When people ask me what was the game that you played most when you were a kid, my answer is “hide and seek”. I think most people have played this game when they were young. I can’t remember how many times I played this game with my little friends but I do remember that one time when we played “hide and seek”, one of my little friends and I almost lost our way. That was a summer day when I was six years old. As usual, when I almost finished my dinner, I heard one of my little friends shout in front of my house,” Yi, have you finished your dinner yet?

Hurry up, come out and play, we are waiting for you. ” “Yeah, I’m coming, just one second! ” I shouted back as soon as I quickly finished the food in the bowl and put the bowl on the table and ran out of the house. My mom was always shouting,” Be careful when you are playing, don’t come back late! ” Here let me say something about my dear, little friends first. Actually, most of my friends were my neighbors; we lived very close, only one or two blocks from each other. For most of us we were the only children of the family.

We didn’t like to stay home alone by ourselves and we always played together. The ages among us then were from four or five years old to nine or ten years old. As usual, at the beginning of playing “hide and seek”, we played rock- paper- scissors to decide who will call “hide and seek”. After that the older ones decided the hiding area which is always from one’s house to another’s. When I was hiding, I liked to hide with a girl named Hong who was two years older than me and I called her “Hong sister”.

This time when we were looking for a place to hide, we saw a small truck parked in front of a house, and what made us happy was that the back door of the truck was unlocked, so Hong and I decided to hide in the truck. We walked towards the truck quietly and Hong helped me get into the truck by stepping up the small ladder at back of the truck, and then she got herself on the truck too. We closed the back door of the truck and hid quietly. At the same time we were listening to what was happening outside.

At the end, all the hiding girls and boys were found by the seeker except Hong and me, and the seeker was still busy looking for us. Just at the moment, when we were happy and giggling about not being found out, we felt the truck move a little. At the same time we heard the sound of the engine engaging. When we found out what happened, the truck had almost moved a few miles away from where it was parked. “Hong, what can we do? ” I asked. “I don’t know. What can we do? ” Hong also didn’t have an idea as the truck was moving.

But only a few second later, Hong was shouting out loudly, ” Stop! Please stop! We are in back of the truck! … ” At the same time she tried to hit the truck to make some noise. I was almost bursting into tears but instead I joined Hong and shouted as loudly as I could. The driver seemed to not hear from us at the beginning, but later the truck stopped slowly. The driver looked a little surprised when he saw the two of us in his truck, but when he heard Hong’s explanation, he drove us back.

When we got off the truck, one of our friends saw us first and shouted, Look, they are here! ” They all got around us and asked what happened, but I couldn’t say a word because I started crying instead. I knew I was almost lost and would never see my parents and friends again. When I back home, I didn’t tell my mom what just happened for I was afraid she would blame me. I just asked my mom if I could sleep with her that night. My mom agreed and I remember that night I was hugging my mom tightly and falling to sleep. After that, I have never wanted to play hide and seek again.
