Swimming with a Rhino

I was in a swimming competition with another competitor, only the rules were to swim using only one arm. It was pretty difficult and I could feel the muscles in my arm throbbing in pain. Despite this, I was determined to win. Crowds of people kept getting in my way and I grew more and more frustrated. So frustrated I ended up kicking them as I passed by. Oops! I can't remember if I won or not and, before I knew it, I was in a completely different swimming pool which was in someone's garden and there were loads of pretty outdoor lights. I was swimming with this gigantic rhino and it was the most amazing experience. He was lovely; so gentle and sweet (rather than one of the most dangerous animals as they are often referred to!) I was swimming lengths with him and riding on his back. I made a friend for life. 🦏 Next scene; I was in school when these two mum's came up to me and asked if they could have a word with me. I agreed, and they started laying into me about how my son had been bullying a boy called Rowan (my sons best friend!) I knew he wouldn't do that, so I immediately started defending him, but they kept talking over me and I was left feeling frustrated. I then tried to talk to the teacher, but she was busy singing silly songs to the children in this strange voice. I also tried to talk to the teaching assistant but, likewise, she was also distracted by other things. It was like banging my head against the wall. "Maxi is a gentle, sensitive little soul' I shouted, realising that he was taking another kid out as I did so. "Hmm, this doesn't look good!" I thought. What happened to my lovely boy?
