flame, swimming, celebrated, white, tomorrow by Grace E
Tomorrow is the anniversary of when it happened. When we celebrated my little sister's 7th birthday, at a swimming pool in Boston. I don’t remember that much about the incident. I remember that I was wearing a plain white costume, and that my flame red, ginger hair was tied up in a ponytail. Mum had told me what happened. That the pool's slide had a loose bolt that had come untightened, and that I was just unlucky that I was the child who's leg it stuck into. But I will always have a souvenir of the incident. Only one leg.
