Personal Narrative : A Car Ride With My Fellow Friends

Improved Essays
"Ring!" sounded the final bell on a Friday afternoon at school. Students sprinted out of class to get to their cars trying to beat the rush of traffic; I was one of them. I stopped by my locker to grab all of my books and then hurried out to my shiny gold Toyota Camry. I quickly put my key into the ignition and backed out of my parking spot.

I was headed towards my friend Logan’s house to go on a bike ride with my fellow friends.
