Introduction

English short story. Sitting in the all alone sipping at her chilled root beer, Natalie watched her favourite music channel. The lights were off and the volume low as she was babysitting her little sister, who was fast asleep in the dead of the night. Natalie was staring at the TV in a gaze, like a tiger watching it's prey until it falls into it's trap; eyes fixed, yet the slightest movement or sound could trigger an upheaval. She was disturbed by the alarm of the microwave, and with a slight groan, she rested her can and lifted herself off the deep-set couch, which sprang back once she had left. Arriving back, munching at her salted popcorn she sat back into her seat that once again sunk down. With a sigh of relief she gazed at the television screen. She munched away and took another sip of her root beer, which was not very cold anymore. She was disturbed once again by the sound of the phone; she couldn't be bothered to answer it, however she knew it would awaken her sister. With a depressed attitude she answered, "Yes?" "Hello dear how are you?" It was her mother. "Fine," she replied with a distorted voice as she shoved another handful of popcorn in her mouth. ...read more.

Natalie sighed, "Yeah, thanks mum." "Is every thing all right dear?" Her mum asked in a concerned voice. "Yeah...everything's fine." She replied, still mentally immovable from her program. "Good, call me if you need to. Okay...bye" "Wait!" She shouted, not realising Bianca was sleeping. "What?" "A man just called, and pranked us, for a joke I think." "That happens all the time, don't worry about it." "Okay, I'll try. What shall I do if he calls again?" "Then...threaten him, say you'll call the police...that usually works." "All right then, I guess I'll see you later." She put down the receiver. Leaving her program, she set off once again, this time to check on Bianca. As she got up from her seat she glanced at the clock it was a quarter past eleven. As she ascended up the rather steep staircase, which creaked on every footstep taken, she yawned profoundly and stretched her arms wide out as if she was reaching back for her root beer and popcorn. She approached the final step when the phone rang again. She ran through the landing into her parents' room and answered the phone, which lay on the bedside table. "Hello." She said with a gasp for some air. ...read more.

Conclusion

She opened her wardrobe and quickly changed from her slippers to her trainers. Returning back to Bianca's room, the cupboard door was open but she had disappeared. Natalie checked all the rooms carefully and there was no sign of her. She shouted her name but there was no reply. Natalie started panicking even more now and was breaking down into tears, "Bianca!" She shouted, running down the stairs. There was still no reply. She searched everywhere except the living room, not bearing in mind what the anonymous prankster had said, nor wondering about whether he was even in the house. Natalie was determined to find her sister no matter whatever happens. She entered the living room via the kitchen and searched under tables and curtains. It was silent as ever except for Natalie trying to catch her breath, until she realised. Before coming upstairs to check on her sister, she remembered her can of root beer being on the table and her precipitous bowl of popcorn along side it. And most of all her MTV music channel on the top twenty countdown, all was gone, maybe it was Bianca, however Natalie knew it was a situation where there was no precious time to lose. This led only to one final conclusion; the anonymous prankster was inside the house. Miran Patel 10SM English coursework 4 AC ...read more.
