Slumber Of Antagonism

Extracts from this document...


Daniel Kelly 11.MGO Slumber Of Antagonism A cold autumn breeze glided through the half open window. The icy wave travelled down the long dark room, caressing the walls before fading into nothingness. Not a light in the whole city house was alight. A deep darkness had settled in; and only the moon provided the slightest glint of light. In the room, beyond the darkness were a large single bed, bedside table, two large wooden units. A bookshelf and a wardrobe, with a large white furry rug smothering a royal blue carpet, The moon light just seeped through a small crack in the curtains. The light crept up the carpet, almost reaching the bed before a gentle breeze closed the curtains. Then the whole process repeated over. The lifeless body in the bed was lying in an awkward position. One arm was under his back, the other behind his head. His legs were crossed and his head thrown back. He was neither tall nor particularly short. His hair was of average length, and was left looking very scruffy. His face had a very disgruntled and confused look upon it as if he were figuring out a complex equation. He mumbled and a large grin appeared and he was left in a state of deep slumber, dreaming... ...read more.


He turned the shower on before climbing in. He stood there in the shower, the steaming water making him jump back occasionally until he got used to it and began to wash his hair and body, his only thought revolving around his dream. He asked himself over and over "But what if...?" and "What about if...". But before he could complete a sentence he told himself that it was just a dream and meant nothing and by doing so regain concentration and carried on scrubbing. He jumped out of the shower cubicle and wrapped a towel around him, following a well-known routine of drying up, getting dressed and doing his hair. He dipped a few fingers into the thick hair putty and rubbed it over his palm and running his fingers through his hair, he finished the style with the front of his hair sticking up slightly. Checking in the mirror that it was just right he grinned at his neatly finished hairstyle and washed his hands clean of any remaining gel and dried them on a towel hanging off a bar across the small radiator in the corner of the room. As per usual after this he went downstairs and began to prepare breakfast. He placed two pieces of bread inside the large shiny toaster and quickly snapped down the black handle before he span around and clicked on the kettle and prepared tea. ...read more.


As the road straightened up the man in the seat made a point of pressing his foot down. The cars' engine which was once purring like a cats on its owner's knee was now roaring through the country passage, sweeping leaves up in the air on its way. He sat back and smiled to himself, knowing he had overcome a deep and meaningful thought that had tormenting him. He had beaten it, defeated the demons that had been distracting him since the early hours of that morning. As he came to a small corner in the road he turned the steering wheel slowly, just noticing a bit of slippery black ice on the road, he quickly turned the wheel to the left sending the car flying, the axels underneath shattering from under it, the car rolled off the road into a barrel roll, the man inside was yelling and screaming. He looked up, his jaw hanging wide open only to see the dashboard of his car coming toward him at an amazing rate. He closed his eyes accepting his own death. His skull smashed into the metal frame, shattering the bone and tearing through layers of flesh. The car stopped rolling, landing on its roof. The broken twisted body lay inside the wreck. The unforgiving rain pummeled a group of mourners as they surrounded a tombstone that read "Sleep Well, Rest in Peace". The End ...read more.
