Original Writing Zakariya Farooq 11m4 It was a blustery winter's day in the latter days of November. When I woke up that morning and looked out of the window, I wouldn't have dreamed that I would have seen a 9mm shotgun being pointed at my friends head. Christmas was coming and all the year tens had the opportunity to show their skills in the world of work by going for work experience. We waited anxiously to hear who had been placed in the same shops as each other and it did not start well, none of my friends had been placed together , my turn at last, my fingers were crossed and my luck was in.
