Extracts from this document...


Original Writing John We were outside someone's house and Dan knocked on the door. I'd never done a burglary before so I didn't know what the hell I was doing. I didn't really want to do this burglary either but if I didn't, Dan would kill me. He's just got out of prison for being involved in a car crash. Just then we heard someone shout something and then Dan made me break the door down. I was really scared so I counted to three and kicked the door down. I followed Dan into the house. He got a knife out of his pocket. "Dan what are you doing?" I asked. He looked at me and smiled. A woman about forty came downstairs. Dan made me stay with her whilst he went upstairs to rob a few things. The woman didn't look that scared. She kept asking me questions about Dan and me but I kept lying to her because I didn't want her to find out who I was. ...read more.


Then I heard a loud bang. I went downstairs and saw two men. One of them looked about twenty-five and the other one looked about sixteen. The young one looked very scared. I knew they were going to do something as soon as I saw them. "John you stay with her until I come back," the older one said to the nervous, younger one. So his name was John. Well I could tell John didn't want to do this and he wouldn't do anything to harm me. "So how old are you, John," I asked him. "Eighteen," he replied. Just then I realized I had my mobile phone in my pocket. I dialled 999 when he wasn't looking. "Has he made you do this burglary," I asked him, knowing the police would hear me. "Who? Dan? No were in this together," he responded. I kept talking to him trying to find out as much as possible and I already knew their names. ...read more.


I didn't seem to find much else so I went back downstairs. I got downstairs when we heard sirens. I ran out the house and I ran as fast as I could. I turned around and saw the police chasing after me. I panicked and hid in someone's garden. I waited and then I heard a dog start barking. "Shut up," I whispered angrily to the dog. The dog carried on barking and I saw lights flashing. It was the police with their torches. The dog was still barking so I crawled into the next garden and crawled round the back. I got up and then ran but it was pitch black and I didn't see the bin and ran straight into it. "Ahhhh, my knee," I screamed and then I realized the police heard me so I got up, jumped over the fence into the next garden and ran straight into a policeman. "Where are you going?" he asked me. "Nowhere," I answered. "Your under arrest," he said. He got his handcuffs out and put them on me. ...read more.
