My friend Tabitha and I are studying in the same class in the same school. We happen to live in the same street as well! One day, as usual, I was waiting for my dad to start the bike so he can drop me off at school when I noticed that Tabitha’s dad has trouble starting his. I had an idea. I told my dad that Tabitha and I would walk to school. He asked me why, and I told him that Tabitha’s dad was having trouble with his bike, and rather than offering her to come with us, it would be better for us to walk to school.

Tabitha and I went to school by foot. Not only does it give us a chance to spend more time together and talk, but also keeps us healthy.
