Of Mice and Men-Weed

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Of Mice and Men - Chapter in Weed A few kilometres west from the icy white tops of Mount Shasta, lay a small ranch deserted from civilisation for miles around. The sky was filled with the many colours of dusk not a cloud in sight just the beams of light from the sun. On the ranch six large well-built men sat around an unstable, wooden dining table, playing a game of cards. Money was scattered in the middle of the table along with four cards; a three, a ten and two jacks. "It's your turn George," said one of the men tapping his fingers rapidly on the table. "I know I know John, gimme' a chance... Right then, I call your ten and raise ya twenty," replied George with a deep blank voice. John stopped his tapping and stared in shock at George. "What's the matta' John?" George said breaking the John's silence. "What? Erm... Nothing, I just errr... raise ya ten," John replied taking a noticeable gulp. "Whoa this is gettin' inta' big money!" bellowed another man sitting taking a puff of his pipe, adding to the already smoke filled room. "Ye, both got good hands then?" Another man spoke out, slouching in an uncomfortable wooden chair. ...read more.

Middle

The woman had obviously made an effort to look nice and be noticed, she walked slowly towards Lennie making a crackle again, Lennie look back away from the horse, gazing at her red dress. The woman stopped and looked intimately at Lennie as if waiting for him to speak to her. After a longed wait the woman finally spoke "Well... Are ya not gonna' say nothin' or what?" There was no reply. "Huh? Well... typical, y'ar jus like the rest of em'." She turned around and started walking away to find someone else to talk to. Lennie's eyes followed the woman's dress and then asked, "d'ya like horses?" The woman turned her head again and smiled at Lennie, he smiled back in excitement. "Yuh huh, everybody likes horses," she replied as she walked towards the fence beside Lennie. "What's her name?" "I called her Sandy, cos, cos she's a sandy colour," the woman's hand reached out and stroked the horse's mane. Lennie's head turned being distracted by the bright red dress. "She's soft," said the woman but Lennie's eyes were fixed on the red dress. Lennie reached out and touched the dress where it was covering the woman's waist, the woman stepped back in shock. ...read more.

Conclusion

George said in annoyance. "What?! I wasn't trying to rape her George! I jus wanted to stroke her dress," "I know ya dint' try 'n rape her ya wouldn't even know how! Anyway, we can't keep this up, I'm knackered and they'll soon be on our tail, we'll have to hide." George explained looking around for some place out of sight. "It's too far to get to the forest so we'll have to lie down in one of these irrigation ditches," "But it's all dirty George..." "Well d'ya see anywhere else to hide Lennie! Besides t'was your fault we're in this mess anyways! Now get in that ditch." "O, o okay George, sorry George," Lennie replied, face down as he walked past George and jumped into the ditch. George followed and they hid themselves under a bit of shrubbery. "It's late nows anyways, betta gets some sleep and we'll head down south tomorra'," whispered George. "Goodnight George," Lennie said hoping for George to say the same back, but George was too annoyed at Lennie to reply. There was silence throughout the night apart from the whistling of the wind and the odd shout coming from the ranch. The moonlight was soon covered by dark clouds forming a layer of black darkness over Weed, not even the icy white tops of Mount Shasta were visible. ?? ?? ?? ?? Rob Lord 1 ...read more.
