Creative Writing- An Unforgettable Night

Extracts from this document...


An Unforgettable Night By Ruth Chong Tidying up has always been a dreadful mission. A funereal occasion, as I bid farewell to a grave of significant memories. Eagerly digging through the coffin chest of treasures, I stumbled across a mysterious case thickly covered in a blanket of black dust. I unzipped it with utmost care. The soapy, silk touch of the detailed lining was a masterpiece of art - a painting of the Garden of Eden.
