One day my mum said to me, “Wake up you have to take your nan some food parcels because she has run out.” So I jumped out of bed and went downstairs to have my breakfast. After breakfast I collected my bag, shoved the parcel in and rode to my nan's.

On the way to my nan's I came across someone who was in a grey uniform… Without thinking I went on the other side of the road where he was cycling because we had to ride the opposite side than normal.

Then BANG we collided together… Shouting in German the intimidating soldier was reaching for his gun that was strapped to his belt. Without hesitation I got up and ran as fast as I could, I didn’t look back. I had to run to take cover behind a wall.

Looking at him from behind the wall, he had a pin in his hand - pop. He had popped the tyres of my bike, he got up and rode off. I ran to my bike, in my bag I had some wheels so I fitted them onto my bike. I ride to my nan's house as quick as I could. I made it. Closing the door then locking it behind me.

Here is the parcel nan, it has all the food you need. I told her all about my journey. She called in my pop. “Can you ride home with him because Simeon is in a bit of shock?”

So we rode home together, riding on the right side of the road. We didn't come across any Germans on the way. I had a safe journey then I told my mum what had happened. From then on I have never ridden on my own, I either ride with my mum or pop.
