Most unlikley hero essay

Extracts from this document...


| Jessica Tilbrook | Most unlikely hero Back from the best holidays ever, now school. Great! Everybody was leaping off the buses as they entered the bus park, keen to see friends they haven't seen in ages, others dozing off on the bus as they haven't been awake so early in weeks. The playground was the meeting point; it was like a heaven full of gossip. Everyone was sharing what they did over the holidays and spreading secrets or rumours that weren't suppose to be told. In the corner by the sports hall was Kylie, the bags under her eyes made it look like she hadn't slept in years, her eyes half closed as she lent against the wall. As the bell rang, the shock on everyone's faces changed from a chirpy one to a miserable one. They had just come to terms with they actually had to start working again. First lesson. ...read more.


She kept pulling at the door but nothing happened. She looked up and down at the door, and realised there was gum stuck in-between the door frame and the door, sealing the door well and truly shut. Mandy started screaming "HELP, HELP!" but she had no reply. Everyone had probably already been evacuated from the school, and even if there was anyone outside they wouldn't have be able to hear her over the defending fire bell. Outside at the fire assembly point, everyone was lining up in alphabetical order, and being told to be quiet. All the students were starring at the school, as they saw it was on fire. They were all shocked even the people that hated school didn't really want this to happen. They were all speechless. All the teachers were frantically taking the registers, running round like headless chickens, and they told us not to panic! "Mandy Hampton?" there was no reply. ...read more.


He took him last gasp of air, before he set foot into the even worse thick swamp that lay before me. He staggered out of the bathroom, and stumbling down the corridor he finally got to the door leading out onto the playground, which led out to the fire assembly point... he kicked the door, to open it as he had no hands to open it with, and lay Mandy on the floor, to let her get some fresh air, and to calm her down. Mr Brown fell to the floor choking, as all the musty smoke was in his lungs. Most of the teachers and students came rushing up to the two victims asking if they were okay. They were all reassuring them that the fire brigade and ambulance were going to be there very soon. You could smell the thick murky aromour of the smoke on Mr Brown and Mandy clothes, it was so strong, and you couldn't have actually imagined what it would have been like if you were inside the school. And I thought firemen where suppose to be hero's. So much for an unlikely hero! ...read more.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

3 star(s)

At times there are some good examples of how language devices can be used to create certain effects; however this isn't sustained throughout, meaning the work becomes a bit dull at points and the characters are never fully developed into 3D characters.
