Model Answer 1:
I was riding a bicycle on a small street inside my apartment block and some other boys were also playing on that street too. They suddenly stopped playing when a car was entering the apartment block compound but I did not notice the car. There was a head-on collision with the car and my bicycle. I had fallen on the ground. Luckily it was a minor accident and I did not get seriously wounded in this event. But there were some minor injuries that I could not avoid at all. This is a great cue card task for me and I am going to describe the event in brief here.

I was riding the bicycle on my own and it was entirely my fault that I did not notice the car when it was entering the compound. Using loud horns inside the apartment compound is banned and so the car driver could not use that. Suddenly I saw that a car stopped before me and I fell on the ground from the bicycle. I suffered a few minor injuries to my feet and elbow. I received minor injuries in those places.

It took around one week for me to recover the injuries. My mom took me to a local doctor and the doctor prescribed a complete rest for three or four days. The doctor also prescribed few medications so that the wounds heal speedily. In this time, I was laid in bed and passed some boring moments.

It was a pathetic event for me and the accident was entirely my fault. The injuries were less severe than the boredom. But my mom spent some quality moments with me at this time. My dad was also worried. And thus, I felt lucky that they loved me so much.
