The best concert ever!

Daniel dragged himself home after a long night. His big toe hurt terribly. His thumb throbbed with pain and his little finger nail was torn. There was also a mysterious bruise on his neck. Where had it come from …?

The concert was amazing! By the second song, the crowd had already began to spring wildly back and forth. Leo got a little bit carried away and stomped on Daniel’s foot. Then Daniel rolled his ankle and almost fell. Luckily, it didn’t hurt too badly and besides, the music was awesome!

During his favourite song, the girl standing next to him pointed upwards with her finger and Daniel lifted her up on to his shoulders so she could see the band. After the song was over, she thanked him with a kiss on the cheek. Daniel swooned.

The crowd were becoming more energetic and the music better and better. Suddenly, Daniel was hoisted up on to the hands of the mosh pit and he crowd surfed down to the front of the stage. Unbelievable! He had some bruises on his calf and he grazed his elbow when he fell to the ground. But who cares, not Daniel!

At the end of the night everything ached and Daniel was exhausted. He didn’t mind the pain because it was the best concert he’d ever been to. All he wanted to do now was go home and sleep.
