I had never been happier, more exited, and at the same time more frightened in one single day. I was 12 years old, when I with my childhood friends: Paco, Santiago, Nicaragua, César, Brenda and Ivan. This summer day started early full of fun and finished late with a frightening ending.
It was 9 am and I was sleeping when I heard that in my window, some stones were thrown up by Santiago and Paco. They were singing in loud voice to wake me up. I dressed up fast and I went to them. That morning I had a very friendly wake up. A very happy and funny morning was to start.
We went to our other friends. All together played with balloons filled with water throwing among each other. Finally, we seemed like a “soup”, consequently; we agreed about going to our house and take a shower. That summer morning was so exciting that we decided to do other things.
In the afternoon my friends and I went to Carl´s Jr. but to get there, on the way, we got lost among the streets. After so much time we arrived to the fast food restaurant. We had dinner, played jokes and almost started a “food fight” among us. Then we come back to our homes.
At night we were playing outside in the streets again. It was like 11 p.m. and we were playing hide and seek. Everybody was found, the only one that was missing was Paco. So all of us screamed his name along the street, but nothing happened.
In the street there was an empty house, that before that day, we had opened to play. We thought that he was there due to we saw a shadow of a boy running in the stairs. We yelled at him, and suddenly Paco went out of his house saying that he was in the bathroom. My friends and I were freaked out and after that, each one went to home.
We will never know who that shadow was. A very frightening night was that one. There is no doubt that, that summer day was so special. To sum up, it was the perfect summer day, a day full of funny experiences, with a meal with joke taste, and a chilling hide and seek. It was a memorable day with all the “flavors” in it.
