English Coursework Writing 2 Explore Emagine & Entertain (The Gap)

Extracts from this document...


English Coursework: Writing to Explore, Imagine and Entertain. The Gap The year is 2032, I have just escaped in an 'Eagle' and I am making my way towards my home planet, Earth. I am getting a reading on my long-range scanners and it's Earth! I have been waiting for this moment for months. I wonder if my house is the same or my friends still remember me. All I can do now is wait and hope 'they' don't catch me. It all started 10 years ago when I got a phone call from my friend Danny. "Jimmy, phone." "Who for?" "You, who else." "Oh right, who is it?" "I didn't ask... just take the phone." "When did he phone? Just kidding, I got it." "Hi, is that Danny, I got..." "Never mind all that. I just intercepted a virtual message, I think it's code red. It sounds amazing, no extraordinary..." "Just cut to the chase." "Oh yeh! Sorry, they said it was the destroyers again. One was supposed to have crash-landed this time near that scientific research centre, I heard them saying they want to find out once and for all if it is the Russians or Japanese." "When should we go?" ...read more.


There were sounds coming from everywhere, one was getting louder and louder, so I quickly hid behind a stack of boxes until the cost was clear. I took a good look round, it was something magnificent, I had never seen so many levers and buttons before. There were stacks of strange weapons and sharp swards; there were also masks hanging on the walls just like the ones the men wore outside. Suddenly green lights flashed all round me and before I could do anything hundreds of men marched through the doorway taking their uniforms off and hanging them in their places. The lights changed to blue and the door shut. The destroyer was preparing to leave I was trapped. I grabbed my radio "Danny can you hear me, Danny I'm in the destroyer, and it's taking off, what should I do?" "Slow down I can just about hear you, I know, I can see large flames shooting out of it, wait it's turning, it's moving" "What else can you see?" "It's just shot a missile at the army control base, it's in ashes there's nothing left ..." That was the last I ever heard of Danny, I guess our radios just didn't work over a large distance and at the speed the destroyer was travelling I was a long way from home. ...read more.


I walked through the large doorway separating the corridor and the pod bay; at least there were no sensors or passwords like they have at the army bases. I saw a large fighter plane, it had strange guns all over it, and working out how to fly the monster was my next task. I closed the door behind me, I had a good look around and there was as many buttons in this ship as there was in the rest of the ship... What is that? It's a moving fast, it's an asteroid, I had better move out the way and quickly, that was close, it missed me by a few meters. Well that's how I landed up this ship running away from some aliens, it's only another few hours until I reach Earth's atmosphere, I hope I don't get shot down by the defence unit thinking I am a threat, and that my friends will recognise me, well after all I am ten years older than they last saw me. Now I know that they put me into a deep coma for so long, so that I would survive for their experiments, luckily. Oh and about those controls, I managed to figure them out, well at least after I blew a few holes in the 'Hawk 3'. Yitzy Liebermann Date of completion Feb 03' 1 ...read more.
