It was 3:13 AM on the 27 th of September and I finally decided to call it a day and return home from my best friend’s birthday party. It was chilly outside, but I live in Miami, so freezing was never a problem. Although it was late, I wasn’t worried about arriving home. I took my phone out of my purse and opened Über before placing a pick-up request. A few seconds later I got a notification from a guy named Zach who away from me, saying accepted the request and was only a few minutes that he could pick me up. I waited. After about three minutes I saw a silver Mercedes pull up in front of the club. I got a notification from Über shortly after saying that my driver had arrived. I walked over to car and noticed that the guy in the driver’s seat was scrolling through the app. I slowly opened the door to the passenger’s seat and asked him and told me that he was. I got what my destination was. I since I had already put my access to it.

Corola de lumini Revistă şcolară My heart was starting to race as I realized that the car was slowing down. Adrenaline rushed through my body; he was reaching for the button that locked all of the doors. That’s when I realized that something was extremely wrong. In a fraction of a second I grabbed my bag and blasted out of the door, totally forgetting about my light headedness. I ran as fast as I could in my highheels before reaching a gas station. Luckily, the shop owner was kind enough to give me a bottle of water so I would calm down. I told her what had happened and she made sure to give me a lecture about getting into stranger’s cars. She also called a cab for me (a real one this time) and checked the driver before letting me go home. As soon as I entered my apartment I took of my heels and threw my bag across the room. I plopped on my bed and felt asleep, thinking that I was extremely lucky to feel the comfort of my bed again.

Alan is a really nice guy and Christina makes good jokes so we became friends immediately. Both of them are taller than me so they often call me a dwarf. While we were riding our bikes, Christina didn’t pay attention to the road and tripped over a rock. going too fast. I and but luckily Christina Christina felt dizzy because she was Alan ran over with a first-aid kit wasn’t hurt at all. We arrived at a café named “The Bear”. It looked quite nice because it was surrounded by trees. The legends say that the café is called “The Bear” because the owners were bear hunters. We heard that there was a robbery while we visited that café. They said that t the thief used a crowbar to open one of the locked rooms where staff members put their things. The robber looked like a beggar. His clothes were dirty and his face was full of wrinkles. When they arrested him, they took a box and threw it at him while the officers could tackle him. After the robber was arrested, the owner of the café told us this: “Listen kids! Things like this happen every day, so be prepared!” Oros Natalia, VIII B 46
