It was a bright Sunday morning.The sun was not too fierce and there was a gentle breeze. It did not seem as though it was going to rain,either. in short ,it appeared to be the right day for an outing. Mary, Christina, Lucy and myself called an emergency meeting and decided to spend the day at the Lagoon. It would be picnic-cum -swimming session for the morning and, if the weather permitted , we would camp overnight and have a barbecue party, too.
We divided among overselves the responsibility of bringing the necessary items. In order to keep costs to the minimum , we decided to prepare the food ourselves instead of buying it. The drinks we decided to buy as occassion warranted.
I was supposed to meet my friends at the bus interchange that was about a kilometer from my home. All dressed for the outing and with a heart filled with excitment , I walked tot he nearest bus stop and i was at the agreed bus interchange in about twenty minutes. One by one, Mary , Lucy and Christina arrived at the proposed meeting place. Then we took the bus taht went to the Lagoon area.
When we reached the place, we alighted from the bus. Carrying all our things , talking and laughing merrily, we walked towards the Lagoon to look for a shady spot .
We has hardly walked thirty meters from the bus stop where we alighted when i slipped and fell into a deep hole . I yelled and scremed partly out of fear and partly because of the sharp pain in my right leg. I struggled to get out of the pit but could not. My friends gave a helping hand but their attempt too turned out to be futile . The pain in my right leg became more and more acute and un bearable. I thought i was going to faint because of exhaustion. For a moment , I even thought that my fate was to die in the hole.
