
Tarun started running with Nikhil.
They saw a junior student running ahead of them.
In the rush he was pushed by the crowd.
Since he was very small the little one lost balance.
He fell on the ground.
Tarun jumped and lifted the child.
The little child started crying.
He wasn’t badly hurt.
However his knee was bruised.
Tarun and Nikhil lifted the little one and took him to the first aid room.
The boy looked frightened.
He told Nikhil that he had a brother in year 7 B.
“I will go and inform him,” Nikhil said running out of the first aid room.
Tarun waited with the student while first aid was administered.
The boy continued to cry calling out for his brother.
Nikhil returned soon with his brother.
The big brother went and put his arm around the younger one.
The boy stopped crying.
“Thank you so much for taking care of my brother,” the big brother thanked Tarun and Nikhil.
The little one was already feeling better.
“I will take him to the class,” the elder brother told Tarun and Nikhil.
The little boy started walking towards the junior section with his brother.
Tarun and Nikhil watched the two brothers walking together.
“He looks fine. I think he should be ok,” Nikhil told Tarun.

What did Tarun do when Nikhil left him and the junior boy in the first aid room?
Why did the brother of the junior student thank Tarun and Nikhil?
