Let me tell you about my life. I love basketball but I can’t play anymore. I am watching a game at a stadium. All my friends are practicing just before the big game. It’s start time, I’m desperate to jump on that court and start playing. But that’s impossible for me.
Sadly, I go home, I lay on my bed and try to think of something to cheer myself up. My dad knocks on my door and asks me to come with him. I’m worried because of the way he says it. We get into the car, I start to feel anxious, my dad is acting really weird, he keeps looking at me and smiling.
He parks his car near a huge building, all of a sudden an ambulance pulls out in front. My dad grabs my wheelchair helps me onto it and we move to the fast, smooth, see through glass. We walk through the glass door, it opens, we get to a door that has Room 1 on it. We go in and wait, it’s always pretty scary waiting, especially when you’re not sure why your even here. I guess I just have to trust my dad.
The doctor is there waiting for us to enter. We all see this shiny, metallic, robotic leg sitting on the bench. A shock runs through my body. The doctor helps me put it on but I’m not strong enough so then my dad comes and we all work together to fit my new leg to my body. When I first get up I feel worried because I think It’s not going to work. The doctor asks me to stand up so he can see me balance. Nervously I walk from one end of the room to the other. It’s hard to walk because I don’t remember how to walk. I take one step and then another I have got the hang of it now. I’m as happy as a pig playing in mud! This is the best day ever.
My dream begins now. There is only 1 minute left in the game, the score stands at 3 to 2, I quickly shoot the ball before time runs out. I score the winning goal I have achieved my dream. I can tick that off my list.
Bounce, bounce, bounce, I hope I can achieve more goals in my life.
