Answer

Disclaimer: This is a sample answer. Students are advised to write the answer based on their own personal experience and observation.

One day it was raining heavily outside. I wanted to go out and play with my friends in the evening. I asked my mother, but she refused to let me go. After half an hour, I slipped away from home and went outside to play. When I went inside the park, the guard locked the door from outside and went back away. I got very scared, as I was not able to see anyone nearby. I started roaring and crying. My mother came running away to the park to search me. I felt guilty and said sorry to her.
