My Trespassing Injury

Ethan Henderson
ENG 111-D34P –Narrative Essay
Mrs. Lancer
February 6, 2014
Being a 12-year-old boy and bored are the two ingredients that made the recipe for disaster this particular day. It would be a day I would remember for the rest of my life. I now know that I should be aware of all of my actions and the consequences that follow…
It was about 6:00 at nightin the afternoon when my best friend, Chase, and I decided to go play a little soccer at the John Tyler Soccer Fields. Let me tell you a little something about my partner-in-crime, Chase. Chase was a devious 12 –year-old just like me. We got into all sorts of mischief like fishing all the fish out of neighbors’ ponds, stealing packs of gum from the local gas station, ‘ding-dong’ ditching neighbors’ houses—this is just to name a few things. On July 24, 2008, the soccer fields were closed because it was a weekend, and there were not any due to it being a weekday with no extra curricular activities going on that evening. It was time for us to go stir up some more trouble.
Being the devious 12-y year- olds we were, I yelled to Chase, “Let’s hop these fences and go play some soccer.” Unsure, Chase hesitantly replied, “I don’t know man the fences are pretty tall, and we shouldn’t be trespassing...” But being the good bud he was, Chase caved in and followed my lead. We hopped over the fences and started to playing ‘World Cup.’
Chase and I were always very competitive even when we were into mischief together. As we ran up and down the soccer field, we pushed and shoved each other trying to maintain possession of the ball because each goal went back and forth between us. Up until this point, it was a tie game; but we decided to take a quick water break before going back to play for the final point. Consumed in all the fun we were having, we didn’t even realize that trouble was headed our way. “Hey! Hold it right there you two!” a voice screamed in the distance. When Chase and I looked up, we identified a familiar face of ‘trouble’, and we knew we had to haul ass IMMEDIATELY!
The ‘trouble’ just so happened to be the school security guard, Marvin, who was known for being a real jerk. He was the scumbag who had gotten us in trouble for fishing in his pond. To be quite honest, we had thought Marvin was awesome considering he was the only one in the neighborhood that had his own pond. But after he had told our parents about what we had done to his pond, our parents gave us the whipping of a lifetime! Needless to say we didn’t think the same of Marvin after that. So ultimately Chase and I knew that if he caught us, we would be in some serious trouble with our parents.
So as Marvin continued to approach us, we panicked, immediately began to run and try to hop back over the fence. We were almost successful, but aAs I attempted to climb over the fence, my foot slipped! Simultaneously, while I tried to hop over the top of the fence and my hand gothad...
