“We will be going in 10 minutes!” shouted Mrs Tui. She struggled to get everyone’s attention. Her words were lost. “Wait up Sia!” I yelled. My legs tiredly walked until I reached my destination. “Make sure to stay with your group” instructed Mrs Tui. The sun was like an oven, burning everything and anything under it.
“We are finally here” I thought to myself. The sound of loud engines distracted my thought. “Our train will come in 8 minutes, make sure to stay together” commanded Mrs Tui. “ Are you excited?” inquired Ierei. I cheerfully shook my head. “Mind the gap” a unfamiliar voice popped up.
“We are now arriving at Panmure” the robotic voice announced. My heart was in my throat.
We walked from the train station to Skate Land. Skateland is beside Mount Wellington. “It doesn’t look big” I thought. That thought changed once I stepped into the building. “Wow.” I was astonished. Their was a big skating rink and spectator seats surrounding it. “ Welcome to SkateLand” a unknown voice welcomed. “Go to the stand and ask for your size” ordered Mrs Tui.
I stood up cautions of my aching legs, and plodded to the stand. “Size 9 please” I asked. I slowly eased my feet into my shoes and headed to the skating rink. At first it was hard to find my balance. A hour later I had improved, alot. “Can you help me Ierei?” I cried. I was scared to death. Before I knew it I was lying on the floor helplessly. I had fallen to the ground a couple of times. I had gotten used to it, and it turned into alot of fun. “You’ve got 45 minutes left” declared Mrs Tui. I sighed.
“We will now be walking up Mt. Wellington” proclaimed Mrs Tui. I sighed with a horrified expression. I slowly picked up my feet and dragged myself up the steep hill. “We’re nearly there!” encouraged Ierei. I felt like fainting.
“ We made it !” I screamed in exhaustion. I sat down and concentrated on regaining my breath. “We have 10 minutes left” announced Mrs Tui.
Walking down the hill was hard. I was extremely tired and dehydrated. “I’ll see you tomorrow Hola” I uttered as I strolled down the hill.
