    When I was younger I broke one of my grandmother’s favorite lamps ever. So she punished me and locked me in my room for 2 days. I felt like one of those people in the movie trapped in that little shack for a just period of time. So I had asked my mom for food she said wait till dinner time but you have to eat in your room. So if you break your grandmother’s favorite lamp you will get punished and locked in your room for 2 days like I was. So never ever do you want to break your grandmother’s favorite lamp. So when my 2 day punishment was up I apologized and said sorry about your lamp and I will pay for it. So here is what really happened to the lamp me and my brother were arguing over something stupid. After we were done arguing he pushed me and then I pushed him back and so after I pushed him back he pushed me a lot a harder and I fell back into the lamp and got in trouble. You know how that goes he don’t get caught or in trouble but I do. I thought I would only be the one to ever get in trouble.

    It felt like I was being hunted. I was scared for my life but I knew I was only in trouble with my mom. Although I did not know how much I was in trouble so I was just sitting there in my bed. Doing absolutely nothing just sitting there alone.
