During my summer holidays, I was on a streak of drawing sceneries every day. While browsing through the internet, I found a breath-taking scenery of the beach. So, I asked my mother if it was good because she was the one who got me going on a streak of drawing scenic views. She agreed that I could draw it.
After my sister heard what my mother said. she suddenly sprang up from the sofa while watching TV and jumped on me, and I let out a loud squeak in pain. My sister started break dancing and asked me if she could be my assistant. I agreed as I knew I would feel bored doing it alone. I sprinted to my room, got my book out, threw my crayons on to my sister’s chest and she pushed it onto the table. We used our expertise of origami and folded paper, and started enjoying the process. Then I began to marge the colours and smudged them for the background. My sister started wrapping and I started hitting my brush to the table getting into the rhythm. I blindly drew the clouds and the ripples of the water. They came out perfectly and I gave a pat on my back. It was almost done.
As soon as I was done patting my back, I saw my sister finishing the outline. Before I could scold her, she put food in my mouth and made me observe it carefully and I was screeching on the floor in happiness. The drawing made me feel on top of the world and I was full of joy. My sister and I bonded because of our team work. And now it’s my wallpaper!
