On The Right Track
The atmosphere was electric as we stood on the starting line. I was full of determination to win the long distance race. As I looked down the line at all the faces all I could see was nasty Patricia McGrath sneering at me.
She always won the sprints but she knew I was her competition in the long distance. I looked away quickly I knew I had to stay focused. The whistle went I took the lead. After 400 meters I was a good distance ahead. The arrow clearly pointed to the left so I went with it. I went to the left and then the track started getting boggy underneath by feet. I ran a bit more, I looked behind to see who was catching up with me but to my delight there was no one insight. I thought to myself smugly I have this race won!!! So I ran on a bit more and looked behind once more still no one insight.
I thought well this is strange they’re not as fast as me but they’re not that slow. It then clicked with me that arrow did look a bit tampered with, I screamed PATRICIA!!! I quickly turned on my heels and went back the way I came .When I finally got back on track the race was finished with me being last. Patricia the winner again, someday I’ll beat PATRICIA!!!
