"There was nothing wrong with it I thought., I was a teenager and had nothing to do, so me and a few friends would play in the graveyard. It was a great place to play soldiers, build dens,...

We would also have competitions like, the highest tree climber, long jumping etc... but the hurdles were the one I was good at. We would run at the long line of grave stones and leap over each one 3,4,5 in a row . I was the champion with 6 hurdles, until one evening around dusk I started my run with 7 in mind, over I went 1,2,3,4,5,6 until I tripped. Not just tripped something had my ankle I tried to pull away, but it was so tight I couldn't see it clearly. My eyes were full of tears a cable or root perhaps, but it hurt twisting. I cried out with the pain, my friends came running over and I was released in an instant....

After the trip we looked around no cable or root, or anything. I tell you now as clear as I see you, that the ground was clear of anything I could fall over. I limped home and was off school for a week. The doctor said why did the bruising look like finger marks? had I been fighting or was it a punishment ?.... I didn't dare say what I'd done.

Well the years have passed and now I have arthritis in my ankle, the surgeon says I will have to walk with a stick. I wish I had stuck to 6 hurdles not 7!
