My Worst Experience

One day at school i was very disapointed.I was just a new comer by then i was in form two,i had so many friends because i liked being social.To me every thot hat i was humble and honest person.So one day i saw my friend slashing in the fields. She was a really good friend of mine so i decided to to go and know what was happening.She told me that she had been happening.She told me that she had been given a punishment by the teachers,since she was my friend i decided to help her do the punishment,though i knew it wasn't allowed. A few minutes later the teachers who had given her the punishment came to check if she had finished.By suprise she got me doing the work.He was very furious and ended up slapping me. He became my worst teacher in that school,because to me i thought i was doing the right thing but to be sincere it wasn't.I felt it since my friend was added another punishment.
