A Moment Of Confusion.

Extracts from this document...


English GCSE Coursework Assignment First Person Narrative A Moment Of Confusion I had never been fond of supermarket shopping. Wondering round aisles with a trolley full of food just wasn't my cup of tea. I hated having to walk around pushing a heavy trolley which I had little control over. However, when I was 7 years of age, the journey to the supermarket seemed like a big adventure. When I got there though, I just became impatient to go home. There was one occasion when I desperately wanted to go home. I was still 7, and my father was trying to persuade me to come shopping with him. When I finally gave in, my brother decided that he wanted to go too. My father didn't like the thought of taking my brother and myself as there was only a year between us and we always end up fighting. He soon realised that either way, someone would be hurt and at this rate it looked like everyone would be angry. ...read more.


I ran about like a headless chicken. I could feel my stomach churning with dread. My mouth became itchy and dry, with a lump forming in the back of my throat as I struggled to find them. My eyes, too, became itchy, and anything but dry. I could feel the tears welling up behind my eyeballs. With every step the place became ten times bigger. I now understood why they called it a supermarket. I could never find them here, ever. I was lost. 'Oh why wasn't I concentrating?!' I kept on thinking.

I was determined not to cry, but I so desperately wanted to. I was frustrated, not only with myself, but also with my father and my brother. 'Where were they?' The question just kept on pestering at my head. ...read more.


They were by the confectionery aisle. Feeling rather overwhelmed, I hugged my father affectionately. My father and brother were confused at this point, but I didn't worry about trivial things like that. "Where did you go? I couldn't find you anywhere!" I said. "We didn't go anywhere..." My father tried to explain. "What?! I thought that you had left me." "We just thought you had gone to look for something. We tried to find you but you were nowhere to be found," he answered. So they hadn't forgotten about me after all! They were even looking for me! I had never felt such happiness, such joy. I was finally safe and sound. I felt that I had grown six feet from my shrunken state. All anger that I had ever felt, just suddenly flushed out of my system. For some reason I could feel my throat drying up again, with the lump too, and the tears forming behind my eyeballs, but I wasn't afraid or anxious this time. I was happy. I felt kind of numb from all the relief. I was going to be all right. SHIVANI PATEL ENGLISH ESSAY 1 ...read more.
