Competitive Teenage Voluntary Work (100 word version)

At weekends, to give the illusion of being nice, we took elderly gentlemen out in their wheelchairs. We usually took them to the park.  They liked that.

But after a few weeks it all got a bit samey so, to liven things up, I suggested racing.

After the count of three we pushed them around the park at breakneck speed. I was well ahead before misjudging a curb, sending mine flying through the air. I’d killed him!  I just knew it!

“You okay?” I gasped. “Shall I get an ambulance?”

“Get me up!” he shouted. “Quick!  We’re going to lose!”
