Introduction

English coursework It was a beautiful country house on top of a hill overlooking the valley. During the summer it is possible to see for miles around and appreciate the beauty of nature. Mathew was watching his favourite game show from his dad's favourite armchair with his feet up on the coffee table. His parents had gone out for the evening. This is the life he thought to himself. There it was that was the second time he'd heard that thud. The first time he had heard the thump he did not take much notice of it.

"So that's what's been making all the noise up here." Mathew then switched on the light "You're an owl," Mathew shouted his heart pounding. He tossed the walking stick over his shoulder and grabbed handfuls of his hair. "Its just a stupid owl" He didn't know whether to laugh or cry. The owl rotated his head from side to side, oblivious to Mathew's state of mind and continued to stare at Mathew. "Just an owl," Mathew whispered again as he kneeled down on the floor with relief. "were you as frightened as me? You scared me half to death." "I do let my imagination run away with me sometimes." "Imagination indeed" the man whispered from the far corner of the room.
