Prompt: …he felt really ill…
One morning, Riley woke up to the birds chirping and the cold wind rushing through the forest outside. Today was the day of the big maths test at school, and he felt really ill.
“Come on! Come on! Get up or you’ll be late for school,” his mother said to him in haste.
“I can’t go today. I feel really sick,” Riley pleaded.
“No. You have that big maths test so you can’t miss school, and that’s final!” his mother scolded.
So Riley pulled himself out of bed, got dressed and went to school after all, despite being extremely unwell.
