Introduction

CREATIVE PIECE: Based on the storyline of 'Of Mice and Men', write an alternative ending to the story HISHAM HASAN, Y9-2 'OF MICE AND MEN' COURSEWORK 25th February 2002 CREATIVE PIECE: Based on the storyline of 'Of Mice and Men', write an alternative ending to the story A mid-size rabbit came out of the brush, and it made a small gesture with its paws and it shook its ears and crinkled its nose. Candy quietly appeared as the rabbit settled beside Lennie. He numbly sat down on the ground, just where Lennie lay. Nobody noticed, not even George. The mice were squeaking and a water snake popped out of the green pool and surveyed the three men in the brush. The mountaintops seemed rosy and full.

Lennie was too busy to hear him. Then George said to Lennie, "Guys like us have no fambly. They make a little stake an' they blow it in. They ain't got nobody in the world that gives a hoot in hell about 'em-----------' Lennie spoke up 'George, but not us, you bet!' Lennie begged, 'George, le's do it now. Le's get that place now.'

Conclusion

Then he slowly retired and sobbed, 'Poor bastard'. He went close to Lennie and then whispered: 'You got your dream Lennie, don't never be sad.' Then he started sobbing, 'You never deserved it.' The mice were shooting at top speed and the water snake in the green pool surveyed the three people in the brush. The mountaintops seemed to have contracted from what were a few minutes back. The Sunday afternoon baked the sycamores and the air scented heavy and waved restlessly. A wild cat clambered onto a dead mouse on the river, stared at it and then stroked it for a while and then turned its head, left the mouse and was out of sight. Everything seemed to be out order. 'George, listen George," Candy once again called, 'I want to tell you something that once happened to me.' ...read more.
