All by My Self

Extracts from this document...


All by My Self The room was cold and dark. Oh so cold. All I could hear was the distant sound of traffic, fast traffic in a slow world. I felt so distant from everything. Isolated. The only light there was came from a pale street lamp. The traffic sounded like it was drifting away, but it was me. I felt so tired because of how cold I was. I heard a small sound of the staircase... someone was coming up. *** It was a beautiful summer morning. The sun shined brightly through my silk pinky curtains. It was only five past eight but I had a great day ahead of me. Paul was coming down to see me at three o'clock and to take me out for a meal somewhere. That meant that I could collect some information for my geography project and at least make a start on it. After all, if I didn't get it finished today, I could always finish it tomorrow. My life seemed so much better then. Finally I was beginning to get-around the fact that my parents were Never going to get back together. They had split the day before my 7th birthday, my mum moved out and thought they would sort it out, but a year and a half later the divorce came through. ...read more.


He was a friend, and besides, terrible things don't happen in places here. Others yes, but not here. That's what my problem was, I always trusted everyone. Ten o'clock came so I went downstairs, out of the back door and headed towards the station. It was a cool clear night and quite pretty with all the stars. One last road to cross, up the stairs and I was there looking round. I couldn't see him, but then I froze and felt a chill down my spine. A man was walking towards me. He was very tall, quite well built and looked strong. His skin was one of the darkest blacks I had ever seen and he was smiling at me. I didn't know who he was, but he knew me. I had been stupid, very stupid. I wanted to run, to scream... to be back home. There were a couple of people around, but I just couldn't move. He was only a metre away and he put his arm around me, perfectly naturally, and led me to his car. My head was spinning around in circles. I was on my own, no one could help me, no one would know where I was. ...read more.


I felt so tired because of how cold I was. I heard a small sound coming from the staircase... someone was coming up. It was him. I woke up at about eight o'clock. I got out of bed and put my clothes on and I was thinking about getting out, but he soon woke up. I decided I would make up an excuse as to why I had to go home, hoping he wouldn't be bothered by it. I told him about my project and said I urgently needed to finish it. He sat up on the bed and said "its ok I'll take you home now that I have done what I wanted to". I thought that what happened through the night was just a nightmare. That nothing had happened apart from my head being messed up. I felt so cheap, so worthless. I was in a trance. I couldn't remember who or where I was. When I was dropped outside my house, I just walked inside, hoping everyone was ok. All I felt inside me was hatred, not for him or my family. For myself. I was stupid, cheap, dirty... and I am nothing anymore. Ever since this happened, I have still felt that hatred of myself. I still feel worthless and empty, but I am starting to re-build my life and I hope to find happiness one day. By Tiffeny Alexandra Hill ...read more.
