3. The Frightment.
So there we were, the boys staring straight at us. I could feel my face flushing red
and then I knew today wasn't going to go down well.
Miss Dimsay took no mercy when I tried to fake a headace. She narrowed her eyes and
"You were fine when you were in the changing rooms, singing, Miss White." She said
sharply. I moaned.
"But Miss-" I started.
"No buts Carmen! Your doing gymnastics." She said firmly and then walked away. I
looked over at the boys again and sighed. Jess gave me a reasuring look. I sighed.
A few minutes later, we were all jogging around the gym hall.
I stayed as close to Lily and Jess as possible. I tried to focus on not falling but I
kept on thinking about Max. I think I was focusing a little too much... I tripped up
and went flying into Max, taking us skidding across the floor. Everyone stopped
jogging and stared at us. I was utterly embarrased. I lay with my eyes crunched
together while Max was lying beside me. I wasn't hurt, only my pride was hurt. I dont
know how he felt. Hopefully he didn't hate me for embarrassing him.
I kept my eyes closed together for a few minutes. I felt Max standing up beside me. I
still didn't dare to open my eyes. In fact, I didn't dare breathe. I heard someone in
the background saying, "Is she okay?" and another, "Is she dead?"
I then knew that I had no option but to open my eyes slowly. So I did so. I looked up
and saw Lily and Jess sighing with realife. I started to laugh a bit. I quickly sat
up. "I'm fine!" I said with a smile. My classmates looked shocked. I jumped up onto
my feet. "See? That was acctually quite fun!" I laughed.
Lily ran over and hugged me tightly. "Carmen?! Oh My God! Are you okay? That was so
scary!" She cried. I just laughed.
"No I'm fine." I said, pushing her off of me. I looked at Max, who was just as
shocked as the rest of our classmates. "Are you okay?" I asked him sorrowfully.
"Y-Yes. I-I'm fine." Max replied, still taking in my quick recovery.
I smiled. "Good." I said. It had went better than I thought it would.
Miss Dimsay had already called our school nurse.
"Carmen? Carmen are you okay? You and Max better go to the nurses office right away.
Do you need anyone to take you? Just incase you faint..." She asked worriedly. I
shook my head.
"I'm fine Miss. Honestly." I said.
"No. You'd better go. Off you go." She insisted, taking Max and I to the doors. "Off
you go now. Be careful not to fall." She said.
I sighed and looked at Max.
"I'm so sorry." I said.
"No its okay Carmen. Come on. We'd better go before Miss Dimsay takes us over
herself." he said.
I smiled and started walking with him to the Nurses room.
