Creative Writing - "Relief"

Extracts from this document...


Nov/Dec 2002 Creative Writing - Coursework "Relief" The phone rang. It broke the silence of my seething rage. Its high piercing sound irritated me for some reason. I wanted to scream. Lisa wouldn't normally cause me to feel that way (maybe it wasn't just Lisa, but she had been getting to me recently). As twins we were supposed to share a special bond, and usually we got on really well. Despite being only four minutes older than Lisa, I often felt strangely protective of her. With curly blonde hair and brown eyes we looked totally identical, but the similarities ended there. Lisa's favourite word was change; new outfit, new boyfriend, new hairstyle and so on. I was calmer. I had two very close friends - Hannah and Angie, and a steady boyfriend - Adam. That was another part of the reason why I was at home and in such a state. I had just got to the party, after being held up with my friend Laura, who was upset about family problems. Things between Adam and I had not been going well recently, and tonight he had arranged to meet me at six, so we could talk. It was nearly seven. I feared the worst, but friends do come first. ...read more.


A strange numbness had come over me. I couldn't think or do or feel anything. There seemed to be a gap where my stomach was and my heart was beating so loudly the whole of Sawbridgeworth could probably hear. Finally we reached the hospital. Helen's mum put her arm around me and led me. Somehow she knew where to go. All my resentful thoughts about Lisa had melted. I felt empty, small and absolutely terrified. I found myself sitting in a green chair. It was a sick green, the green you always find in hospitals. I could see my dad looking grave, his arm around my mum, who was silently crying. Suddenly I noticed there was an arm around me, it was Adam's. I shook it off. A doctor stood by me; he held a glass of water and a small round white tablet. He was telling me to take it. "Where's Lisa?" I asked "They did all they could for her. She wanted to tell you something. She kept calling "Ali, Ali" all the time she was conscious. She said that she loved you. We think she was driving to see you. She was driving very fast, the roads are icy" He said He didn't need to tell me anymore. ...read more.


We're all fine, your mum and dad are out, and remember Charlie moved to Belgium in August." I was totally dazed. I felt as if I had been asleep a few hundred years, instead of a few hours. "So Lisa isn't dead and she never went with Adam," I said uncertainly. "I can't believe you even thought such a thing!" exclaimed Lisa. "Oh Ali, I'm so sorry" "Everyone's downstairs, I'll go down and explain. You come when you're ready." said Angie. I couldn't restrain myself any longer. I whooped and threw my arms around Lisa, who looked shocked but pleased. My relief was so immense. I would never hate Lisa again. I was close on euphoric. I slipped my arm through Lisa's and we went downstairs. Amy and Miranda had made up some sandwiches, and after all that had happened I think we all needed them. I was still incredibly tired, but I felt the sudden urge to hug everyone. My emotions were running so high. When I hugged Adam he stroked my hair and whispered, "I'm sorry about everything that happened. I love you." Before I knew it he was kissing me deeply. Charlie phoned to say "Happy new year." Everyone looked so happy now. As Lisa said, "It's like a dream." We all laughed. It felt so good. Relief. ...read more.
