Playing on the Stairs
Jordan and Brad were running along the common corridor outside their house. They pulled and tugged at each other. When they reached the top of the stairs, Jordan told Brad that he would race him down the stairs.
Jordan had taken one step down when Brad leapt down three steps and overtook him. Jordan tried to pull him back and accused him of cheating. Then, two boys began quarrelling at the top of the stairs. In the heat of the argument, Brad accidentally pushed Jordan down the stairs. Jordan lost his footing and tumbled all the way down the stairs, landing in a heap at the bottom. Brad stared at him in horror. He rushed down to check on his brother. Jordan sat up clutching his left leg in agony. Brad was too afraid to move him. He told Jordan to stay where he was while he went to get help.
Their parents rushed to the bottom of the stairs when Brad told them what had happened. Their father carried Jordan downstairs while their mother called for an ambulance. Brad was pale with fright when he saw how badly injured his brother was. He prayed that Jordan would be all right.
