What happened then?
The bell rang as our teacher came into the classroom. “I have got some good news for you”, She said with a smile. “We’ll have an autumn outing next week.

Some of us are flying kites, some are chatting and laughing, others are walking and enjoying the beautiful view. Everyone is so happy. The next day when I woke up, I found it was raining outside.

Ending 1 When I came into the classroom, I was surprised to find that my classmates were chatting happily. They told me though it was raining heavily, we could have fun in the classroom.

Ending 2 When I came into the classroom, to my surprise, everyone was holding an umbrella. Our teacher was smiling gently. We decided to walk to a nearer place instead of taking a bus trip.
