She was only young
Perhaps 6 or 7 years old, she ran from the sweety shop a year younger than me perhaps a year older it was so long ago. The car struck her and that was it.

A year later it was the summer holidays and I was staying at my Grans. Under strict instructions not to leave the street,

Why ? I was delivered home at the age of 3 after helping myself from the Woolies pix and mix. I don't think my family trusted me.

8 year old, stay in the street not a chance, off to the boating pond. Then it was time to go home, did she take me did I follow her it was so long ago, she was a friends older sister perhaps 10 or 11 or 12. She lived in the next street.

I gave her some lip she went for me, I ran from her; it happened so fast so quick, they got out the car. I was okay time to run I was fine, run run.

My mother only found out about it years later when I was in my 20's she cried when she asked me about it. How she found out I have no idea. She wouldn't say. Mothers !

It was only 100m from the sweety shop. I still dream about that shop and the lass.

not just language
they've cocked up on grammar as well. I always thought the Dutch spoke really good English? As in, closer to proper English AND with a wider vocabulary than the average slang on a council estate...

I like the style. Its not bad. It conjures up the time quite nicely. Well done OP.

sounds like it was some time ago....
..so perhaps its time to let it go? *hug*

also, those decrying your English had best be superb German speakers!

I don't get what happened? Did you get hit by a car?

He was hit by a boat next to the Pick and Mix in Woolworths, I think.

That's what I understood

past Eve and Adam's, from swerve of shore to bend of bay, brings us by a commodius vicus of recirculation back to Gran's house and boating pond.

Makes about as much sense, too.
