The Egg Race by David

It was two days before the day. I would  attempt the egg race every year and fail because of this guy named John. He wins every year but not this year! I got a lucky egg, a black egg I found in a packet. I walked down stairs. Washing my clothes, I was thinking about the day ahead. I walked down the hall towards the race and the lights flickered as I walked past. But it was time…

We were gone a quarter way down the track and I was in the lead! My fringe was plastered with sweat as I ran with my egg. He caught up near the line but I won! My first ever win in the egg race.
