A FREE DAY
Bobby had to stay home from school yesterday as he had a bad cold. He sat at the
window of their first floor apartment, looking out at the street below. It was six-thirty
in the morning and there was not much traffic at this time. He could see a man with a
shopping bag across the road, hurrying along in a brisk manner. Trying to walk faster
than the man were two children in uniform carrying heavy school bags.
Bobby looked forward to doing many nice things on this free day. He wanted to make a
card for his sister’s birthday and play with his collection of toy cars, but the scene below
was too interesting to miss!
He watched the people at the bus stop. Mr Khan was speaking to someone on his phone
while Mrs Khan chatted with an old lady standing nearby. A tall thin man was leaning
against the lamp post while his friend squatted beside him. Three girls held hands while
they crossed the road. Their mother watched anxiously, standing at the gate of their house
on this side. Bobby’s mother decided to take him a glass of milk and stay to read him
a new story, but Bobby thought the scene on the road was more fun! He was enjoying his free day!
