I felt so bad

First let me say that over the past couple of week I have had a writers block and haven't really been able to think of things to write, well not that I have nothing to write, it was just I didn't really know how to write about it.

So today I am attempting to break out of my writers block and come out all guns blazing as the saying goes.

OOOOOOOk here goes.

As my title says I felt really bad the other day, I go to church as often as I can and the Elders always make me feel so welcome and I have become real good friends with them both so I suggested we go play football some time, I thought they could be more them selves and have some fun at the same time.

So we went to a local park, I took my Wilson NFL ball and the Elders brought their soccer ball. We started with playing some American Football we stood in a triangle and threw the ball to each other, every thing was going well.

We switched to the soccer ball. I have never been to good at soccer. you could say m aim when I kick the ball is not to good. I decided to make a net and I went as the goal keeper first and the rules was that the Elders would play and the first to score a go in as goal keeper so they could rest.

Elder Surban scored a goal so he became the goal keeper and I went out on the pitch with Elder Deberry.

Elder Surban kicked the ball on to the pitch and I got the ball I ran up to elder Deberry with the ball and made a excellent move I kicked the ball straight through his legs and shot at goal but elder Surban stoped the goal. he kicked the ball back on to the pitch and I ran and collected the ball and started back towards goal.

between me and the goal stood Elder Deberry. after moving so well last time I figured I could easily get past him again. but wait surly it would be more of a surprise if I shot for goal from where I was which was the middle of the pitch, Elder Deberry was stood about ten yards directly in front of me.

I aw a opening to the right of him just enough for me to boot the ball as hard as I could and possibly score a goal. I pulled my leg back and kicked the ball as hard as I could. I sent the ball hurtling.

but as soon as the ball left my foot I saw it's trajectory. To my horror it flew and hit Elder Deberry straight in the face, sending his head back and making him yell out in pain.
I instantly felt the worst guilt come over me. I ran up to him to see if he was ok, he was holding his nose.

after a minute he let go of his nose and I asked him if he was ok, he said yeah I'm fine. I apologised and said how bad I felt and he said "that's ok I know you didn't mean to".

I was so happy he was ok and later that evening the Elders came by my house and we all shared a pizza.

Oh at least the night turned out okay.

I just recently had a futbol related injury myself. I'm sure they knew it was an accident, but I understand how you must have felt. by now its probably just water under the bridge.

Glad to see you break your writers block. I am sure you feel bad now, but that will be a funny story to tell in the future, right? :)

Baby you're so sweet you'd never hurt anyone on purpose. Accidents happen, especially in football! I love you.
