This specific game of hide-and-seek was in 2011. I wrote this exactly a year later (about seven months ago). With the exams coming up again, I was reminded of this when we had two free periods today. I searched for this and thought maybe I should share it.
P.S: Avoid running around school if you during school hours if you’re to avoid trouble.

I’d never forget the day we ran around the unexplored school trying to find a place to hide when we were lost ourselves. Almost a year after we had come to the new building we still couldn’t figure out the many hidden paths it held. And here we were trying to play hide and seek when we didn’t know where to hide and where to seek. It just made the game more enjoyable. The seekers were two girls and two boys and the rest of our class hid. I was one of those who sought and it was quite enjoyable spontaneously bumping into one of those people hiding, both lost, both confused. That day, we had no pressure on us, no one stop us, no one say we couldn’t do it. With the exams a few weeks away and having two periods free after so long we had all planned to hide ourselves rather than hide our bags. The rules were that no one could hide in the washrooms. Besides that we all knew we shouldn’t get caught to any one of the teachers. Our center was good because we were crouching beneath the walls of the library and people hardly visit the library, so we were almost free. We were aware of the fact that the librarian would keep an eye on us and so we were a little extra careful. What we were certain about was that the two periods we were free: geography and English, the teachers would not come. One was absent, the other was in a meeting. The odds were in our favor so we started running around the building. We split up to search and my friend and I ended up going to the wrong place. We didn’t know how we got there but when we did we were lost. We were in the primary building and had no clue as to how we could go out of there. Looking at the wrist watch, I realised that the time for two periods was over and we were supposed to have French. Again, miraculously, we found a way out when we didn’t know how. Sweat pouring down our cheeks and panting we rand to the French room. All our friends were only arriving and our French sir looked at us suspiciously. He didn’t ask us but I presume he figured out. We took a lot of risks that day but what if we hadn’t? We  would have just stood for two periods speaking of the same things we’ve been speaking for so long: the upcoming exams… I think, right now, what exactly we need when we have the free periods in school is to take some risks. All we do now is sit and speak about exams, revising and the same thing on repeat. The most interesting our conversations can get now is the content of our subjects. I wouldn’t want to look back and realise how boring our lives have been – how about another game of hide and seek?
