´╗┐Write a descriptive piece called Darkness. In your writing create an atmosphere of tension and suspense. I was asleep; I remember when I started to feel a sudden chill around me and the surface beneath me. The uncomforting chill made me want to curl up in a ball to save whatever warmth I had left within me. However, for some reason I couldn?t find myself to fulfill the need. My body just lay in a place, put and disobedient. The cold around me grew into a chill and crept through my spine and I woke up with a start. It is dark and my eyes find no source of light that they start to long for more and more with each passing second. I can?t bring myself to remember how I winded up here.

The two people seem to be placing my half conscious self onto a flat wooden surface. The person lets go of my hand they fall right beside me. However I feel a wall on both sides. Have they put me in a box? Do they think I dead? With new presence in my dark room I find a faint voice sobbing. I feel tensed and feel the urge to stop the stranger from sobbing. I can?t see her! I listen to her voice, the sorrow in it and a trickle falls. Cant they see I?m not dead! Her sobs become fainter and I hear her footsteps turn into heavy long strides and feel a lid on top of the box in which I lay. ...read more.
