I see that security grads have guns pointed to the animal. I scream out ”don’t shoot” but its too late. the lion slowly collapses to the ground and i fall on my knees in shock of what i had just seen. Later that day i had found out that the gun shot was just a stun and the lion was ok.

I wake up as if its a normal day but then look at my calendar and remember that its family photo day. I hate photos so much, I hate the fact you have to smile because i am horrible at it. I get dressed and we make our way to the photo place. My little sister hates photos too by my parents insist on doing it. As we get there i see cameras all over the place and it makes me unsettled. We got in a ground and smiled but as the flash went off I blinked. Years later i look back at the photo and everyone laughs at me.
