English Coursework Fatima Rashid Yr11G "Where was I?" I woke up with a throbbing headache, which felt as if my skull was being crushed mercilessly with a sledge hammer. The pain was excruciating. I helplessly tried to give out a cry however my efforts were in vain. I tried to touch my forehead, wondering whether it was a bump or just a bruise. But I could not move my hands. They were fused together like cement. I felt something around them like a rope, which kept on eating my flesh away every time I tried to move. Something was very wrong. Then, I tried to open my eyes, which were encircled by tears of pain. But I could just see pitch black. "Was I blind?". My eyes were malfunctioning. Everything seemed to have switched off.

George dubiously revealed, "We planned that your deputy takes over the company and I take the life insurance bonus, while you rot in the earth." I fell helplessly down into my in knees in betrayal. I weeped in misery and was drowning in the sea of confusion. I knew this was it. I was going to be murdered. My deputy aimed his revolver towards me, his finger positioned on the trigger. "Bang!" George fell down like a floppy fish. I screamed with astonishment. "What was happening?" There was another thunderous noise, "Bang!" I saw a bullet slicing through the air and pierced into my stomach. The next day, I woke up in hospital. I found out the truth. ...read more.
