From Dusk till Dawn
Have you ever got so bored to the point where you are willing to do anything to entertain yourself, even breaking the rules? My guess is yes, you have, and that is normal because people usually don’t think about the consequences of their actions on themselves and others until something happens. It was the month of February in the small town of Waco, which is known for its famous restaurant named Hunters; they had the best hamburgers and wings in the area, and for that reason people from all parts of Nebraska and the U.S. would come to try their food.
Besides the restaurant, the town didn’t have any other attractions besides the High School that brought people to watch the sports events. I came to Nebraska in the year of 2015 to play sports; coming from a big city of twelve million people, the adaptation to a small town was very rough since the only thing to do there was to go out to eat at Hunters. I went to a Lutheran boarding school, which means that the high school kids live in a dormitory by the school building. As the time went by, I made some pretty good friends, I was never scared of taking risks and neither was my friends, so we decided to do something “fun” one night, my friends and I decided to sneak out of the dorm and climb one of the giant grain bins in town so that we could watch the sunrise.
After days planning ,we finally had a plan, since the dorms windows had mesh screens we had to cut them so that we could sneak out and after a couple minutes of work we cut it and decided to sneak out of the dorm around four in the morning because our tutors would be asleep. The day had come and we were ready. Me, my blonde friend from Texas, Dylan, my South Sudanese friend Jiokow, my Brazilian friend Leo and my other African American friend Jayson jumped out of the window, and we didn’t see a living soul on the street just like we expected and the air was cold and dry like it usually is in the month of February, and there was snow on the ground.
We were trying to be quiet because by our dormitory there’s an old yellow house that has a big dog in it, so we kept on walking slowly so we could remain unnoticed, and after walking for about five minutes in complete silence, we finally got to the big grain bin made of concrete and it was really tall, and I got really scared to climb it at first, but my friends were excited and I was looking forward to see the sunrise. So it was around four-thirty in the morning when we decided to start climbing the grain bin, the only way to get to the top of the grain bin was climbing the fixed ladder on its side that started around eight feet...
