Gladiator - Creative writing.

Extracts from this document...


Gladiator As I walked down the crumbing stone steps, to the mammoth golden doors, fear surged through my body as I heard the sound of clapping and the roar of the crowd. I trudged out the grand gates and was overwhelmed by the size of it. Sand flew up at me and made it extremely difficult for me to see properly. Hesitantly, I made my way into the centre of the arena. We crowded around in the middle of the arena before whirling our heads round when we heard the gates rise up. 100's of roman soldiers came charging out at us on horses and carriages. My Body froze from fear and for a moment I couldn't move. Most of us managed to get out of the way of the carriages but some weren't as fortunate. The look of terror was spread across everybody's face and none of us were prepared for what was about to happen. The sun beat down on me, almost melting my skin making it hard to concentrate. ...read more.


I boldly strode up to the soldier before drawing my sword and pointing it to his throat. "P...Please don't kill me" he pleaded It was pathetic. All the rage I felt when Peter had been killed came back to me in an instant, and I took my sword and drove it through the soldiers' throat. The crowd went silent for a few seconds before erupting with cheers and claps. As the blood poured out and I turned to walk away I couldn't help but feel as just as big a monster as the emperor himself. I looked around to see hundreds of bodies littered across the arena floor. Many of the gladiators had families back home, all who were wondering if they would ever see their Husbands or Dads again. My heart pounded as if it was right against my ribs ready to break out. With tired eyes I looked down at my sword, a "trophy" of my hard work in this round of fighting; it was not a trophy but a curse. ...read more.


I swore I would get my revenge on him no matter what it took. The crowd chanted "Save Save Save!" The Emperor reached out with his hand and after what seemed a lifetime, raised his thumb up. I watched on triumphantly as he turned and stormed back up the stone steps and up into his blissful room. As I trudged off the field I looked around one last time but had to turn my head back as my eyes filled with tears for the good people who had lost their lives today in the battle. I felt brave and heroic but at the same time idiotic, the Emperor would have his eye on me now and wouldn't stop until all his beasts and soldiers had slaughtered me. I washed down and threw my armour to the floor. My bed was hardly something comfy but after what I had been through, was the closest thing to heaven I had ever had. As my exhausted body ached and my eyes shut I lay feeling like a winner in one way but a cold blooded killer in another way and I wasn't looking forward to what was going to happen tomorrow ... ...read more.
