The ancient door creaked open as if it had never been opened for a thousand years. I looked around me for any sign of life but to my disappointment there was none around

Extracts from this document...


English Project 'The Listeners' MY TOPIC: Imagine that when the traveler knocks on the door repeatedly, there is an unexpected creak and the door opens. The traveler walks in slowly. What does he see? What does he do? Does he solve the mystery of the dark house in the forest? Or does the mystery deepen... THIS IS NOT A MOVIE UR WRITHING SCREEN PLAY FOR "KYO KI SAAS KI KABHI BAHOO THI" THE LISTENERS Is there anybody there?" said the Traveler, Knocking on the moonlit door; And his horse in the silence champed the grasses Of the forest's ferny floor. And a bird flew up out of the turret, Above the traveler's head: And he smote upon the door again a second time; "Is there anybody there?" he said. But no one descended to the Traveler; No head from the leaf-fringed sill Leaned over and looked into his gray eyes, where he stood perplexed and still. But only a host of phantom listeners That dwelt in the lone house then Stood listening in the quiet of the moonlight To that voice from the world of men: Stood thronging the faint moonbeams on the dark stair That goes down to the empty hall, Hearkening in an air stirred and shaken By the lonely Traveler's call. ...read more.


Other extremely strange things would happen at night in that old, lonely castle. I would see a little boy walking around and he would speak of his mother and father and how they said that the castle was haunted and that they were making plans of leaving and never returning again but I had never actually seen his parents. I always found it extremely weird when this boy appeared in front of me and every time I had tried to speak with him, he would scurry of like a scared rabbit. I'd convince myself that he was probably an urchin (sick word. Wag bone, gypsy is better) child who had no where else to go and thus sheltered himself in this abandoned castle just like me, but other extremely things started to make me dreadfully uneasy. In the middle of the night I would hear the piano playing melodious, soothing songs and I could actually see the keys moving smoothly along the piano but there would be no pianist. Then suddenly it would just drop to a dead silence and I would hear foot steps and the door banging shut. I wasn't sure about what to do. I knew I couldn't leave this place as I had no where else to go so I decided to get to the bottom of the baffling mystery of the old house. ...read more.


I was the ghost that was haunting that castle and frightening the family that was living there...but I couldn't see them...and they could not see me as we were both in two separate worlds with no contact. I moved away from the priest that sustained to read deafeningly and his words echoed through the creaky house. I kept advancing backwards...further and further away from the alien tongue until I was faced with a white light...I was swallowed by it and I reached total ecstasy. Ok lot of shit! Please stop using slang's and all those dillos Do not using things like don't (its incorrect in essays you can only use them in direct speech) And all numbers have to be in word form and not in digit form. Overall the idea is nice and everything but you need to read to improve. Main thing: Never have a essay which is more than 1500 words describing only one day. You have too much detail so if you cut down on the detail you can make it into 2-3 days. Ideally you should have 500 words per day. And don't (I mean do not) describe each and every breath you take. Ok all the best for MODY TELEFILSM: youll be good at screen play coz I can understand ur trying to produce tht vivid description but its not flow too much. (use books to build English, not movies). Remember Your not alone....definitely not alone. (lol) ...read more.
