A memorable day in my life


One of the most memorable days in my life is writing my Mathematics paper in class X.

It was a bright sunny day.

Just as I was about to enter the hall, I had a sudden misgiving.

I checked my bag and got the jolt of my life.

I had forgotten my hall-ticket.

My heart missed a beat.

Panic stricken, I ran towards the gate.

I dashed into my father who having seen the hall ticket on the table brought it to the college.

I heaved a huge sigh of relief.

It took me a couple of minutes to get back to my normal self.,

I can never erase from my memory  the mixed feelings of anxiety, shock, and relief whenever I look back to that day.

I was able to compose myself take the exam and I came out in flying colors.

                                 I am now extra cautious and double check my bag whenever I step out.
