The forgotten child

Extracts from this document...


The forgotten child. He was choking, gasping for air, his throat grew tighter and tighter, the swelling on his neck grew rapidly, in less than a minute he was on the floor gasping for his last breath. Catherine froze in fear, she knew there was nothing she could do, it could not be stopped. Her arms were wrapped tightly around him, she could feel his heart pounding faster and faster against hers, as he fought for his breath. He reached out towards the cold, slippery wall and dug his nails in deep, like he was trying to hang on to life. "Help! Help do something Please, please, please help him, I'm begging you," she screamed, "Can't you see he is dying." She begged in desperation to the sly, unshaven man in the corner, who sat motionless staring as if he could not see what was happening. As she pleaded for help, she felt James go limp in her arms his life slipping away. Her hands dropped and his body fell with a thud to the floor, she knew he had taken his last breath. ...read more.


The body of missing school child James Goddard was found by the search party Monday 6pm, there was no trace of the little girl Catherine, police are now treating this as a murder enquiry." The room that Catherine was held in was in the shape of an arch, made out of corrugated iron and it was cold to touch.

He took a large bite out of his bacon bap and carried on with his conversation with the policeman stood next to him.

His vacant face stared through the police officer's car window, he knew this was the end. He showed no sign of regret or even remorse, His teaching days were over, he would no longer teach Biology. Now he was caught, I just hoped my body would be found, and I could rest in peace. I was the first of all 9 of his victims. Luckily Catherine survived the other 8 did not. The memory of what he did to me still lingers in that old air-raid shelter, I can still hear the screams of all the children who were ever held there. Sometimes I come down and sit on his seat, the one I was not allowed to sit on. I see the room in a different perspective, I see him, and me, and little Milly, then I see what he did to her, and I could not stop it, and I sob, I sob for all eight of his victims, then I smile, I smile for the ninth, I smile for Catherine.
