A healing during lockdown
It seemed like a normal night of shooting hoops in the driveway. I had been watching this one guy on the internet and wanted to try one of his trick shots. It involved passing the ball through the legs while doing a 180, and finishing the shot backward. I tried and tried but wasn’t able to get the shot down. I went up again to try the layup, but when I came down, my left foot landed awkwardly on the edge of the driveway. I fell to the ground in pain.
Somehow, I managed to haul myself up and hop into the house. The second I got inside, I collapsed on the floor while calling for my parents. With their help, I was able to reach the couch and lie down.
I couldn’t seem to stop feeling frustrated and disappointed.
