Hide and seek

“66! 67! 68!
Will the teacher find me?
Run away from everyone!
I start to sweat like water dripping down.
I should go into that bush!
“85! 86! 87!”
Tuck your feet in.
The leaves gliding down.
I strike Into a tree, WHACK!
Hide away and tuck your arms in.
“98! 99! 100!”
Hush hush, she's going to find me I better hurry and find a place to hide!
My heart beats so fast it starts hitting the sides of my stomach.
Don't breathe.
I hear the leaves crunching beneath me.
Don't move.
Remain silent, remain still.
I better find a better hiding place!
People screaming like baboons.
I'm going to lose.
I hear Mrs. Bentall’s footsteps going past.
My face goes bright red.
“Found you!”
So I trudge back.
I wish I could have stayed in for longer.
I see everyone doing the map.
I get writing.
So I have to write while everyone else is playing hide and seek!

  2. Gab this really reminded me of when I hid at st James park. You see I was also in a bush XDXD. Pretty bad place for anyone to hide. But I really think it helped just reading some one else's perspective please post something new soon. You writing is always improving.
