The sad skate
It was another bright and early day, as I walked up to the ice rink.
I laced my skates, and got on the ice.
As I skated around, I dreamed about my upcoming show, how I would skate out on the ice with beauty and grace. The music would start, my friends would cheer, I would do my program. At the end the audience would scream and yell, I would that my bows and smile. I would exit the ice, and win gold, with flowers around my neck and skates.......
I quickly work up from my dream as I heard my coach yell at the top of her lungs "Tin, come on. Lesson time"
I hurried over to her and started my lesson.
"Loop Loop." coach said to me.
" 'kay." I said as I started to skate quickly around the circle to go into my jump. I put my right leg up too about my waist, placed it back down on the ground, did a three turn, then started to take off. As I turned to jump in the air, the ankle rolled, and down I went. I couldn't understand what happened till my friends and coach started helping me off the ice.
About an hour later I came home from the doctors, but now I have a cast on and was having a hard time walking. I'm not very emotional so I didn't cry, but I was so sad, because this could mean that I can't compete.
the weeks went by......
Finally the cast came off and I could get back on the ice.
It toke me about a week till I could get my jumps, and the competition then came. The competition was pretty boring, but I did win 2 golds and a silver. I am very happy, because I got to talk to the boy I liked a lot...... but that is another story.
Throw the best thing was that I was on the ice. Which I realized was the best thing I could have.
hope you enjoy it, this is a true story BTW.
