Extracts from this document...


Zaki Rafiq-Khatana 10i Personal Writing- Fiction: As usual George stopped at the local sweet shop on his way to school. It was the same old woman at the counter: Mrs. Meridew. She never smiled or thanked anyone. Gorge was not really bothered by this since he only went to the shop to buy sweets. "50p of 'Cola Bottles' and 20p of the 'Suga Snakes'." George always ordered the same thing so the old woman had started packing his sweets before he had finished telling her his order. As he headed out of the door, with the sweets safely in his pocket, he saw his older brother, David, walking to school with a girl he had never seen before. She was short, about five feet tall, with auburn hair. She was walking behind David and she occasionally ran ahead to say something and then returned to her position, behind him. ...read more.


After about half an hour, George decided to check on how his brother was. He quickly climbed up the stairs and walked into David's room without knocking.

Just then, there was the sound of the front door being swung open very loudly. He knew at once what had happened. David had realized that he had left George at home and now had rushed back to make sure he didn't go through his room. " GEORGE! WHERE THE HELL ARE YOU!" David was screaming at the top of his voice. George could hear him running around looking for him downstairs as he was stuffing all of the bits of paper and books into David's desk. George heard him running up the stairs and his speed of clearing up the mass got faster, but not quite fast enough as David burst in the room. His hair was in a state and his face was burning with fury. He was very wheezy and was spitting at odd moments. George felt nothing, but the greatest fear, as his brother looked as though he would murder him, there and then... (This is a start to a much longer story) ...read more.
