How much is life worth?

Extracts from this document...


How much is life worth? "He's waiting for you," Mumbled a fellow sixth former who brushed past Michael's left arm. Michael gulped and lugged his bag over his tired shoulder and proceeded to the tall black gate. He reached the gate; it was about 7ft tall with thin back metal bars. He looked over his left shoulder, scanned the school and carried on walking. He went left heading towards the car park that leads to the bus stop on the corner of the town. As Michael went past a few cars he noticed a group of year 11's who where also passing through the car park, he tagged along at the back, put on his bright red cap on top of his spiked jet black hair, did up the buttons on his blazer and kept low. This was quite hard for Michael as he was 5ft 11 and the rest where a mere 5ft 7, so he towered over them. ...read more.


"Beat the money out of him!" Shouted one of the gang members. "Yea stab 'im up blud!" Replied another. Tom reached into his dark black blazer. He looked in and brought his hand out. He had a knife grasped in his hand. He walked over to Michael slowly, his gang stayed behind him. "Please don't Tom!" Shouted Michael as he backed away from Tom. "I will do anything!" "It's too late now." The knife was already in Michael's upper torso, blood soaking through his pristine white shirt. With his last gasp Michael said "It was only money!" Tom prised the knife from Michael's failing body. His gang had already dispersed out of the car park; Tom threw the knife into a thick bush and ran to the bus stop leaving Michael in the middle of the road. Pete parked up along side his 1884 Victorian Terrace house. He slammed the door of his silver Ford Fiesta, and walked up the brown path. ...read more.


"Michael Kensitt is in room 21!"She said whilst still staring at the computer screen. "First left and then fourth door on the right." Pete turned around and sprinted towards the room. He reached room 18 and moved on to the next door 19 then 20 then 21. He looked through the double glazed glass of the door. He could see Michael lying in the middle of the bed, Michael looked lifeless. No colour in his face at all. He opened the door slowly to see his Dad and his Mum at the bedside. "How is he?" he asked as his sat down on the chair next to his Mum. "Were just waiting for the results now." She said whilst grasping his hand. There was total silence for a whole 10 minutes with them all just staring into Michael's eyes. The Doctor entered the room and was looking very disappointed. "It's bad news isn't it?" Asked Michael's Mum standing up. "Yes it is I am afraid." Replied the Doctor. "It is unlikely that he will survive!"
