A tall, thin looking girl emerged at the top of the stairway

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Short Story A tall, thin looking girl emerged at the top of the stairway. She had a face as pale as milk with a scruffy mop of long curly ginger hair flowing down around it. She had a look of deep sadness on her face but still seemed to have a warm essence about her. Samantha ambled slowly down the dusty stairway humming to herself along the way. She was one of those people who was always stringing words together to make tunes, this was her one escape from reality, well that and long walks along the quarry side on Thursday afternoons. She moved slowly and gracefully through the hallway and into the dinning room. "Samantha Jane Smith, you're late again! Well what have you got to say for yourself?" "I'm really sorry Mrs Longhurst" "Is that it" This was said quietly and almost in a gentle, caring way by Mrs Longhurst, "Well child can you not even come up with a decent excuse?" Her voice turned to evil, pure evil. She shouted so loudly that the pigeons were disturbed in Trafalgar. Tears formed in Samantha's eyes as she hung her head and tried desperately not to make eye contact with anyone in the room. ...read more.

She struck a match which was instantly extinguished by a blast of cold air which had come through the open window. Samantha spun round, her skin on the floor and her head touching the roof. She was not alone, heavy breathing could be heard from the far end of the room. Samantha squinted into the dark - nothing could be seen. She backed herself into a corner and shook with fear as footsteps drew ever closer. Samantha closed her eyes and....... Samantha had been put in Heinshore because her parents were killed in a tragic car accident while on the way to pick her up from a friends party. She had always blamed herself for this and never let herself forget. She had no other relatives, her grand parents had died in a plane crash and both her mum and dad were only children. Samantha was still struggling to come to terms with this and the endless mental torture did not help to say the least. In fact if Samantha was ever to see a doctor, he would probably refer her to a shrink, who would describe her condition as "mentally unstable. A girl who longs to be loved but can't forgive herself or forget about her parents death. ...read more.

Conclusion

Samantha Jane Smith Samantha folded the paper, laid it to rest on her pillow, closed the door and began the long walk to her desired destination. She walked almost like a zombie, no expression on her face. Just a march like walk with a fixed blank look. "Samantha, where do you think you are going?". She turned slowly, raised her head and smiled "it's Thursday Mrs Longhurst, I'm going for a walk" "If those toilets aren't clean" "oh they are". She turned and walked on, not even taking a glance back. Yesterday evening at 4.30 a young teenager committed suicide. Leaping to her death down a 400 foot abandoned quarry. The girl has not yet been named nor the body recovered. The chief of police said in a statement earlier this evening that there will be a full investigation into the well being of the children at Heinshore, and assured the public that they would not let this case go. A tall, thin looking girl emerged at the top of the stairway. She had a face as pale as milk with a scruffy mop of long curly ginger hair flowing down around it. She had a look of great joy and satisfaction on her face as she walked slowly and gracefully on to the train. ...read more.
