100wc Flame, swimming, celebrated, white, tomorrow
The swimming contest is finally here, and i’m so excited. We line up at the diving boards, ready to start. ‘3, 2, 1!’ And i dive into the water. Through my fogged goggles, I can see Ryan Boulder kicking off the wall – which is classified as ‘cheating’. I come out of the water, and see Ryan in first place. I’m furious with flame as I see Ryan’s family cheering and celebrating. I take off my goggles as I accept i’m in second place. I walk home, white in disappointment, and I don’t even take my trophy. Tomorrow, i’m going to convince my mum that i’m sick, so that I don’t have to show my shame at school.
