Write a story that ends with : " ... it was the most embarrassing moment in my life."
 
I felt the heat of the morning sun on my still-closed eyelids. Annoyed, I rolled to the other side to get out of the way of the strong rays. I yawned and stretched, wondering why it was so bright. It is normally quite dark when I get up for school. I forced open my eyes to look at the little, round alarm clock on my bedside table ... and screeched in alarm!

Bounding out of my bed, I swung open the wardrobe door to take out my school uniform, which I threw on the bed. Then, I dashed to the bathroom. But halfway, I stopped, deciding not to brush my teeth. I grabbed my school bag and ran downstairs. Soon, I had shoved my feet into my shoes and pounced onto my bicycle. My parents stood motionless, staring at me as I whizzed past. As I had had no time to comb my hair, I ran my fingers through it, making it look as tidy as possible.

As my bicycle raced down the road to school, I noticed a group of schoolgirls looking at me with great interest. Oh boy! I must still be looking attractive even with uncombed hair. My heart pounding furiously in my chest, I shot past a few cars on the road. In all the confusion and haste, I managed to notice the drivers staring in disbelief at me. They were probably incredulous that one could pedal so swiftly. Soon, I reached the school gate, which the security guard was about to close.

Without bothering to explain myself to the two priggish prefects on gate duty, I hopped off my bike. Locking my precious iron steed at the bicycle parking lot, I sprinted to the school hall. As I burst into the hall, I slowed down to turn left to go to the back of my class, where I took my place behind my classmates. I released my breath - the assembly had not started yet. But just as I was congratulating myself, I realized that I was the centre of attraction. It did not matter much to me at the moment for I was used to being looked at. However, to say the least, I was a little surprised when everyone stopped staring blankly at me and started to giggle. Suddenly, the whole hall was reverberating with loud laughter. Everyone was laughing, pointing or looking at me. Some teachers were smiling while others were trying to control the situation. Smiling at my audience, I took a bow, though at the back of my mind, I was wondering what was so amusing.

As I took my bow, I noticed -that the bottom half of my trousers were not olive-green but had blue and white stripes. My line of vision moved upwards, revealing that the rest of my trousers were also the wrong color - and so was my shirt. In profound shock, it took me some time to figure it out. "Sammy! Why on earth are you in pyjamas?" my friend, who was standing beside me, blurted out amidst the bellows of laughter. Tears were streaming down his cheeks, not from sadness, but from hilarity, I realized in chagrin.

A feeling of sheer horror swept through my entire body. My mouth opened in a silent `0' for a few long seconds. I stood there in shock and embarrassment. No wonder Dad and Mum had looked nonplussed as I was streaking past them. No wonder everyone in the hall was laughing. I had stupidly thought that it was my riding skills that had fascinated people on the street and my handsome face that had made the girls stare at me. I felt darkness slowly starting to engulf me.

I awoke with lights playing on my eyelids. A group of people, including some boys in the Red Crescent uniform, were peering down at me, grinning quite lunatically at me. My teacher was also there. He patted me on my back, saying with a wicked wink, "You must have been in a real hurry, eh? Never mind, your parents will be here soon with your school uniform."

I must have looked like a beetroot. But one thing was clear - it was the most embarrassing moment in my life.
