The rusty gate

"What are we going to do today?" I said 

My auntie Diane who stood in front of me with her blond, curly hair flowing down to her shoulders like a frothing waterfall, said "You'll see soon". She was concentrating on putting the pies in the oven.

I was so excited. 

FINALLY! the time had come. My auntie finished the baking and with my uncle we started walking to the rusty gate in the middle of the farm. 

They started taking it off, I didn't understand what they were doing so I decided to ask. 

"What are you doing with that gate?" 

Uncle Pete replied "Well, we're taking it to the dump." 

I glowed with joy.

Uncle Pete started unscrewing the screws which sounded like an old door opening. My heart was as warm as the sun that was on my back as I saw the gate coming off the fence. 

My auntie was sitting next to me with her hands on my lap to my surprise she said "I love you" and I replied with "I love you too".

Then my auntie and uncle went inside their small, white house to clean up. The next moment I found myself jumping on the gate. I just couldn't help it.  I felt the sunshine on my face and I lit up. 

"I love today," I thought to myself. 

Today is going ok and I think it will be ok to jump on this rusty no good gate.

But my shadows were still following me like prancing hyenas ready for their kill. I didn't like it, it felt scary. I did not see the hole in the gate and suddenly, I fell through it. 

The pain struck me over and over again as I screamed, my tears thick as tree trunks, poured down my face. It felt like I was going to die.

I heard my auntie running over, she picked me up and carried me inside and to my biggest surprise my mum was inside. It was too good to be true. I love my mum so much!!! I thought to myself and I hugged her so tight she couldn't breath.
