8:55 Mrs Garden told the whole class to sit down and be quiet. We all were split into three groups and two of the people that were in my group, were my best friends Joshua and Aidan. We were told to go to the hall and then from there we went to the bus that waited on the side of the sidewalk. My group was called "Group 3" and we were the last ones on bus three. Some of the Rm 14 students were then part of "Group 3".
9:10 We were finally on our way to One Tree Hill. It took a while, and the road was a bit bumpy too, but at least we got there safely. "Group 3" was the lucky ones because we could climb the mountain first (this is good because we can be the first ones to get it over and done with). We started our quest for victory as we climbed the mountain. Our goal was to climb up and then back down successfully. Our quest was hard, steep and challenging. There were a lot of people on the extinct mountain. There were people on bikes, skateboards and people running. I said hello to them all.
I then continued to climb as I kept a pattern in my head going " 1-2-1-2-1-2-1-2-1-2". We crossed a corner and pushed some branches out of the way. To my amazement, I saw the height of success. The pattern got faster "1-2-1-2-1-2-1-2-1-2-1-2-1-2-1-2". I was so close to the top when I saw a steep hill. I almost dropped faintly when a song at the back of my head played. It was Michael Jackson's "On The Line". All of a sudden, I could feel my tank re-charge. Then I pumped and pumped with the song still in my head. Then as I pulled myself up I stood on a stack of bricks, stretched my arms and then looked at the view as I went down. I smiled and knew I had reached the height of competition, in other words "The Summit".
