LOST-descriptive writing

Extracts from this document...


LOST I didn't know where I was. I didn't know how I got there, or how I was going to get out, all I knew was that I was lost! I looked around, it was so dark that I couldn't see my outstretched hand in front of me but I could smell the musty smell of damp wood. I assumed I was in a forest in England but something told me I could be mistaken, something slithered past my leg hissing as it passed. I was terrified, my heart pounded in my chest as I tried to keep as still as possible until I was certain that I was safe! It was at this point I realised I wasn't safe at all, I wasn't in a wood, I most definitely wasn't in England, I was in a rainforest and I had no idea where... I began to run, as fast as my legs could carry me over the leaf littered floor, trampling on bugs as I went only stopping when I reached the edge of the forest, here I collapsed exhausted, afraid and alone. ...read more.


As I lay next to the pool I heard a noise, this time it wasn't a hissing noise, it was something much louder and whatever it was, it was getting closer! I lay trembling with fear, adrenalin pumping round my body. I closed my eyes hoping, praying, whatever it was that was making the horrific noises, would soon go away. How wrong could I have been? Closer and closer the noise crept. The adrenalin pumping round my body faster and faster. My fists clenched tighter and tighter, I waited. Then suddenly the noise stopped suspiciously, I turned myself over with all my might but I didn't dare open my eyes, I didn't think I could stomach the horror that would stand before me. Nothing happened, I gulped, the cautiously I opened my eyes and quickly shut them again. I couldn't believe what I saw. Nothing! I was sure I had heard a noise, and was sure that it was getting closer and closer. I couldn't have imagined it, it was too real. The noise started again. ...read more.


All different shades of green, dark, light, dull and bright. All mixed together to make one huge canvas of colour. Whilst climbing down the rocks by the side of the waterfall I heard the noise again. It gave me a fright and I lost my grip on the rocks and fell, to what I thought to be my death. But no it was to my advantage as I woke at the foot of the cliff I could feel my legs. I was so happy. So happy in fact I hadn't noticed that the creature or whatever was in the jungle was making its way towards me. I didn't even need to turn round, I heard its growl, smelt its putrid breath, felt the ground tremble beneath my body, I picked myself up, and ran... I ran as fast as I could across mud, grass, leaves, creatures, roots and fallen trees, my heart beating so fast I could hear it ringing in my ears, I ran still faster through trees and bushes until finally the creature could not be heard or seen, all that surrounded me was silence, in fact you could hear a pin drop! But it was no pin that I heard drop... ...read more.
