I Missed the Bus! by Kezia Owens

Beep! Beep! Beep! There goes my alarm.

Another Monday morning. Double maths and then double history.

“GET UP OR YOU WILL BE LATE!” Yelled Mum.

I looked at my alarm. 7:51am.

It is nine minutes to eight and I leave for my bus at eight!

Where is my hairbrush? “Mum have you seen my hairbrush?” I tie my hair up in a messy ponytail.

I rush downstairs and skip exactly four steps. Anyway, let’s stop focussing on the details.

I grab a mouthful of dry cornflakes and my school bag.

“Bye Mum! I am staying for after school hockey today, is that ok?” I say.

“Yes that is fine, I will pick you up at quarter to five then! Now hurry or you will miss the bus!” She replied.

I walk down the road to the bus stop.  Exactly two minutes away from my house. Where are all my friends? I look at my watch.

8:02am! Noooooooooo! I missed the bus by two minutes!

Two minutes later… “Mum, I need a lift!”

(This is not real, it is just a story, and good thing it is nearly the summer HOLIDAYS!)
