Creative Writing : The Encounter

Extracts from this document...


Creative Writing : The Encounter By Edward Paradise Walking up the mountain, a cloudless sky overhead, it was a near perfect day. As my climbing party and I reached the bottom of Mount Savorlia, the highest mountain in the world, I gazed upwards and stared in wonder at the snow-capped peaks, vast forests and steep alpine trials. It appeared that one man alone could not triumph over this mammoth creation of the earth. I was enthralled by this foreign land and I found myself in, isolated from accustomed civilisation I felt as though I was in a different world with surroundings uncharted and valleys undiscovered. It was pointed out to me, however, that the menacing pitch black clouds known well to these parts were on the horizon and imminent. A strong wind was picking up and beginning to howl out ears.

Many shots missed but those that hit their target were enough to make it slip on the ice-covered ground and crash to the floor. I decided to finish it now. As it raised itself from the slippery surface, I took aim through the rifles telescopic sight, right between its eyes. I pulled back the trigger. Click, nothing happened. I desperately tried again, and again nothing happened. I thought quickly and back tracked around the beast towards a loose but fairly large boulder. Putting all my weight behind it I pushed in the direction of the beast. After my third push the boulder gave way and slipped downwards. It crashed directly into the creature and smashed through the ice surface that it was standing on, sending it into a deep crevasse.
