Extracts from this document...


Of Mice and Men Sequel The autumn sun shone weakly through the cracks in the bunkhouse. George sighed into the pillow and slowly turned to face the others playing cards at the nearby table. 'It's as if he hadn't even existed.' George thought angrily, 'why they're all playin' and howling like a coupla dogs as if nothin' ever happen.' He shifted again to stare up at the rotting ceiling, once again he sighed. The bunkhouse seemed larger to George and everyone else so distant, it was as if there was a deep chasm between him and the others, even though they were only a few metres away. "Sure you won' join us?" Slim enquired; he took off his hat and examined it briefly. "Come on George. You have to face reality som' time."

Nothing exciting had happened to George and Candy, all except for a frog that was hopping along. The monotonous sound of the horse's hooves threatened to send George into a deep slumber. And Candy, he just sat next to George occasionally lifting his left hand to rub his stumped wrist. Just then, a woman appeared. Not just any woman, the most beautiful woman in the world according to George. Her light brown hair with streaks of a deep red that almost looked brown in the light was delicately waved. It framed her oval face perfectly. Her emerald green eyes looked at George wistfully, as if to decide whether he was approachable.
