A few hours north of London, the dark-grey sky, rising above ; It was a cold and cheerless evening

Extracts from this document...


A few minutes north of London, the dark-grey sky, rising above bbuildings ; tall and thin. One end of the city is filled with people, lights, clubs and pubs. The other side of the city is quite and dark. The fog seems to linger over the street, clutching the buildings, the streetlamps, the entire city, in a damp, icy grip. You can tell that winter is on its way. The buildings are camouflaged by the dark sky, shadowing the streets. The dark alleys, the big shops, the traffic jams, are all part of the jungle called St Johns Wood. The naked trees move, fiercely, with the strong wind. The city was lifeless.

He fled past the gate, past the flower gardens, over the bridge, stepping into many puddles but he didn't care if it ruined his 250 pound shoes. Then he stopped. Gasping for breath he moved slowly of what he was sure of. He moved past the bush and sat next to her. He took of her hands and looked into her eyes with his sincere blue eyes, his light brown hair fell on his forehead. Gripping her hands tightly and rubbing her tears with his thumb, moving her more closely to him. "Im sorry!" he explained. Jamelia tried hard not to look at him.
