The Most Adventurous Thing I've Ever Done

The most adventurous thing I have ever done is go back home by myself.

It was in August, just two days before the summer holiday. Since my parents did not pay the school bus fare, I needed to go home alone. I have never gone back home without my parents, so I was very excited because it was my first time ever.

While I was going to the MTR station, it was hot, the sun was making our city feel like an oven. The distance was as long as a marathon. It took 20 minutes to arrive home.

I was carrying a bag, standing beside the railway. It weighed a ton and the train took a century to arrive! I couldn’t find a seat, but at least I had a turn to put my bag down. When I arrived home, I was relieved and prayed for my parents to submit the school bus fare.

What an adventure! Loved your use of hyperboles, Jason! Loved how you unraveled the story. Try to spend some time at the end of your piece.
