Ivan's legs felt like rubber. The more he tried to stand straight, the more they wobbled. He felt like he was standing on a mountain of spaghetti. If he moved just an inch, the Sarge would yell at him. But his legs continued to shake and rattle like window panes in a tornado.

It was almost the end of another hard day at the cadet school. All of the other cadets were exhausted and wanted to sleep. After dinner, they were told to stand and had been standing in place for the last hour. Ivan wondered how long he'd have to keep standing.

He counted the days since he had joined the army, and it had only been seven. Ivan had enlisted because he wanted to show his mother he would be the best soldier in the entire Russian army.

He could feel the creaking of the barrack floors. It was like the world was pushing through beneath him, but he stood still. Suddenly, the Sergeant broke through the barrack's doors.

"Don't move!. Don't move!" was the only thing Ivan could think of while the Sarge stopped in front of him.

"WHERE ARE YOU FROM, CADET?!" he yelled at Ivan.

"SIR, Siberia, SIR!" he responded as he was taught to do. He could not afford to make any mistakes or show any weakness.

"WHAT'S IN SIBERIA, PRIVATE?!" the Sarge yelled, even louder this time.

Ivan knew that the purpose was only to frighten him, so he wouldn't be scared. Even so, the only words he could say were few.

"SIR, eh!?!. Snow, SIR!?!" He could feel his "comrades" laughing but also their fear from expressing it.

"IS THERE NOTHING MORE THAN SNOW IN SIBERIA?!"

"SIR, forests, SIR!?!" he said with a frightened voice. . .

"DO YOU LOVE TREES OR SOMETHING?!" the Sarge barked.

Just when Ivan felt a tear in his right eye, another kid saved him. Ivan's comrade just could not stand there without laughing and started to giggle.

The Sarge ran over to the other side of the long barrack and yelled, "YOU THOUGHT THAT WAS FUNNY?!" He stopped and inspected the cadets. "SINCE THIS PRIVATE LOVES COMEDY SO MUCH, I HAVE ANOTHER JOKE FOR ALL OF YOU...50 LAPS AROUND THE BARRACKS! NOW MOVE, MOVE, MOVE!"

"But his legs continued to shake and rattle like window panes in a tornado."
