Escape by Michael Young.

Extracts from this document...


Escape by Michael Young "Here in North Korea tension is escalating because of the group of rebels based on the mountains on the coast of Tongjoson Bay, the body of water behind me. It is just outside the heavily populated Wonsan." "Cut!" sighed the sound operator. "Those bushes were rustling and it's mucking up the sound" The whole crew were starting to get tired because sounds in the bushes had disturbed the report several times now. I took it from the top but another failed take resulted in a lot of sighing and protestation. As I was about to answer there was a noise like a gunshot and I turned round to see Phil the camera man dead on the ground. I was petrified. I tried to run but my legs were rigid with terror.

As I did this I aimed my gun back towards the gates in the general direction of the guards and emptied it spraying bullets everywhere. I ran and ran down this path. I was wheezing and coughing all the way. It took me to a pontoon jutting out into a sheltered, sandy bay. Flying into one of the battered rubber dinghies, I pushed off instantly. I prayed into myself then tried to start the outboard. Thick black smoke was billowing into my face. Quickly, I jumped into the next dinghy and that outboard started with only a tiny puff of greyish smoke, allowing me to speed away out of the bay with a hail of bullets raining down into the water around me. I was miles away from the rebels when a small launch vessel picked me up. It was from HMS Splendid. That was my lucky day but as soon as I got home my passport went straight in the bin. ...read more.
