Late for school

On day, when I was ten years old I got up for school in the morning but unfortunately I got up late. When I went to where the bus should be stop I considered that I missed the bus. I remembered that there is a bus going late to school but it is in a far area from the place I live. So, I ran to that area hoping that the bus hadn't left yet. I ran to there with lots of ideas of the punishment that my father would give me if he knew. I reached where the bus should be stop but I hadn't seen it. From that point I considered that my father is going to punish me for not attending school. Without thinking, I walked crying to the school which is 7km far. Suddenly the sports teacher of our school passed by me and stopped to take me with him to school. I opened the door of his car and sat in the back seat. Along the trip to the school we didn't talk. Finally, when we arrived the school, I went laughing to my friends to tell them about that morning. From that day on, I've never missed the bus again.

Narrative Paragraphs

Narrative paragraphs: tell a story or relay a sequence of events:Told in chronological order, that is the order in which they happened a Narrative paragraph most often tells a story in order to illustrate or demonstrate a point.

The topic sentence should establish a contention which the author will set out to prove in the paragraph.

example: Kahild's family went on a fishing trip to Musandam. So what? What is the appeal? Fishing at Musandam proved to be an enjoyable outing For Khalid and his family.

This sentence sets out something to be proven in
the paragraph and is more appealing to the reader. The paragraph will tell the story of the family’s fishing trip, but it will do so in a way which proves the trip to have been enjoyable.
