AN UNFORGETABLE MOMENT in MY LIFE
It is safe to say that almost everyone in this world has experienced a moment that he or she will not be able to forget for the rest of life. I am no exception. I have experienced so many mystery things in my life. Some of them were strange, some were creepy and others were interesting.

Me, my twin sister and my cousins were extremely happy seeing each other. Then, suddenly my cousins came up with the idea that we all would go swimming in the huge river behind my Great Grandma’s house. They all knew how to swim and were really good at it but not us. My twin sister and I did not even dare to go near by the water just because our mom always told us so. However, it was so hot that day and the thinking of floating along in the cool water made me come up with the silliest idea ever. I told my sister to sneak out the house by the back door and went swimming without asking mom for permission. Unfortunately, my idea was a mistake. When we were there at the river’s shore, I suddenly forgot everything that my mom always said. I just wanted to jump right into the cool water but suddenly I remembered that I did now know how to swim and neither was my twin. “Don’t worry!...
