Mental Maniac.

Extracts from this document...


Mental Maniac It was a dark and stormy night. Rachel was nice and cosy lying on the sofa in her living room watching a horror movie on TV; her feet pressed against the warm fur of her curled up cat. Rachel was feeling a little hungry so she put her slippers on and padded to the kitchen. She opened the fridge, muttered to herself, closed it and opened the freezer. "Huh," she mumbled. The sight made her turn away; there was no pizza. The phone starting ringing so Rachel ran upstairs to answer it. It was just her mum making sure Rachel was ok home by herself. Rachel went back downstairs to watch the rest of the movie. To her surprise, she found a pizza in a takeaway box on the table, the pizza was hot. Rachel sat on the sofa. Just as she was about to take a mouthful, she heard someone or something in the kitchen. ...read more.


"I'm just taking the rubbish out," she shouted and got a mumbled "Ok," in response. It was cold and dark outside. Rachel made her way to the bin at the side of the house. As she put the bag in the bin the hairs on the back of her neck bristled as if something was behind her, but when she turned around she could only see the garage. She decided to check whether somebody was behind it. There was nobody there. As she turned around, there was somebody there; it was Mr Stevens from across the road. "I didn't mean to scare you; I was just coming home from the shop and saw somebody moving around over here. I thought it might be that lunatic that was in the paper this morning, but it's just you, thank God." "What lunatic? I didn't read the paper this morning." ...read more.


Sorry I left you, I just went to switch the fire off at home, my friend phoned me to tell me that I left it on, didn't you hear all the noise outside?" Rachel took his explanation, but she didn't hear any fuss outside. "What noise outside?" she asked. "Some maniac killed that old man that lives across the road; Mr Stevens is his name I think. According to the policeman I spoke to, the murderer ripped Mr Stevens apart. He said that old man was calling 999 to report a burglar but the phone line went dead. They found the killer and took him away. Don't say you slept through the sirens?" "I was only talking to Mr Stevens a few hours ago," her eyes filled with tears, "It could've been me." "I know, and you were fond of him weren't you? They've got the killer now and I'm Here." They both sat on the stairs with their arms around each other until Rachel fell asleep on Sam. Sam carried her back to bed. GCSE Coursework 1 ...read more.
