English Coursework Grandfather sat in his armchair relaxing in his grey slippers, and cardigan, he sat slouched in the chair staring up at the ceiling, at his feet was a small table on it was a few digestive biscuits and a cup of tea. His daughter walked past him and asked, "Is everything alright? Dad?" "Yes, everything is fine" he sighed, His daughter looked upon him with pity, and said" Don't worry I know something that'll cheer you up soon," and as she said that she turned to look at the grandfather clock up against the wall and then the front door, there was a moment of silence, the only sounding in the atmosphere was the sound of ticking and tocking by the clock. Just then a ding-dong came from the bell at the front door.
