My First Childhood Sport

My childhood was fun although it was short lived as my parents got separated. I have two siblings so we always played together as our dad doesn't allow us to go outside to play with other kids until one day when he had to travel without us so he left us with his neighbor. 

We met our neighbor's kids and one of them introduced a game to us so we could have fun together. My siblings and I didn't know about the game so he taught us how to play it. 

The game was hide and seek.

Hide and seek is a game where all players except one goes hiding for the other to search for them and the first person found will be the next to find the hidden players. 

Even though it was our first time to play the game, my siblings and I knew how to hide very well so we were never found until the game is called over. We had so much fun until my dad returned and asked us to go inside the house. The next day, my dad traveled and we started the game again but that was the day I hated hide and seek game, why? 

We all went hiding but the person chosen to find us gave up in finding us but didn't let us know. We waited for some minutes then came out of our hiding place but I couldn't find my younger sister, she had refused to come out and I didn't know where she hid herself.

My dad came back earlier than before so he found out about my missing sister, he was so angry at me but decided to find her first before he could do anything to me. We searched for her for up to 30 minutes but couldn't find her then she came out and told us she fell asleep in her hiding place. 

We were so relieved and my dad warned us never to play the game again. That was how I stopped playing that game till date. 

Then I fell in love with tennis ball game but I wasn't good at it so I only watch those playing it and I had fun just from watching.

I am not the sport type as my dad didn't let us but I am good at indoor games very well even though I learnt that when I got older so I won't be talking about it here.

Wow. Hide and seek, boju-boju as we popularly called it, was a known game for kids. 

We played this game at any slight opportunity. 

A would go into hiding while one will make the search. Anyone found first from his/ hiding place will be the one to search next.

Interesting during the good old days.
