The Monkey bars
David rushes to the monkey bars hoping to be first, but he sees the new kid is there already.
“There can only be one person on the monkey bars and that is me!” David
says under his breath.
“ Let's have a monkey bar grip off, last one to stay on gets the monkey bars for a week”
“Okay” the boy replies
Five minutes in, they’re barely holding on, and all the kids from the school are all gathered round.
“ Are you slipping?” David says in disbelief that the new boy is still hanging on.
‘I’m trying to hold on’ he shouted, as a loud truck comes past.
