NAME: KHALID DALAL 11X5 ENGLISH SET: 2 A painful experience I was perched silently on the fortress of the wall, my long, dark coat billowing behind me like angel wings. The cold greys of the industrial sector sprawled out before me, showing hunger of the smelling of the chippy around the corner, the safety of the city was barely visible on the horizon. The stairs behind me were steep and narrow yet I still managed to make it down. I looked around but the silence remained. "Screech" a cat scurried along the empty street. The dizzying heights didn't seem to bother much as I sat down on a narrow steel pole, my eyes fixed on a huge metallic bridge in the distance with the feeling of doubt that I was being watched. I spotted a dark figure round the corner and promptly got to my feet in awareness. Time was moving ever so slowly now, an echo of time once had and now lost. ...read more.

A large bearded dark man with small beady eyes and clothes that must have been two years old he looked as he was in his 40s but had a determined look of a mad-man, his evil smug smirk on his face staring at me. Blood and sweat combined together dribbled down my forehead, tears leaked out of my eyes, tears of fear. Ever so slowly he came towards me and constantly I refrained further towards the cracked window. I looked out once more and recognised my ex-friends were here. They were looking up at me giggling then bursting into laughter; more tears came out of my eyes, but not tears of fear, tears of betrayal and hatred. I had forgotten that there was a six-foot madman waiting to kill me. I had forgotten that. I could only see a bright light... Where was I? What had happened? Oh no! ...read more.
