Cross Country

As I woke up at half past 6 in the morning I looked for my bag and found a cross country notice, that said we had cross country today.I yelled quietly and ran back up the stairs and got ready for school. When my mum got up I said "can you write me a note"? She said " What for?" I said" we have cross country and I don't feel like running". My mum said "no" so I got some clothes to run in and went to school.

Meeting my friends at school and telling them what was happening I thought it was a dream. Suddenly it wasn't a dream it was real. I turned around to see people walking in with house colours. So my friends got changed and I waited at the front gate to find my other friends who weren't at school yet. Then I left because I waited for about half an hour.

A couple of mintes went by and suddenly I heard my name been called. It was the girl that I was waiting for. We started to walk around in the street until we had to go inside to get ready to go walk to the courts. I stepped foot inside our class room to find Mrs Lagitupu standing there asking us if we were changed in our running clothes. I said "no" so she said" go and get changed".

As we lined up to get ready to run I was so nervous. On your marks, set, go! We all started running faster and faster we went. I slowed down around the corner to find my way in front of Maranda. Seeing Mr Umu standing there guiding us through our run I thought to myself I don't want to do this, this is boring and tiring.

Standing there was Mrs Lagitupu yelling at us to keep jogging and power walking. I stopped and started talking to her saying "Mrs can I be a marshall like you? But I'd probably guide people the wrong way". She laughed and said "keep running". Ohh man! So I kept running and found myself running straight to Mr Jacobson. I ran past some of the girls to see Ala coming first.Then I kept running till I reached a point that I couldn't run any more.

Finally I found my way back through the gates to find other competitors that I challenged screaming at me to run. But I walked .Spectators and other student were watching me as I walked through the park. I looked up and started to jog.
I started to jog because of the people that were behind me, and also the spectators that were cheering me on. I didn't want to disappoint them by walking the whole way around the track. At the end of the day it all was a success, but I went home tired and my sisters didn't make it any worse.

My Holiday Highlight.

In the holidays my family and friends went to Rainbows End, to celebrate my cousin’s first birthday. As we arrived at the door of Rainbows End, I freaked out! I could hear the laughter and people crying. I thought to myself “should I say I don’t want to go inside?”. But then again I said I have to.

Going on the fear fall was the most scariest ride I could go on, apart from the Invader. The Invader was, I think, the most scariest ride too because it just spins and twists. Before we went on the rides we had to help set up the food and put stuff on the tables.

The first ride I ever went on was the Fear Fall. I was so surprised when I went to line up. No one was there, except a few people. Then I turned, and said “ why are there no people here with us?” Normally it was full of people. On the Fear Fall it was pretty scary, but I didn’t want to get off. We came down fast. Sitting next to me was these people who had tears coming down their face. The belts came off and I ran out. Standing there staring at me was my family. They all laughed. I wondered for a moment what was wrong. I was the only kid out of my cousin’s that went on. Then I laughed.

All the rest of my cousins were too scared of the ride. I could tell that at the end they all went on and I waited on the ground waiting for them to come out. Then the rest of my family and Il laughed at them because they were crying.

On all the other rides I didn’t fear to come on. The Invader was my worst nightmare ever. As we all got on the ride, we were scared because it looked like we were going to hit the ground. Moments later our fear disappeared somewhere and we just had fun. The next ride I went on was the roller coaster. It was pretty boring just going upside down.
