Broken Window
by Andres Rojas


One day I was in my neighborhood with my friends Sebastian and Felipe, and we were playing soccer next to a clubhouse. I kicked the ball so hard that it didn’t go the way I wanted—it went to the clubhouse window and broke it. We started running out of that place and my friend Felipe fell while we all were running. In the end, the security guard chased us and caught us while Felipe was at home with his parents, cleaning up where he fell and hurt himself. We had to pay for the window and I had to work the whole week so I could pay. Also, I was grounded for three weeks.
