Tom Mooney GCSE English Non-fiction Writing Looking back November 24th 2006, five of us singing happy birthday and playing, jokes told, secrets hold and will forever stay. The night was great, full of action and drama but the morning was quiet and we decided to go play in the dark weary forest where an abandoned rope swing hung 20ft above a great muddy ditch full of debris and rubble. Our adrenalin was whizzing and our hearts beating but we still went on it risking our lives for fun, we took it in turns and enjoyed hours of thrill and adventure.
