Introduction

Original Writing Coursework First Draft It was a dull, wintry Friday and I sat looking out the window in class daydreaming because I was looking forward to the weekend as my parents had told me that we were going to stay with my grandma in Wales for the weekend. I thought about how delicious my grandma's Sunday lunches are and how her Yorkshire Puddings melt in your mouth like butter. Just then my best friend Ben lent over my desk and asked me if I was allowed to go to his house for tea and to play on his brand new games console. After school I phoned my mum on my mobile and asked her if it was ok to go to Ben's house for my tea, she said yes but I would have to be back by seven because that was when we were setting of to go to Wales. I told her I would make sure I was home in time. Then unexpectedly my mobile went dead; my battery must have run out. As we were walking to Bens house I saw the sky fill with clouds like a curtain over a window and I could sense there was going to be a thunderstorm. ...read more.

I felt like crying. But I couldn't, I had to carry on or else I would not get home in time. When I reached the park it had gone totally dark but at least there was lights in the there. Then I reached the bandstand and I had two options, go along the short path or the long path. I chose the short path of course. After about five minutes I reached the end of the path and I realised why nobody went the short way, The Unlit Lane. I stood there as still as a statue with the wind whistling in my ear and I remembered all the stories I have heard about the ghostly goings on. I was told that people had seen a ghost of a Victorian girl who was to been knocked over by a horse and cart. People say that they have heard the click clack noise of the horse's hooves on the old worn cobbles. Should I carry on or should I go back I said to myself. So I grabbed my mobile out of my pocket to phone my mum to pick me up but then I realised my battery was flat. ...read more.

Conclusion

I spun round but there was nothing there. I froze. I didn't know what to do so I just ran as fast as I could towards the light but I didn't seem to be getting anywhere. Then all of a sudden without me knowing I was out and in the light. I felt like crying with relief. I had done it. I ran down the brightly lit road to my nice warm home. I rapidly placed my key in the door and slammed it shut behind me. I looked at the clock and it was eight, I had made it. I went into the front room and my mum told me to quickly have a shower and get ready because the taxi would be here in a minute. I just felt relived to here my mums voice again. I rushed up stairs and had a lovely warm shower and got ready to go. The taxi came and we set of to Wales. On the way we passed The Unlit Lane and I felt so glad that it out of the lane. But I have to admit I feel curious to know were the ghosts real or were they a figure of my imagination. ...read more.
