One bright, sunny day, Josh and his big brother Matthew decided to go for a bike ride around the park on their street with Josh’s friend, Caleb. Josh was about to leave when he realised he didn’t have his helmet and knee pads. He checked everywhere! His bedroom, the living room, the cupboard under the stairs and even the bathroom! Where could they be?
Matthew started to get very annoyed, and Josh didn’t want to be late either. So the two boys left without finding Josh’s helmet and knee pads.. Before they could race out the door, their Mum asked “Do you boys have your gear?” Just as Josh was about to say “No,” Matthew yelled “Yeah Mum. See ya!” “Hey!” Josh said once they were out of the door. “Why did you lie?” “Because she’ll get worried for no reason! It’ll be fine, trust me!”
Finally Josh and Matthew got to the park. “Where were you?” asked Caleb. “Don’t worry” Josh said. “Let’s go!” The boys rode around and around the paths and up the hill. “Race you back down!” said Caleb. “You’re on!” Josh replied.
He started riding down the hill going faster and faster and faster! He turned around to see where Caleb was. When he turned back, he saw that he was about to crash into a huge rock. Josh swerved out of the way just in time but crashed into the path.
Matthew and Caleb raced down the hill to reach Josh. Josh tried to stand up but his knee hurt too much. He looked down and saw a huge graze on his knee. Not only that, he had bumped his head during the fall and there was now a huge bump on it.
But, the thing that upset him the most was that, because he was not being safe and did not look where he was going, Josh’s bike was broken! Josh was so sad and in so much pain that he thought he was going to cry.
