“Plot, plot” the sounds of spitting rain hitting against the pairs car. The two friends Josh and Kalim, decided to take a bushwalk, as Josh was leaving to another country. It wasn’t the best day to be going for a walk in the bush, but there was no other day since one of the pair were leaving. They both stepped out of the 4 wheel drive and threw on their raincoats and set off on their journey. Josh and Kalim were following the dirt track, which was getting a bit clunky and started to create mud. Both kept walking on, until Kalim slipped in a mud puddle. Kalim was covered in dirty, slimey, smelly mud. He thought it would be a good idea to head back to the car and drive back home. But Josh insisted to carry on their walk. Then the rain really started to pour down on these two, so the both had a little sit down at the park bench to see if it would calm down a little. While they were waiting, Josh and Kalim talked about all their great memories. Josh and Kalim totally forgot about the walk, which they were supposed to be doing. Both had a quick snack of fruit then set back off for their walk. Though the rain didn't settle down, they came across a lot more mud, and a few landslides leading down to the deep treacherous river below. A mist started to grow in the air, they were almost unable to see where they were going. Josh pulled out his torch to see if it would help. It did but not that much. Kalim yelled “HELLO” to see if anyone was around to help them out of the mist. The rain became harsher and harsher, until the rain was hurting their body’s. Kalim started to get worried and asked Josh if they could go back to the car. “Okay” josh said. But as they were walking both Josh and Kalim slipped down the landslide and hit the rocks below, fracturing Kalim’s ankle. Kalim moaned in agony “AAAAH MY FOOT, MY FOOT” “Your gonna be alright Kalim” Josh replied. Knowing they were going to need some help soon, the tide grew higher and the current went harsher and faster. Desperately Josh pulled his phone out of his bag, and rang the emergency services. But his phone only had one bar of signal, and was hard to communicate with the operator. Josh waved his phone around to get a better signal, Kalim moaned even more. “I’m trying to get help Kalim just hang in there” Josh said to him. As night fell, Josh ran out to get some supplies to camp out. He made a tent out of wood, and a tarpaulin he had in his backpack. The sun rised. Josh and Kalim’s family also got worried, and desperately rang emergency services. “Hello what is your emergency?” “Hello my husband and his friend went out on a bushwalk and haven't arrived home yet, please help” Kalim’s wife Debra and the officer kept talking. A helicopter was set out to look for the pair. Lucky Josh had the flairs in his backpack, for when they got lost. The chopper saw a glimpse of the flair, and flew down to a safe area. He called in cops, and an Ambulance to help. Both were helped up from the river, and rushed to hospital. Josh went back to his family, and Kalim set off to America. Josh said to his family “What a way to go bushwalking” Josh and Kalim still keep hold of each other and still share great memories together. One day Josh said he might fly over to America and hang with his best friend again to share some more memories.
