Shor tStory - A girl named Tara

Extracts from this document...


Olga Lagowska Mr. Hill English A 16 January 2009 A girl named Tara It was a dark night, darker than a piece of coal. The moon was hiding behind the clouds. It was raining; the drops of rain had a silvery luster. The wind was bending the trees. Only a very few passers-by were on the streets. In the house at the end of the street, was dark. It was the biggest house at the street, even more, the biggest house in the town. The house was built a very long time ago; even the oldest people do not remember that. And in this house in the window was sitting a girl. It looked that she was crying from a longer time. The tears streamed down her face. Tara was a practical girl who did not need many things to live.

He worked at the town�s hospital but lost his job while drinking alcohol in working hours. He always had a weakness to alcohol and never tried to do something about it. At the beginning he tried to find another job. It was hard because it was a small town and had just one hospital.
