The Angel

Extracts from this document...


The Angel By Lucy Jones. 38 Seymour Road, Exmouth, Devon, EX8 3JG Age 13. "Yippee!" My sister shrieked avidly from inside the living room. I gently put down the half eaten packet of crisps I had in my hand then speedily ran in through to the living room where my mother and my sister sat getting the Christmas decorations out of their brown crinkled box. "Ohhhh!" I moaned. "I told you to tell me when you were going to begin to put the tree together!" "Alright don't make such a fuss of it, we've only just got started, come and join us now," My mother told me, a visible frown imprinted on her forehead. I walked over to the Christmas tree in an agitated fashion. I gently picked up a glistening angel and popped it on top of the tree. However, something looked different to usual, something had changed, but I couldn't work out what! Maybe the smile had changed? Yes it had. Instead of a bright and cheery smile, a sad and un-welcoming smile had taken its place. ...read more.


I couldn't work it out though, I couldn't work out what this whisper was saying. It repeated its self over and over again. Something like, "Give me my... give me my...," but I couldn't work out what the last word was. Then all of a sudden, my heart started to beat, dun dun dun, faster than it had ever beaten before, deep shots of pain started to shoot up and down my left arm. I finally managed to croak out "Mum!" She came running frantically up to me with my medication. "My heart!" I whimpered. She quickly gave me some white rounded pills, and after a minute my heart returned back to normal again. Mum tried to comfort me through my tears of shock, but all I wanted was to go and have a relaxing early night in my warm snug bed. That night I couldn't get to sleep though. I was tossing and turning until suddenly a weird sensation crept over my body. ...read more.


Mum had always and will always refuse to believe in ghosts. I didn't say anything but I did believe her and I now have a funny feeling that the whisper was saying, "Give me my heart!" My aunts friends spirit was inside the angel! I awoke the next day, feeling a spurt of excitement race through my body, it was Christmas! I hadn't slept a wink but I had thought of a plan to mild the anger of the spirit, trapped in side the angel. I wasn't quite sure it would work, although I intended to give the angel what it wanted, so it could finally leave... in peace. When the whole family was around the tree, it was finally my turn to have my presents. My mum handed me a shiny, silver box. "You know what's inside but I wrapped it anyway," She told me, looking proud. Inside I found a gold heart on a slender string wrapped in crisp layers of pink tissue paper I pulled it out and very carefully placed it around the angel's neck and I'm sure I saw a slight smile cloud over her face as if to say, "Thank you..." ...read more.
