Composition I Prof. Josaphat
“Successful Skipper”
It was fairly easy going at first, and my mind drifted off quickly. I found myself thinking about how my mom had always told me to never let my friends convince me to skip or thinking about being caught by the authorities I had been led to believe were supposed to be catching me. When my friends talked about their adventures, going to the mall, the park, the pool or even a friend’s house. I could tell by the excitement I heard in their voice they were going to try to convince me to skip school with them. “Lets go to my pool, it has an amazing waterfall’ Maria said, one of my closest friend. It took them awhile, but finally I gave up and I was like “why not?”

Walking through the complex, I was amaze because I faced two shiny silver buildings just like the twin towers, but our devious interest was the pool. I watched the clock carefully, marking off in my head where in school day I was supposed to be. Perusing the large round pool, I couldn’t help but keep staring at the waterfall, because it was like I was looking at a waterfall from the woods. Splashing down such a beautiful sky blue color and the grass surrounding the edges and background of the pool. Full speed, I put my phone, book bag and just rushed to jump inside the pool with my uniform on. One awful thing I didn’t do was touch the water to feel if it was cold or warm, only because as soon as my body touched the water, I felt my whole body become numb as if you were jumping into a bucket of ice.
