Introduction

No escape I've been told stories about what it use to be like. I try to imagine what life would be like without our leader, it could never go back to how it use to be. Everyone fighting for power, it was like a food chain, a food chain where everyone wanted to be at the top. I once heard a story of young 'gangs' I didn't know what a 'gang' was but it sounded dangerous.

Middle

Our Leader made sure we knew that this was the best possible place and everywhere else bad things happened. If we disobey our Leader we would disappear and never be seen again, were not allowed to question what happens in our lives, it all set out for us from the day we are born. Something happened to me that made me question our leader, something that hurt me more than anything. I had a baby and they took it him away from me.

Conclusion

Some people had come from the outside, they promised our leader they would do as he says and live life like us. They promised too never tell what happens on the outside but someone had told stories and them stories spread rapidly. Our Leader decided it was best to not let anyone in anymore; they would only try to make our world bad they would make up bad stories to tell us, to get us to turn against him. You may wonder if I question my life and the way it has been planned, yes. I think about it all the time, I wonder what life is like outside of this place but like a prison, there's no escape. ?? ?? ?? ?? Kirsty Bain Short Story - English ...read more.
