The Liar (1022 words)
“Beep-Beep, Beep-Beep” went my alarm at quarter past seven. I rolled over turned it off and sat upright in my bed. Stretching my arms and talking a great yawn I spotted the sun seeping through the gaps in my curtains. I slowly stepped out of bed and proceed towards the window to open the curtains. It saw that I was a glorious sunny day and not a cloud to be seen in the sky. This sight would normally evoke happiness and joy into my morning but on this occasion this wasn’t the case. I was going to have to go to school when I instead could be out enjoying the weather but I thought to myself sure everyone else will be in school so I might as well go in.
I got up and went about my normal pre-school routine but just as I was about to put on my uniform when Steve rang me. “Kev what are you up to today?” “Going to school like every one else” I replied. “No your not listen, I’m thinking of driving me, you and Karl down to Brittas for the day you in?” “Well I donno what if we get caught and what will I tell my Mum?” Don’t worry we can’t get caught, no one will be in cause of the weather and sure just lie to your Mum, say you have training or something.” “Ok ye, I’m in” “Great I’ll pick you up round the corner from yours at 8” “Cool.” I put the phone down, perhaps today wasn’t going to be as depressing as I had previously thought. I continued to put on my uniform and got a bag together with stuff to change into and ran down the stairs with excitement. Now I had to prepare the lie. As I was just leaving the house I shouted out to my Mum, “I’m off now and I’ll be home a little late I’ve rugby training after school is that ok?” “Yeah just don’t be too late” she replied
Parents for Public Schools Today, the push for more accountability of student performance changed how assessment will be measured and judged in public schools. Not only will students be assessed through test scores, but also through attendance, school work, and observations. Parents hold the schools responsible for the advancement of their students' knowledge. Different tests are given to measure ...
“Ok thanks mum.” Yes she had bought it I was free for the day the chances of me getting caught were so slim and I was full of confidence.
I ran round the corner and sure enough there was Steve in the drivers seat and Karl in the back. I quickly jumped in the passenger seat and threw my bags in the back seat beside Karl and we were off. The car journey was great craic with the widow’s downs wind in our hair and not a care in the world. We thought we were the business with our aviator sun glasses on and the music blaring as we bombed along the M11 at 120 kilometres an hour. Within no time we were at Steve’s gaff in Brittas and we were unloading the car of all the gear we had brought with us. We decided to grab bit to eat before going down to the beach so we settled down inside to a bit of television and our school packed lunches.
When we finally got to the beach it was bliss. The water was a perfect not too cold but enough to leave you feeling refreshed and crystal clear sky. At first we all lay out on the beach just soaking up the heat but this bored us very quickly. Luckily Steve had two jet skies and his parents had left the keys in them so we took them for a spin in turn racing up and down the beach. Karl was unreal at it hoping over waves, doing the 360’s you name he could do it and he showed us all how to do it. It was such a good laugh. Then we took to a bit of body boarding towards the end as the waves had picked but they did last very long and we headed back to the house.
When we had got back to the house after carefully putting back everything we had taken out as not to leave a trace sure not to of us being there we checked our phones. Everybody so far was clear no one had reported us missing from school and our parents hadn’t decided to do a sneaky check up on us as they sometimes liked to do. So we pilled all our gear into the car this time I was in the back and we sped off back towards home. In the car we all decided it was a day well spent and that if possible we would do it again. Everyone reflected on there favourite bits. Mine I have to say had to be the jet skiing as it was the first time I had tried it.
Over time things change. Some things change for the better while other things change for the worse. One thing that's bound to change though is your environment. Personally I have seen my hometown go through many changes during the eleven years that I have resided in Gwinnett County. A few of the accounts which have changed in my hometown throughout time have been the population including ...
When Steve finally dropped me off last to the top of my road it was quarter to six and I had put my uniform on as not to give away that I had bunked off school. I rounded the corner into my driveway and put the key in the door only to be welcomed by the angry stares of both my Mum and Dad. This was not good I thought. “Where have you been all day?” Mum asked. “At school and then I had training like I said earlier Mum.” “No you weren’t because you father and I have just received a telephone call from the school reporting your absence, so where were you because I now know your lying.” My heart sank this was the moment I had been dreading but never thought it would actually come. At this point in time I decided it was best just to confess all I had done but without incriminating anyone else of course. This didn’t go down well with my parents and I was grounded for a whole month. No going out, no friends over and not even any training I was depressed. That said I now completely why my parents did what they did but for weeks I was so annoyed for letting myself go that day. Next time a idea like that comes along I think I’ll think twice before making any decisions.
