Last Sunday, with my girlfriend’s accompany, I went to downtown. That was a beautiful day- it was very sunny and with cool breeze, which really brought us a sense of spring. For even it is April now, here in Wuhu, we can not feel it is spring at all. Continuously, it rained and rained, which made it very cold. Some of us still wore thick coat and sweater, gloves and scarf. In a city with so changeable weather, many people went out in that rare sunny day.
In the square of downtown, I found many people were strolling, chatting and playing. While, some of the kites flied in the sky did catch my eyes, which brought my memory to my childhood. Seeing these kites, my girlfriend also wanted to have a try. So we went to buy it. However, the high price made us give up the idea, and we decided to buy it near our school and fly it next time. With a little pity, we came back.
Today, it was just as sunny as last Sunday, and we decided to fulfill our dream of flying kite. We bought a cheap kite and went to the square in the downtown. Even the sun made us feel a little hot, but we still felt excited. When we got there, there were already a lot of people there. I decided to fly it first, I held the string and run, I was excited to find the kite fly, but it was unsteady at all. It sometimes flied this way, and sometimes that way, and finally, within seconds, it dropped onto the floor. I tried several times, but it made no difference. Then my girlfriend flied it, she did better than me but she still couldn’t fly it long. I summarized the reason of the failure. It was partly because the wind was too slow, and partly because we have no skill in flying it.
Things we watched so beautiful when we experienced ourselves, is not that beautiful. We try our best to fly the kite high, and we wait for the good wind to fly it, but none of them was realized. We’ve played the whole afternoon, and we both felt very tired, but we still didn’t have the real feeling of “flying kite” as we felt in our childhood. To be frank, we both got a little bit disappointed. As a result, we decided to try again next time.
