ENGLISH COURSEWORK - (Creative writing) The Unlucky One

Extracts from this document...


The Unlucky One. It's a dark and gloomy winter's day in the south of Wales. Katie Brown wakes up to the sound of her mother saying, "Wake up, it's time for school." Katie was a very beautiful girl, yet she was so self-effacing and calm. She was doing exceedingly well in school with her education, and her mum considered her to be the "golden child." Katie, unlike many of her female friends, desired to contribute more effectively to humanity, rather than what was considered a women's job. Katie always looked up to her father as doctor who contributed immensely to society. She too wanted to become one of the first women to break the barriers of the male dominated world. She lived with her two younger brothers who were twins and her older sister along with her mother who was unfortunately divorced. Her sister was always the mutinous and rebellious one that always did something wrong and was shouted at. She found her brothers bothersome yet she loved them with all her heart. Katie had to live a dual life almost as she was mainly the cleaner of the house as her mother needed help with housework and she also had to go to school. ...read more.


We have been taken by these men to do their dirty work. Some of us are forced to sell drugs for them and some of us are enslaved. Katie with a shocked expression said, "is this going to happen to me as well?" The mysterious girl replied, "You're not any different. You will also have to go through the same pain as we did. After a few hours of driving the van had halted to a stop. Johnny the kidnapper said to his workers, "Right then, we are here now. Go open the door and don't let any of them escape. Do you hear me otherwise I'll have all your heads." One of the workers then opened the back door of the van and after being in the dark for so long the sudden rush of light from the street lamps blinded Katie for a few seconds as she covered her eyes. Meanwhile Katie's mother was looking at the time as it neared to the school finishing time. The phone suddenly rang and for a reason this phone call seemed different. As soon as the telephone rang Katie's mother was met by a shocking sensation as when she picked up the phone she was greeted by the head teacher saying that, "your daughter Katie is in trouble I'm afraid. ...read more.


Katie managed to even find her way back into her area. From this point, Katie could find her way home very easily and it looks like for Katie that this time she has succeeded and has gotten a second chance. Katie after walking in the rain pondering about her life turns into her road- Ladbroke Grove. Upon turning into her road Katie sees that there are many police cars outside her home but at first she is not as worried as she could be. She thought of it as her mother being worried sick and therefore phoning the police. However, when she continues to draw nearer to her house she starts to see an ambulance. Katie goes into a fit of despair and she runs towards her home and she yells "MUUUUUUUUUUUM" very emotionally. The police man calmly says, "could you stay back please" not knowing that she was the missing daughter. She reveals that she is Katie and the man let's her through. To her despair she see's her mother and her twin brothers and older sister all dead on the floor. Whilst she was in a state of shock she observed that it said on the wall, "I told you if you try and run away then you will PAY." Katie after seeing this goes crazy as she knows that her family is dead because of her. ?? ?? ?? ?? Yasin Hassan - 1 - ...read more.
