It's totally within your control to go ahead and insult the bouncer, but your instincts tell you that such action could result in harm. Therefore you decide not to dare it.Whereas,"I'm afraid I _______ get the contract after all."...implies that the action is out of your control. You are hoping for a contract, but it may not be granted to you because the action is controlled by others. Here's a third example:I think with such a conscientious teacher, your ESL students need not worry!Cheers,Jeanie :)
