A Glimmering Sunset.

Extracts from this document...


A Glimmering Sunset By Natalie Cooley- 9F 'Are we there yet?' shrieked the hyperactive seven year old boy known to most people as Richard. 'Be quiet!' replied the stroppy teenager called Melissa. 'Don't be mean to your brother Melissa,' came the big booming voice that belonged to Adam, Melissa and Richard's dad. Melissa just turned round and sulked. 'Not in this life' she said under her breath. The plane soon came to a perfect landing in a sunny, tropical atmosphere. The whole family, except for Melissa, seemed to smile with delight as they exited the airport in Spain. A yellow taxi was waiting outside the hotel. It quickly took the small family to a posh hotel in the middle of Barcelona. Even the pessimistic Melissa couldn't fault the perfect hotel. It had green marble floors that you could see your reflection in, it had mirrors on the ceiling and, best of all, it had a stunning waterfall running down through all the floors until it crashed down in the lobby making the floors and ceiling look even more reflective. ...read more.


Gina spent most of the day in the sea but Melissa just lay on the sun bed working on her tan and watching life fly past her. Later on, after lunch, a boy about the same age as Melissa introduced himself. 'Hi, I'm Sean' said the tall, dark- haired, tanned boy. Melissa introduced herself before grabbing her beach bag and walking of to the beach caf´┐Ż with the boy. The two started talking. They both began to feel like they had known each other forever. They made arrangements to meet up with each other the very next night. Melissa felt like she was on cloud ten. That was until a downpour a bad luck unexpectedly soaked her.

Then she could feel and hear nothing. Poor Melissa was lying unconscious by a tree. Melissa woke several hours later with a numb feeling throughout her whole body. Her head was throbbing like her petrified heart. 'What's going on?' asked Melissa as a nurse came over to check on Melissa in the hospital. The foreign nurse motioned to her parents to come over from sitting on some uncomfortable green chairs the other side of the ward. 'You fell from the cable car' sobbed Gina. 'I'm sorry. I've been so selfish and horrible to all of you. Please forgive me.' Said Melissa just before she was smothered with hugs and kisses from her adoring family. 'You are lucky you are alive. Do you know how worried we have all been?' said Adam before sighing with relief. On the last night of their two-week holiday to Spain the family sat in the warm evening air at the beach, watching the beautiful sunset reflecting in the glimmering water. The lovely rays of pink, gold and orange were shining over the smiles of content from Adam, Gina, Melissa and Richard. Gina looked around at her family and knew that this was a holiday that wouldn't be forgotten in a hurry. ...read more.
