Short Story

Extracts from this document...


Short Story - English GCSE Coursework. Security quickly rushed to the scene, pushing the crowd in all different directions to get to the madness. People drifted away from what they were doing to join the crowd whilst it was moving, following the action like a flock of sheep being herded into a pen. People were climbing onto furniture to try and get a better view of what was going on, the area around the crowd was literally empty apart from the odd couple of bags. There was a loud scream. The crowd split in to two groups as the security guards dragged a young blonde woman out, her arms and legs kicking. Trying to wriggle free she turned to the left, right and left again, it was no use, their grip was to tight. The crowd tried to follow what was happening, but were stopped near the stairs by more security. Her heels scraped along the marbled floor, leaving scuff marks were she had been, and making a shrill scratching sound like nails on a blackboard. They dragged her into a large circular room with a dark grey tiled floor, walls as black as night and ebony roof beams stretching across the dull roof. ...read more.


The door swung open, the room flooded with light again. She sat up, wiped her eyes and stopped sobbing. The silhouette appeared again; stepped into the room and slammed the door. Shivers went down her spine and she curled up into a ball, whimpering and sobbing. Click. A small orange light in the middle of the room flickered on and off. She lifted her head up slightly, what once was the silhouette was now an old creepy man. His hair, all straggly and matted, with a slight bald patch on the crown of his head. His eyes were big pools of darkness against his pale skin, his right eye kept twitching as he just stood, staring monotonously. He wore a blood drenched apron over a mucky yellow t-shirt, black trousers and blood splattered boots. She struggled for air as the stench of blood was overwhelming, gasping and trying to suck in oxygen. His boots squelched as he edged towards her, she turned to face the wall and covered her eyes as if she was having a nightmare. She slowly pulled away her shaky hands from her face, turned her head towards the centre of the room; it was empty. ...read more.


He flicked the switched, a small screen popped up and what seemed to be a heart monitored reading went across the screen, 'beep, beep, beep'. Small electric impulses sent down the wires into her body; she jumped and slumped into the chair. The readings went up and down, up and down, 'beep beep beep' and then back to normal. 'WHERE IS HE?' the man screeched, his high pitched voice went through her, the readings went up again 'beep beep beep' and then only dropped a little, beep beep, beep beep, her heart was beating faster and faster. A confused look came across her face, she didn't reply. 'WHERE IS HE?' he screeched again. 'BEEEEEEP! Beep beep beep!' 'I... I... I don't ....... I... I don't ....... I don't' she kept stuttering and found it difficult to say her words 'I don't know what... what....... You ....... Mmean' she stuttered whilst trying to get her breathe. 'OHH I'LL THINK YOU FIND YOU DO!' he yelled whilst walking to the metal table. 'BEEEP! BEEEEP! BEEEEEEP!' he picked up a rusted chisel and a small hammer. `oh god, im gonna die! Im gonna die!` her heart was beating faster and faster, going into overdrive. He lept towards her with his hand outstretched, pointing the chisel in her face. 'BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!'
