In my story “Missing the train” I used foreshadowing to show that I was late to school by missing the train, to support the fact that whenever you don’t be on time for the first part then you will not be on time for the next part. I was sleeping peacefully under the warm covers until my annoying alarm clock started ringing its annoying tone. I got up and turn off the alarm and that’s when I realized how cold the floor was. I quickly ran to the bathroom when I realized I left the window open last night and the bathroom was freezing. There was a shiver that ran though my spine and that’s when the goosebumps formed. I turned on the warm water and washed my face with my face wash that somehow got in my eyes and started to burn. I tried to wash it off with water but it still stung but slowly went away. I felt disgusting so I got dressed and put on my make up so I looked presentable. I didn’t like my outfit so I changed it about 3 times. I looked at the clock that’s when I realized that I was late so I quickly ate my breakfast and ran out the door to catch the train I always take when I realized I missed it, so I had to wait at the train station for about 10 minutes. It was really cold out in the morning so I had to wait downstairs where is smells bad, the smell made me want to throw up. The train finally came and I had to sit in between two kids playing fun run this game and they were hitting me every time they would make a move. I was very annoyed and of course I get off at the last stop. The train ride wouldn’t have been so bad if the 2 kids weren’t there. After I got out of the train station I had to wait for the bus for a long time. I saw my bus come after 15 minutes; I was very annoyed because that’s when I realized I wasn’t going to make it to school on time.
