    Vocabulary Word Story-Reading Passage:
    Did you know that even in a CONFIDENTIAL memo a TRAITOR could RENDER a secret to someone else? Tonight, at local college, he will DISCLOSE the FORECLOSURE of an EXCLUSIVE house that was part of an ENDOWMENT the school had received. Many alumni will call the classmate that revealed the secret an INFIDEL. His premature announcement is not a PARDONABLE error. It could easily PRECLUDE the BONA FIDE interest from a legitimate buyer. The INFIDEL most likely is a DEFIANT realtor who used very bad judgment!

    Vocabulary Word Story-Reading Passage:
    Juanita's CONFIDANT, a PERFIDIOUS brother with an ANECDOTE or two he likes to share, has shown no FIDUCIARY responsibility. He stole funds from her DOWRY and attempted to put her in a CLOISTER using a signed AFFIDAVIT. Her SECLUSION would have been absolute, and she would have had to endure life as a RECLUSE. No fact could OCCLUDE his miserable treachery. No one should CONDONE such conduct. Fearing possible EXTRADITION and PERDITION of his soul due to his illegal activities, Carlos searched for someone else he could dupe with a pretended DIFFIDENCE in behavior.
    (note: PERDITION and DIFFIDENCE are additional words from the same roots, but they are not part of the 12 tested words!)
