ENGLISH 23RD JULY 08 NARRATIVE ESSAY M.LOCKYER Tom left the school for the last time. He departed the school campus towards the setting sun on his Honda CBR 1000RR Fireblade motorcycle. Tom had never been a fan of cars and his 1000cc, 175bhp engine could out pace most cars anyway. Tom thought about the promising future that lay ahead of him, his dream was becoming a reality, he had been offered a full scholarship to study law at Harvard University. Tom had never been happier.
