Candy, most likely, and maybe Butch and Graas! Candy wants to do her best in school for average reasons; Butch for the same reason and also because he is trying to make up for the fact that his family is rather poor and are stretching their expenses to send him to a good school; and Graas because he is new to the country, hardly knows the language, and desperately wants to succeed.
Who, when frightened or in danger, would stand perfectly frozen for several long seconds before finally reacting?
Candy. She has a hard time thinking fast in dangerous circumstances.
I light the arrow, pull the bow,
Shoot that fire right through my soul.
