A Description of a Lonely Place

Extracts from this document...


Saniyya Abrahams 11 Wilson Original Writing Coursework A Description of a Lonely Place Here I am in the car on the way to my cousin's house. I am all alone as I drive along a narrow country road. It is my first visit because she has just recently moved there. The journey is really freaky and petrifying because it is nighttime and the only thing that gives out light is my headlights. As I am driving I can only see straight in front of me. I am surrounded by huge trees, which look like zombies that are about to grab me. Thankfully I am nearly there. I only have a few miles to go before this journey of horror ends. As I approach the house, I become frantic with uncertainty because I hope I am in the right place as I have followed the directions my cousin has given me. I am now also unsure as to whether I have the right date and that my cousin is expecting me. I am thinking of using my mobile phone to call my cousin, but then I change my mind. ...read more.


The frozen ice cracked and formed a spider's web around her. The ice started breaking up into large fragments and she was sucked into the icy depths of the lake. I panicked. I realised I could not do anything to help her. She had disappeared, as I could no longer see her. I was calling for help and I was calling her name at the same time but she was not responding. I knew it was too late to save her. It occurred to me that this was such a tragic moment and the memory of that awful night still made me shiver. I was crying my eyes out because every time I close my eyes I see the happy, smiley face, I used to know. I am missing her and I wish I were not playing with her outside that night. The image of the innocent little girl whom I am thinking of right now was one that I would never forget. The following evening after dinner I go to my room hoping to have an early night. As I walk along the corridor, it seems totally empty because the walls are bare and there are plain, wooden floors. ...read more.


My cousin let out a blood- curdling scream at the sight of her own reflection. I scream with fright, not knowing the reason why. Maybe she saw a ghost; I look around to see if there is anything. I am so terrified. I do not know what to do and where to go. I see a door of one of the innumerable rooms I think of going in there, to try and escape my fear, but even though I want to go in there I am scared because I might just frighten myself more than I already have. My cousin and I decide to go back downstairs. We are still shocked by then event that has just occurred. We walk downstairs slowly as if we are zombies. I want to go to my bedroom and get a good nights rest, but I wonder if I will be able to sleep, as I am so scared after tonight's happening. Now, I realise that there is nothing in this house to be scared it is only my imagination that is playing havoc with my mind. I sit down and enjoy a relaxing cup of tea. I am so glad I will be going home tomorrow, as it will be the end of a nightmare. 2 1 ...read more.
