We stood up and excitedly walked over to bows that were lying on the cobblestones silently waiting for us. We all picked the bows up at the same time. It was like we were in a race to see who would fire first.
With the arrows notched onto the bowstring we placed our fingers around the knot. One finger above the knot and two fingers below. Like everyone else we lifted our bows and pulled the string towards our faces. You could hear the ting on the string as the arrow launched itself towards the target.
“Pop!” We couldn't believe our eyes. Both balloons popped at the same time we felt so proud when everybody clapped and cheered.
Both of us had smiles on our faces as we picked up our arrows. Lucky only we know not all our arrows hit the target.
Today me and Josh wrote a recount about when the balloon popped. It's about how me and Josh stood up and walked over to bows that were lying down on the ground then put one finger above the knot and two fingers below. Like everyone else we lifted the bow only me and Josh got the balloon on the taggert at the same time!
