'Call yourself a mate'

Extracts from this document...


Connor witherington 10 t 'Call yourself a mate' Have you ever had that feeling that you are being followed? But you turn around and there's no one there. Sadly this wasn't the case for me! It was late evening, muggy, dull, dim, light and an eerie quiet atmosphere. We'd had a football match that night which I'd forgotten about until my manager phoned me up to check I was playing and to arrange to give me a lift as my mum was still at work. I played quite well, considering I was tired and hadn't been prepared to play. The kick off was at 5:45 so by the time I'd finished and warmed down it was around quarter past 8.

I Started to sprint as the fast as I could, but as I speeded up the steps were did and seemed to get closer, I daren't turn around. I could see it! My house MY HOUSE thank god I ran and leaped over my gate, the dog followed. I was just had about to shut my door and then I heard Steve's voice bellow 'I enjoyed the run see ya tomorrow!' When I see him tomorrow I'm gunna kill him! I now had a new dog, I decided to call him Goldie as he had a golden coloured coat, I managed to convince my mum to keep him after extreme begging.
