Describe a time that someone didn’t tell you the whole truth about something
You should say:
When this happened
What the situation was
Who you were with
And why the person didn’t tell me the whole truth
I want to talk about an occasion that happened in my high school. It was about my little cat Daisy.
I clearly remember it was in the last but one month of my last semester in high school. At that time, I was in my final busy round of preparation for the GAOKAO, which is the college entrance examination in China.
The moment I got home from school one night, my mother told me that our Daisy, a Persian Cat that I have kept since the first year of my junior high school, has been sent to my aunt’s home for a while because she worried that it might affect my studies, and that probably it was about to be back after my GAOKAO.
You know I immediately thought something wasn’t right there because Daisy was very obedient and silent mostly, it didn’t bother me too much while I was studying. But later, my mother’s calm facial expression, while she was knitting the sweater, made my doubt soon disappear. Two months later, after I had taken the exam, my mother hugged me and said that she felt so sorry not to tell the truth about Daisy’s accident. She got lost when she was outing with my mother in the market and couldn’t somehow find it. You know, I was sad to hear about that, but I didn’t blame my mother for this tragedy.
I think the reason why my mother didn’t tell me the truth at the very beginning was that she wanted me to put my whole heart into the preparation for the most significant exam in high school. I felt like the movie’s plot had lived in my real life. But, I do appreciate my mother’s care, without which I wouldn’t be able to make it in the exam.
