We started with a basic story idea. Liam is winning the cross country but he has gone out too fast. Sweetie overtakes him and wins. Here is Moeez’s version.
The third time around Liam feels like he had pins stuck in his feet. He could hardly take another step. It felt as if a 50kg man was pulling him down . Liam could smell the sweat pouring from his chin down to his feet. Liam thought that he was going to puke.
Sweetie was cruising, then she saw her chance. She started to sprint. She could feel sweat pouring out her shoes. She was sure that she would win. Her eyes were focused on the finish line. Sweetie picked her speed up and passed Liam. Liam slipped. He could feel the pain. It felt as if his legs are broken. Sweetie sped up and crossed the finish line with joy.
“Mummy” said Liam.
“SHAME!” said Sweetie.
