Billy wandered down the empty streets of Sheffield.

Extracts from this document...


Billy wandered down the empty streets of Sheffield. The orange glow of the city lights reflected off the wet road. He could vaguely see the North Star as he looked up to the night sky. There was a slow hum of a pizza delivery moped as it traveled up the road. He turned into a dark ally. There was a crate of empty beer bottles on one side with a few soggy cardboard boxes next to it. He sat down opposite them. Billy started to think. He remembered why he had left home and searched for his father. He remembered Kes; the way she glided through the air and suddenly darted down to catch the lure. As he was thinking he slowly drifted away into a dream. Whack! A sharp pain traveled up Billy's arm. He could see a blurred figure standing before him through his sleepy eyes. "Gior, who wa that?" As his eyes came into focus he saw a policeman standing in front of him. ...read more.


The policeman opened the door of his patrol car and singled for Billy to get in. "Come on lad what are you waiting for?" he asked. "Nothing it just seems weird stepping into a police car without being in trouble" replied Billy. The policeman gave Billy a funny look as he stepped in the car and shut the door behind him. They drove off down the busy streets and out of the city. It was a good hour before they pulled up to a small house at the end of a cul-de-sac.

"Go on then, ring the doorbell," he added. Billy raised his hand and placed one grubby finger on the button. He took a deep breath and pressed it down. He stepped back. The door slowly opened. ...read more.


When he got there he stopper. This is my real home, he thought to himself; I live on the streets! The skies slowly darkened and it started to rain. Still crying Billy sat down on the edge of the pavement. A steady flow of water trickled past his feet and into the gutter. A torn newspaper was blown by the wind as it stuck to his shoe. He ripped it of and stamped on it. A roll of thunder made Billy look up at the sky. As he did so he saw a man standing in front of him. It was the policeman! "Come on lad lets get you out of the rain, I've got a spare room in my house. If you do some jobs that'll pay for your rent," He said. "Do you want to give it a chance? After thinking about it for a while Billy nodded. "Thanks for giving me a second chance," said Billy "No problem," said the policeman. He helped Billy up and the two of them made their way back to the patrol car. ...read more.
