My cue card topic is, ‘Talk about a time when you were scared’. There are various emotions that a human exhibits and there are various instances where one feels scared. One such time was coming back to my home from dropping a friend off at the railway station. It was about 7 o’clock in the evening and it was dark. I suddenly realized that my scooty had a flat tyre and I was in an isolated area. But I did not lose hope and tried dragging my scooty away towards my home as I was only 10-15 minutes away from my home. But when I reached a certain spot, it was a dimly-lit area which otherwise used to be well-lit. But due to some technical malfunction on that day it was dark at that time. So I got scared and since I was alone and it was almost night-time, there was no activity nearby. I tried to turn on the location on my phone and I called my parents and informed them of my location where I was. It took them five to ten minutes to reach there and they helped me out and they parked my scooty in a nearby area and they took me home. So that was the time when I felt really scared but I’m very glad that I did not lose hope and used my presence of mind to tackle the situation and called my parents in time so that they could come and pick me up. Thank you.
