Being Late For School

by Sean Chua (P3 2021)
        “Riiinng!” Tony’s alarm rang at 7 a.m. However, Tony thought he was dreaming so he turned it off. He went back to sleep as he was very sleepy and confused. Tony woke up at 9 a.m. and realised that he had no time for breakfast. He had woken up so late that he had to run to school now. He dashed to school as quick as lightning, with his heart pounding with worry.
       Tony usually walked to school as it was very near his house. However, that day, Tony ran so quickly that his shoe came off. He felt like he had set a new personal record at 100 meters per second. He was so exhausted that he wanted to faint. He wished he had woken up earlier, but now it was too late!
       When he finally reached the school gate, he heaved a sigh of relief. But to his horror, the school gate was locked! Tony looked around and saw that there was no security guard at the gate. He would have to jump over the school gate. He thought that it would be a piece of cake, but it was not. The school gate was very, very high. While climbing up the gate, Tony slipped and landed on his back with a loud thud. The pain was so unbearable that he thought he might have broken it.
       A security guard heard Tony’s fall and ran to him as quickly as he could.
       “Are you okay?” he asked, supporting Tony as he sat up. Tony was in too much pain to answer.
       The security guard called the ambulance immediately and the ambulance arrived shortly after. The paramedics put Tony on a stretcher to take him to the hospital. At this point, Tony felt as if a sword had stabbed him in the back. He was relieved help had finally come.
       At the hospital, a few polite doctors and nurses in the emergency room immediately took care of him. The doctor called his parents and they arrived as fast as they could. They were so worried when they heard that he had tried to jump over the gate that they almost passed out. They prayed for Tony to recover quickly. Tony realised that he should have woken up when the alarm rang even if it seemed like a dream. He learnt to be more responsible.
