Extracts from this document...


Reflections She peered over into the frozen river. There she was, her glaring eyes staring back at her. "What are you doing back here?" she whispered coldly. "I... well...I..." She was astonished. She couldn't believe she was having this conversation with her. "Well, you do know you're going down for murder!" she hissed back. "I didn't do it! It wasn't me! Why won't anyone believe me?" she fired back. All the accusations were driving her mad. She felt so angry; tears were welling up in her eyes. "You're going down for murder! You're going down for murder!" she chanted and hissed. "NO! NO! NOOOO!" she screamed. Why won't anyone listen to her? She started to run away, but her legs were frozen. She felt something tugging her leg. She looked back and saw her come out of the river. Her bare hands hung on to her leg. "NO! LET GO OF MEEE!" she screamed at the top of her voice so that her throat dried out. "Anna, what's wrong?" her father shouted from downstairs. She woke up; sweat trickling down her face, yet the rest of her body was freezing cold. She realised her duvet was thrown across the floor. Had she thrown it whilst she was dreaming? ...read more.


It was affecting everyone. Anna thought it may be her parents wanting to split up, after all they were arguing around the clock or there was something they were keeping from her. After a while, she found herself standing outside her grandfather's house. Anna knocked on the door and her granddad opened it. "Oh, what a lovely surprise!" he seemed pleased to see her, "Happy Birthday." "Thanks." Her granddad sensed there was something wrong. He explained that he was about to go and buy some teabags. He asked Anna if she wanted to come along, and they could take a stroll through the park on their way. Anna agreed, and so they set off on the pavement. "Is there something wrong, love? You can tell me anything, you know?" her grandfather tried to comfort her. "Well, I had a very strange dream today and I just can't get it out of my head. You might think I'm crazy, but I don't know whether it was a nightmare or real-life." Anna explained all about the river and the conversation with that girl. "Well...I mean...it could have just been a nightmare, I mean, we do all have them from time to time," he suggested. Anna could see that he hesitated when she told him about the girl in the river. ...read more.


Anna pieced everything together. So that was why she had a scar at the back of her head, it wasn't from a bicycle fall. Anna looked down into the river. The same frosty blue eyes were staring back at her, even though this time, there were thousands and thousands of them, all magnified. Although, hang on a minute - her reflection started to float to her right. At first, Anna ignored it, she was confused and she was staring at a maze of mirrors. "AAAAAAAAAARRRGHHH!!!!!!!" she screamed in horror. Her voice pierced through the city. That was a DEAD body, not her reflection! "But she looks just like me" Anna thought to herself. "I have to get away before somebody sees me, then I will be named a suspect for murder!" Anna thought quickly. "How is it that she looks like me? Is that her, my own sister?" Anna questioned herself. With every question came a voice in her head telling her she was crazy and she should be getting back home before anyone sees her. Anna took a deep breath. Thoughts rushed through her head. Will she go down for murder? Anna was confused. She was searching for an explanation. "GET OUT OF HERE!" the voice in Anna's head shouted. Anna turned around to make her way home. Just then, she felt something tugging her right leg... The End By Reem Al-Hassani 10CW ...read more.
