I didn’t go to school one day when I was in middle school. It was a beautiful day. It was sunny and clear. The sky was blue. There were a few white clouds. I was very happy this day.

I ate breakfast then rode my bike to school. I met some good friends on my way to school. They were going to Cao Xian City. They wanted me to go with them. I said, ”I need to go to school. I can’t go with you.”

They didn’t let me go to school and asked me sincerely. Finally, I agreed. I called my teacher, and told him, ”I’m sick. I can’t go to class today.” The teacher said, ”Stay home and take care of yourself.”

My friends and I went to the city. We visited other friends. We hung out, ate and drank. We went to the shopping mall and saw a lot of things: some clothes stores, book stores, and many different fruits, such as apples, oranges, bananas, pears, etc.

Suddenly, I saw two of my school teachers. I wanted to hide behind my friends, but I didn’t have time. The teachers walked up to me and said hello. I thought, ”I’m finished, my teacher will know I lied.” I told my friends about it. They said, “It’s a nice day. We just visited anywhere we wanted to. Don’t worry about your teacher and school things.” Today was our day. I thought so.

The next day, I went to school, and my teacher called me to his office. I was afraid. I went into the office and I didn’t look into my teacher’s face. He asked me, ”What happened yesterday?”

I knew the teachers that I met yesterday had told my teacher about the shopping mall. I told the truth. He was very angry; he slapped me on the face a few times. My face became red and I was very afraid. I said to the teacher, ”I won’t do it again and I won’t lie anymore.”

After this, I never skipped a class.
