Story by Devika Sharma of Grade 6 for Think n Ink Contest

I couldn’t believe it. I had made it to the finals. “You’ve got this one,” coach told me. I could feel the wind blowing in my face, the warm glow of the sun. The one shrill note pierced the silence. Tweet! And I was off. Like a rocket. The sensation of the crowd cheering, my heart pulsing, was just overwhelming. One by one I over took the other sprinters. 50 meters to go.  My legs were threatening to collapse underneath me. Finally I overtook the last girl. Her eyes seemed to burn holes into my back. I could tell she hated me for overtaking her. I remember she once told me ‘no one cares about who comes second, only about who comes first.’ Now it was her turn to experience coming second. Then I heard a ripping sound. That could only mean one thing. I had won. I had been the one to tear the ribbon first. The crowd went into a frenzy.  “Devika! Devika! Devika!” they chanted. Then the tone became angrier. And angrier. Then I woke to find my mother above me, yelling at me to wake up.
