Beach Day
3 Sentences
I normally love Beach Day. This year it was crazy. As normal we hiked down from Pantoll and climbed down the ladder. Like every year, after the ladder we can run if wanted. I started to run, as a fast 7th grader came so close to me I thought he would run write over me. He said "to your left. I was not ready for that to happen so I tried to move out of the way but I tripped and my ankle fell under me and cracked. I almost started to cry but I held it in. I called for my friend. She stopped and helped me. My ankle felt like it was on fire. After, I had to wait for an adult. My friend waited with me. Finally, an adult came. I tried to walk. I did but it hurt. We reached to a spot at the trail when a 7th grader wanted to give me a piggy-back ride. I politely declined and walked on. After a while they got me on the bus and I had to take it down to the beach. I did swim and have fun but my foot hurt A LOT. I am now writing this in my brace.
Best/Worst Thing
The worst part was when I hurt my ankle.
