Introduction

It was a cold misty Sunday night as Mrs.Withers, an old widowed woman living on her own, mother of three and grandmother of two was sitting in her rocking chair which was creaking as it went back and fourth staring at her open fire at the bright red and orange flames. Her house was in the countryside, which she had lived in since her husband and her got married. As you gradually get closer to the house there are rows of trees making it very private. They have always got enough wood for the open fire. The front garden is full of exotic flowers and gargoyles. The long path through the middle of the garden is covered in small pebbles, which crunch together as you walk over them. There is a swing for the youngsters when they come to visit. ...read more.

It had a blue duvet on it and a knitted blanket underneath which Mrs. Withers had knitted herself. The children loved that blanket it was always so warm especially on a night like tonight. The storm outside was getting worse as the minutes went by. The snow now was getting out of hand and was atleast knee high to Miss. Withers. The children were getting scared and started to cry because they wanted their parents. Miss.Withers didn't know what to do. She tried to keep them amused as long as possible but it wasn't working. ...read more.
