Waqas Hussain English GCSE Coursework October 2005 Task: Original Writing Trapped It is two 0'clock in the dark misty night and the Mitchell family are on their way to fun land resort in Mexico City. It has been a stressful journey for the family of three towards Fun Land. Crossing the border into Mexico the car has been put to a halt. "Hello sir, can you open the trunk to your car please?" asked the smartly dressed inspector. The family leader (Jack) stepped out of the black saloon, walked to the back of the car and opened the trunk. The inspector has a brief look, "okay clear!" exclaimed the inspector to his manager. "Have a safe journey" said the inspector politely. Many miles away from the border crossing half way through the motorway, the car was speeding through the green rural areas. "This is such a smoo...." uttered Jack; suddenly the car started shaking. "What's happening to the car" says Jack's wife Jane in a confused voice. "Don't worry its nothing," replied Jack trying to reassure her. Getting off the motorway to check the... the car abruptly stopped in a rundown area, on a deserted road. The area was completely empty, there were no cars around; not even parked on the curbs. Insights were many small houses most of them bordered up with wooden boards. Jack tried many times to start the car, but there was no hope the car was going to start. ...read more.


He looked like he was in his late 40s, and behind him was an enormous staircase with stairs going up on both sides. The carpet was a dark royal red colour. "How can I help you?" questioned the man in a very deep voice. "Err...do you have a telephone that works" stuttered Jack. "Yes, its inside" answered the man. The man swiftly walked into the house, towards a desk, the family carelessly followed. The desk was neatly laid out; on the desk there was: a stapler, a hole puncher, a bunch of pens and pencils and a time-worn telephone. When Jack saw the telephone he felt relived and thought luck had come to rescue him. Jack noticed the grandfather clock against the wall behind the desk; the pendulum was smoothly swinging form left to right. Jack couldn't believe it was already half past 4 in the night. "Here you go sir, you may use the phone" communicated the man. Jack effortlessly picked up the receiver of the telephone and at the same time took out his mobile phone from the right pocket of his jeans, he looked through the numbers in his phone to find the car insurance number, and moments later he remembered he hadn't saved the number into his phone. A puzzled expression crept up on Jack's face. Jane observed the expression and asked "what's the matter? Haven't you got the insurance number?" ...read more.


Jack was getting short of air due to the firm grip the killer had on Jack's throat; he was turning into a purple colour. Ryan looked back he saw his dad going purple; he also saw the meat cleaver on the floor. Ryan ran towards the meat cleaver, "come back!" screamed Jane. Ryan kept going towards the meat cleaver; he picked up the heavy knife. The killer had Jack on the floor, and was still holding Jack's throat. Ryan hit the killer on the head with the meat cleaver. As the knife struck the killer, the killer dropped and blood started flowing out everywhere. It was absolutely disgusting but it was his lesson to learn, without delay Ryan checked that his dad was still breathing Ryan saw no hope that his dad was alive because his eyes were closed but maybe he was just unconscious however his dad started coughing and instantly got back up on his feet. "Come on we have to go", boomed Jane. Ryan turned around and that was when he stopped to catch his breath, there was the killer standing there ferociously breathing hardly, trying to stay alive with blood dripping from his begrimed face. Ryan was sweating buckets of fear and, he couldn't believe the killer got back up on his feet. The killer wasn't standing for long; he collapsed before he could take any more actions. The family had made it out of the house alive; they were not even severely injured, just had a few scratches. This was one vacation they would always remember. ?? ?? ?? ?? 1 ...read more.
