Introduction

Scaredy cat Walking into the theme park, a smell of doughnuts, hotdogs and candyfloss drifted past. Two children raced each other aiming for the dodgems and other rides in the same direction. Flashing lights surrounded each ride as it whizzed round. Money rattled from the arcade. Rows of 2p and 10p machines were all lined up. With competitive parents trying to win something whether it was the money itself or a plastic figure which was hanging over the edge. Lucie and I must have been mad to line up for this particular ride, which caught our eye. As it looked the biggest and scariest in the whole park. The path went on forever, swirling up, over and around the rocky enclosure, like a maze. I pushed through the crowd of people desperately trying to edge my way to the front of the queue. Angry faces stared in my direction as if to send out a warning. Suddenly Lucie and I were being followed, not by an angry parent, but by a security guard. Our warning had been received!!! Someone had informed him that there were some queue jumpers. ...read more.

Death. My face, which had now turned slightly green, was concentrating on the harness. Searching for any way that it would break or come undone during "my awful nightmare". Clenching my shaky fists around the cold, wet, handles, I waited for the ride to start... ...All of a sudden, the cart plunged into darkness. I nearly jumped out the seat, not knowing what to expect next. "Ahhhhhhh," Lucie screamed, just like everyone else. Her long brown hair was trailing behind her like she was a movie star. The cart had just manoeuvred a loop-the-loop, round and round we went, twisting all over the place. You could see the huge line of people where we had just come from, staring in amazement and wonder at the ride. By the time the ride had finished, it seemed like the rollercoaster had circled the whole theme park. "At last," I panted, as we both got off the ride and couldn't believe the words that were about to come out of my mouth. "I, I, I liked it." Lucie froze on the spot, her mouth dangling open, just waiting for someone to shut it. ...read more.

Conclusion

When Lucie did finally return, she soon was sprinting away again to get some help. Flash backs kept running through my mind of how exactly I had fallen over. How could I have been so stupid? After what seemed like an hour, a paramedic had rushed to the scene; where a crowd of people had now gathered. Helping me get off the ground she put her hand on my leg, poking and prodding it, like it was an alien from out of space. "Does it hurt when I do this?" she asked me, and wasn't sure if she was saying it a sarcastic voice or sympathetically. And off she took me to the first aid building which luckily was only a 5 minute hop away. After examining what was wrong with my leg, the paramedic strongly recommended that I tried to contact a member of the family immediately!!! I had a broken leg!!! Think of all of the weeks that I would miss P.E for. Growing with pain I dialled the number and waited for the phone to be picked up. I was thinking.... "At least there is one good outcome..... I'm not a Scaredy cat anymore!" ...read more.
