Duncan was among the best basketball players at school. Everyone knew he was the best of the best. With his towering figure, his presence was always felt wherever he went.

On the basketball court he would shine whenever he made a basket. The three pointers were a walk over, he dunked just like Micheal Jordan and everyone loved him for that. 

The ladies called him ‘Mr. Complete’, which meant that he had been perfectly created. When he walked on campus he was respected because he kept his cool. His calmness on top of his game, made him famous.

After basketball games against other schools, he was the topic of the year in all schools that competed. Every student wanted to be like Duncan. He was their role model.

However, he had a dark side that eventually changed what people thought of him. Unbelievably, he used to sneak out of school in the night.

On one particular night, while attempting to jump over the fence, he was stopped by the night watchman. Since he was taller and stronger than the watchman, he over powered him and victoriously made his way to the dormitory.

Early morning, Duncan was shocked to see the night watch man together with the headmaster, enter his dormitory. He effortlessly pointed out Duncan. His height sold him out, despite all his denials.

He was taken before the disciplinary committee where he later confessed to using drugs and alcohol. This tainted his image so bad that his popularity quickly phased out. 

However, things did not turn out so bad for Duncan since he made a conscious choice to boldly repent before the whole school. He was forgiven and thereafter, his fame spread.  

This was just because Duncan accepted his mistakes before taking a bold step towards becoming a complete role model.
