A lapse in time.

Extracts from this document...


A lapse in time The Cold draught swished close around my neck, it was although a thousand voices were swarming me ears. As I approached the derelict house the wind grew stronger and as it seemed, so did the voices. I stopped dead outside the front of the house when I lost all hearing of the wind, and everything fell silent it was like a blanket suffocating every part of me, and the strangest thing was that although there was trees there was no birds chirping away. No sound at all it was a deadly silence. As I moved slightly closer to the entrance, the leaves below which were all dried up and all that was left was the skeleton.

The dark, unsafe swing was swinging in the frosty wind and smell of the ground become old and musty. I jumped straight up to see the old dilapidated house once again.
