The Day I Got Wet In Rain Essay

It was Sunday and I decided to visit one of my friends. Even during the early hours of the day it was warm. There was no sign of rain as the day temperature was well above 40°C. I had hardly covered half the distance to my friend’s house on my cycle when surprisingly, I noticed a sudden change in the weather.

Just out-of-now here clouds covered the sky and the bright day turned to a cool evening. Within few seconds there were big drops of rain followed by a thick shower. This unexpected change in the weather created confusion as people ran here and there to take shelter. People at the bus stop moved closely under the shed.

Shops were full of surprised people. I was so overjoyed that I continued to move on and let myself get wet completely. I saw people standing out in the balcony or roof top of their houses thoroughly enjoying the showers. Children moved out on the streets almost shrieking in laughter. They sailed their paper boats in the flowing rain water. All the dirt from plants and trees was washed off.

The grass and leaves on the plants and trees which looked withered in the heat of the summer shone with new life. The wet houses looked as if freshly painted. A few birds sat on the electricity and telephone wires chirruping and preening their feathers. In whole, nature had adorned itself with fresh beauty.

Rains can be troublesome too! I realised this when I saw all the roads, streets and lanes covered with mud. Water collected in holes and small pools of water appeared everywhere. I did not stop anywhere. On reaching my friend’s house I found him hanging out on the roof.

He shouted happily when he saw me. I joined him and we both laughed at each other’s condition. After some time his mother called us inside and served some delicious snacks. We did not stay indoors for long. We were back on the roof playing and splashing the rain water.

The rain stopped as soon as it had come. I longed to get back home and change my clothes. I made my friend good bye and rushed for home.

A Memorable Experience: Love In The Rain

It was raining again. I sat at the table and looked at the rain through the windows. The rain pounded on my windows, just liked beans dropping into the frying pan. Ten years ago, there was also a rain as heavy as today's, and it was the first time that I found the love from a person that I didn't know.

It happened when I was in elementary school. When I studied in grade five, one day, my father bought a new red bicycle for me, and I was very happy at that time because I had never had my own bicycle before. Because of children's curiosity, I wanted to try it as soon as possible. At that time, there were lots of dark clouds in the sky, and the heavy rain would come soon, but I didn't notice that. I just jumped on the bicycle and rode it as fast as I could from my house.

Five minutes later, it began to rain, and I rode faster than my normal speed because I was eager to go home. But it was too late, the rain quickly became very heavy, and I was wet all over, just liked a duck came from the water. When I rode to the intersection, I couldn't slow down, and I just slipped directly to the section. At that time, a car came towards me directly. Finally, it knocked me off. There were four people in the car, but none of them got off, and the driver just said, "Be careful next time!" Then they just drove away and left me alone. After that, I lay there and couldn't move myself, just liked a lump of wood, and I wasn't even aware of my anger or my wounds.

Twenty minutes past, I was still under the same situation. I was almost unconscious, and I just felt like a piece of ice floating on the water. Then I saw a little white thing moving toward me, and it became bigger and bigger. It was not a white thing but was a young lady who wore a white coat. I couldn't see her face clearly because my sight was really foggy, and I just remember her hair. She had...
