Introduction

English Coursework Write a story with a twist As I stare out of my cell at the keepers doing their rounds, I wonder for the hundredth time or so what would have happened if I had not left my home for a walk that morning six months ago. I would not have been kidnapped, never to see my family again, I would never have been thrown into this cell, three walls of which are bars a finger's thickness and two finger's width apart. I would be free to go where I want walk ; jump, run instead of being taken for "walks" in the cement, high walled courtyard two times a day to "stretch my legs". I know for a fact that one of the reasons that they have the walls other than to stop us escaping is so that noone outside can see the horrible mutilations that have gone on inside our walled prison. One by one, all my companions have disappeared, and out of the fifteen that went, only three came back. One had had his arms and legs inverted, one has an extra hand protruding from his arm and the last can no longer talk, but barks and behaves just like a dog. ...read more.

One day, the keeper, after taking my bucket out to be rinsed and from the corner of my cage, forgot to lock the door after shutting it. I immediately saw my chance but decided not to act straight away. I waited until the rounds man had done his second run round the building , and then it was time to act. I had ten minutes until he came around again. Whispered goodbyes and good lucks rang in my ears as I quietly opened the door and crept along the passage that led to the walled courtyard. Now, every morning and every evening I had been staring at those walls, trying to see where I would be able to climb it easiest. I had discovered that on the north side, nearest the building there was a drainpipe connecting the roofs gutter system to the sewage pipes that run underneath our hidden warehouse/prison . The only problem is that Charlie's room is right behind the drainpipe on the third floor. I had to try it, but if I do not manage it and make a loud noise, and he wakes up and sees me, Charlie will definitely have me terminated as a "incurable case". ...read more.

Conclusion

It has come to this. I am to be taken back to the lab, and will be terminated... But we do not go back, we drive fro about two hours, and then I am carried gently into another cell, this time it is bigger. The bars are about a hand's width apart, but there is absolutely no way I could get out. I have a place to walk, whenever I want, my food is topped up constantly and soon my eyesight is perfect. There are others here, all have a large cell and a little garden. We are surrounded by signs, there is one on each cage. This has our details, and medicine that we need. Also we have the amount of food that we eat on average each day. There are signs saying things like: "Please watch your head, steps!" "Floors cleaned twice a day, slippery ground." "Please don't put hands inside cages"(the reason they have this one is because one of my companions grabbed a man's arm in a plea for help, but pulled too hard, and dislocated his shoulder) "Do not step past the white line." But the one that is everywhere around the room, in big black on white, bold writing is: "PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE MONKEYS." The End ?? ?? ?? ?? Rose Ridgeway 5/17/07 Page 1 of 4 ...read more.
