Horror Story - Fear

Extracts from this document...


GCSE English Coursework Horror Story Filled with Fear The sky was filled with darkness, only giving way to a small ghostly beam of piercing, white moonlight. The rage of the storm moved closer, destroying everything in its path like a savage beast. It relentlessly seemed to be moving closer and closer to Sam as he was driving home from work. The skies empty, as flocks of birds take refuge from the incoming terror. The wildlife that lived near the main roads abandoned there daily work and fled to their homes with the sense of danger burning in their minds. Sam, oblivious to the danger, kept driving with the urgency to get home - safe. For a few seconds the storm silenced. Suddenly, with a flash of lightening, the storm raided the town like a commander giving a signal to his army to fire. With the force of thousands of horses it ripe its way past through the trees with ease. Meanwhile, Sam knew that the storm was bad news and the fact that his great grandma used to say that driving in the storm brings bad luck was lurking in his mind. ...read more.


At this point Sam was completely soaked and then storm had seemed to calm down. The electricity came back as the street lamps were lit up again. He decided to climb to the roof of his house where he could open the attic window and get into his house. The attic window had a special code that was to be needed if one was to get in.

He was tired, shivering and scared. He gathered all the energy he had slowly and carefully moved towards the attic window where he entered the code in and open it. He entered the bedroom and again had to adjust his eyes to the darkness. ...read more.


Whilst lost in deep thoughts, the thunder struck and he jumped in fight. Suddenly he heard something fall on the kitchen floor. The tension was killing him. He saw a small shadow move along the living room wall but his eyes couldn't figure out what it exactly was. His heartbeat was increasing every minute and he could feel the blood rushing up to his head. His legs went numb. He bravely stood up and took small steps towards the kitchen. As he reached the kitchen door, he nervously peeped in, the thunder struck again and something jumped at his face. He was so immensely horrified that he became unconscious in a split second and fell to the ground. The following morning, the police found Sam's body outside the kitchen. They came to a conclusion that he died from a major heart attack. All they found on him was his wallet which has a few dollars and a picture of his pet cat in it. His cat stood silently beside Sam's body, failing to understand why he had reacted in such manner when it jumped on him. ?? ?? ?? ?? Gurnam Singh Virdi ...read more.
