Lamb- Chapter 18

Extracts from this document...


Although he did not want to, he just kept glancing towards the body in the distance. As the gulls descended he realised that they were aiming for the lifeless young boy. He jumped up to get a clearer look. It took him a couple of seconds to realise he was right. He ran over as quick as he could, stumbling over the sand hills. He frightened the gulls away when he approached the scene. He bent over slightly and put his hands on his knees, trying to catch his breath. When he did he looked at Owen. He wondered if what he did was wrong- robbing a young boy of his life. He fell on his knees beside the boy. Owens expression was one he had never seen on his face before. Peace; tranquillity; contentment. This soon reassured him that he had done the right thing. A cigarette butt caught his eye. Owens last one -the one that he smoked straight after he finished his food. Michael grabbed the stub sticking out of the sand and put it in his mouth, then pulled it away spitting the sand off his lips, and wiping it off the tip. He franticly took the packet of matches out of Owens pocket and promptly took one out. He repeatedly tried to light it, then realised that they were wet from the sea. ...read more.


Just as he reached the end of the tune a pay phone caught his eye. He immediately slammed on the breaks and the car screeched to a halt. He got out of the car, slowly walked over to it, and paused just before he reached for the receiver. He didn't know who he was going to call; and what he could say to them. He shook his head and said to himself, "Just do it." He picked up the phone, put some money in, and started dialling. It rang for a few seconds, and he was about to put the phone down, convinced he wouldn't get an answer, but just as he moved it from his hear, he heard a cough and a tired voice croaked the words, "Hello? Benedict speaking." "Did I wake you?" Michael responded. "Yes you did. Wait" Benedict took a long pause, "Michael? Is that you?" Michael realised he couldn't turn back now; he had already made the phone call. He answered Benedict's question by saying, "Meet me?" Benedict didn't think twice about accepting his offer. They arranged to start driving to each other and meet half way. Michael had been driving for a while and saw the first pair of headlights he had seen on this night. He knew who it was and pulled over at the side of the road. ...read more.


When they got there Michael got out of the car as fast as he could and ran towards where he had left the boy. He stopped sprinting when he saw a big crowd of people on the sand. There was police; journalists; photographers; forensics. They were everywhere. Then one journalist, shouting questions and writing them in her notepad pointed in his direction and yelled, "There he is! There's Michael Lamb!" She- along with the other journalists and photographers raced over to him yelling all these questions at him. He was stunned with all the people surrounding him, and all the flashes from the cameras. He just looked around at everyone. Then out of nowhere came this police officer, who put Michael's hands behind his back and handcuffed them, while he explained, "Mr Lamb you have been arrested on suspicion on murder, you do not have to say anything, but anything you do say can and will be held against you in court..." Michael co-operated and walked to the car with the officer as he continued his speech. The press followed, taking pictures and surrounding the car. He was forcefully pushed into the back seat and the door slammed. He gazed out the window, looking at all the people running after the car, as it drove away from the body of the young boy he had murdered. Caitlin McIntyre 1 4 Lisbreen ...read more.
