“Challenge accepted” I blurted before I could think. Everyone laughed and then all slumped off.
The next day I went to the challenge.
I did lunges all the way to the beginning and finish line.
It looked like the whole school was here to watch me fail.
I was against Alana Holt the fastest girl in the school.
“On your mark ……… GO” boomed Jason the commentator.
We ran side by side until half way when Alana ran straight ahead of me.
She was the winner whilst I faced humiliation.
That’s why I always come last, scared of humiliation.
