I was so happy to go to AUB pool without my water wings. Then, my sister said I have to stay close to the edge of the pool.
I ran to my dad’s bedroom and told him what Leyla said. We argued about it for a long time. I told my dad that now I’d taken swimming lessons I felt confident to be able to swim in the pool. I was excited to try. Even my mum came and calmly told me that I have to stay near the edge. Then, my mum went and spoke to my sister. Leyla told her that she wanted to swim alone in the middle of the pool and not have to worry about watching out for me. Dad reminded us that we were losing time at the pool. I knew he was right and that I had to stay near the edge, I just didn’t want to admit it.
We walked a few minutes from our house to the pool. We passed the candy machine, but dad wouldn’t let me have any. You guessed it, when we got to the pool I had to stay near to the edge. All because of my annoying sister!
