Halloween story

Extracts from this document...


On a dark November night I had accidentally taken the wrong bus home. The bus stopped at an abandoned big house. The bus driver kicked me out of the bus because it was the last stop. I had no money left to take a bus back and my phone had no signal. I got out of the bus and saw the big house in front of me. The house looked very old, some windows were broken, the stairway that leads to the door was broken also and there was old furniture in the porch.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

4 star(s)

This is an imaginative and well-told story. The first-person narrative effectively involves the reader and we are intrigued by the repetition of the dream events after the narrator wakes.

Paragraph construction is well managed. Sentence construction is managed adequately on the whole, with some repetition and grammatical errors.
