Nanna, James, Peta and me went to the plaza (this is in Adelaide btw) and had soem dinner and saw a movie, Golden Compass, was good.
Then we went to catch the O-Bahn (which is like a but that goes on tracks I think) into the city to see fireworks and when we got on the bus, drunk people were already on the back of the bus and they were just yelling and stuff.
THEN they started getting worse, and a fight broke out. Between some girls at first and then boys jumped in and it was two guys. A black guy jumped in to break it up, and he ended up getting bashed, they were kicking his head in, and the bus can't stop because it is on tracks or something.
People were screaming to stop and girls were biting the guys to break it up and everyone was watching, the black guy threw his bag to us and then there was a dagger on the ground at my feet, in it's case.
The fight was getting worse, another guy pulled a bigger knife and a lady just yells out 'HE'S GOT A KNIFE, AND IT'S A BLOODY BIG ONE' and runs up the bus, coz they were coming closer to us and the front end of the bus. She knocked me into Nanna and Peta's seat, and James was already up the other end. James ended up with blood on his shirt and shorts, from the innocent guy's nose and/or mouth.
When the O-Bahn could stop, it did and the driver had already rung police, but it took a while for them to come.
We all ran off the bus and I ran into a front yard, where luckily people were having a party around the back, and told us to get round the back.
One of the guys jumped over a car, and the girls semi-restrained them, but I was in some people's party so I didn't see much of what happened until the police came.
They got all the girls in the divi-van, and they were trying to bash their way out ^_^.
The guys were caught too, and we were all just shocked and stuff. One guy got his hand slit by the knife that was pulled, but it wasn't serious. The black guy mostly was the one hurt.
Nanna's foot and hand are bruised too, from the lady running up the bus.
The people who's party we went into, gave us drinks and were really nice, and uncle Derek came and picked us up, we came home and watched the fireworks on telly.
It was pretty much terrifying, and I would just like to add,
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
It isn't a bad start to 2008, it's a bad end to a bad enough '07 C:
