My story is about my friend and I who one day came up with an idea to entertain ourselves. To be frank, it wasn't the safest idea. Nor the smartest. But we were at an age where life was at our peril. We hardly ever had any homework and our parents thought we were too innocent to punish us if we came home from school late. So we considered this to be the perfect time for some refreshing fun. I learned a lot from a participation which I initially thought was simply about having a good time. In one sense I did have a good time but it was over roared by a pretty hefty consequence. My overriding regret is substantial and can never be amended. I was relieved slightly with lessons which a real life undertaking like this only could of taught me.…show more content…
We looked at each other. Our faces told their own story. We had both been given huge lift by this. I'd never experienced such an instantaneous feeling of pure energy in my life.The endorphin's were sky high. I'm sure he felt the same way cause if he didn't there was something wrong with him. That's how good it was. We had to do another one by the end of the day. We did and it was equally spectacular. Instead this time of desperately 'boltin it' we were more confident and composed is was more like a fast jog with time left over to swagger out the driveway to the sound of a hot-tempered old woman shouting''get out or I'Il phone the police". My friend and I were both enjoying this as we had never experienced this action packed side of life before. It was like we were emulating the great actors from all the best action movies. Taking on the same inconcievable tasks and against all the odds, some how finding a escape unscathed or undetected. But aside of all the glossy acts of heroism or bravery that these stories provide, a simpler and more down to earth story stood out and illuminated my senses to the wrong I was undertaking. ''The bad,nasty people who steal, hurt, vandalise or TRESSPASS always get in big trouble in the end.'' I learned that when I was five and understood it then. I had ignored the rule and I feared the worst The next week or so
A Memorable Day In My Life
I did not wake up and find myself famous on the morning of the 14th of last month. No one wished me even when I left my bed. In those boarding homes, which accommodation two hundred students, not one thought much of me as I passed the corridor. Yet it was going to be the most memorable day in my life.
It all came in this way. I was at that time an indifferent cricketer not the well know spin bowler, nor the talented batsman that I am thought to be now. Yet as I was passing along the corridor in front of Charles’s room-Charles was the college skipper. I was curtly informed that I was to be the eleventh man in the college team that day. My heart simply leapt. For, I was ambitious and of late was showing better form than I had ever done.
We were playing that day against the strongest cricket team in the town, Sutton club. There was not the ghost of a chance of our putting up a good show. They batted first and made 250 runs for the less of 6 wickets. It was hurricane batting from the beginning to the end and fours and sixes came huge numbers. Then we began our innings. Our stalwarts returned to the pavilion in a short time. They could not withstand the steady bowling of Davind and Brown and defeat for us was only a matter of time.
When we were nine wickets down, we had made only 63 runs. Then I went into bat amidst jeers and cheers of many of my college teachers. Ordinarily, I would have been very nervous, but so many strange things had happened that day I was feeling quite confident. Anything might happen! And something did happen.
James, who was the man, was a steady bat and played sensibly. He soon realized that I was set for a big score and helped me by letting me face the ball frequently. I hit ten sixes and 23 fours. Runs were coming at a fast pace. At tea time I had scored 145 run. Shortly before the end of the day’s play we reached the total 251 and the match was over.
I was simply delirious; I had turned certain defeat into victory. I was loudly cheered, garlanded and taken to the Boarding House in a Procession. I was very proud and a little giddy.
But the crowning glory of the day was the wire which reached me at 8 p.m. I had won a lottery of one lack rupee. I did not swoon or babble. Oh! I was so happy. I had never been as happy as on that day. New, the shades of the prison house, in the words of the famous poet words worth, are fast falling upon me. Things are taking a more gloomy turn. But, now I can always look back upon that day of my life and console myself that I too had my hour.
