On my birthday, my uncle gifted me a bicycle. I was excited about my gift. Every day, I would wake up early and take the cycle to the field to learn how to ride it. After two weeks, I had learnt how to ride a bicycle well.

One day, I rode the bicycle on the National Highway without the permission of my parents. I was riding it at a great speed when it skidded on the road and I hurt my leg. I was bleeding and one of my friends called my parents and they took me to the hospital.

I had to undergo treatment for two weeks. After that, I was feeling much better and my wounds had healed. My parents were relieved, but they scolded me for riding the cycle on the NH without their permission.
