Introduction

She let herself in through the brown oak door. It was nice and warm inside. The fire lit up the large room making it glow with life. She put her soiled hands into the pocket of her thin green jumper. She could feel it, nice and cool, in her warm bony hands. She started to go into her room, when a huge figure loomed ahead of her. 'And where do you think you're going?' inquired the person. She looked up to see the red hot face of her mother, half-smiling, half-angry. 'Go and get cleaned up,' her mother ordered. She nodded her head and rushed off towards the small section of the house that was supposedly called the bathroom. After scrubbing herself clean and getting rid of the muck and cow dung on herself, she looked like a porcelain doll, dainty, fresh looking and with perfect features. She walked up to her bed. It was huge and had clean white sheets. She and her sister Maria shared the bed. She lay her clothes down carefully on her side of the bed. ...read more.

Her sister shrugged her thin shoulders and climbed into the bed. She quickly sat on her pillow and looked down at her sister, warning her that if she even dared to look under the pillow, she would be beaten. 'But Beth, let us see.' Maria asked. Beth shook her head got off the bed and walked away. She turned round and gave another warning to her little sister before leaving the room. She had to help Mama to wash up and clean the house. The next day Beth met Michael again. He was full of excitement and kept jumping around all over the place. Beth had no time for him. She had to go to the farm to get some milk, cheese and eggs. They had nearly run out of milk. She walked quickly trying to ignore him, but she couldn't stand it any longer. Full of curiosity she asked him why he was so full of excitement. He didn't answer, just keeping a smug expression on his face. ...read more.

Conclusion

How could anyone do such a vile and cruel thing? Michael put his arm around her and helped her to stand up. He handed Beth the basket and she wiped her tears away carefully, with a swipe of her hands. Michael stretched out his arms and she was towards him. He gave her a hug and kissed her lightly on the forehead. She blushed bright red and smiled. The reality finally sunk in, kind; caring Old Joe Meggarty had been found dead in his home. He had been killed in his sleep but there was one thing seriously wrong. His left foot had been completely cut off, revealing his arteries, veins, bones and muscles. It had been a horrific shock for the maid when she found him. Asleep. Dead. Blood...everywhere. Right foot cut off. She felt the dolls foot in her pocket. She looked at it, in furious anger, swung her arm back, flicking the foot into the river. It had caused bad luck, it was unlucky. Slowly, she turned around and started off for the market, her basket held protectively against her and Michael walking by her side. ?? ?? ?? ?? Original Writing Coursework ...read more.
