Extracts from this document...


Fred stepped out into the open corridor, his breath came short, and his eyes flickered across the walls. His hand slipped to his pocket, after a short moment of nervous fumbling, he withdrew his magnum. The chocolate on the outside was a smooth dark colour; he began to salivate, and accidentally dribbled on his ice cream. "NO!" he shouted to himself as he threw the ice cream blindly "I must not" the nurse from the next room stepped out to the corridor to find Fred sitting on the floor crying she then looked to the splattered ice cream that was now sliding down the window. "Come on Fred, it's alright" she said as she sat down next to him and put her arm round her "we'll get through this together." "NO!" he cried as he shook her arm off of him "I can do this by myself, I got myself into his mess I'll get out of it!" "It's not your fault, you were born with it and we can do this together" she looked out of the window and stared and the crumpled up magnum and thought how life was like Fred, crumpled up and confused. ...read more.

"What are you doing up here Fred?" Kat asked as she walked up to stand next to him. "Thinking" he replied quietly while looking up to the clear blue sky. "What are you thinking about?"
